Team Singapore for London 2012 Olympic Games

Hi Huneybees,

London 2012 Olympic Games Official Opening Ceremony is just SIX days away and I am very excited and hence decided to write about Singapore's very own team for this summer game - Team Singapore!

Team Singapore is sending 23 Olympians and 8 Paralympians to complete in the world’s foremost sports competition where more than 200 nations participate. Singapore realistic medal hope rests mainly on the Table Tennis woman players Feng Tianwei, Wang Yuegu and Li Jiawei. The Table Tennis man players of  Gao Ning, Yang Zi, Zhan Jian are considered as dark horses although I am hoping for surprises from them!

The rest of Team Singapore are there to complete as part of the necessary investment for their respective sports toward gold medal breakthrough in the regional sport competitions, such as the South East Asia Games and Asian Games.

Do you know that this 2012 London Olympics is special for two special reasons? One of which has an association with Singapore...

Firstly, London was selected as the host city, against cities like Paris, Moscow, Madrid and New York City, during the 117th IOC Session in Singapore on 6th July 2005.

Secondly, London is the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times, having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948.

The London 2012 Olympic Games starts on 27 July with the opening ceremony and ends on 12 August 2012, although the first event begins on 25 July.

Do join me to support Team Singapore - Go Team Singapore!
