First Asian Games Sailing Gold Medallist

First Asian Games Sailing Gold Medallist

Benedict Tan won the sailing gold medal at the 1994 Asian Games in Hiroshima. The young doctor was so well ahead of his competitors in the Laser class, that he didn’t even have to sail the final race. He was also the first recipient of a S$250,000-cash award under the SNOC’s Multi Million Dollar Award Programme. Tan was awarded Sportsman of the Year thrice – in 1992, 1995 and 1996.
