2nd Asian Rope Skipping Championships 2004, 7-8 Feb 2004

In 2004 secondary school aged sport rope skipping teams was unimaginable. I put together this first team of teenagers to be part of the first Singapore Rope Skipping Team go abroad to compete in another country. Our 20 rope skippers aged between 9 to 17 yrs won 26 medals including 13 gold medals in this debut competition.

The competition was the 2nd Asian Rope Skipping Championships in Bangkok in Thailand on 7th & 8th February 2004.

The medals won

The organisors did not have enough medals for all the winners so not everyone was awarded medals they won although all where given certificates. We where dissapointed that medals where not given in lieu of the competition.

In appreciation

When we arrived at the Thailand International Airport the competition organisors did not pick us up as planned. Mareesa's parents who are Thai met us at the airport and arranged for several vehicles to send us from the Airport to the official competition hotel at their expense. For this and other efforts to make the teams stay in Bangkok comfortable I must say a warm thank you to Mareesa and her parents.
