Joseph Schooling and his parents donate $200,000 to Singapore Swimming Association

After more students sign up for swimming lessons to be the next Joseph Schooling, the next generations needs a boost and they got just that from Joseph Schooling and his parents two days ago (Dec 7).

The Singapore Swimming Association (SSA) received $200, 000 which would be utilised for the benefit of the sport's development.

According to SSA's Facebook post, the Schoolings gave twenty percent of the $1 million awarded to Joseph after winning a gold medal at the Rio Olympics 2016.

The 100m Butterfly swimmer and his family hope it would help identify, groom and train the next swimming Olympic champions of the country. 

His mother, May Schooling, added,  “My family and I are honoured to have the opportunity to give back to the association, and have Joseph leave a legacy for aspiring athletes.

"We believe that the money donated will benefit the fraternity.

"We hope that this will be a form of inspiration and encouragement for our local athletes to excel in the sport and achieve great results for our nation.”
