PHNOM PENH: Despite the weight of history, Singapore floorballer Michelle Lok’s focus during her team’s final with Thailand was simple. The present rather than the past.
“It didn’t go through my head that we had to continue being champions,” said Lok, who was also part of the 2019 team which won gold. “Really just focus on the present and just deliver.”
And deliver they did, as the women’s floorball team continued their dominance at the SEA Games after beating Thailand 4-2 on Tuesday (May 16).
At Dinosaur Park Hall in Phnom Penh, Singapore rebounded from a 1-3 group stage loss to the Thais the day before to take the gold.
Singapore finished second in the group stage after three wins and a solitary loss against Thailand. The top two sides – Singapore and Thailand advanced to the final.
