Newsbreak: Singapore win two more bronzes through windsurfer Audrey Yong and the Cubs

The reports:

Singapore has won two more bronzes today – in windsurfing and football.

Audrey Yong finished third in the Giurls Techno 293 competition at East Coast Park on a generally disappointing day for Singapore’s sailors while the Singapore Cubs made up for their shock 0-2 loss to Haiti on Sunday by beating Montenegro 4-1 tonight for the bronze.

But Isabelle Li and Clarence Chew bowed out of the quarter-finals of the table tennis mixed team competition. They lost 1-2 to Japan this afternoon. It was a commendable result though. And the third game was particularly thrilling. Singapore were trailing 0-2 before thei bounced back to win the next two sets to make it 2-2.

However, I think that effort must have taken a bit out of them because Japan then stormed back to win the fifth set and advance into the semis.

My heartiest congratulations to both Audrey and the Cubs and kudos to Isabelle and Clarence.

Here are the reports of their triumphs from The Straits Times website.

Cubs beat Montenegro 4-1

(The Straits Times Online, 25 Aug 2010)

By Gerard Wong

SINGAPORE midfielder Hanafi Mohamed Akbar finally broke his duck in the Youth Olympic Games football competition as the Singapore Cubs defeated Montenegro 4-1 on Wednesday night to clinch the bronze medal.

Hanafi, who failed to find the net in Singapore’s three earlier matches, scored twice in front of a crowd that was visibly smaller than the 6,000-strong throng that had packed Jalan Besar Stadium to watch Singapore beat Montenegro 3-2 last Tuesday and lose 0-2 to Haiti in the semi-finals on Sunday.

But this time, the fans were rewarded for their unwavering faith in the Singapore youngsters.

And Singapore responded appropriately by taking just six minutes to break the deadlock through Hanafi, who picked up a pass and brushed aside his markers before slotting the ball past Montenegro goalkeeper Marko Kordic.

However, the Cubs’ joy was shortlived. Two minutes after the goal, skipper Jeffrey Lightfoot suffered a bad cut on his head and had to be substituted.

The situation worsened two minutes later when Montenegro equalised through Jovan Baosic. The defender was unmarked when a freekick was floated in and had all the time in the world to power his header past Singapore keeper Fashah Rosedin.

The match ended 1-1 at half-time.

Hanafi then scored his second goal of the match and tournament five minutes after the break when he received Bryan Neubronner’s cross at the edge of the Montenegro box and slammed his shot past Kordic.

Singapore made it 3-1 in the 56th minute after they were awarded a penalty. Referee Norbert Hauata had apparently spotted a Montenegro player tugging at the jersey of one of the Singapore players and pointed to the spot.

Midfielder Ammirul Mazlan then sent Kordic the wrong way to give Singapore a comfortable lead.

Ammirul then made it a night to remember for the Cubs and the Jalan Besar faithful when he headed Hanafi’s 65th-minute freekick into the Montenegro net to make it 4-1.

Windsurfer Audrey grabs a bronze

(The Straits Times Online, 25 Aug 2010)

SINGAPORE’S sailing campaign at the Youth Olympic Games ended on a disappointing note after windsurfer Audrey Yong emerged the only medal winner at the East Coast Park on Wednesday afternoon.

Audrey, 15, who started the day in fifth place, finished third in the last race of the Girls Techno 293, behind Veronica Fanciulli of Italy and Anastasiya Valkevic of Belarus.

The strong finish enabled the Mayflower Secondary School student to pip Naomi Cohen of Israel to the final spot on the podium. Audrey finished with 43 points, ahead of Naomi who had 46.

Runaway leader Siripon Kaewduang-ngam of Thailand, took it easy on Wednesday and finished fourth. It was easy to see why: she had already sealed the gold on the penultimate day on Tuesday with her seven race wins. Veronica took silver with 39 points.

Audrey’s medal partly made up for the disappointing performance of compatriot and gold-medal hope Darren Choy who did not finish in the top three of the Boys Byte CII competition.

The 16-year-old double-world Byte champion, who was sixth after Tuesday’s races, needed a very strong finish to salvage his medal hopes. But he came in 12th instead, a result that dropped him to seventh overall on the leaderboard. The gold went to his arch-rival Ian Barrows of the US Virgin Islands.

Fiorian Haufe of Germany took silver while Just van Annholt of the Netherlands Antiles finished third.

Singapore’s Natasha Yokoyama finished third in her final Girls Byte CII race but ended up fifth overall. The gold was won by Lara Vadlau of Austria.
