TAS holds a Level 1 Seminar for Technical Officials

TAS held the ITU Technical Officials Level 1 Seminar on 28-29 April 2018 at the Singapore Sports Hub. ITU Facilitators Daniel Sng and Omar Bakar, led by David Hoong, ensured the participants are kept up-to-date with the latest progress in Triathlon which included ITU rules changes.

2 NTOs and 5 CL2-TOs attended this 2 full-day seminar by invitation upon fulfilling their selection criteria, to certify or re-validate themselves as National Technical Official (NTO). “The level of enthusiasms and involvements of the participants gave us the opportunity to out-perform ourselves as Facilitators and got us involved in their role-plays and group presentations,” said David.

Participants were seen “participatively-fun” over the 2 days and were looking forward to completing their post race assignments to fulfil the requirements of the seminar. “We are encouraging our seminars to be more involved with interactions allowing the feel of real-life officiating scenarios leaving the detailed slides reading at home,” added Peter Chua, Chair of TAS Technical Committee.

At the end of the course, participants were briefed on the post-seminar requirements motivating everyone on the Self-Funding Technical Officials (SFTO) programme. TAS sees more than 20 SFTO applications this year.

A pre-NTO level course, the TAS Technical Official’s Community Level 2 will be held in July 2018. Participants from our current pool of CL1-TOs, Physical Education teachers, athletes, parents, coaches and event organisers will be filling up this class.

Singapore, 12 September 2017: It is with deepest sadness that St. James’s Place Wealth Management Asia can confirm that Steve Begley, an Associate Partner with the company since 2015, tragically passed away on Sunday morning after experiencing cardiorespiratory failure when participating in the swim leg of the Singapore International Triathlon.

We are deeply saddened by this loss and the thoughts of everyone at St. James’s Place are with Steve’s family. Steve was a larger than life personality whose positive outlook was much admired by all of his colleagues.

We are currently unable to comment further and we ask that the privacy of his family is respected during this difficult time.

Singapore International Triathlon 2017 – National Championships


Singapore International Triathlon 2017
National Championships

Sunday, 10 Sep
East Coast Park Area E2, Angsana Green
Men Start – 7.10AM, Women Start – 7.30AM

This year’s Singapore International Triathlon 2017 will see Singapore’s top triathletes competing against one another in the National Championships category. Every triathlete will be racing hard to be crowned national champions, with ITU points given to the top 5 triathletes.  With this being a sprint distance race instead of the olympic standard distance, it is going to be a very exciting Sunday with the juniors pitting against the seniors in the familiar settings of East Coast Park, you will see the battle between the bests!

While Christy Suriadi, Bryce Chong and Nicholas Rachmadi have already been selected for the XXI Commonwealth Games, this National Championships will need to find 3 more triathletes for TAS nominations to SNOC to fill up the remaining 1 men and 2 women slots. Look out for bronze medallist Clement Chow and Wille Loo who finished a close 4th behind Clement in the recent SEA Games, also not forgetting Zac Low, a confirmed contender in the 2018 Asian Games. These 3 will be putting up their best for this 1 slot. Winona Howe’s withdrawal from this race due to an unfortunate injury has kept the options open with Phoebe Kee and Ethel Lin amongst the favourites now fighting for the 2 women nomination spots.

Will we see the favourites dominating again this Sunday or will we see surprises? With elite starts comprising of 13 men and 5 women, this category will be the highlights of Sunday morning.
