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.
The quartet will join the six athletes who were earlier selected to represent Singapore at the Tokyo Games, scheduled to take place from Aug 24 to Sep 5 this year.
Minister of Culture, Community & Youth Edwin Tong congratulated the four athletes in a Facebook post on Friday (Jul 9).
“Happy to hear that four more Team Singapore para-athletes have been confirmed to represent Singapore at Tokyo 2020! This brings the number of para-athletes representing Singapore at the Games to 10,” Mr Tong wrote.
“Can’t wait to see all of you in action and wearing our flag with pride!”
The national Paralympics team is set to compete in six sports: Archery, athletics, cycling, equestrian sports, powerlifting and swimming.
Team selections for the Paralympics will continue until Jul 30.
