There are some negative criticisms saying that these girls are China-born Singaporeans, they play for Singapore for the $$ sign, so nothing to be proud of if they get a medal for Singapore, after 48 years of dry medal drought. A silver medal means S$750,000 for Singapore Table Tennis Women’s Team. What do you think? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment box.
