  2. facts (published)... just eat .... SNOC is has a stake in the pending of the Court's decision...legal matters from SNOC against SOH were already in placed..."pending on the outcome of the ongoing Trial"... if the Truth is 2min or 700m (Liew) vs 7min or more than 2 mins (Soh) is confirmed...then somebody is going to be answerable to why SOH was not selected to SEA GAMES 2019...to ensure that Mr Soh's allegations were "fully investigated and the truth be determined.".. everyone wants the "truth" to be determined...SNOC also wants the "truth" about it
  3. It probably started as a misunderstanding or misinterpretation of the fact, but it has since escalated and the stakes have risen considerably. My impression from reading the reports is the part of SRY's contention with Ashley's account was that it was put to him during media interview that he slowed to a crawl and that cost him a medal. Ashley did not clarify that during the media interview which perpetuates his act of sportsmanship. That got him nominated for the Fairplay award which he won. I don't think that SRY begrudged Ashley for the award. He just disagree that Ashley
  4. I think only Ashley himself really know if he did really purposely slow down or not. While I admire SRY on his achievement and humility even as a champion, there could be chance he may have observed wrongly especially from a distance. Then this whole issue becomes just a misunderstanding.

  6. 2022...that is, if there is none of "Covid-20" pandemic aka Covid-19 Wave 2...
  7. Hey Uncle thank you - Have moved the century to 2022 Yeah keep your virtual runs clean and green
  8. glad of @Lady Ice to reply...looks like this SCSM Virtual edition, shall miss... Reminder to All, please Keep the SCSM Race Clean and Green... of course, first thing to pop up is ...how is your 100th marathon attempt...given if this is not a Covid-19 year, you should have completed your maiden Century mark? Virtual Race, in uncle's opinion, can never replace the Real Run experience, because it is always a designated route, motivated by fellow runners who form camaraderie for a common objective...finishing a race with betterment of their PB... Virtual Race has no element of
  9. time today... what Soh has acheived in 2019... evidence submitted... let's say, Soh's normal competitive race pace is at 3 min 25 sec for every KM...for first 30km... last chance....did Ashley Liew slow down 2 mins or 7 mins....for Soh (who was the eventual champion for the race) to catch up ... vs
  10. Runner's Entitlements - E-race bib - E-cert - Limited edition 18k plating Chipsley pendant with Swarovski crystals (worth $88), limited to 1,000 sets Given the entitlement, my guess is registration fees will be high!
  11. EXACTLY........ When I heard this news on Monday, immediately I connected it with this topic here....... In my personal opinion, if a slower but lucky athlete slows down for the faster but unlucky one, it indicates that the slower runner just wants to slow down with AWE, he/she would feel shameful if he/she wins the game due to opponent’s fault...
  12. The best thing about virtual SCSM will prove that people can byo Reduce waste generation and of course my avatar would have to have a tyre
  13. a look at how USA Run Races - Recommended Guidelines for Small to Large Running Events...

  15. Reflection on SCSM Virtual Club platform, simply allow sync-ing of all the major trackers seamlessly... otherwise, if not..then what uncle did for past weeks...with Runkeeper...and latest Adidas Running..linked to Sport Heroes Technology (Ironman).... uncle's digital sports experiences are updated at dashboard of SCSM platform >>>>> https://app.sgmarathonvc.com/en/dashboard hours ago, trying out with adidas running runtastic... works fine... uncle is happy...register FREE, gets REWARDED with earned BADGES
  16. Not sure about SCSM platform, but I upload my running records in spacebib exactly like what sicklycat described. Very clear cut. I believe The Star Wars VR has lesser participants compared to ST, being more expensive and just a medal as entitlement.
  17. I honestly cannot relate why an athlete need to slow down for other competitors in a race when their competitors encounter unfortunate scenarios such as taking a wrong turn. I understand that some athletes have this mindset that they must compete under the fairest conditions as possible, so that their win is more "honorable". Or maybe some athletes are just more compassionate than others. But there are so many uncontrollable factors and unforeseen circumstances in a race that it is simply impossible for a run to be 100% fair to all the athletes. In a race, all the runner should just
  18. IT noob here, but I wonder how hard and costly is it to create a platform like SCSM/ Ironman's virtual club that allow sync-ing of all the major trackers seamlessly? All the VR runs should make it that way and nobody would have any problems uploading their results using their preferred tracker.
  19. Another athlete slowed down during the Santander Triathlon 2020 when another competitor took a wrong turn. The difference? It really did cost him a medal. SOURCE: Diego Mentriga shows epic sportsmanship to James Teagle in Santander Triathlon 2020
  20. Actually, I've joined another VR, which accepts screenshots from any tracking apps, or photos of threadmill workouts. On the website, participants just fill up the distance, time taken, and date of run, as well as upload the screenshots/ photos. So the organiser doesnt really have much manual work to do, except for if any, manual spot checks for fraudulent submissions? Wow... 14k sign-ups for ST VR!! From runners' feedback, those who signed up for Star Wars VR also had to use the LIV3LY app - I wonder how many people signed up for the Star Wars event!
  21. It's probably impossible to allow other apps if they are integrating and outsourcing the runner generated data to a 3rd party company like LIV3LY. Smaller scale VR can do it because they are probably processing the data manually. 14,000 slots is no joke and will be extremely time-consuming to process manually. So LIV3LY must be the one to take ownership, own up to the problems and build a proper app to support such large scale event. Simply sweeping the issue under the carpet may be manageable in the short run but if they do not improve, no one will ever sign up another VR th
  22. Apparently, 14,000 slots for the VR was sold. SOURCE: Entries to inaugural Straits Times Virtual Run sold out Let's do some maths. Assume a 50:50 spilt for both categories, the gross revenue for the event would be [(7,000 x $18) = (7,000 x $23)] = $287,000 At least a cool quarter of a million bucks.
  23. SCSM Virtual Club Week 5 schedule: commit to these till 2 Oct: with the most challenging of all... Level Up Challenge 1: Streaker - What’s your longest running streak? For this challenge, we dare you to clock in 30 min of running every day for the 3 days in a row... should be great to achieve marathon distance... Note: VR Run (Weekend) is 1-time session, Challenge (Weekday) has 3 Attempts (win prizes)...meaning you can triple your Challenges (Activities could be in Time-based or Distance-based)... uncle aslo gearing up for this VR Challenge...1 session only
  24. I also think most registrants are unaware of app issues - Good luck to them! I would also have completely missed this point, and made the mistake of signing up...... if not for the alert from this forum, and @RunWalkRun! Will be interesting to see if the organiser relax the rule forcing runners to use their app, when the load of feedback comes in from ST Run sign-ups - So far, they have been replying to app complains with their template response that runners must use their app
  25. Yes, it is. But I believe bulk of runners may not even be aware of the apps issues and even if they do, those running only 17.5 km will probably not mind. If I participate in the 175 km, then maybe the apps issue will be serious concern as I definitely will be very frustrated if my long distances are not recorded.
  26. The low entry fee must have been a draw. Despite all the for the apps. All entries sold out.
  27. come to an end of SCSM 2020 VR4 Week... Week 5 SCSM VR5 Races, what would it be?

    • facts (published)... just eat 🍿.... SNOC is has a stake in the pending of the Court's decision...legal matters from SNOC against SOH were already in placed..."pending on the outcome of the ongoing Trial"...   if the Truth is 2min or 700m (Liew) vs 7min or more than 2 mins (Soh) is confirmed...then somebody is going to be answerable to why SOH was not selected to SEA GAMES 2019...to ensure that Mr Soh's allegations were "fully investigated and the truth be determined.".. everyone wants the "truth" to be determined...SNOC also wants the "truth" about its own investigations are not wrong but is the truth... as for SA's...it is totally different tiff.. more on what SA Executive Director Syed Abdul Maik Aljunied alleged defamation on SOH...so far SOH has won over SA (on some administrative documentation submission on his character that "has bad records" but so far delay until failure to produce evidence)...then SA Legal Team quitted and Director Aljunied had to use his own legal Team...more to admit what he said or claims were wrong meanwhile, SA President and Management Team had stepped down...tomorrow (Sept 25) shall be SA new Election (2020)...Soh's choice of SA Management Committee...will there be a nomination of SOH for SEA GAMES 2021..."nothing more than a GOLD result"... Winning against SA has a bearing on the outcome of somebody who quoted, "there have been numerous instances where Soh has displayed conduct that falls shorts of the standards of attitude and behaviour that the SNOC expects and holds its athhletes to"...what if there were no such records from SA on the standards of attitude and behaviour of SOH to start with...no evidence of SOH's breaching the rules, standards or attitudes...so if no, then why there is every REASON WHY SOH IS AND SHOULD NOT BE SELECTED FOR SEA GAMES 2019.. just eat 🍿....lah...it is going to be a lengthy one....maybe this Trial may extend till beyond SEA Games 2021....and guess who will be very upset/happy once again...SOH, SA, Liew, SNOC or Aljunied?
    • It probably started as a misunderstanding or misinterpretation  of the fact, but it has since escalated and the stakes have risen considerably.  My impression from reading the reports is the part of SRY's contention with Ashley's account was that it was put to him during media interview that he slowed to a crawl and that cost him a medal. Ashley did not clarify that during the media interview which perpetuates his act of sportsmanship.  That got him nominated for the Fairplay award which he won.  I don't think that SRY begrudged Ashley for the award. He just disagree that Ashley slowed down to a crawl and that cost him a medal. In his estimation, even if Ashley has really slowed down, it did not cost him a medal because his finishing time was a bit off from the medal timing.  SA probably slighted because they were the one who nominated Ashley for the award and raised the stake with its 'problem kid' to cease and desist. Of cos, SRY was never going to just roll over. And his further comments prompted Ashley to sue him for defamation. And here we are.  It all seems a little superfluous to me but of cos I'm not the one who feels he's been defamed.
