42-year-old Alvin Lim went up against all odds to make his dream of winning a gold medal at the 9th ASEAN Para Games a reality.
The hand-cyclist outclassed his opponents to clinch gold at the men’s road race H1-H5 earlier today.
Alvin Lim was involved in a near-fatal accident about 17 years ago, when his super bike collided with an oil tanker on his way to Singapore. The accident left him paralysed from waist down.
Instead of lamenting his fate, Alvin picked up hand cycling and set a target to clinch gold in the ASEAN Para Games, and subsequently compete in the 2020 Summer Paralympics.
