A Medal for Singapore?

Yesterday, Singaporeans were all so excited to see Tao Li swimming towards the 100m butterfly finals. It was pure joy! She came in fourth fastest to qualify for the finals. That is really something the Singaporeans should be proud of! Her record time was 57.54 seconds in the 100m butterfly heats. That means she will have a chance to for a medal and I'm crossing my fingers.
Tao Li done Singapore proud already. She is the first Singaporean to reach the Olympic Swim Finals! She was voted as Sportswoman of the Year in 2007 and 2008 for her determination and dedication well beyond her teenage years.

Besides Tao Li, womens's pair for badminton, Li Yujia and Jiang Yanmei played well against the American pair Eva Lee and Mesinnee Mangkalakiri for results 21-12, 21-12. That was really good. They were both prepared, mentally and physically and they were alert all the time. The next game will be against the Koreans and they are in anticipation.

Singapore may be a just Little Red Dot, but it's flaming now.
