In Support of:
A condolence letter to our President dated 25 March 2015 from Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan, President of IFMA:
It is with great sadness that we received the news of the passing of the great Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
We would like to extend our sincerest condolences to all our Singaporean brothers and sisters in Muaythai.
He was the father of the modern, vibrant and prosperous Singapore that we know today - an ambitious leader who refused to shirk away from tough decisions. We can only celebrate his legacy that will go far and beyond our time.
Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan
That the times when we had donned our nation's colours, draped in the red and white of our flag marching proudly into the arena or of the times when we had stood on the podium of champions, victorious, proud and heads turned upwards towards our rising flag as the strains of our anthem echo throughout the stadium or of the times we clasp our clenched fist to our hearts in recitation of our immortal pledge, all these done in lands both near and far, countries large and small.
But done with the indomitable spirit of the athlete who bears the flag of his nation, his people and his country and all these things that are good and true of heart made attainable only by the convictions of the one man who had the foresight, the courage and the very tenacity to forge a people into a nation proud and strong. Our heartfelt tribute to Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, the Father of our nation and a true giant amongst men.
Mr. Mervyn Tan
President, Amateur Muaythai Association (Singapore)
Secretary-General, Federation of Amateur Muaythai of Asia
