As they always say... keep your head in the clouds, and your feet on the ground. Never tell your kid what they are NOT capable of doing. Tell them they can be anything they want, as long as they want it badly enough.

Mine was into swimming, but now into fencing. He's quite good at both too, but I have no delusions about what he can be. My point to him is as long as he enjoys and do his best in all that he tries, I'm ok and will support his interests. No need to be the best - as long as he has given his best, it's good enough for me.

But what are the chances of becoming the next Fandi Ahmad....quite a long shot...but still, if my child is clearly passionate about it, I would say follow their heart.

Life is not about making the most money, and be the smartest person on earth. Like M1 says, 1 life, live it.

There is actually a Singapore Sports School. But really, finally it boils down to bread and butter. There is a very short life span as a sports man for a career in Singapore.

SSS...is near my home. Driving back, can see the swimming pool bright bright. In fact, my girl goes there for swimming with her school.

i guess a lot of sports men/women end up going into coaching or sports managment. or maybe even sports nutrition or your friendly school PE teacher. :)
