Singapore Brings Home A Medal for Olympics after 48 years

Singapore is feeling jubilant when the table tennis team finally made it to the final of the women's team event. With this, Singapore is already assured of its first Olympic medal after 48years. The last time when Singapore's weightlifter Tan Howe Liang won a Silver was as far back as 1960 and that had been the only medal Singapore had won previously.

The heroine who is making Singapore the second medal is Feng Tianwei by her victorious win after a final tie of 2-2 in the games, by beating Park Mi at 11-7, 12-10, 3-11, 11-9.

The women table tennis team will be playing against China for gold (cross my fingers), on Sunday. I can't wait to watch this event. It will be ever more exciting.
