Eight present and past student-athlete gymnasts from Singapore Sports School who medalled at the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games and the 2017 ASEAN Schools Games were acknowledged by Singapore Gymnastics at its inaugural Awards Night on 27 January 2018.

Edlyn Ho Zen Yee, 19, was named “International Athlete of the Year (Rhythmic Gymnastics)”.

The First Year student-athlete from the Through-Train Diploma in Business Studies programme was Group Captain at the SEA Games and had won a silver and two bronze medals there. Last year, she also won the National Championships (International Senior) Individual All-Around silver medal and the Singapore Open (International Senior) Single and Mixed Apparatus gold medals. Edlyn also represented Singapore at the Aphrodite Cup in Faliro, Greece, and the Asian Senior Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan.

“Receiving the International Athlete of the Year Award for Rhythmic Gymnastics will motivate me to work even harder and I hope to continue to inspire other gymnasts to succeed,” said Edlyn.

Lincoln Forest Liqht Man, 17, was presented with the “International Athlete of the Year (Men's Artistic Gymnastics)” Award.
