Hi everyone

I am thankful for the concern everyone has shown me. I am sorry if I caused any of you to worry.

Whatever happened this week happened so suddenly that even I needed time to adjust – which is why I have stayed silent for the past few days and have not responded to the many allegations. Thanks for patiently waiting for my response.

It has been 10 years since I started representing Singapore in table tennis in the year 2007. I have made several achievements during this time. I became a world champion. I won a few Olympic medals. I have fulfilled a childhood dream of mine by standing on the world’s largest award podium.

I made Singapore’s flag to fly high in the international sporting arena and made the national anthem be heard around the world. I I would not have been able to make all these achievements without the help of the Singapore government, sports committee members, Olympic committee, the Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA), and strong support from many quarters. I wish to express my sincerest appreciation to everyone.

I also want to thank my fans and everyone else who have supported me. Because you have been with me in this tough journey, you have motivated me to press on and not feel like I am all alone.

The Singapore government by giving me citizenship, has given me many opportunities to represent the country and compete internationally. I have always wanted a career in table tennis and have fought hard for it, so I will not give it up easily.  I will continue to play, to represent Singapore and fight in the international stage. I hope I can contribute to the improvement of Singapore’s table tennis. This will only prove that the Singapore government’s support for local sports will have guaranteed return on investments.

I will continue to live in Singapore even though I am not in the national team. I am still a Sports Excellence Scholar and am in negotiations with several organisations about competing in the sport. STTA has also said that it would support me if I compete internationally. I will continue to push forward and not give up. I want to continue to represent Singapore by competing.

I regret not being able to bring back any medals from the recent Olympic games. I only recognised that I have a lot of room for improvements through this experience. My plans are to put together a team, hire different professional coaches and return to the competitive field in a renewed way. I hope this will give me more opportunities for me to grow as a player. By training and competing harder, I want to improve myself by playing against and sharing experiences with the world’s best players.

I hope to have the opportunities to participate in international competitions in an open and fair manner. I wish to bring back more Olympic medals for Singapore and to get the fourth Olympic medal of my sporting career.

Some newspapers have character assassinated me in the past few days and attacked me personally. This is all very ugly and I am shocked that such rumours have surfaced. In the period that I was contracted to STTA, I have never cheated anyone of money or acted in a manner which is unlawful. I have consulted a lawyer on such false claims. I hope that there will not be any more of such false reports.

Finally, thanks to everyone and especially my friends in the media for your support and for respecting my privacy. I am a Singapore citizen. It is my honour to bring more strength and glory to Singapore. Please continue your support of me!

I would like to contribute and continue to represent Singapore. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much for your support. Thank you everyone!

今天,我和媒体联系,分享我日后的乒乓球训练计划,具体内容如下:

大家好。非常感谢大家对我的关注,让大家担心了,非常抱歉。这次的事件发生比较突然,我自己也需要些时间来调整,所以这几天一直没有发表任何言论,感谢你们的耐心等待。

自从我2007年开始代表新加坡队参赛以来,已经过去快十年了,期间取得了一些成就,成为世界冠军、获得奥运奖牌,站上了世界最高的领奖台,既圆了我儿时的梦想,还让新加坡国旗在国际赛场上高高飘扬,让新加坡国歌在国际赛场上声声奏响。这些成就的取得离不开新加坡政府,体育理事会、奥委会、乒总及各方的鼎力支持,在此,向他们表示最真挚的谢意。同时,我也想感谢一下球迷和支持我的人们,感谢你们一路风雨兼程的陪伴,让我在前行的路上充满动力,从未孤单。

新加坡政府给了我机会,让我成为新加坡公民,并代表新加坡参加国际比赛,乒乓球事业也是我多年奋斗的目标,我不会轻易放弃,我会继续打球、继续代表新加坡出征、继续拼搏在国际赛场上,我希望而且有能力让新加坡乒乓球事业发展的更好。向所有人证明新加坡政府对体育事业的支持一定是有回报的!

虽然不在乒总的团队了,但我还是会留在新加坡,仍旧是卓越体育奖学金得主,也正在跟各机构商讨继续参加比赛的事宜,乒总方面也表明会支持我参加国际比赛,所以我不会放松对自己的要求,要继续代表新加坡出赛。虽然在刚刚结束的奥运会上,很遗憾的与奖牌失之交臂,但是通过比赛让我认识到了自己还有很大的提升空间。接下来我会积极组建团队,聘请教练、陪练、和体能师,以一种新的方式出现在赛场上,也许会带来更多的发展空间。我要更加努力的训练和比赛,通过与世界顶尖高手的交流和较量,提升自己的能力。我也希望和期盼能有一个公平公开公正的竞争参加世界大赛及公开赛的机会,更希望能参加2020年奥运会,为新加坡拿到更多的奥运奖牌,拿到我职业生涯第四块奥运奖牌。

这两天一些报纸的不实报道对我人格人品进行了攻击,产生了非常恶劣的影响。我很震惊这些言论的出现。与乒总的合约期间,我没有欺骗任何钱财、和作出违背法律的事件。我已就这些不实之词咨询律师,希望今后不要再出现类似不实的报道。

最后,感谢大家和媒体朋友们给予我的空间和支持,我是新加坡的公民,能继续为新加坡的荣誉贡献力量是我的荣耀,请继续支持我,为我加油!I would like to contribute and continue to represent Singapore. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much for your support.

谢谢大家!
