Following the meeting, Ellen Lee released the following statement.
“This has been an exciting election and I would like to thank my members for placing their trust and confidence in my abilities to assume the office of President. We thank Team 3H for their perspectives which show their commitment to Singapore table tennis sport.
It is my honour and privilege to be elected for the presidency position. I strongly believe that my newly elected management committee is a credible team which has a lot of passion for table tennis and strives to do nothing but the best for Singapore table tennis. I look forward to this opportunity to continue serving the sport and to continue to make table tennis one of the popular games in Singapore.
My newly elected team and I are committed to fulfil the STTA’s mission to support and develop world class table tennis players by identifying, nurturing and motivating aspiring table tennis talents to become the best that they could be. Nonetheless, more time is needed to narrow the gap left by our senior players but the gap has actually narrowed. We have seen promising results from our youths and these achievements serve as a testament that our youth development programmes are bearing fruit and we are on the right path of grooming our high potential talents into world-class athletes. We are excited about the opportunities ahead and we encourage supporters with the same passion to come forward to work with us.’’
