At the 1988 Summer Olympics, Siew and his teammate Joseph Chan capsized and were thrown into the rough water. They were injured and unable to right their damaged boat. Canadian sailor Lawrence Lemieux, competing in his Finn class heat, broke away and sailed to rescue them. Chan and Siew were rescued and transferred onto an official patrol boat.
