Yip Pin Xiu, the first and only Singaporean to win Paralympic gold, took some months off training to focus on her business studies degree at SMU, from which she will be graduating next month. She will return to competition at the World Para Swimming Championships in Mexico City, one year after shining at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. With 100 days to go until Mexico City 2017, she is already back into training and ready to continue writing history for her country. “I am very excited about competing there, it is the biggest event outside the Paralympic Games!” she said. “My main challenge will be to reach full fitness after so many months far from the pools. If I manage to do that, I believe I can achieve my goals for the World Championships, which are setting new personal bests.”
