Janelle Tong Jing Xuan
- Event(s)Womens 400m Freestyle S10
Swimming was recommended to Janelle by her physiotherapist because sports is a form of therapy to improve her functional abilities. Janelle got started in sports when she was 3 years old.
Moving on land was sometimes difficult because she is not very coordinated in my movements and has difficulty gauging the height of stairs. However, the water is a different medium, it is so much easier to move in water as compared to land, therefore Janelle finds that she has more freedom of movement in the water. Furthermore, the sport is thrilling because she always wants to challenge myself to swim faster than she did in the previous competitions.
Janelle represented Singapore at the Bahrain 2021 Asian Youth Para Games. Janelle want to continue to challenge herself and to push her limits to see how far she can go. Her long-term sports goal is to qualify for the 2028 Paralympic Games. Outside of sport, Janelle enjoys doing art, reading and baking.
