Singapore paddlers' Olympic feats honoured in limited-edition stamps

The Singapore Table Tennis Association has launched a series of limited-edition stamps to commemorate their paddlers' achievements at the London Olympics last year.

The stamps, which feature all six Olympians - Feng Tianwei, Li Jiawei, Wang Yuegu, Gao Ning, Yang Zi and Zhan Jian - were presented to major donors at the association's fund-raising dinner on Friday evening at the Shangri-La Hotel.

Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong was the guest-of-honour at the dinner, which raised over $460,000 for the sport.

The Republic's table tennis team picked up two medals in London, a bronze in the women's team event and an individual bronze for Feng.

A total of 1,000 sets of stamps are available for purchase at SingPost for $15.90 each.
