READY TO ROAR: (From far right) Adam Swandi and Irfan Fandi are among the 43 players eyeing a spot in the 20-man squad.

The Singapore men’s Under-23 football team have targeted gold at this year’s South-east Asia (SEA) Games in front of their own fans.

The 28th SEA Games will be held here from June 5 to 16, and as the excitement level builds, coach Aide Iskandar and a squad of 26 are currently in Turkey as part of their preparations for the tournament. 

Yesterday, the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) released the names of athletes in the first round of the selection process for the Games, and amid a long list of team sports are a 43-strong football squad.

Fandi Ahmad’s sons, Irfan and Ikhsan, and The New Paper’s Dollah Kassim award-winners Ammirul Emmran Mazlan (2010), Adam Swandi (2011) and R Aaravin (2012) are in the squad, which will eventually be trimmed to 20.

New champ on the bowling block

"She may not be a star like Jazreel, Shayna or Cherie; but Hui Fen has been the one who has consistently been in medal contention and winning medals at major championships." - National bowling coach Remy Ong on New Hui Fen (above).

Singapore coach Remy Ong described her as a “media outcast”, a bowler who does not make the headlines as often as the likes of Jazreel Tan, Shayna Ng and Cherie Tan.

Maybe, New Hui Fen has had enough of playing bridesmaid.

Using a new ball — the only one of seven that wasn’t initially registered — New stormed to victory in the Asian Bowling Championships' women’s Masters event in Bangkok yesterday.

The 22-year-old beat South Korean Son Yun Hee 270-193 pinfalls  in the deciding game to claim her second gold medal at the tournament, after helping Singapore win the women's trios last week.

New’s 16-game qualifying score of 4,038 pinfalls smashed the previous record of 3,751 set by South Korean Choi Jin-A in 2008.
