Winning Hearts (And Medals) in the Pool

Carmen Lim , National Para Swimmer

Winning Hearts (And Medals) in the Pool

This episode, we focus on the recent Asean Para Games held in Cambodia. The national team, consisting of 144 athletes, had an outstanding performance, with 62 athletes making their debut at the Games. Surpassing their initial goal of 33 gold medals, they brought home nearly double that number, achieving 50 gold, 38 silver, and 28 bronze medals. This remarkable achievement positioned them fourth overall in the final standings.

Among the standout performers in the team was a young woman who exceeded expectations at the Asean Para Games. Despite being born with a rare birth defect called amelia, which results in the complete absence of one or more limbs, para swimmer Carmen Lim won the admiration of many and earned three gold and one bronze breaking yet another record (100m breaststroke SB8 category) with a time of 1:41.32s.
