*During the 2019 Singapore Sports Awards that was held on 14 May, Dilenjit Singh from The New Paper was announced as the winner. Representatives from the judging panel then alerted SportSG to a possible mistake on Wednesday, 15 May. Upon investigation, SportSG confirmed that the winning articles were matched to the wrong journalist. This was an administrative error by a member of the SportSG staff. The award ceremony’s auditor, KPMG in Singapore, was not involved in this part of the process.
