School Nationals – Singapore sports kids get publicity

Singapore Sports Kids get burst in exposure:

The School Nationals is an exciting new sports programme that puts the local school sports scene on centre stage. It aims to get Singaporeans excited about school sports and the youths in sports.

In the Round-Up segment we showcase the National School Sports Championships across all three divisions (A, B and C), with coverage on all 26 sports. It will keep Singaporeans updated about the latest results of interschool championships and the achievements of school athletes.

The programme also aims to give school athletes greater exposure via the segment, Upstarts . This segment will feature a different young athlete each week. Viewers will get to find out more about these promising young athletes – learn about their passion for sports, how do they strike a balance between sports and academic work; and what do they aspire to achieve in sports.

Check out the Match-up segment to catch some fun and lighthearted sporting moments as we pit a top school athlete against a national athlete from the same sport.

Singapore Slingers WIN but snubbed by Mediacorp NEWS

Singapore Slingers Logo

Last night APLINK and some friendly bloggers and, pingsters were again treated to an evening with the Singapore Slingers… They won fantastically ! 119 to 102 over the Brisbane Bullets… a shock as reported by The
AGE in Australia (see Below) The early start time gave plenty of time to amble home from the stadium and catch the 930pm NEWS on Mediacorp’s channel 5, I sat there getting excited for the Slingers that their triumph would make the sporting news…BUT nothing was reported, not even a mention. On arrival at the game it is obvious the marketing is workin for the Slingers as the crowd numbers were up, sponsorship too looks like it is heading skyward seeing the sponsors logo’s and corporate boxes all full…so what does MediaCorp TV News need to have happen to realise that Basketball is making a place for itself in Singapore ?

Cellar-dwellers the Singapore Slingers have caused a major upset in the NBL, recording just their third victory of the season with a 119-102 triumph over defending champions Brisbane.

The Slingers came into the fixture riding a six-game losing streak that left them glued to the bottom of the ladder with a horrible 2-14 record.
