With a backdrop of beating drums, the 63-member Special Olympics Team Singapore had a rousing sendoff ceremony last Friday at *SCAPE, a youth hub in central Singapore.

The 46 athletes (plus 17 coaches) will compete in Aquatics, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Bocce, Bowling and Soccer. In a touching moment, the Singapore state flag was presented to the team by Major-General (NS) Chan Chun Sing, Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports. Major-General Chan lauded the athletes in his speech, declaring their presence in Athens “an inspiration to everyone in Singapore and beyond.”
