Former SEA Games gold medallist swimmer court-martialled for going AWOL:

While doing NS, the swimmer successfully applied to be a member of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Sportsman Scheme. Under the scheme, elite national athletes are given time off from their NS duties to train and take part in competitions. According to sources, the Ministry of Defence found out that the swimmer had not attended physiotherapy and recovery sessions at the Singapore Sports Council last year. Nevertheless, the coach had marked him as "present" at these sessions. The swimmer was court-martialled, although the reasons for him going AWOL are unclear.
