Sports

Singapore's first four medals (all of them gold) came from weightlifting. Altogether, Singapore has won eight medals in weightlifting, but none since 1986. No other gold medals were won until 2002, when table tennis first appeared on the Games programme. Singapore was an immediate beneficiary, winning three golds in 2002, four in 2006, six in 2010, and six again in 2014 Commonwealth Games, topping the medal standings in the sport each time. The country also won a gold medal in badminton in 2002, and eight gold medals in shooting in various years. Singapore's first swimming medal came at the Glasgow games in 2014.

Singaporeans have won medals in seven sports at the Commonwealth Games: badminton, boxing, gymnastics, shooting, swimming, table tennis and weightlifting.
