Singapore swimming sensation Tao Li returns home

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s swimming sensation Tao Li has returned home to a hero’s welcome. A large crowd gathered to greet the Olympic star at Changi Airport on Monday morning.

Tao Li was greeted by Minister for Community Development Youth and Sports Vivian Balakrishnan.

She qualified for the women’s 100 metres butterfly final and set an Asian record of 57.54 seconds in the process.

But she finished fifth in the final.

The 18—year—old is the first Singaporean swimmer to take part in the Olympics finals.

She said: "When I came out, I was really excited because so many people welcomed me back. And I’ve got the next four years and I’ve got more confidence. And I hope at the next Olympic Games, I can get back a medal at least for Singapore." — CNA/vm
