Pathetic way of treating this man...

In my books, Mr Tan is the only Singaporean who is an Olympic medallist. Our China Team B imports do not count. Why I am feeling sad for Mr Tan is because:

a) He is a museum exhibit in a museum that is hardly visited
b) He is only remembered once in 4 years
c) He is a living national hero but nobody else gives a damn.

I know that he didn't cry on television the day Singapore was ejaculated out of Malaysia but his feat in Rome was a milestone. And for all his quite reservation, I feel more could be done for him.
