Team Singapore athletes have 'outdone themselves' at Olympics

With the London 2012 Olympics due to close on Sunday, Team Singapore's chef de mission Jessie Phua has delivered a glowing assessment for her contingent. Singapore's 23-member squad returned home with two bronze medals from table tennis, as well as a national record from Tao Li in the women's 100m backstroke. "Our athletes have outdone themselves at these Games," she said. "My warmest congratulations to all of them, especially to our table tennis athletes who have brought glory to Singapore, and to all who have set new records and raised the bar higher by clocking their personal bests." There were other landmarks too. The table tennis men reached the quarter-finals of the team event for the first time, while sailor Colin Cheng was 15th in the men's Laser Standard and posted the best finish ever by a Singapore sailor at the Olympics.
