The athletes selected include dual world record holder para-swimmer Yip Pin Xiu and world number one para-archer Nur Syahidah Alim.
Six athletes have been selected by the Singapore National Paralympic Council (SNPC) to represent Singapore in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Among the six are dual world record holder para-swimmer Yip Pin Xiu and world number one para-archer Nur Syahidah Alim, who just had two books published by the Singapore Disability Sports Council about how she went from a young girl who was told she was weak to becoming the world’s top para archer.
Singapore has also earned a team slot in equestrian. The selected athletes will be announced at a later date, SNPC said.
The Paralympic Games is scheduled to take place from Aug 24 to Sep 5 this year. Selection for the Games will continue until Jul 30.
Along with the Olympics, the Games were delayed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
