Olympic Silver Medal For Women's Team Table Tennis

Singapore made history when the women's table tennis team of Li Jiawei, Feng Tianwei and Wang Yuegu claimed their Olympic Silver medals today after their final women's team table tennis match against the team from China.

Since 9 Sep 1960 when Tan Howe Liang won a Silver medal after lifting his way to the second spot in the lightweight category of the Olympic weight lifting competition, no other Singaporean individual or team has won another Olympic medal.

When Singapore's Ng Ser Miang, Vice-President of the Singapore National Olympic Council and Executive Member of the IOC, gave out the Olympic Silver medals during a medal presentation ceremony at the Beijing University Gymnasium, Li Jiawei, Feng Tianwei and Wang Yuegu became the only other Singaporean medal winners (and only Singapore women winners, and Singapore team winner) at an Olympic Games.

Chinese President Hu Jintao and International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge were present to witness the occasion during the live telecast of the women's team table tennis finals.

Singapore Youth Olympic Games blog congratulates Li Jiawei, Feng Tianwei and Wang Yuegu, plus the coach, support staff and everyone at Team Singapore Table Tennis who helped in one way or another to make this Silver medal win in women's team table tennis a reality.

Well done Singapore!
