The Boccia Athlete

This is Nurul. She is challenged with spinal muscular atrophy type 2, which is a neuro-muscular condition that weakens and deteriorates her muscles in her arms and legs over time. She chanced about Boccia, a precision sport during her university days. Through the help of Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC), Nurul found her new passion and trained hard. She represented Singapore at the London 2012 Paralympic Games and won a Gold in the BC3 Pair Event at the recent 2014 Boccia World Open held in Canada. This is Nurul.
