Yip Pin Xiu, a olympics swimmer, has the first wax figure at Madame Tussauds Singapore. At a ceremony on Monday ( Feb 5 ) that also served to announce Singapore’s hosting of the 2025 and nbsp, World Para Swimming Championships, Yip had his waxwork unveiled.
The 32-year-old solidified her position in Singapore’s sports record with five golden awards at the Paralympic Games, the  , and the World Championships. Yip’s foam replica, which took more than six months to create, was inspired by her triumph at the Tokyo Games in 2020.
Yip expressed his gratitude to Madame Tussauds Singapore for creating my wax number, which will be displayed alongside other sports traditions, in an interview with the internet. It gives me great pride and is a testament to all the work and work I have put in over the centuries. I’m hoping that this will also motivate and motivate Singaporeans to pursue their goals, regardless of their abilities, and to promote a welcoming culture.
It is a privilege to contribute Pin Xiu to our brilliant line-up of stars, said Steven Chung, general director of Madame Tussauds Singapore. In addition to honoring her athletic skills, the figure emphasizes the value of inclusivity—a principle we at Madame Tussauds deeply value—and breaking restrictions in the sports industry. The accomplishments of Pin Xiu serve as an inspiration for aspiring athletes and are particularly dear to Singaporeans.
