The Asian Games 2023, held in Hangzhou, China, have seen some remarkable performances over the past couple of weeks. Now, as the marquee quadrennial intercontinental sports meet draws to a close today with the closing ceremony, all eyes are on the medal tally (all the sporting events concluded on Saturday, October 7). Before we take a look at the medal tally for Singapore at the Asian Games 2023, here is a quick overview of the Southeast Asian nation’s contingent at this year’s iteration.
With 400-plus athletes, the Singaporean contingent at the Asian Games 2023 was the strongest in the nation’s sporting history in terms of the number of athletes. As many as 431 athletes participated across 32 sports. The largest delegation sent by Singapore to a single edition of the Asian Games, the number eclipsed the delegation sent to the 2018 Asian Games by around 160 athletes.
For the uninitiated, at the 2018 Asian Games, Singapore finished with an overall tally of 22 medals. This included four gold medals, four silver medals and 14 bronze medals. The Singaporean athletes added 16 medals to the country’s tally at the Asian Games 2023.
Regarded as one of the greatest sportspersons in Singapore’s history by fans and pundits alike, Shanti Pereira cemented her position as one of the finest track and field athletes in Asia at the ongoing Asian Games 2023. The Indian-origin sprinter became the first Singaporean track and field athlete in 49 years to win a gold medal at the Asian Games when she achieved the feat in the 200-metre sprint event on October 2. She also won a silver medal in the 100-metre sprint event.
So, on that note, let us deep dive into Singapore’s tally of total medals won at the Asian Games 2023.
