Yip Pin Xiu | Building Awareness about Para Sports in Singapore


She’s opened up lead of a full body length over Feng. She’ll claim the gold for Singapore. After Rio [2016 Paralympics] I took a while off and I went back to school to graduate. I came back to training in the middle of 2017. Tokyo [2020 Paralympics] is near home and quite a lot of my family is going up so I think it’s really special to have them there supporting me. I think there is a lot more to work on leading up to Tokyo. I’m going in really hopeful. My team is a good sports science team and I hope that they will be able to cut inches and differences in milliseconds that I need to get a good time. In my years that I have been swimming there are two things that I am happy that I have done. One is the medals but of course the other thing is that I have created more awareness for Para sport in Singapore so generally people understand Para sports a bit more. People know that they exist and I hope to continue to doing that. So when I was given a platform to do it even better I took it so that I’m able to help sports in Singapore. I do feel a responsibility to give back to society. I do feel a responsibility to continue advocating about Para sports. Sports has given me so much in life. I do hope to see a Singapore that everybody lives a healthier and more active lifestyle.
