Team Singapore's haul from the Manila 2019 SEA Games in the sport of wrestling was 3 bronze medals.
Inspired by that initial success, Team Singapore has sent a 4-member team to compete at the current Hanoi SEA Games. 23 year old Danielle Lim is the only debutant, while the squad also includes Timothy Loh, Gary Chow and a defending bronze medal winner, Lou Hong Yeow.
Prior to the SEA Games, the squad spent time training in Mongolia - their 1st overseas training stint in more than 2 years, due to the global pandemic.
