S’pore fails to honour Lee Kuan Yew by winning less than 91 gold medals in SEA Games 2015

Posted on 16 June 2015

Athletes demanded to reflect on their lack of sincerity.


Singaporean athletes have been told to reflect on their abysmal SEA Games 2015 performance.

This after the nation’s sports men and women clinched less than 91 gold medals needed to honour Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy and finished second behind Thailand in total medals haul.

One sports official, Pai Ma Pi, said: “This result of 84 gold medals is seven short of 91. We have no idea why we would ever need 84 gold medals.”

“Previously, we had already urged the athletes to stop at 50 gold medals to be in line with the SG50 theme but they did not heed our advice despite warnings that they might be required to return all medals above the required 50.”

“Now 84 gold medals is not here, not there. We cannot do anything about this number as there is no significance.”

“I seriously doubt the sincerity of our athletes in making Singapore look good.”

At press time, sports officials are planning additional competitions just before SEA Games 2015 closing ceremony, such as spelling bee and tic-tac-toe, for Singapore to excel in to make up for the gold medal shortfall.


Not with the programme:
