Supra Singhal (born May 2, 1982 in Kampala) is a retired Ugandan swimmer, who specialized in sprint freestyle events.[1] Singhal competed for Uganda in the women's 100 m freestyle at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She received a ticket from FINA, under a Universality program, in an entry time of 59.20.[2] She challenged seven other swimmers in heat one, including 15-year-olds Maria Awori of Kenya Nathalie Lee Baw of Mauritius. Entering the race with the fastest-seeded time, she faded down the stretch to pick up a sixth seed in a poor time of 1:08.15. Singhal's swim had also been overshadowed by fever and arm sprain that shortened her time for proper training and concentration.[3] Singhal failed to advance into the semifinals, as she placed fifty-second overall in the prelims.[4][5][6]
