Ser confident of golden haul

Peter Lee won the only gold in Singapore's four-medal shooting haul back at the 1993 SEA Games.

But Jasmine Ser is confident that, next year, she and the other shooters can emulate, even surpass, that.

"With the team we have now, I know that we are able to get more medals next year," said the Olympian.

The 23-year-old also believes that having the SEA Games on home ground is an opportunity for the public to see how intense the shooting events can be.

"Shooting isn't much of a spectator sport, so having the event in your own backyard will be a chance to show the spectators what shooting is really like," she said.

Despite her bold claims, Ser isn't bothered by the obvious pressure to perform.

She said: "There is definitely more pressure, but to me that is just extra motivation to win more medals for Singapore."
