This is the season for National Sports Competitions, and the Hwa Chong sports teams have certainly done the school proud with their impressive harvest of medals.

Braving tirelessly through many rounds of competition, the Hwa Chong canoeing ‘A’ Division boys successfully defended the Championship title for the 3rd year running, while the ‘A’ Division girls clinched 1st runner-up spot, the best showing in 10 years! Not trailing far behind and despite having a very young team, the Hwa Chong ‘B’ and ‘C’ Division Canoeing teams won the 2nd runner-up spot in the National Competition with sheer determination and hard work!

Cross Country
The Hwa Chong cross-country teams clinched top spots in the 2012 annual Cross-country event. The ‘A’ Division girls took home the Team Championship, with Neo Hoon Suan (11S68), claiming Individual Silver placing. The boys also shone when the ‘A’ and ‘C’ Division clinched 2nd and 3rd spots respectively in the Team Category, with Karthic Harish Ragupathy (12S6B) clinching the Individual Gold Medal.

Facing keen competition through many rounds of the competition, the Hwa Chong ‘A’ Division Fencing boys clinched the Championship title for the 1st time, and the ‘C’ Division team defended and retained their Championship title. Ip Yuan Chang (11S73) claimed the Individual Gold placing. The ‘B’ Division also boasted impressive achievements by clinching the 1st runner-up spot.

After a very close fight amongst the top schools, Hwa Chong’s shooters have done the school proud by winning the Championship titles in Pistol (‘C’ Division) and Air Rifle (‘B’ Division)! The ‘A’ Division Air Rifle boys clinched 1st runner-up, with Wesley Leong (11S6E) beating all competition to be crowned Individual Champion.

Table Tennis
Our Table Tennis girls, who were the defending Champions, emerged victorious and brought home the Championship title after many rounds of keenly-fought matches.

Track and Field
Our ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ Divisions Track and Field teams swept the competition away to be crowned triple champions, while our ‘A’ Division girls won 1st runner-up.

Hwa Chong’s Gymnasts clinched the Trampoline Individual Champion for ‘B Division! Equally impressive was the ‘C’ Division which fought valiantly and lost by a mere 0.1 point to take the 1st runner-up spot.

The Hwa Chong ‘C’ Division Wushu team put up an impressive performance at the Finals to clinch 1st runner-up.

Congratulations to all our Hwa Chong athletes, coaches and teachers-in-charge.  We wish our students all the best in their upcoming competitions. 自强不息!
