Newsbreak: Rainer Ng wins silver in YOG 50m backstroke final!

Amazing stuff!  Swimmer Rainer Ng has just won the silver in the Men’s 50m backstroke final at the Youth Olympics!

The 18-year-old clocked 26.45sec to finish just 0.09sec behind Christian Homer of Trinidad & Tobago.

Fantastic stuff!

The irony is that Rainer’s winning time was slower than the 26.37sec he clocked in the semi-finals yesterday which enabled him to advanced into the final as the second-fastest swimmer.

That time was also a new national record.

Rainer himself was cautious about his chances today despite his time yesterday because he suspected that some of the swimmers may have held themselves back to save up for today’s final.

But his fears never materialised the moment he plunged backwards into the water tonight.

Rainer’s silver-medal win also means that he is starting to reap the rewards from his decision to skip his studies for a year to focus on the YOG and the Asian Games in Guangzhou in November. The 18-year-old Raffles Institution student, who was supposed to take his A levels this year, left school in January.

His triumph is Singapore’s third medal win at the YOG following Nurul SHafinas Abdul Rahman and Daryl Tan’s bronzes in taekwondo.

My heartiest congratulations to Rainer. What a fantastic swim, and what a tremendous effort by this determined and dedicated athlete!

Take a bow, Rainer. You’ve done Singapore proud! And now, here’s wishing you all the best for November’s Asian Games
