Singapore gymnast Lim Heem Wei makes history as she qualifies for Olympics

SINGAPORE - Lim Heem Wei has become the first athlete from Singapore to qualify for the Olympic Games in gymnastics. Participating in the London Test Event this week, the 22-year-old clinched one of the spots for the top 30 individual finishers from teams that have not already qualified. Twelve countries qualified outright and will send teams of five gymnasts each. They are the United States, Russia, China, Romania, Japan, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, Italy, Canada, France and Brazil. A silver medallist for the balance beam at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Lim will join Vietnam's Phan Thi Ha Thanh as the only Southeast-Asians at the London Olympics. Last October, Phan grabbed a surprise bronze medal in the vault event at the 2011 world championships held in Tokyo.
