The (ONE)athlete’s High

Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don’t. But once you’ve tried it you’re always craving for it, and the more the better. If you’re one of those who wakes up at 5am to get in a heart-pumping workout before heading to work, then you must know how satisfying and addictive that endorphin rush after a sweaty session can really kickstart your day.

Now the buzz junkies must be wondering: Is there any other way to get that same athlete’s high without working for it?

Nuyou (女友)magazine’s anchor feature of “Men We Love” (MWL) is back for its 2017 edition. Conceptualised in 2002 and in its 15th year running, the annual MWL feature introduces 25 men with desirable qualities, such as successful careers, well-balanced family lives, athleticism, good looks and personality. It is also a fantastic opportunity to introduce and showcase talented men from various walks of life who have stood out in their respective fields, and bring out a different (less known) side to their public persona.

ONEathlete is proud to have 3 of our athletes featured in Nuyou’s 2017 Men We Love – #10 Jonathan Chong, #15 Tan Yiru and #19 Mok  Ying Ren! Check out these behind-the-scenes (#BTS) sneaks and read on for more below!
