After 11 incredible days, the London 2012 Paralympic Games has official ended. Over ten days, the world watched, cheered and was transfixed at the marvels of the human spirit. Indeed London left an indelible mark that would inspire the next generation.
Team Singapore was represented by 8 athletes, who competed in four sports. The final medal tally for Singapore is 1 Silver and 1 Bronze. The two medals were both won by Laurentia Tan for equestrian.
Team Singapore’s final performance in the other sports:
Nurulasyiqah took part in her first Paralympics and did her best and was ranked 7th overall in the Individual Mixed BC3 category.
Our pair of sailors, Jovin and Desiree finished 7th with an overall score of 74 points.
In swimming, Yip Pin Xiu finished in 4th when she swam in the Women’s 50m freestyle S3 event.
We can be proud of all our athlete’s achievements in the long journey towards the London Paralympics, overcoming the odds along their way and showing all of us what is possible.
We would like to thank everyone for all your support and hope you will continue to support The Singapore National Paralympic Council and all its athletes in future to train and to compete.
As the curtain comes down in London, preparations are already afoot to welcome the world to the next Paralympic Games in 4 years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
