Ordinary - The Story of Five 8th ASEAN Para Games Debutants

04 November, 2015

“Ordinary” tells the stories of five 8th ASEAN Para Games debutants – Kalai Vanen (Powerlifting), Aishah Samad (Shooting), Sophie Soon (Swimming), Marc Chiang (Goalball), Lieu Teck Hua (Athletics).  Like their SEA Games counterparts, they juggle between family, work or school and their pursuit for sporting excellence. They train hard, if not harder than most, to earn their national colours and to prepare for their biggest competition on home soil.

They, together with the other APG athletes, embody the Singapore spirit of determination, courage in the face of adversities and a drive to be more than ordinary.

We hope “Ordinary” will inspire you to strive for your own extraordinary as we forge a more inclusive society together as #OneTeamSG.
