Soh Rui Yong vs The Rest of the World : )

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.

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. :pardon:

facts (published)...

todayonline.com-Marathoners-spat-Soh-Rui

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"...

Athletics_-SEA-Games-champ-Soh-Rui-Yong-

 

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."..

why.jpg

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?

summary of Sept 24...Liew's Arguments...

soh7fa49a237b14aea1.jpg

if Liew really slowed to a crawl, Soh would have caught up with him in about 10 seconds..

let's say, Soh's normal competitive race pace is at 3 min 25 sec for every KM...for first 30km...

205 sec for every KM or 1, 000m...then 10 sec of soh's pace is about 50m...abutthen...

straitstimes.com-Liew-stood-there-says-w

and SOH is very jealous of Liew...World's Sportsman award leh...the Authority nominated, and even PM praised...how can that be a "wrong" decision...some more the Authority had investigated..all Liew did is the "truth"...

and SOH's defence has not proved..Slowing Down is "slow to a crawl"....

and SOH's defence flip-prata...first say 2 mins then later amended and then say 7 min...Last Chance...don't anyhow say...after U-turn...within 100-300m...a witness said got overtake Liew...

and SOH's May the truth prevail...attention seeking to win social media followers to "support"...dream on...

However you want to look at it, the timing of the disciplinary proceedings initiated against an athlete by an out-going MC embroiled in a legal dispute with the said athlete does not makes for good optics. 

The inherent conflict of interest is the big elephant in the room. The independence of the DSC must be beyond repute.

Surely, the sensible thing to do would be to hand the outstanding issue to the new MC. 

I think it is to the new incoming SA President's credit that he said that the issue will be independently reviewed.

Just recieved great news from Singapore Athletics..

uncle has been reinstated as Technical Official with the New SA Committee...

just to update on the Selection Criteria for Marathon for SEA GAMES 2021..

officiate.jpg

SEA-Games.jpg

well it is great to be an Official back at SAA 2020.

What if there is a possibility of an elite-only Run at SCSM 2020? ...of course, uncle shall be "proxy" to know, because this is a World Athletics sanctioned race..

nothing heard from Soh so far on this right?

decision from the Court, pending and not conclusive..because Soh is both as Defendant as well as Plantiff in this case...complicated...may be "longer" than expected...

importantly, let uncle "probes" more on Soh's eligibility for SEA GAMES Marathon 2021 when uncle returns to SAA...

yo, SAA long time no see...almost 5 years since last SEA Games in 2015 (Singapore)...agreed...very turbulent years after that...

was uncle present as Official at the U-turn incident during the SEA GAMES 2015 (Marathon)... nope, uncle was then Official assigned for Field Event - High Jump..all matters then was handled by Track Event Team Officials..

Comgrats to you @kohpapa on your appointment.

Thanks @SG RED DEVIL.100c77d9ac5495cbe6c.jpg

Mr Joe Yap, VP (Competitions Organising) is uncle's bro and fellow cohort when we were certified as World Athletics Technical Official prior to the SEA GAMES 2015...so uncle got connection, that's all...

Previous VP was Mr Ang Peng Siong, also uncle's bro, but Platoon Section Commander reporting to Uncle...before he was disrupted due to Swim for Commonwealth Games and Olympics...a friendly guy, Mr Ang Peng Siong actually...connected to uncle also...school alumnus..that's all...

Selection for SEA GAMES 2019 and the results...

the VP (Training & Selection) responsibility...

worst.jpg

as you can see...the best of 2019 SG Participants are bottoms...

Soon...there will be a new Selection Criteria...

SEA-Games.jpg

Again, only the Top 3 placings of 2019 SEA GAMES are worthy to be selected for 2021...

best.jpg

do you think Soh Rui Yong will be selected for 2021 SEA GAMES?

pending on the decision of the Court Rulings...

The Truth of the Matter...

what is Sportsmanship? Ethics and Honesty...

uncle has no connection or relation with Soh Rui Yong, of course, no Alumnus status whatsoever, maybe only in Sports Community, also no bearing of Soh's career...

uncle just wish that all the power-politics in SA must end, get back to the Competitions and Selection, Training and Represent the country's best interest - Just Do Your Best!

only the Best should Represent the country based on results...subjective matters on character, behaviour, attitude...show uncle a SAINT or BEST PERSON in the World..or are you a SAINT or the BEST PERSON in the World to Judge someone's character, behaviour, attitude?

social media is a norm, chats-FB-instg so let it be independent, otherwise, suing each other pants off until bankrupt because of social media...tsk, tsk, tsk....

ok, so SA dispute with SOH is SA selected and nominated SOH for SEA GAMES 2019, SNOC turned down the nomination.. instead of supporting SOH with a appeal to SNOC, SA cited unspecified breaches of SA's code of conduct by Soh as a reason for its decision for not appealing.. so Soh vs SA: "show me those breaches"...SA delayed with none as proof...until on the LAST DAY of the previous SA Committee (having lost the Election) then said collected evidence in past months that show SOH indeed has disciplinary issues...comments on social media while as a Sportsman and National Athlete...were evidence...so better face the truth...

Mr Malik personal defamation with SOH...we shall leave with no comments since Mr Malik remain still as Executive Director with the new SA Committee.

It will be up to the new SA Committee to clean up the Mess (as reported in recent ST Forum).

    • Sorry that uncle only found out TCS NYC Marathon Virtual Race last weekend...SMSC VR 9 - Double Up! Challenge Definitely make uncle explore 21KM Marathon...what if 8KM + 13KM can be "21KM VR" Badge, if yes, Buy Challenge Bundle to how lian..abuthen..Double Up! Challenge Bundle is not Single Session 21KM VR. Of course, after the announcement of Week 14 - Grand Finale... NO FM catogory...simply...Double UP! Single Session VR even if they add up to 42KM...there are Challenge Bundle and will never be Single Session 42KM VR. IM Asia is a profitable Event Organizer...Marketing and Sales are at their Best...AR app meant for Biking can be used as AR app for Running. Uncle already explained the Technicality...simply a BLE [Bluetooth Apps] sending and receiving data from source - your Running POD either attached to your Shoes or even Chest [Polar brand]...one is Speed of your Running, the other is your Heart Rate...and all these must work with a software [BLE App] on either Ipad or Computer...what so Technical...then AR Experience is actually Marketing Gimmick..Where can I buy these fantastic products for Running? New normal experience for Covid-19 Stay Home and Exercise? Uncle already said..NO, very Normal experience for those who train for IM Biking Experience because in Countries where there is a lengthy period of Winter Months...meant for Simulation Training only.
    • Honestly, all Virtual Races come with the following: 1. Register and Pay First for Race Entry [Limited Entry].  2. Download the Official App to Record, Save your Activity. You have a choice to Manually Upload if you wish to use other Apps. T & C Apply. 3. Often the Official App must only be Activated prior to Race Day. So, there is no practice or if practice, if there are some technical issues, Technical Support by 3rd Party. In some, the Official App can only be used Once only - Start and Finish of VR Event. 4. Cost - Merchandize differentiation. Running Gearing (including Finisher Tee) - Option to Buy as Bundle with Terms and Conditions. Always Medals are part of the Bundle. Why, because Medal is the Metal Merchandize that is why everyone wants - Finisher. Custom-made means Production has not being made - depends on Demand and Supply. 5. Add features that are never part of Race - Augmented Reality definitely is NOT. Exclusive pnly if you are accessible to the Facility with the Equipments to support. 6. Of course, if you don't want ANY OF ALL, then Consolation Prize - Digital Badge.      
    • The world comes together virtually on the streets of Singapore for the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2020 https://app.sgmarathonvc.com/en/blog/the-world-comes-together-virtually-on-the-streets-of-singapore-for-the-standard-chartered-singapore-marathon-2020 While the race has pivoted to a unique format this year, local runners can still look forward to the Grand Finale Celebration experience. Held at the Flower Field Hall in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, the Grand Finale Celebration will give runners the opportunity to collect their race entitlements and commemorate their race achievements against photo backdrops of their choice.   http://bit.ly/scsm2020raceentitlement  
    • I was hoping they priced it such that the SCSM finale merchandise is a compulsory base bundle of around $40-50, then each additional challenge finisher medal we can buy for +$10-15, so those who complete more challenges can choose to add and buy more medals. But SCSM organizer already show that they are greedy for money by not putting the finale sale on the VR store...and forcing people to buy and choose only 1 challenge and finisher... Guess I will just go for useless e-badges/ self-actualization up the hierarchy of needs by planning and hoping to complete as many of the challenges as I could within the period...
    • Congrats @kohpapa for finishing another WMM... wish I could sign this up earlier...
