Those who went for an afternoon movie at Cineleisure on Saturday, 20 Sept would have probably seen a huge crowd outside.

If you did not know what the commotion was, it was our Team Singapore Paralympians celebrating their victory at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games with the public.

Guest of Honour, Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan (Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports) and Mr. Teo Ser Luck, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, were two of the few distinguished guests to grace the celebration.

Have you ever seen 6 Aston Martin sport cars behind one another on the busy road of Orchard before? The paralympians ARRIVED IN STYLE after a city tour in those Aston Martins.

They looked super cool while getting off the sport cars!

There were loud cheers by the young and energetic Team Singapore ambassadors, music performances and a whole lot of media there to cover this momentous occasion.

What’s there not to celebrate when the paralympians bagged 2 bronze, 1 silver and 1 gold medal?
