On 26th May 2017, the Hwa Chong Basketball Boys’ Team emerged as First Runners-Up in the National School Games. To find out more about the Team, and their months-long journey leading up to the conclusion of the Finals, the Students’ Council set out to interview the Team Captain, Brandon Wu.
- What did you feel was the best lesson that you have learnt throughout this journey?
We learnt to trust each other throughout this journey. For a basketball team to be successful, there have to be trust among the players and coaches.
- At the same time, were there any challenges you’ve faced? And how did you and your team overcome them?
One of the challenges we faced were injuries during the season. Due to the tough training and competition intensity, many of us got injured or aggravated our existing injuries.
We did rehab and physio and took care of our bodies throughout the season to minimise the injuries
- Do you have any advice for your juniors?
Keep on fighting hard and continue to trust the process.
