Singapore may not have a team or an athlete at the Sochi Winter Olympics, but the Republic has played a role at the Games.

Singapore-listed Hong Leong Asia, through its China subsidiary, China Yuchai International (CYI), has supplied engines that were used in the building of infrastructure for the global sporting event.

CYI subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (GYMCL) supplied diesel engines - manufactured in China - for the Pavers and Loaders that paved roads in the construction of the Russian port city's Olympic stadiums.

And heavy-duty trucks propelled by the same engines provided the necessary transportation for the movement of goods and materials.
