An Inclusive Team Singapore!

In a powerful show of inclusion in sports for all abilities, Special Olympics Singapore was part of 500 Team Singapore athletes at a combined flag presentation ceremony to kick off their sports journey for the Special Olympics 2013 Asia Pacific Games. Special Olympics Singapore will be fielding a contingent of 19 athletes to compete in five sports, led by Chef De Mission (CDM) Ms Linda Prebhash. 17-year-old athlete Kimiki Sin was the flag bearer for Special Olympics Singapore. Kimiki hails from a family of bowlers, and this is her first taste of international competition. Mr. Lawrence Wong, Singapore's Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, said: “Whether you are headed for the Special Olympics Asia Pacific Games, SEA Games or ASEAN Para Games, all of you have in your own ways, inspired and motivated Singaporeans to live better through sports – through values like a winning spirit; an appreciation for teamwork; and a commitment to purpose."
