Good luck to all those playing in the tournament. I hope you also have a little time to enjoy some of the food + sights of Singapore.

Btw I had a look at Aiden's Give a little page (https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/supportaidenzhao) and see he's managed to crowdsource $7.2k of funding. I wonder if this could be a way to fundraise for future Chess Olympiad. Obviously he or his parents are keeping ppl updated and thanking donors. Anyway this discussion for another time.
