CHIAM’S OLYMPIC CHALLENGE

Opposition MP Chiam See Tong sparred with the Government on an untypical topic – getting a team ready for the next (1992) Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.

He challenged a reply from Minister of State (Community Development and Education) Dr Seet Ai Mee. She said Singapore would go through the “usual preparation”.

“The usual preparation is not good enough for me,” rebutted Mr Chiam.

Dr Seet parried his blow. She noted that Singapore was too small to produce many Olympic medallists.

“No excuse, No excuse!” shot back Mr Chiam.
