It is turning out to be a fantastic year for 14-year-old shooter Martina Lindsay Veloso.

In June, she became the first Singaporean to win a World Cup event when she won the women's 10m air rifle event at the ISSF World Cup (Rifle) in Munich, Germany.

Last month, at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, she qualified for the final and finished a creditable fifth.

Yesterday, at the second Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, Martina won Singapore's first medal of the Games when she bagged silver in the 10m air rifle at the Fangshan Shooting Hall.

Kazuki Sakamoto.

The last time they took on Home United in the 2014 Great Eastern-Yeo's S.League, Albirex Niigata produced one of their best displays of the season to claim a 4-2 win at the Jurong East Stadium back in April.

With 68 minutes on the clock, the contest was all but over as the White Swans raced to a four-goal lead courtesy of a Kazuki Sakamoto brace and goals from Kazuya Okazaki and Shuhei Hotta, before Home managed to grab two goals from Lee Kwan Woo.

Tonight, it will be a completely different proposition for him.

Pejic returns to club duty for the Warriors, who entertain second-from-bottom Courts Young Lions in the Great Eastern-YEO's S.League.
