Singapore Gets Olympic Silver Medal In Women's Team Table Tennis


Singapore Gets Olympic Silver Medal In Women's Team Table Tennis

In a historic moment, Singapore's women's table tennis team of Li Jiawei, Feng Tianwei and Wang Yuegu received their Olympic Silver medals today after their final women's team table tennis match against China.

Singapore's Ng Ser Miang, Vice-President of the Singapore National Olympic Council and Executive Member of the IOC, gave out the Olympic Silver medals during a medal presentation ceremony at the Beijing University Gymnasium.

Chinese President Hu Jintao and International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge were spotted among the cheering crowd during the live telecast of the women's team table tennis finals.

The last time Singapore won an Olympic medal was on 9 Sep 1960, at the Palazetto Dello Sport Hall in Rome, when Tan Howe Liang, aged 27, put Singapore on the world map when he lifted a total of 380kg in the lightweight (67.5kg) category to beat 33 rivals for the lightweight Silver medal. As of the last century, it had remained Singapore's only Olympic medal.

Well done and congratulations to Singapore's women's team table tennis for this sterling Olympic achievement!
