BY LIM CHING YING
The Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA) now has a million-dollar fund to encourage local-born talent to play the sport at the Olympic level without worrying about paying for their tertiary education.
 
This became possible with a donation from an Indonesian businessman and philanthropist, Dr Tahir, who goes by a single name. The 63-year-old's contribution is the largest donation to the STTA by an individual.
 
The chairman and chief executive officer of the Mayapada Group was president of the Indonesian Table Tennis Association until last year.
 
"I believe that sport and education go together," he said, adding that many Indonesians take part in activities in Singapore, and that sport has the potential to unite a country.

Indonesian businessman Tahir or Dato Sri Tahir has an estimated net worth of $2 billion. He is #736 in The Forbes Billionaires List, #7 in Indonesia and #13 in Indonesia’s 40 Richest List as of March 2013. He was born on March 26, 1952 in Surabaya, Indonesia to a father who had a business making pedicabs and a mother who owned a fabric shop. He needed to quit medical school in Taiwan because of his father’s illness. He later studied business in Nanyang University in Singapore, Nanyang Technological University’s predecessor.

 

Tahir then returned to Indonesia after graduation. In 1986, he founded the Mayapada Group, an Indonesian-based conglomerate. He started his empire with a garment and textile manufacturing business. Four years later, he started Bank Mayapada, one of nation’s largest privately held banks these days. Majority of his wealth comes from his bank and real estate holdings. He now owns several buildings in Jakarta, hotels in Bali and Batam, and a new tower in Singapore. He is also a co-investor in the license that publishes Forbes Indonesia.

Tahir is known for his charitable works. He has donated more than $50 million to universities in China, Indonesia, United States, and Singapore where he is a permanent resident. In April 2011, he donated $1 million to the University of California, Berkeley for international student fellowships for students in the fulltime MBA program at Berkeley-Haas. It was one of his duties as a member of the university’s board of trustees. He has also spent a fair amount as president of the Indonesian Table Tennis Association to help send Indonesians to Beijing for coaching and training. Her wife is also into charity. Rosy, the daughter of another Indonesian tycoon, Mochtar Riady, recently started h2h Charity. She also has a vintage shop in Jakarta wherein the proceeds are donated to help provide schooling for underprivileged children in Indonesia.

Singapore companies all under temasek lah. They helping us to earn more money, so where got money to invest in local sport. Local sport cannot earn returns of 4% lah :D

Anyway, still think there are local companies that are willingly to invest. Thought Peter Lim invested $3mil into school? Also, did see local companies like OCBC and CDL investing in local arts :)

Then how? Who here can sponsor ? Talk is cheap.

 

However, it's also know that our SSC only support those "sports" and "talents" they think got future one. Those athletes they see no up one, can never get any support but still win medals. Recently you can see they try very hard to improve on this, they changed their name.

Table tennis in oylimpic is essentially a china team A,B,c,d by the time it reach semi final. Every nation have at least a Chinese if not all Chinese inside.
