  • Profile
    • Nurulasyiqah Mohammad Taha (Nurul) is a Team Singapore boccia athlete in the BC3 class. Nurul, who has spinal muscular atrophy, started playing boccia in 2004, and has traveled to many countries, meeting athletes from around the world. In 2009, Nurul won her first regional medal at the Asia and South Pacific Boccia Championships, capturing silver in the tournament behind four-time Paralympian Jeong Ho Won of the Republic of Korea. Nurul was also the first boccia athlete from Singapore to qualify and compete at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, and four years later, she was part of the Singapore Boccia BC3 pair who finished fourth at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. In 2018, Nurul clinched Singapore's first medal at the Asian Para Games - a silver in the Boccia BC3 pair event. Playing boccia was also how the Sinaporean found her passion outside of sports – learning languages. Nurul, a two-time Paralympian who made her debut at London 2012, knows six languages, including Korean and Japanese, which she studied after starting boccia. For the 4th Asian Para Games, she seeks to better her 6th place finish in the BC3 individual event.
