This post is in remembrance of the five rowers, Mr Chee Wei Cheng (20), Mr Reuben Kee En Rui (23), Mr Jeremy Goh Tze Xiong (24), Mr Poh Boon San (27) and Mr Stephen Loh Soon Ann (31), from the Singapore Dragon Boat Team who lost their young precious lives in the Tonle Sap River, Cambodia, on 23rd November 2007.
Your fierce passion for the sport can be understood. Rest in peace.
"And from now on, every dragon boat that sails with a Singapore flag will sail in honour of each of these fine young men."
Euology from Dr Vivian BalaKrishnan, Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports, at the joint memorial service held at Mandai Crematorium yesterday.
