This video. This man. This year's Olympics.

So much inspiration.

I think Schooling's win has really set the precedence for many big things to come for our country. To not just punch, but whack and explode a ceiling and do things that has never been done before - this is what will wake people up and prove that there are dreams and aspirations worth pursuing. Institutions and corporations are going to give more support for goals that weren't cherished before.

The cynics, who stand on the periphery to snarl and scowl, shall now cower and hide. For the man in the ring who fought bravely and valiantly has emerged triumphant - very much to the skeptics' dismay, but to the delight of many others who know what the fight is worth.

I remember watching Germany win the World Cup last year and wishing for a day when my own little country could rejoice in something as delightful as that.

The day has come, and indeed, Singapore rejoiced and is still revelling in the spirit of the win.

I'll remember this day for many years to come - when my mother was jumping up and down and I was shouting in the living room.

Gold.

Amazing how sport can unite a nation. And that's what I love about the Olympics. Every four years, emotions run high and the thirst for gold is almost tangible. We cry for both the winners and losers, in victory and defeat, through joy and hardship. It represents the very human spirit.

I think it also represents the very best of us. The road is long and hard, but keep at it and I think surely, the world will see, know and feel what is already in us.


Argh, that video truly hit all the right notes. The music, the natural sound, the CINEMATOGRAPHY and the final message. Captivating and thoroughly moving. Always makes me feel like moving my butt and doing what I really should do when I see this man go through all that shit. Wondering why I'm even just watching something through a small screen.

What. Am I waiting for?
