Singapore team for Winter Olypmics

Congratulations, what a fantasic idea of Singapore's Sport Council!

The tropical island follows suit some other exotic wannabe wintersport countries that have never ever seen snow. Uber-rich Singapore obviously has too much money to waste and too much time to even think about such a ridiculous idea.

If they realize this idea another avenue for "foreign talent" has to be opened, this time at least not from China because they themselves are still considered a developing country in skiing or snowboarding.
At least the "perfect" training facility already exists: The Snow City!
Good luck Singapore!
