The quartet, including para-powerlifting athlete Nur'Aini Mohamad Yasli, brings Team Singapore’s contingent for the Games to 10.
Four more athletes have been selected to compete in next month’s Paralympic Games.
The four are: Singapore’s first para-powerlifting athlete at the Games Nur ‘Aini Mohamad Yasli and para-equestrians Laurentia Tan, who won a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Paralympics, Gemma Foo and Maximillian Tan.

“Can’t wait to see all of you in action and wearing our flag with pride!”
