Let the games begin!
Team Singapore off to a positive start!
Opening Ceremony marked the beginning of the 9th ASEAN Para Games and for Singapore it meant sending it’s largest away contingent for the regional para-sport bi-annual event. It also has a certain significance for some athletes as it would be their debut and for others, such as Theresa Goh, she has come full circle as her debut was in Malaysia more than a decade ago! Plenty of eyes will be on our golden girl Yip Pin Xiu who took home two Paralympic golds in the recent Rio games and another stellar performance is expected from her.
Suahairi Suhani led the contingent out which looked confident as we already took home 5 medals from para-cycling earlier in the day.
Our Men’s CP Football Team will be looking to replicate similar inspirational performances from 2015 with a few new additions to their squad.
All in all it will definitely be an intense 7 days ahead for these athletes. Team Singapore will be prepared to put on a strong show and all your support will be needed. Do stay tune for the latest results on our athletes progress throughout the day!
