He said that they were treated just like any other person and that they didn’t receive any preferential treatment.

However, he added that they have worked hard and brought glory to Singapore, and that he’s sure “Singaporeans will be gracious, and remember the wonderful things these two young people have done, and give them our support and backing.”

K Shanmugam’s Facebook statement

[Schooling and Amanda]

These swimmers have worked hard, given much. They brought glory to Singapore.

Schooling in particular scaled heights which I never imagined: Olympic Gold and that too in swimming. I would never forget him lining up against legends – the finals had so many superstars. And he beat all of them.

Both Schooling and Amanda have been treated in the same way how others have been treated.

I am sure Singaporeans will be gracious, and remember the wonderful things these two young people have done. And give them our support and backing.
