More companies have joined a programme to provide career opportunities to Team Singapore athletes. 

The companies are Amore Fitness, Borneo Motors, DBS Bank, Deloitte Singapore, DHL Supply Chain and Sakae Holdings. 

The Sports Excellence Career Scheme, launched by Sport Singapore last April, will now have 13 companies on board. 

21 Team Singapore athletes have benefitted from the scheme so far. 

These come in the form of internships, apprenticeships, job placements and flexible workplace practices for them. 

Minister of State for Trade and Industry Teo Ser Luck, who chairs the High Performance Sports Selection and Performance sub-committee, says there will be more outreach efforts to bring additional companies on board.
