Race to Rio: Joseph Schooling Goes for Olympic Gold
Illustrated by Keh Choon Wee
Joseph Schooling’s race to the Olympics began when he was still a boy. With the support and love of Mum and Dad, he dedicated himself to being the best swimmer he could be. From triumphant victories to devastating defeats, Joseph never gave up no matter how discouraged he got, and he finally proved that no dream is too big for a boy when he won Singapore's first Olympic Gold medal.
