Singapore: Orchids named after Olympic swimmersSwimmers Joseph Schooling and Yip Pin Xiu became the first local athletes to have orchids named after them on Monday (Aug 7) at a ceremony in the Singapore Botanic Gardens' Botany Centre.
The Dendrobium Yip Pin Xiu's flowers have white petals with a hint of magenta, complemented by a bright purple lip.
The Dendrobium Joseph Schooling's flowers have yellow petals, accompanied by prominent green lips.
Said Paralympic champion Yip, who intends to care for the plant herself: "I'm very honoured, because the orchid is Singapore's national flower and to have something so beautiful named after me is a true honour."
The pair are the second and third Singaporeans to receive the honour under the celebrities naming programme, after singer Stefanie Sun in 2006.
