Singapore's Asian Games target

S'pore aiming for 11 gold medals at 2010 Asian Games@CNA

The 2001 Committee on Sporting Singapore blueprint set many targets - including becoming a Top 10 sporting nation in Asia by 2010.

The benchmark is the Asian Games.

In Doha 2006, Singapore finished in 12th spot - with 27 medals, eight of them gold.

For November's Asian Games in China, the target is 11 gold medals.

Low Teo Ping, Chef de Mission, Team Singapore, 2010 Asian Games, said: "We have already begun identifying 12 sports and we have classified them under what we call the M12, that will deliver the medals. We then would identify five, six, which we will call the G5 or G6, and these will be the five or six sports that will deliver the gold medals."
