As the month of August draws to a close, we look back on the performances of our 23 Team Singapore athletes competing in 9 sports at the recently concluded XXX Olympiad in London, which took place from 27th July - 12th August 2012.

History was made as Team Singapore’s women paddlers brought home 2 bronze medals, the best ever medal haul in an Olympic Games for Singapore.It was always going to take something special to eclipse our achievement of a team silver medal from Beijing 2008, but that was exactly what happened as Team Singapore defied the odds to claim two 3rd placed finishes in the women’s singles and team category at London 2012 to mark a milestone in our sporting history.More notably, Team Singapore’s other athletes also performed well with some bettering their personal bests while others delivered truly inspiring games debuts in their respective sports.
