Rio Paralympics double swimming gold medallist Yip Pin Xiu waving to supporters outside Braddell Heights Community Club during the Singapore Paralympians' celebratory parade yesterday morning. The 13 Paralympians braved the hot sun as they travelled in Ferrari cars - and London cabs for the two boccia players in wheelchairs - from Sengkang Sports Centre to VivoCity. Around 1,000 fans turned up at the pit stops and cheering points to applaud the para-athletes, who brought home two golds and a bronze from Rio.
