|Technical Official sharing their experiences
I started with Triathlon as a Body Marker Volunteer. I was tasked to stamp the numbers on the athletes’ arms and legs according to their bib number. Little did I know that doing such a small task is important and crucial because a technical official came to us and said that the inks need to be clear. I was intrigued and jumped upon the opportunity to become a TO. Now that I have completed Community Level 2, I have learnt that many aspects of the race might seem small but it all plays its own parts. I am also a strong believer of educating athletes, especially local and age groupers. We should not penalize them for every mistake they make but instead educate them. This way, they will not only learn, it will also not extinguish their interest and passion of triathlon, especially if they just picked it up.

I started joining Triathlon Association of Singapore as a Technical Official in 2010 after volunteering for Youth Olympic Games. Since then, I learned things from only knowing Triathlon as a sport where athletes does swim bike run at a time. Till today, I officiated in different roles for different races and different countries. I was given the chance under the Self-Fund Program. Through this scheme, I officiated twice in Cheng Du, China as well as Palembang in Indonesia. I learned to work with people from different culture and background. We shared knowledge and experience from one another. All these encouraged me to strive on as a TO.
Ong Si Ying
ITU National Technical Official
After attending the ITU Level 2 Technical Official Course in 2010, I gained in-depth knowledge on the technical operations of a triathlon event/course (Swim, Transition, Bike, Run and etc). This knowledge was invaluable in giving me a good understanding of the technical aspects to help ensure that triathlons can be a safe and fair sport for everyone. The exposure to overseas events served as a great platform to make friends and pick up best practices from triathlon enthusiasts from all over the world. Besides, it is also a great honor to be able to represent Singapore in a major sporting event. I definitely encourage more youths to take an interest in becoming a technical official.
