Team Singapore Brings Home 8 Medals from Para Asiad

The 4th Asian Para Games (APG) in Hangzhou, China, concluded on 28 October 2023 with Team Singapore’s para athletes bringing home eight (8) medals – three (3) gold, three (3) silver, two (2) bronze.

This is comparably Singapore’s best performance at the Asian Para Games yet. In the 3rd Asian Para Games held in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 2018, Singapore brought home ten (10) medals – three (3) gold, two (2) silver, five (5) bronze.

On the team’s performance, Chef de Mission and Vice President of the Singapore National Paralympic Council (SNPC), Ms Monique Heah said, “Medals are something that everyone looks forward to but we would also like to commend all our para athletes for overcoming the odds and coming this far. Their performance at this Asian Para Games is certainly not to be overlooked. We hope that more people will acknowledge the hard work that they and the team have put in and show interest in para sports. Only then, can we work towards a vibrant sporting community and more inclusive society.”

The Games were officially closed and handed over to Japan, who will be hosting the 5th APG from 18-24 October 2026 in Aichi-Nagoya.
