Chew Zhe Yu Clarence

Clarence Chew is the first Singapore-born paddler to qualify for the Olympic men’s singles event. In the all-Singapore finals at the Asian Qualification event, Clarence Chew defeated his team mate Koen Pang 4-0 (11-7, 11-7, 15-13, 11-4) to reach the Olympics men’s singles event. At 14 years old, Clarence Chew represented Singapore in his first major game- 2010 Youth Olympic Games. Despite his young age, Clarence Chew has won a total of 2 Gold, 3 Silver and 4 Bronze medals from the 2013, 2015 and 2017 SEA Games respectively. Clarence is no stranger to being one of the youngest in the field – especially compared to his teammates – but he has more than come into his own with victories over players ranked far higher than him. In 2014 at the World Team Table Tennis Championships, the then-18-year-old and world No.259 defeated world No.35 Par Gerell as well as world No.37 Wong Chun Ting to help take his team to the final eight.
