MustShareMail: Let Joseph Schooling Train For Competitions Daily During NS
An Open Letter to Ministry of Defence, Singapore (MINDEF)
This is the chance for you to score a HUGE PR WIN.
Offer Joseph Schooling the chance to serve National Service (NS), while you REVIVE your dying/dead Singapore Armed Forces Sports Association (SAFSA) programme.
Use Jo as your poster boy.
6am: Reveille + breakfast
7:30am: First training session at camp pool
9:30am – 3:30pm: Office work
5pm: Second session (Pool or gym)
9pm: Admin time
10pm: Lights out
He will win the SEA Games, Asian Games, and maybe even the Commonwealth Games next year AS A FULL-TIME NATIONAL SERVICEMAN (NSF)!
You can claim that a Singapore Armed Forces soldier brought glory to Singapore while serving NS.
If Jo needs a training partner, post (national swimmer) Quah Zheng Wen to the same programme as him and the two world-class swimmers can push each other in training every day.
HUGE win for everyone involved.
I understand that this is not the usual NS routine but we have a once-in-a-generation talent and so some flexibility can be exercised.
LET’S NOT SCREW THIS UP!
