Preparing Team Singapore for Tokyo 2020 During A Global Pandemicblank

Until mid 2021, many wondered if the already postponed Tokyo 2020 would be held at all. It would prove to be the most challenging in terms of its health, safety precautions and planning due to the on-going global COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Teoh will share her experience on how her medical team prepared and rendered care to ensure the health and safety of Team Singapore.



Dr. Teoh Chin Sim is Senior Consultant and Clinical Director of the Sports and Exercise Medicine Centre at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital where she cares for both competitive and recreational athletes.

She has served as Chief Medical Officer to Team Singapore at multiple major games, the most recent being the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. She also worked at the Rio, Pyeongchang and Tokyo Paralympics as a member of the International Paralympic Committee anti-doping team.

Come 2022, she will wear a new hat as member of the Commonwealth Games Federation Anti-Doping and Medical Commission, overseeing the delivery of the anti-doping programme and medical services in Birmingham.
