I don't think it is because the players are from China "A lesser place" that is why some of us are not shouting for joy.... In fact China is honestly much superior than us in many aspects.
I think rather it is disturbing that Coach is PRC Chinese, Players are all PRC Chinese. Oh yes we forgot to mention that they were given Pink ICs to clear the red tape that they are our citizens. And how many like them have decided to return back to their motherland after not being able to deliver the results. The American Sudanese Refugee escaped from Sudan and I really don't think that runner will be going anyway but stay in the States. Our FTs on the other hand have a tendency to pack up and leave after their "stint". Loyalty to Singapore? Citizenship? Its a "what? Pink IC.. here it is, return it to you... Glorious Motherland of China, into your embrace I return to"
Yes the Nation won a medal. The national anthem gets played.... we Singaporeans cry and weep for joy... while the rest of the world and China sniggers at how we send China Team B to win the medal for us. So what sport is next that we are going to use such an heavy dependence on foreign talent? Honestly call me unpatriotic but I find nothing great to be happy about at the circumstances in which we won the medal.
