A Div Long Jump: With last leap, Hwa Chong’s Tedd Toh claims gold

Tedd Toh is perhaps fondly remembered for his animated antics, but he was uncharacteristically silent right before his sixth and final attempt in the A Division boys' long jump competition at the 60th National Schools Track and Field Championship.

SEA Games Track & Field: Dipna Lim Prasad cracks 43-year 400m national record; Michelle Sng ends high jump gold drought

Dipna clocked 54.18 seconds, erasing the previous mark of 55.08s that Chee Swee Lee set at the 1974 Asian Games in Tehran on her way to winning gold. Michelle was awarded the gold medal, along with Vietnam's Duong Thi Viet Ahn, after a successful appeal -- this was Singapore's first SEA Games gold in the women's high jump since 1965.

National C Div Rugby: ACS(I) beat Saints 25-10 to complete 2nd straight Grand Slam

Spotting clean shaven heads for the final, ACS(I) got off to a fast start, with hooker Gavin Ong cutting through the Saints defence to score a very early try that was converted. The St Andrew boys threatened to mount a comeback in the second half with two tries from Joedan Chan, but a penalty and then a fourth ACS(I) try in the closing minutes of the game snuffed out any possible danger.

NYSI Basketball: SIM beat NUS for inaugural men’s league win

This was supposed to be a recreational basketball league among mainly tertiary institutions to give youths a platform to play and compete in their pre-season, except it’s anything but. The final 68-54 score meant SIM defeated NUS to become men’s champions of the inaugural National Youth Sports Institute (NYSI) Basketball League, but it also meant SIM’s graduating seniors got to “avenge” their loss at last year’s Singapore University Games (SUniG).
