Fifty Years in the Making

The Olympics often throws up great stories of individuals who manage to overcome odds to not only win individual honours, but also an honour for their country that is incredibly rare. While nations like Australia are coming down hard on athletes who claim a bronze rather than a gold, or simply place in a final, some nations still embody the Olympic spirit and are proud of their representatives pitting their skills against the best in the world, and celebrate them making a final let alone winning a medal.

Singapore one of the smallest nations competing popped up with their first medal since the Rome Games in 1960 last night, a wait of 52 years, and no doubt they are celebrating. Feng Tianwei was the lady to break their drought when she won bronze in the Women’s Table tennis. Her victory coming courtesy of a 4-0 win over Japan’s Kasumi Ishikawa.

Congratulations, and enjoy the moment, as no doubt a nation is extremely proud of you.
