    Pretty well known fact that the top distance runner on the US track and field team is a Sudanese refugee. Actually imported Olympic athletes feature in many many countries teams. The Dutch Tornado sailing team helmsman Mitch Booth is actually Australian by birth. One of the guys on the US basketball team is actually born in UK. It's become quite common for Olympic athletes to adopt a country to play the system and has been going on since the 1980s.

    We are questioning the evidence of "no one" talking bad about such moves. Not seeking evidence on the actuality of such imports.

    That's not what I meant lah. That's always the loss of morale and confidence for the next competition. Since we have already achieved what we want to achieve, the burden and stress will be off the player's shoulder.

    yes, IMO, i think this is a good reminder from goon as we congratulate OUR TEAM.

    Don't close this, most of us are happy about the win!!!

    Highlights for the game would be at 10pm on Channel 5. Starhub showing full set replay now.

    This semi-finals has got to be one of the best table tennis games I've ever watched in my life.

    Very fast paced game, but I think Feng Tianwei's style really takes the cake - calm, composed, and a good balance of conservative and aggressive moves., I recorded the entire game on my PC though.

    Kudos to the Singapore team!!

    Yes, worth watching the replay as it was one of the most hotly contested semi-finals. Was watching it with bated breath with my 4-month old baby in my arms and I jumped for joy when we won the game point!

    Feng Tian Wei really withstood the pressure very well and did Team Singapore proud! I think she deserves the 'SPORTSWOMAN OF THE YEAR' Award. She outshines her more famous team-mate Lee Jia Wei by a mile. Hope Teo Ser Luck who's present among the supporters will consider that

    Now, what time will the Finals be on Sunday? Hope it doesn't clash with PM's rally speech!

    I think it's to remind the players that their returns must be within 13 shots or something...
