Tianwei to lead at SEA Games

Singapore’s women's head coach Jing Junhong said: "The SEA Games is in our country this year and we will send a strong team, for sure.

"We haven't tied down who will be competing in which events, but Tianwei will be in the team for sure, provided she is free from injury," added the former national player, who won the coach of the year accolade last night.

Feng, 28, picked up the national sports association's Player of the Year award at last night’s Keppel-Singapore Table Tennis Association annual awards dinner for the fifth time after clinching three titles – Japan Open, Australia Open and Philippines Open – in the International Table Tennis Federation World Tour last year.

She said: "I was pretty satisfied with my performance last year; there were years where I didn't win a single title on Tour and last year I won three."
