Althletes deserve reward


I agree with the suggestion by some contributers in this talk-shop that our gold medalist at the SP mini games should be specially recognise by the gov't. The courage and determination shown by them, and especially Betty for her age was brilliant and exceptional. Any form of special recognition for them by gov't will not only serve as an ecouragement for young people in our country to take up sports seriously but also increase our chances of winning more gold medals in the furure SP games and the likelihood of hosting the SP game. I can imagine their feelings standing among the best of the best, under our national colours and proudly singing our national Anthem. Congratulations for giving our country pride.
