Singaporean Team in 2020 Olympics

The 32nd Olympic Games in Tokyo promises to be an edition unlike any other. Held amid a pandemic, in a city under a state of emergency, more than 11,000 international athletes will be competing in front of empty stands. But the show must go on; the opening ceremony is slated for Jul 23, followed by 16 days of competition, according to Channel News Asia.

Team Singapore is sending 23 athletes across 12 sports, the highest number that Singapore has contested in at the Olympics. Before Tokyo 2020, the most sports Singapore had competed in at an Olympics was nine at the 2012 London Games.

Singapore's biggest contingent at the Olympics came in 1956 when 51 athletes represented the nation at the Melbourne Games. Tokyo 2020 will also be the first time that a defending Olympic champion will be among Singapore’s ranks, as swimmer Joseph Schooling aims to defend his 100m butterfly title.
