We've never had a winter athlete and this in itself is a breakthrough." (straitstimes.com, 07 Jan 2011)

The management of the Kallang Ice World in Singapore insisted the athletes wore only skates rented at the rink instead of their professional skates which had a longer blade and raised safety concerns.
