A heartening message from Singapore
February 2, 2012 Leave a comment
This is Nigel Eng from Singapore! I was searching the web for the latest European champs info when i stumbled upon your blog! Very passionate and insightful details on the topics you discuss. I don’t know if you remember me, but I was quite active when you were coaching the Men’s team back in 2000 . Tom Hoad still comes down to help out occasionally and i’ve been asking about you through the years. I heard you had a health scare, and hope all is well now.
I did pursue aviation and am now a pilot on the A380. I have been blessed with 3 boys ( 4 yrs and twins are 2.5 yrs old ). The values of perserverance and hard work has never left the group of us who were under your tutelage.
I hope to stay in touch and meet up when i head your way or vice-versa.
P.s i used to fly to moscow and stayed next to the olimpiskaya stadium. I wandered in one day and saw a poster of the USSR 1980 Olympic Team, with a subset pic of my former coach guarding an attacker!
