  • Profile
    • Sophie Soon was diagnosed with cone-rod dystrophy as a child, a condition which causes deteriorating vision and may eventually lead to blindness. However, this has not stopped her from pursuing her interests in sports and music. As a Grade 8 violinist, Sophie has performed with The Sam Willows at the 2014 President’s Star Charity Show. However, she has taken a break in music to focus on swimming. Sophie has won three gold medals in the 2015 SPH National Para-Swimming Championship. She made her debut at the international arena by representing Singapore at the 2015 ASEAN Para Games. Sophie made her Paralympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, finishing 4th in the Women's 100m Breaststroke SB12. Sophie won her first world championships title at the Madeira 2022 World Para Swimming Championships, earning silver and a new personal best of 1:25.89 in the Women's 100m Breaststroke SB12. My Philosophy is, basically this and this is something that I live by, and I alwavs have, and I alwavs will. Don’t, ever, for any reason, do anything to anvone, for any reason, ever, no matter what, no matter where, or who or who you are with, or or, where you are going, or or where you've been, or where you've been, ever, for any reason, whatsoever.
