A boy from Nauru who won the world over
I MARVEL at the efforts of a boy named Dj Maaki
from the nation of Nauru, a Pacific nation slightly smaller than Pulau Tekong,
with a population of under 15,000. That's less than the number of volunteers
performing at the Youth Olympic Games closing ceremony.
This young boxer won a silver medal to do his country proud. Per capita, Nauru is the best performer at the Games.
On this basis, cheers to Singapore, who also did well given the size of its population. Congratulations to other larger nations which also did well per capita, such as Australia and Hungary. It has been an exhilarating journey.
