The Women’s Floorball Team with award presenter, Mr Chia Boon Leong, former footballer and the first Singaporean to play football at Olympics in 1948.
Singapore, 22 May 2019 – Nexia TS congratulates the Singapore’s National Women’s Floorball team for its recognition of achievement at the Singapore Sports Awards 2019 held on 14 May 2019. The awards ceremony was graced by Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Speaker of Parliament and President of the Singapore National Olympic Council, as the Guest-of-Honour to present the awards to the deserving winners.
The national team was awarded the Meritorious Award (Team) for its resounding victory against Thailand to clinch the win at the first Women’s Asia Oceania Floorball Cup held in Singapore last year. The win clearly demonstrates the team’s foundation of personal integrity, hard work and unwavering determination as they received the award from former football star, Mr Chia Boon Leong, the first Singaporean to compete for China in the 1948 Summer Olympics and for Singapore in the 1954 Asian Games.
The national team is scheduled to compete in a series of tournaments including the upcoming 30th Southeast Asian Games in Philippines and the 12th Women’s World Floorball Championships in Neuchatel, Switzerland, later this year.
“Singapore Sports Awards is an excellent platform for our athletes to be recognised for their sporting achievements hence spurring their sporting careers to greater heights. That is why platforms like these are important for all of us to be inspired by their hard work which is critical to our roles as a corporate citizen to contribute in any ways we can by supporting financially and promoting the growing sport on world stage. Being the major sponsor of the National Women’s Floorball team, I’m proud to congratulate the deserving win and their spirit of excellence.”
Henry Tan, Group CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, Nexia TS
