black sheep in the running community does happen...so is the National Sports Association in Running....Singapore Athletics..."betrayed" the confidence and motivation of its athletes with "power-politics" and whims of "social media" sue you for sharing "insiders' info" to the public...

it is important to have "whistleblowers" when things bad start to happen...the truth shall be known if the bad news are swept under the carpet for too long...begin to be too ugly to be acceptable as Fine, Jail, lawsuits...

now that covid-19 pandemic also means travelling to overseas for running is also curbed...

just look at all the overseas race forum threads for 2020...NIL
