Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ang Peng Siong is a swimmer from Singapore, who once held the world no.1 ranking in the 50 m freestyle. Ang was taught to swim at the age of five by his father Ang Teck Bee, who competed in judo at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. He studied at Anderson Secondary School and Anglo-Chinese School. Ang first represented Singapore at the 1977 Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, where he was a silver medalist in the 4 x 100 m freestyle relay. His first major international competition was the Hawaii International Invitational Swimming Championship, an event which included many top swimmers from countries that boycotted the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow. During the meet, Ang delighted the swimming fraternity by being the only non-American swimmer to qualify for the 50m freestyle final. As a result of his performance in Hawaii, Ang received a full athletic scholarship from the University of Houston in the United States.show more
