Tokyo Olympics 2020

 So actually this was recently held.


In July 2021.

Singapore brought ZERO medals back.

There were some highlights though. 

Yu Mengyu won the hearts of many Singaporeans by powering into the semi-finals of the women's singles. This is in spite of her 42nd world ranking. Came up short in the semis against the world's 1st and 3rd seeds. Still such an inspiration.

Our women's sailing team of Cecelia Low and Kimberly Lim came in 10th in the world in the 49er FX regatta. First time ever that an Asian country made the top 10 in the world. Also very impressive.

Joseph Schooling and Quah Zheng Wen disappointed though. Didn't even make it past their heats. 

Well hopefully Paris 2024 will be a better outing for our Singaporean athletes.
