DPMM FC in the finals

A great result for DPMM FC in the StarHub League Cup

They have done it again… Reaching the finals of the Singapore League Cup which is now known as StarHub League Cup. A few days ago, Tales Dos Santos scored a late equaliser against Home United FC and force the game to penalty shoot-out as the full time finished 1-1. Wardun became the hero pulling two saves and Shahrazen scored the winning goal in the quarter-final match on the StarHub League Cup.

Tonight they beat another top 5 opponent in the S•League which is Singapore Armed Forces FC and it was a comfortable scoreline of 2-0. Santos is in fine scoring form scoring the opener, his third goal in four games, and DPMM FC sealed their fate to the finals with a debut goal for Adi Said in DPMM FC’s colours.

It was a sweet revenge for DPMM FC as the Wasp had earlier lost to SAF FC in the early stages of the competition with the same scoreline. Now they will wait to see who they will face in the finals between Geylang United FC and Tampines Rovers which will be played tomorrow evening.

Regardless who they face in the finals, let’s hope for DPMM FC to bring back the trophy for the fans. The finals will be played on the 11th August.

Adi Said, who was voted player of the tournament in Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy, finally scored his first goal in DPMM FC’s colours

The updates from the Olympics

Now all eyes on Jamaican Usain Bolt on track and field. He has won gold and also broke the Olympic record in the 100m. Now he will be ready for his 200m. Photo by Mark Blinch/REUTERS.

This runner has given much inspiration to athletes and fans worldwide. He retained his 100m crown last Sunday though he had a slow start coming off the blocks. His closest rivals Jamaica’s Yohan Blake finished second with 9.75 seconds while America’s Justin Gatlin settled for 3rd with a 9.79 seconds and it was pretty amazing to see all top 3 finishers did it under 10 seconds. Usain is indeed a lightning bolt…

Gold medallist Michael Phelps. Is he the greatest olympic athelete of all time?? He won his 22nd olympic medal and 18th of them are gold in the span of 9 years. Image by Al Bello/Getty Images.

He declared he won’t be competing in the Rio De JAaneiro in 2016. Anyway, he doesn’t need to. He has proven in the pool how great of an athlete he is and Michael Phelps will be remembered in many olympics to come. His best achievement was perhaps in Beijing 2008 where he captured 8 golds in all competitions he entered. This year, he earned four golds and two silvers. Awesome!!!

Chong Wei lost the finals to Lin Dan who won his 2nd consecutive gold in badminton’s singles last Sunday.

All of us were behind Chong Wei’s quest for gold but it wasn’t to be. It’s another four year wait!!

So close yet so far.. Twice Chong Wei reached the finals of the men’s singles but he couldn’t topple his great rival Lin Dan of China. Of course, I was supporting Lee Chong Wei as I wanted him to win gold for his country. Lin Dan played superbly despite losing the first set. I was watching the finals with my buddies’ place and most of us were at the edge of our seats. Chong Wei hinted that he will aim for 2016 should he still be fit for the games. He will be 33 then. Well done to both Lin Dan and Chong Wei for delivering such an entertaining finale.

What a match between Canada and USA in the semi-finals of the Women’s football match. Canada’s goalkeeper looked at the ball as they conceded a last minute goal from USA. Canada felt robbed of the match. Image by David Moir/REUTERS.

I wasn’t interested in watching men’s football as much as the women. Surprisingly their matches are pretty entertaining too and the games were quite opened as well. I watched the semi-finals match last night and I really thought Canada would have pulled an upset over the Americans and it would be a great achievement too for Canada to reach the finals. Morgan of USA scored a crunching blow to Canada’s hope of a silver or gold. The game ended 4-3 in favour of the Americans.

It’s about time!!! Andy Murray of Great Britain always fail to win a Grand slam title despite reaching the finals. It was different this time round when he beat Roger Federer in straight sets to win gold for Great Britain. Awesome!!!

Yes, yes.. I’m a Roger fan and I was hoping him to win his first Olympic gold too. I was quite surprised that Andy Murray totally dominated the finals and he also earned silver medal in the mixed doubles. Serena Williams did a double on gold as she won in the women’s singles and doubles while the Bryans won the gold in men’s doubles. Image by Dominic Ebenbichler/REUTERS.

I saw him on TV and he is such an inspirational athlete. “Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius competed in the 400m and it was one of the highlights of the Olympics. Image by Lucy Nicholson/REUTERS.

He became the first double-amputee to reach the semi-finals of the 400m but failed to reach the finals as he finished 23 out of 24 places. He will be competing in the 4 x 400 relay this Thursday in the heats. Let’s hope the best for him and you guys should watch him on TV.

Best time to be in London?? An eatery by the Royal Festival Hall in central london suffered loss of business especially during the Olympics. Image by Sang Tan/Associated Press.

Now ain’t that weird?? The Games supposed to bring in $$$ to the economy but it wasn’t to be the case in London. The east end was reported to be quite busy but it wasn’t for the west end which is Lond’s main shopping and entertaining district. Some said it was the worst two weeks ever for their business. The fingers were pointing at Boris Johnson the London Mayer for encouraging everybody not to come as it might affect the congestion in London. The message definitely got through but too well that it backfired in terms of spurring more income.
