I am thankful for the privilege to serve the SNOC : Grace Fu Elected as President of SNOC


Ms Grace Fu (59) was elected unopposed as the President of the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) at an Extraordinary General Meeting (EOGM) held at the Singapore Sports Hub. With this appointment, Ms Fu will take over from Acting President Mrs Jessie Phua, who will resume her duties as Vice-President.

Ms Fu, a Member of Parliament and the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment, has a strong background in overseeing the nation’s sports agenda. She previously served as the Minister for Culture, Community and Youth from 2015 to 2020, during which she was appointed to oversee Singapore’s sport agenda.

As President of the SNOC, Ms Fu aims to work closely with National Sports Associations (NSAs) and other stakeholders to further develop Singapore sport and support athletes in reaching greater heights. She expressed her gratitude for the privilege to serve the SNOC and the Olympic Movement and her hope to create more opportunities for athletes to represent Singapore in major Games.

“I am thankful for the privilege to serve the SNOC and the Olympic Movement. I hope we can continue to work together with our NSAs and stakeholders to realise the potential of our athletes to bring Singapore sport to greater heights and continue to create opportunities for our athletes to represent Singapore at the major Games. I would like to extend my appreciation to my fellow Executive Committee members and our National Sports Association affiliates for their support, and to Mrs Jessie Phua for her contribution as Acting President,” said Ms Fu.

Ms Fu has been a member of the SNOC Executive Committee since October 2023 and will hold the position of President until 2026. She extended her appreciation to her fellow Executive Committee members, the SNOC affiliates, and Mrs Jessie Phua for their support and contributions.

The EOGM saw the attendance of 141 delegates representing 42 Ordinary members, 2 Associate members, and 5 Provisional members, reaffirming the commitment and support for the SNOC’s mission.

With Ms Grace Fu as President, the SNOC can look forward to continued progress and success in Singapore’s sporting endeavors.

The post of SNOC president was vacated in July last year after former president Tan Chuan-Jin resigned due to his extramarital affair with Member of Parliament Cheng Li Hui. Jessie Phua, the most senior vice president, was appointed as the acting president according to SNOC’s constitution. Tan was supposed to serve until 2026, but the position was now filled by Fu Qiongfang. The SNOC coordinates the selection of Singapore athletes for major Games such as the Olympics, Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, and Southeast Asian Games.
