8TH EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
1 April 2021 – 31 March 2023
Eddie has been in the skate industry for over 20 years and is filled with industry experience. His sense of purpose to grow rollersports in Singapore has always pushed him to come up with new ideas for more people to get in touch with the sport. In 1999, he opened Hvper Sport in a small skating store in East Coast Park and 20 years later in 2019, he opened Hi Roller Indoor Skating Rink. After only being in operation for two years, Hi Roller has already made a name for itself among the skating community and youths in Singapore. The purpose of the Rink's academy is also focused on the development of the sport where the space is also used as a training ground for athletes.
It has been 2 years since we last organized any National Championships due to the COVID-19 situation. Almost all activities have to come to a halt, including overseas events and competition. Our team has been planning for the last few months, a series of major events for 2021 and 2022, both locally and internationally.
This year is especially important as we are preparing our National Athletes for the up and coming “Asian Games” in Hangzhou, China 2022 consisting of Skateboarding, Inline Freestyle, and Speed Skating. Unfortunately, traveling overseas for training and competition will be quite unlikely to happen, therefore we can only focus on local training and competition for 2021, hopefully, all things will go back to normal by year-end and we can resume our overseas program soon.
I will be focusing on 3 main areas, namely National Championships and a series of events, developing new and young skaters through recruitment of potential skaters into the national squad and lastly, to find a permanent home and training facility for Singapore Rollersport Federation. Rollersport has recently become an Olympic federation under the International Olympic Committee and have included of rollersport events into the 2022 Asian Games.
It is my responsibility and honor to be able to have the opportunity to assist and lead our local athletes so they’ll compete in these prestigious events. After many years of development, I feel we are ready to take on the best in the world. The road ahead will be challenging and difficult and I hope all our young athletes can take up the challenge and bring honor to our nation. I wish everyone the best and keep enjoying our sport. Stay safe and stay cool. – Eddie, 2021
