Resolving NS-lite sports tensions through a paradox lens

In a commentary, SMU Assistant Professor of Strategic Management (Education) Kenneth Goh acknowledged and celebrated the success of Singapore's system for talent development. He also pointed out the need to continue addressing issues that could obstruct the talent pipeline, because talent diversity is critical for Singapore’s society to adapt to unexpected circumstances. He suggested that instead of viewing sports training and national service as naturally opposed, we should consider how each can complement the other with benefits for both. Assoc Prof Goh is a former national record holder in swimming and has represented Singapore at the SEA Games, Asian Games and World Championships.
