Joseph Schooling Gold For Olympic Rio Games 2016

The amazing win by Joseph Schooling is probably old news to many raving fans out there but I am still proud to announce that Joseph Isaac Schooling  is the Olympic Rio Games 2016 Men’s 100m Butterfly Gold Winner.

The 21 year old Singaporean won with style as he touched the wall in 50.39 seconds, beating the legendary Michael Phelps who finished in 51.14 seconds, together with South Africa’s Chad le Clos and Hungarian Laszlo Cseh. Singaporeans had never felt so proud before.

Since his win, he has been the talk of the town especially in Singapore and I have seen countless interviews of Joseph and his parents, Colin and May Schooling, both on TV and on social media.

It was a glorious moment for the family and even more for the country, a little red dot called Singapore.

And while the win was definitely a moment to be proud of, I just want to share that it probably took more than 50 seconds for Schooling to win the proudest moment for Singapore.

As I watched on Channel News Asia’s program on Schooling’s journey to success, I learned that he actually wanted to swim at a very young age. If I recall correctly, he told his dad he wanted to hit tusly to pursue his dream to be an Olympic champion.

The program showed how Schooling had to wake up every day at 5.30am for his training of 320 laps, and then to attend school to complete his education. With such a hectic schedule, I believe that his dream of being an Olympic champion is what kept him strong and determined.

Of course, this dream would also not be possible if not for his parents’ unwavering support and believe in him. His dad shared that since Joseph made the decision to swim, he supported him all out.

I am totally inspired by this young man not only because he has done Singapore proud, but also because he has a very strong spirit for me to learn from. I think he has truly demonstrated that with a big dream, laser sharp focus, lots of training and determination, dreams can really come true. Words simply cannot describe his success at this moment in time.

Thank you Joseph for showing us that everything is possible no matter how small we are.

Thank you for showing us that it takes guts, determination and a lot of hard work to pursue and realise our dreams.

And thank you Joseph Schooling for making us Singaporeans truly proud of who we can be.

You truly rock! And here’s the defining moment for us all…
