SJF Atheletes' Commission
"To ensure that athletes welfare, wellbeing, and representation of the team Voice."

"I wish to provide the perspective of youth athletes in discussions."
A stalwart in the Singapore Judo scene, my career as an athlete representing the nation in a number or regional championships, culminating in bringing home the bronze medals in the - 95kg and Open weight categories at the Chiang Mai SEA games in 1995. Since then, I have dedicated my life to coaching and enriching future generations of Judoka, grooming several national representatives in the process. I am currently the Head coach of the Raffles family of schools, Singapore Institute of Management, and Singapore University of Social Sciences.
With my experience as an athlete, coach, and administrator, I hope to be able to bridge the conversation between the athlete body and the administrative body.

"I want to represent my teammates as I can see myself value-adding by being in the Athletes' Commission."
"I wish to represent the best interests of my fellow Judo athletes in our community."
"I would like to use my voice to represent other athletes in the team, especially students or those currently working. Hopefully, we will be able to build a more cohesive and bonded team together."
"As a regular athlete in the squad, I hope to contribute to the team by collaborating with the other athletes in the AC to ensure that the welfare and interests of the athletes in the national squad are made known and addressed openly."
"I wish to run for the Judo Athletes' Commission as it would allow the players of the team to be able to be a part of the decision making process in order for both the team and the organization (SJF) can agree and come to terms on certain hot button issues.
The welfare of the athletes should also be important to the organization , as it would allow the higher ups to understand the athlete's point of view. Thus, enabling the organization the have more options to consider before making the final decision."
