At most, they had the potential but there are tons of these players back at home waiting for the chance to make it to the national squad. Many were proviincial champions, league champions, etc. and only a handful make it to the national squad. Even then, only the cream of them get to represent the country. Sadly, many don't get to realise their dream of representing their homeland. Along the way, some get the opportunity to go overseas to play and eventually represent the host country. So, to say that they are just are not our players is not fair to them. We trained them, groomed them, gave them every opportunites to play at the international arena to pit their skills against other foreign players which otherwise they would never have hoped to achieve if they still remain in China. All the efforts at our end bear dividends and we should be proud of them. Come on, lets give credit where it is due.

    Some Singaporeans also claim that our sports associations are not grooming locals and resort to importing foreigners as a short cut. I dun think it is entirely true that the policy is to import foreigners. Just look at any of our sports. How many of us Singaporean are willing to play take part in a particular sports full time rather than mixed playing part time and at the same time get a tertiary education? To many, sports can never be their bread and butter and a paper at least can ensure that they get a job till they retire. Studying and training during free time is not the way to go. U can never reach the top this way. Over the years, with a pool of local players who had to juggle training with studies, how do u expect our standard to be like what we see today?

    All the reason why Singapore shouldnt be winning an sporting competition. Because the lifestyle here CANNOT groom Sporting Champions. WE are not a society to excel in this, unless major change is on the cards. And importing people from elsewhere, is just a shortcut no matter how you look at it. Born and bred Singaporeans whom are sporting heroes are a dying breed. But Singapore likes to take the shortcut and inflate everything, because this is what we are about... Its all WAYANG, to show that we are the best in EVERYTHING which in reality, we fall short.

    Yes but the game is not ping pong. The game is kiasuness where we are undisputed world champions for decades.

    i wonder if these TT girls would just return their SG citizenship and move elsewhere if the price is right...

    if SG can buy sporting talent... so can others. and if this do happened, then what would you say? or maybe some would just dimiss it as "Easy come, easy go".
