Feng, you are fantastic! Ignore those narrow minded netizens. The very moment you choose to play for Singapore, you are one of us. Well done!
it doesn't matter where she is origin , this is a sports game , Standing aside with the China's players , with the Singapore Flag , she make us proud ! The best gift for our national day ! Hope China will work with our little country more closely..if we should wake up , we should understand we are just a red dot....look further , think bigger and dun ask too much!
Congratulation Ms. Feng Tianwei..
personally i do hope that Singapore can really look into her own nation sports talent and essentials to help the true talent to make SIngapore proud..
Hope that Ms Feng's achievement motivates mo****poreans who could play well to represent SIngapore 1 fine day..
and to all Olympians, all the best ..Cheers!!!
We waited 52 years for this medal. We are confident you and your team will bring back another medal in the team event starting tomorrow. We are always behind you and your team. Cheers and best of luck to all of you.
Sammy curry.... .very true of ur statements..... wat's wrong with having a foreign sportsman/ sportswoman representing our country when there's no one else who's willing to make the huge sacrifices as a national team player? C'mon s'poreans, Tianwei's spent a considerable amount of time in our country and every medal or accolade she's won, she does it with the pride we have as a S'porean. Tianwei, u're our pride & glory and we'll be right behind you with every competition u face.... I'm proud of YOU..... cheers
My a China Born Singaporean who won a medal for Singapore.
But First of all Congratulation Ms. Feng Tianwei. I am sure that you did your best to get the
Bronze Medal... Well done, and good for you....for your effort. does not matter which country you came from, well done with you...
But for the Singaporean, its shameful that we have to buy these talents to get some form of medals...recognition of olympic glory...etcs etcs etcs...
if these sportsman dont do well, they are stripped of their citizenship... and sent back to where they came from.....
but unfortunately, that is singapore for you.... always think they can buy talent.... hey where is Ronald Susilo - originally from Indonesia??? i have not heard of him playing in this olympic???
But to the athelics that compete and win, good job for your effort.... even if you are foreign born....
it is your effort that count and not the country that endorses you......
