Host S’pore expected to win more unexpected gold medals this SEA Games 2015

Posted on 04 June 2015

Host countries always win more unexpected golds because that’s how sports is fair.


Host Singapore is expected to win more unexpected gold medals this SEA Games 2015, said athletes, coaches, sports fans and government officials from Singapore who reiterated that they are ready for any unprecedented haul of medals.

This after Singapore’s synchronised swimming team won the Republic’s first-ever gold in the SEA Games, dethroning reigning champions Malaysia, and Singapore’s first gold in fencing came from the same day of events, which will then be followed in the next few days of competition by golds in netball and floorball, which are all the events that the other countries are equally bad at so that’s why it is fair for Singapore.

Ying Dao Wan, a local sports athlete, said: “As the host for the SEA Games 2015, Singapore is expecting to win more unexpected gold medals because that’s what host countries do and this is a demonstration of how sports is fair and meritocratic.”

“It’s is really about embracing the spirit of the Games by playing games with the rules and organisation of tournaments so that it doesn’t look like it is in favour of the home ground but it is.”

“This will also help Singapore demonstrate how to have a massive medal haul but still remain humble in the face of victory and complete annihilation of our competitors.”

At press time, Singaporeans from all walks of life said they are looking forward to more unexpected silver and bronze medals as well, as these unexpected medals needed to be won by the host country as well, or else, what’s the point of hosting the SEA Games.
