Feng Tianwei targets clean sweep in TT

Feng Tianwei has confirmed her attendance for 2010 Commonwealth Games to be held in Delhi in Oct this year.

The 23-year-old, who helped Singapore win their first Olympic medal in nearly 50 years when she claimed a silver in the team event in Beijing in 2008, is targeting a clean sweep in India.

"I am nervous, a bit scared but I want to win the Gold medals," an excitable Feng told in her first interview in English before an exhibition match at a primary school in the city state on Tuesday.

Athlete safety has been a huge concern and talking point for the New Delhi Games, which will be held between Oct. 3-14.

India has been on alert since terror attacks in Mumbai in late 2008 and several sports teams have refused to travel to the country since, citing security concerns.

The Chinese-born paddler, however, is focusing on the task of emulating the efforts of her country's predecessors who won four gold medals on offer to the women at the 2006 Games in Melbourne.

"Yes there is extra pressure (because of the 2006 success)," Feng said. "But we can do it in singles, doubles, mixed and team, four gold medals."
