Schooling and Tao are king and queen of Singapore swimming
Singapore swimmers Joseph Schooling and Tao Li were crowned the Singapore Swimming Association's (SSA's) male and female swimmer of the year respectively on Saturday night.
Schooling's mother, May, was on hand to receive the award from Hugh Lim, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth deputy secretary (Community, Youth and Sports) at the SSA's Awards & Appreciation Night at the Silver Garden Restaurant.
Singapore swimmer Amanda Lim received the award on Tao's behalf. Both Schooling and Tao are currently overseas.
Schooling, a final-year student at Bolles School in Florida, won five golds, one silver, and set four meet records at last month's SEA Games in Myanmar.
