Singapore Sports School Student Died today, Badminton Academy 14 year old was feeling unwell

The Singapore Sports School (SSP) badminton academy has reported that a male student from Secondary 2 who was participating in the academy passed away on Wednesday.

SSP stated, in response to questions posed by The Straits Times, that the Singaporean child, aged 14, had reported feeling ill after finishing a 400m fitness time trial on October 5 and had subsequently been transported to the hospital, where he later passed away.

SSP has stated that it will conduct an investigation into the event, thoroughly assess its safety measures, and keep parents informed of any developments. In addition, as investigations are still taking place, it is unable to disclose any other facts at this time.

According to information provided to ST by the Singapore Civil Defence Force, the organization responded to a request for help made at SSP at approximately 6.50 p.m. on Thursday and transported a patient to the National University Hospital.

Heartfelt condolences from the school and sports community

On Wednesday, SSP modified its Facebook profile by adding a cover photo that was entirely black and a school emblem that was only in black and white.

“He was a role model student-athlete who excelled in badminton and had exemplary character,” said Principal Ong Kim Soon. “He was a student-athlete who was a role model.”

“He was cheery and nice, and he kept an upbeat attitude towards his training and studies the entire time.

“He was a talented young athlete who had already won several national age-group contests and had a bright future ahead of him. In addition to that, he was well-liked by his classmates, instructors, and coaches.

The institution continued by saying, “The SSP extends our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.” The family of the student-athlete has been receiving help from the institution, and this assistance will continue to be provided.

The school’s commitment to safety and investigation

During this challenging time, the school counsellors and other members of our staff have been providing support to the affected student-athletes, coaches, and staff members.

“The continued health and safety of our student-athletes is, and will continue to be, our top priority. We ask for the understanding of the public so that we can respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.

The chief executive officer of the Singapore Badminton Association (SBA), Mr. Alan Ow, stated that he had communicated with the student’s family.

Mr. Ow, who had previously stated that the youngster was a member of the SBA’s national intermediate squad, continued by saying, “We are lending the family support, and we should give them room to get over this episode.”

SSP has been a well-liked option for student-athletes in Singapore ever since it began accepting new students in the year 2004.

The academic curriculum at SSP, in contrast to that of traditional schools, is arranged to accommodate a student’s sports practice and competition schedule.
