Remy Ong, National Bowling Captain, became Singapore 's only second male multiple-gold medallist in the Asian Games' 51-year history when he won golds for the Singles, Trios and Masters events and also topped the All-Events at the 14th Asian Games in Busan ( South Korea ). Not only did he excel in his performance he also set an example of what focus and discipline in sports means.

The southpaw's uncle had introduced him to bowling when he was only 10 years old. Although he had tried other sports such as badminton, soccer and swimming, bowling was (and still is) his first love. Remy became a full-fledged national bowler at 16 years of age and won his first perfect game at the ATBC Championships in 1998. From then on he continued to compete and excel in many other tournaments including titles from the President's Cup in Indonesia in February followed by the Super Classic in March in 2002.

Remy came very close to being crowned the World Champion at the 38th AMF World Cup where he was pitted against a field of 83 men to advance to the final. He was the second Singaporean bowler to perform so well at this prestigious amateur bowling tournament which saw a congregation of many world champions.

Remy was ranked Asia 's Number 1 bowler by both the Asian Bowling Federation and the CGU Asian Bowling Tour, in 2002.
