Following her silver win at the FINA World Cup, Singapore swimmer Tao Li is looking ahead to next year’s SEA Games and the 2016 Olympics.
She said: “The Olympics will be my main goal.” She added: “I am pretty excited for next year. I hope every Singaporean can come down to the stadium and cheer for us.”
She said that training for the SEA Games starts in mid-November and will continue for the Olympics. However, for now, she said she is working towards setting up a swim school after her retirement.
At a FINA Swim Clinic at the OCBC Aquatic Centre on Monday (Nov 3), Tao Li – together with Australian swimmer Emma McKeon and Singaporean Danny Yeo – corrected the techniques of aspiring swimmers.
Tao Li said: “Singapore has given me the opportunity to go to the United Kingdom, Australia and America to train, so I think I have all the experience that other swimmers might not have.
“I want to set up my own swim club to give back to the association and to everyone who likes swimming, so that I can teach them how to swim. I want them to enjoy swimming. I want to give back to society.”
