Team Singapore Ropes
at National Day Parade 2006
conference held by
Sport Council at Kallang Stadium on 2 Aug 2006
Only half the team of 40 skippers where needed for the media conference
demonstration. Here they are on the steps of Kallang MRT ready to walk
over to Kallang Stadium.
Waiting in the shade for the media and camerman
to come out from the press conference.
We suggested to the organisers that the photos should be taken from
this side instead of the planned other side.
This great action Strait Times newspaper photo the next day with the
stadium in the
back is the result of our suggestion.
We happen to have the youngest performer in the whole NDP, - 9 years
old. Here you see the reporters taking turns to interview her. The
media treated her like a celebrity.
Our gracious rope skippers cheering (well, shouting actually) other
groups on as they performed for the media.
The youngest NDP performer making a television interview that appeared
on several news channels that evening and the next day. Perhaps this is
the first time a rope skipper goes on television to talk about rope
skipping. Another rope skipper from the team was interviewed on 93.8

While 20 rope skippers performed an exciting show on the stage for 9
minutes the other 20 rope skippers perform Double Dutch rope skipping
on the ground to create a festival mood. We did five shows while NDP
spectators where entering the stadium to watch the main parade.
Tah - ta-aah!
