My last dive in the 1m event - I get goosebumps every time I watch this video because it was my hardest dive, and one that i had been struggling with for months. As crazy as it may sound, I vividly remember standing there thinking "I'm going to crush this dive" and couldn't be happier with what came after .
It reminds me that the only limit we have is the one that we set ourselves. Here's to breaking more boundaries and redefining those limits 🇸🇬
Miss the adrenaline. Miss the cheers from the crowd. Miss donning the stars and moon on my chest. Miss giving my all with no regrets. Patiently awaiting for the day where I can put on the red suit and fight for my country again. 🇸🇬 #seagames2017#tracknation#oneteamsg#teamsingapore

Thank you Dubai for the wonderful memories i have created there!!! 😁😁😁💪💪 (P.S last photo of me "webbing" up my sports chair! 😂😂) #asianyouthparagames2017#teamsingapore#oneteamsg#parabadminton
Today was a good day! We won 2 out of 2 games, both against Hong Kong to proceed to the semi-finals. This was what we needed after a difficult first two days losing to Pakistan, Malaysia and India respectively.
We will face Pakistan again tomorrow, the most physically dominant team. But after the last few days, we have come together as a team, finding consistency and playing stronger.
We are also putting in 4 quarters and playing a full game at our best, which means we are a better team going into the semis than we were in our opening game against Pakistan.
No matter what, we are ready to take on the giants. What place and which team we play on Sunday doesn't count yet, it's one step at a time. Day 4 @asianmennetball, Singapore is coming, but for now I need a good night's sleep.
A big thank you to Fitline for taking care of my body, not only as an athlete but as a person.
Over the past few months, I’ve teamed up with Fitline to try their products out.
Leading up to the competition, I took close to no greens but I had the Power Cocktail as a replacement and fell sick less often.
During this short period of being together with them, I’ve seen changes to being just feeling better. Can’t wait to see what will happen in the long run!
PS, I have perfect body proportions 🌚
joseph exercising 😝💦👍🏻 remember to stay fit and healthy everyone! #josephschooling
Congrats, Matthew @xmyzr ! You did it again!
Singapore teenager Matthew Yap broke two world records in the men’s Under-66kg sub-junior division (14-to 18-year-olds) at the Asian Classic Powerlifting Championships that were held in Alappuzha in Kerala state in India.
On Tuesday (Dec 5), the 18-year-old also became the new Asian champion as he smashed Swede Eddie Berglund’s four-year-old world record of 585kg by 3kg.
Yap’s deadlift of 237.5kg on Tuesday was not only enough to defeat the world champion and claim the Asian title, but the strongman also set a new overall world record of 588kg - 237.5kg deadlift, 215.5kg squat, 135kg benchpress - for his division. It was the second world mark at the competition for Yap, who also surpassed his previous squat record of 208kg set in Belarus.
