Singapore Sports Awards
Singapore Sports Awards 2014
The Singapore Sports Awards were introduced by the National Olympic Council in 1967 to recognize the achievements of our sportsmen and sportswomen locally, regionally and international. Then-President of the SNOC, Mr. Othman Wok wanted to reward and encourage Singaporean athletes with much-needed support. During the 1960s, Singapore’s principal energies were directed towards academics. However, Mr. Othman understood that a strong nation would have to include physically strong and healthy people. The Awards program was later expanded to include Sportsboy and Sportsgirl and Meritorious Awards for Junior athletes. Some of Singapore’s rising stars have received these awards and gone on to achieve international glory for Singapore.
Singapore’s sports fraternity came together on 7 June 2014 to honour the nation’s top athletes for their outstanding performance in 2013.
