National gymnast Lim Heem Wei has made history by becoming the first Singaporean gymnast to qualify for the Olympics.

The 22-year-old picked up one of 37 spots left at the sport's test event on Thursday in London. She will be one of just two South-east Asian female gymnasts who have earned a ticket to the quadrennial Games.

Lim, who will be 23 by the time the July 27-Aug 12 Games come round, will compete in the women's individual all-around event.
