Singapore Gymnastics to hold selection trials for boys and girls
24 Oct 2017
AGU Media, DOHA (QAT): The Singapore Gymnastics (SG) will conduct a selection trial on November 18 to identify talents, who can represent Singapore at major international competitions including South East Asian, Asian and Olympic Games in future.
The gymnasts will undergo a trial conducted by the national coaches and to have an understanding of each child’s aptitude and current abilities in the sport.
The selection trial is suitable for boys and girls from seven years old and above and 7-9-year-old (MAG).
Singapore had failed to win any medal in artistic, but claimed a bronze in the rhythmic mixed apparatus (two ropes and three balls) event at the 29th SEA Games in August.
It was the first time in five editions — gymnastics was not in 2009 and 2013 editions — that Singapore didn’t win a gold, but SG President Choy Kah Kin remained positive.
“There’s a little disappointment, but they’ve really done their best,” he said.
Besides, SG is also organising a Level 1 coaching course for the beginners from December 1-10.
