Ring of stars and crescent : 70 years of the Olympic Movement in Singapour / Peh Shing Huei

Peh, Shing Huei

Edited by Singapore National Olympic Council. Singapore - 2017

This book pieces back the foundations of Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC), retraces its stories and rediscovers its personalities. More than just an account of the athletes who did Singapore proud, this book tells the behind-the-scene stories of officials who had painstakingly kept SNOC going, and thriving, for seven decades. It not only recalls the famous achievements of Tan Howe Liang, Feng Tianwei and Joseph Schooling, but also shares the lesser-known exploits of G. G. Thomson, E. W. Barker and Ng Ser Miang. It is the story of Singapore and its 70-year adventure with the Olympic Movement.
