Thanks for the memories

The SEA Games leave a big mark on both athletes and spectators


It hasn't fully hit me that the Games are over yet... But we get back to the pool tomorrow and we will see how empty it is.

I think, then, it will finally sink in.

I feel that the Games bring everyone together and I am very proud of Team Singapore.

The crowds cheering and shouting really created the atmosphere. It was so much better than watching on TV.

It touches my heart to see the athletes giving their all. I'll continue supporting them even as they compete in other competitions in other nations.
