The 9th Asean Schools Games (ASG) spanned 5 days of sporting competition from July 15-19, where 1650 student-athletes from 10 ASEAN member nations competed against one another. It drew to a close on July 20 as Singapore handed over the Games' hosting rights to Malaysia during the closing ceremony held at Universal Studios Singapore.

Hwa Chongian’s Tenacity Pays Off
We would like to congratulate the following athletes on setting new records at the Games:
Wang Tingjia, who came in second and set a new schools’ national record with a javelin throw of 59.76 m.
Sia Jun Wei who came in second for the 5000 m walk and set a new schools’ national record of 22:44:48.
Wu Xinyao (17S74) who broke the 3000m Walk Schools National Records during April’s National Inter-Schools’ Track and Field Championships. She has subsequently improved on that record during the recent ASEAN Schools Games, where she, amid the gruelling competition, emerged as one of the two gold medalists for the Singapore team in Athletics.
在7月18日举行的第九届亚细安学生运动会（ASEAN Schools Games）上，我校田径好手吴欣瑶(17S74)打破自身创下的纪录，以15分16秒稳坐女子甲组3000米竞走的冠军宝座。她也曾在较早的全国校际女子甲组3000米竞走决赛中打破往年的纪录，以15分59秒的佳绩夺冠，而在此次国际赛中，她更是发挥出色，缔造新纪录。
