After a dazzling opening ceremony at the Manahan Stadium, athletes burst into action for APG 2022 on day two. Eighteen of Team Singaporeā€™s para athletes participated across five sporting events.

Singaporeā€™s women goalball team edged its Indonesia opponents 6-4 in a hard fought victory. The team consisted of five para athletes, two of whom are sisters Inez and Joan Hung. Unfortunately, the team lost 9-5 to Thailand in its second encounter of the day.
