I don’t have a lot to write about this weekend as I will be reserving my strength for the Dr. Wealth Blog.
What’s trending now is are the merciless attacks from keyboard warriors on Joseph Schooling for losing the chance to defend his Butterfly Gold in the Tokyo Olympics and the many folks who jumped to his defence. A couple of famous folks have even commented that “victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan”.
I’m not here to motivate Joseph Schooling to keep trying for us, that’s really up to him. It’s not like our government gave him a lot of support before he won gold for the country. Sports is not something we’d like to emphasize as a society as compared to, say, private banking.
Instead, my belief that is that Singapore, in general, does not deserve a sports champion like him. Singapore is too caught up with navel-gazing and envy to sincerely celebrate Joseph Schooling
