Marathon champion Soh Rui Yong has decided not to compete in the SEA Games 2015 10,000m running event.
Soh Rui Yong came in first wining a Gold medal for Singapore in the Marathon event in a wet morning last Sunday.
This news leaves Melvin Wong Yao Han as Singapore’s representative for both 5,000m and 10,000m. Melvin won a Silver medal at 92nd Malaysia Open Athletics Championship 2015, for the 5000m and a Bronze for the 10000m, simultaneously bagging himself new PBs of 15:53.00 and 33:40.28 for the 5K and 10K respectively.
Ethel Lin Zhi Yun will be running in the 10000m event, with fellow representative Mok Ying Rong. Ying Rong, who had come in at first place for the half marathon distance at both the Sundown Marathon and Great Eastern Women’s Run last year, also won first place for her age category at the Taipei Standard Chartered Marathon 2015 earlier this February.
Supporters, Go Early!
Please note that both the 5000m and 10000m are non-ticketed events, and spectators will be admitted on a first-come first-served basis, subject to venue capacity. Admission opens one hour before the competition starts.
