Singapore's swim queen Tao Li has been named as one of the 60 Team Visa athletes ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
The Team Visa initiative, a global sponsorship programme created to support athletes in their pursuit of Olympic glory, will see Tao join an illustrious list that includes China's tennis star Li Na, American sprinter Allyson Felix and multiple Olympic gold medallist Michael Phelps.
According to Visa, Tao, who has won two consecutive Asian Games gold medals and countless accolades in the SEA Games, was chosen because of her past achievements in the pool.
As part of the sponsorship, Tao, who will swim in the 100m butterfly in London, will receive "financial support, life-skill training and valuable marketing exposure".
