Whoever said accountants are plain characters? Not content in spending a day in and day out with his college textbooks, Ben joined set his mind on a new sporting challenge in triathlon and soon rose to captain his college Aquathlon team.
x
2 years down the road, Ben qualified for the World Championship in his first 70.3 race at Hefei 2016 with a performance that bested other more experienced competitors. Perhaps coming from a background playing water polo similar to Ironman legend Dave Scott has had great benefits, or perhaps it’s his discipline for competition.
x
Racing the Kona Ironman is doubly exciting for the young rising star of Singapore’s triathlon scene— an event of a lifetime, as it is—because is also to be his first full-Ironman race. Defying the odds is not new to the 25-year-old, born on a leap day.
x
Since qualifying, Ben has pulled out all stops to excel atthe new substantial distance, including taking his training across the globe when he spent months living in São Paulo, Brasil as an exchange student. Racing has been a constantly evolving adventure he thoroughly revels in. No doubt his journey continues on after this World Championship.

Look out for him in Kona, Hawaii and wave to say hi to this suave gentleman with a sunny disposition, or simply follow him on Instagram, @ironmanbooi for regular updates!

Singaporeans Hungry for Success at Berlin Marathon 2017

Press Release for Berlin Marathon 2017 – Evan Chee (PB 2:42:18)

 

file2.jpeg

Berlin 24 Sep 2017 – The sun was nowhere to be seen on this cold Berlin morning of the last Sunday in September. Yet more than 43,000 participants from 137 countries, including 106 Singaporeans, had converged onto Brandenburg Gate ready to conquer the 44th edition of the BMW-Berlin Marathon.

 

This year’s Berlin marathon had also attracted plenty of pre-race hype focused on a battle between the ‘big three’ of Eluid Kipchoge, Wilson Kipsang, Kenenisa Bekele which could lead to a new marathon World Record under 2:02:57. Eventually, Eluid Kipchoge would go on to take the win in a time of 2:03:32, finishing 14 seconds ahead of Ethiopian Guye Andola, a half-marathon specialist (personal best 59:07) who finished with the world’s fastest marathon debut besting Dennis Kimetto’s debutante record of 2:04:16 set in 2012.

 

As in previous years, the Singapore embassy in Berlin hosted a lunch reception for Singaporeans participating in the Berlin marathon. Known for its fast course and iconic finish under the historic Brandenburg gate, the Berlin race is hugely popular amongst Singaporean marathoners, new and experienced alike. Leading this year’s representation are prolific elite athletes, like 2015 SEA Games national runner Melvin Wong, who is competing in his first Berlin Marathon, as well as Evan Chee, who is managed by ONEathlete and trains with Flexifitness under Singapore’s national marathon record holder M. Rameshon.

 

 

ONEathlete, Evan Chee, 35 at the iconic Brandenburg gate.

 

Remarkably, this is Evan’s 3rd marathon in 2017, having set his personal best of 2:45 at the Tokyo Marathon in Feb before finishing 4th (and as Top Asian) at the Bangkok Midnight Marathon. 2017 has been a punishing race calendar for him who has had to frequently travel overseas for business, but Evan seems to be taking it in his stride. Because of the unpredictability of overseas run routes and travel schedules, gym treadmills became his training partner of choice. Prior to Berlin, Evan frequently clocked treadmill runs of up to 30km, which honed his mental focus as much as it did his fitness.

 

On race morning, the heavy rain before the start made for a very wet and humid race with slippery road conditions. The surprising chill took a lot of Singaporean runners by surprise; many were aiming for fast timings and personal bests, but were not adequately acclimatized to take full advantage of the race conditions.

 

“I am happy that my race went well despite the heavy rain and wet conditions. It was a fantastic experience being here and celebrating the togetherness of international marathoning with my participation. I also had my own fanboy moments watching 3 of the very best marathoners in history battle it out today, so it was very inspiring and enjoyable experience for me, and many of the Singaporean runners as well.”

Coming off months of hectic business travel, a new work environment, and a 3rd-place hard-fought finish at the POSB Passion Kids Run 10km race just 2 weeks before Berlin Marathon, Evan had set himself realistic targets heading into this race. Evan also caught up with Matthias Hoffman, a Hong Kong-based German runner and fellow Adidas athlete who most recently came in 3rd at the Sundown marathon in Singapore.

 

file-2.jpeg

 

Having a running group for the first half of the punishing race helped Evan stay focused on the task at hand. Crossing the halfway mark in just under 1:20, Evan quickly realised he was on track for a sub 2:40 finish and set his sights on that target  despite losing touch with the group he had been following. That he was sharing the same course with the marathon greats, and quite possibly partake in marathoning history, gave Evan the mental edge to overcome rough patches when he was alone during the punishing second half of the race. Towards the final kilometre or two, Evan pulled away to finish strong in a timing of 2:42:18, lowering his personal best (set just 6 months ago) by over 3 minutes!

 

With another personal best in his bag, Evan is looking forward to enjoy the remaining of his stay in Berlin before working towards his fourth and last marathon for the year, the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon in December 2017.

 

Wasnt exactly the most ideal weather conditions ☔️ at Berlin Marathon this year but it is definitely a good learning experience on handling wet cold race 😄. ・ 1st half of the race went by quickly & comfortably in 1h19min by sticking with a sub 2h40m group and was hopeful for a similar 2nd half run. Alas had some untimely issue with the non-waterproof laser printed bib & broke off from the run group. Thankful & happy to eventually finish with a new PB time of 2h42min18s 🙏🏼. ・ Congrats & nice run to Nicholas, fellow #teamflexi Andreas (@icyandi), Desmond, Jennifer (@queen43m), Felicia, fellow #adidasathlete Matt (@matt_the_hoff), Melvin (@melvinwongyh) and all who ran today 😄! ・ Also thank you to all the support from @flexifitnessconsultancy (Coach Rameshon & all team mates), @runoneapp and also @adidas_sg. ・ https://runone.co/2017/09/25/singaporeans-hungry-for-success-at-berlin-marathon-2017/ ・ #adidassg #adidasberlin #adidasrunning #adidasrunners #flexifitness #runONE #ONEathlete #fitspo #runner #runsg #justrunnn #sgfitfam #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #sgrunners #justrunlah #runsociety #evantravelruns #takechargeberlin #berlinmarathon2017 #beatberlin42

As mentioned on his social media, Evan will like to put on record his deep appreciation to his coach, M. Rameshon, and training mates from Flexifitness, as well as his supporting sponsors, Adidas and ONEathlete, whose unwavering support was key in making today’s results possible.

ONEathlete Marathoners join hands with ‘Blade Runner’ and Special Olympics 100m Dash runner at Heartstrings Walk 2017

SINGAPORE – This morning’s Community Chest Heartstrings Walk saw close to 8,000 participants, including members of the public, social service organisations and corporate partners who came together to provide opportunities for meaningful interaction among persons with different abilities. It also aimed to show how every person can be empowered to self-advocate, be self-reliant and give back to the community. This year, an increased number of beneficiaries, including persons with disabilities, seniors and youth-at-risk stepped up at the event to volunteer in various roles, such as teaching other participants how to play inclusive games and facilitate interaction.

 

img_2458.jpg

 

Athletes with different abilities also joined in to exchange sporting tips with event participants. Prolific marathoners (managed by #ONEathlete, a social enterprise), Evan Chee (4th in Singapore Marathon 2016) and Ben Moreau (Commonwealth Games participant, based in Singapore) as well as Md Shariff Abdullah, a para-athlete (affectionately known as “Blade Runner”) with a prosthetic leg, took part in the Fun Walk.

IMG_2470

They walked alongside 15-year-old Shawn Goh, a special needs student from MINDS Towner Gardens School who participated in the 100m dash at the Special Olympics this year. Diagnosed with a congenital intellectual disability, Shawn has managed to overcome the challenges he faced and pursued his passion for sports. Shawn’s infectious cheery disposition and affectionate demeanour caught onto the other athletes! These athletes demonstrated how sports and social interactions can be inclusive.

 


Evan Chee said, “It was heartwarming to see so many volunteers, partners and beneficiaries come together as one community to support the cause, and to even interact and understand one another.”

 

Ben Moreau highlighted the significance of athletes using sports and running to give back to the community thru events such as this. He added, “I’m glad to help in whatever way I can because everyone has a role to play. We can also seek inspiration from those who overcome their challenges in life, like Shaun Goh.” 
 

Other than the Fun Walk, the Sky Vertical Marathon up the Marina Bay Sands, and the family carnival was part of the charity event. The 4-km Fun Walk along the Waterfront Trail at Marina Bay was flagged off by Guest-of-Honour, Minister (Min) for Social and Family Development (MSF) Mr Tan Chuan-Jin. This is likely to be the last community event for Min Tan, in his capacity as Min MSF. Indeed a suitable swan song, as the event was helmed by the National Council of Social Services (NCSS), a statutory board under the Ministry of Social and Family Development. Min who initiated SG Cares (a national volunteering movement), will be moving onto becoming the 8th Speaker of Parliament in Singapore.

Highlighting the true spirit behind the event was the Chairman of Community Chest, Mr Phillip Tan (right of Min). He said, “At the heart of our community outreach and fundraising efforts is enabling a better quality of life for our beneficiaries. This year, we are involving our beneficiaries to take on more roles at the event. They are no longer just at the receiving end, but are empowered to co-create solutions and self-advocate. It has been a privilege for us to partner like-minded organisations to foster a more caring and inclusive society. Each of us can give back to our community and make Singapore a better place to live in.” 

Mok won – not gold or silver – but hearts and respect in Kuala Lumpur

Press Release for SEA Games 2017 Marathon – Mok Ying Ren



Kuala Lumpur – On the morning of 19 Aug 2017, after 2 hours 44 minutes of intense racing, TeamSG National Marathoner Mok Ying Ren (Managed by ONEathlete) finished strong in the men’s race which ended with a tightly contested 1-2 finish between Indonesia’s Agus Prayogo and Singapore’s Soh Rui Yong, with the latter securing the gold. The Malaysian duo finished 3rd and 4th in an emotion-filled run on home ground.  The sight of Soh and Agus fighting it out in the last lap was a fitting conclusion to what had been an eagerly anticipated race with one of the best marathon field the SEA Games has seen in recent years.

Mok’s finish of 2:44:15 was nearly 18 minutes off his personal best. The 29-year old doctor-marathoner was tested hard by the humid weather and a tactically-dominated race full of surges and changing leads that also saw one of the pre-race favourite, Thailand’s Boonthung Srisung, drop out in the last 10km. The race was conducted in the heart of Putrajaya on a 6-loop rectangular race route with multiple sharp turns.


“I go into every marathon expecting it to be challenging and today was no different. Having just started my surgical resident training I had to work twice, thrice as hard to give my all for this SEA Games. It was an all-out race effort so there is hardly any room for regret. It’s been a long journey and I’m very happy and thankful to have the support of my dearest wife, close friends, family, officials/staff, supporters and sponsors. Behind every athlete, there is a big ‘team’ like this! That’s the best part of this journey. ” said the 29-year-old doctor-athlete who had strived for a 3rd SEA Games gold medal juggling his training with the long hours as a orthopaedic surgical resident in training.


“I’m very humbled by all the supporters from Singapore, Malaysia and the other ASEAN countries! Even more touched by the love from the game host! This is the essence of the SEA Games!” Mok was cheered on by the crowds of supporters who chanted his name in support; and stayed on to take photos and selfie with the double SEA Games Gold medallist. The host country (especially) had certainly opened up their hearts to Singapore’s prolific doctor-marathoner.

A spokesperson from ONEathlete, which manages Mok Ying Ren said that, “It is heartening to see that Mok’s passion for his patients, didn’t deter his shot at his best! Congratulatory messages have been coming in, and we want to thank Singaporeans for such a great showing of support! Mok hopes that more people will lead healthy lives and ‘run with mok’. He is looking forward to engage the running community even more in the near future.” 


Attempting to win his third SEA Games Gold medal under such trying conditions was an emotional moment for Mok, in the months leading up. His immediate priorities after this race will be to move into his new flat and also prepare for his wedding banquet to be held later this year.

Income Eco Run’s Inaugural ‘Zero Waste Runner’ Category receives overwhelming support as participants relinquish their finishers’ entitlements

Proud of our #runONE Co-founder & #ONEathlete @mokyingren running for #zerowaste at #incomeecorun2017 
Were you there too? Tag @runoneapp & share with us your photos! Leggo... 

 

(SINGAPORE, 30 April 2017) – Close to 10,000 participants raced the streets this morning towards a ‘Zero Waste’ future at the Income Eco Run (formerly known as the NTUC Income RUN 350, organised by Young NTUC). Runners from all walks of lives participated in various categories- the 21.1km Half Marathon, 10km and the 800m Kids Dash – in support of the common cause and was flagged off at the F1 Pit Building.

.

Income Eco Run_21.1km Runners Gearing up for Flag Off

This year’s Income Eco Run saw a special group of 1,500 runners who took their commitment to the ‘green’ cause to the next level by racing as ‘Zero Waste Runners’. These runners opted not to receive their respective finishers’ entitlements (medal for all categories and a finisher’s tee for the 21.1 km Half Marathon category) in a bid to reduce waste. As a result, 87.8kg of fabric and 150kg of metal were saved.

.
It was the first time the race introduced the option for runners to race as a ‘Zero Waste Runner’ and it was fully subscribed before registration closed at the start of April.

.

Income Eco Run_Dr Mok Ying Ren Racing Through The 21.1km Finish Line.JPG

Double SEA Games Gold Medalist in the Triathlon (2007) and Marathon (2013) events, Mok Ying Ren (Managed by ONEathlete), raced as a ‘Zero Waste Runner’.

He shared, ” I’m very happy that I placed first in the 21.1km local category. I just started training again, so I’m quite pleased with my timing! Running as a ‘Zero Waste Runner’ was actually refreshing to see fewer cups on the road after the race!

I run home after work regularly as part of my longer distance training. And I use my own bottle during these runs just like today. I believe that these efforts, though small, enable us to be environmentally conscious, and helps in the larger-scale-of things towards reducing carbon emissions and zero waste. Doing good is now made simple, isn’t it?”

.

As the pioneer of eco-races in Singapore, Income Eco Run adopted eco-friendly practices for different aspects of the race. They included encouraging runners to bring their own bottles (BYO) to reduce the use of plastic bottles and paper cups, giving out post-run e-certificates, producing finisher medals from recycled metal and using bio-diesel fuel for the generators. The event also readily offered sorting cans for trash to be recycled and provided bicycle racks on race day to encourage participates to cycle to the race venue. Participants were also encouraged to carpool or to take the shuttle bus services to the event.

.
Reinforcing Income’s commitment for a ‘Zero Waste’ future, a ‘green’ audit, carried out by Green Future Solutions, was conducted today to set environmental benchmarks for improvements year on year. The ‘green’ audit^ focused on two main areas- waste and energy, and the results are targeted to be available by end May.

.
Mr Marcus Chew, Income’s Chief Marketing Officer, said: “We set out to take ownership of the race this year to champion a sustainable future, which is aligned to our core business of making insurance not just accessible, but sustainable, for all in Singapore so that we can be more future ready. We are heartened by the level of participation in this ‘green’ run, especially the eager subscription for the ‘Zero Waste Runner’ category. This shows that many of us are ready to do our part for a sustainable future. With the ‘green’ audit, we look forward to doing more for our collective eco cause and to inspire and encourage others to do more to protect our environment.”

.

The Run today was graced by various ‘green’ partners who flagged off the race alongside Income’s Chief Marketing Officer, Marcus Chew. This included Ms Sharmine Tan, Manager (Environmental Outreach), Singapore Environment Council and Mr Eugene Tay, Executive Director, Zero Waste Singapore. Mr Lee Kheng Seng, Director, Communications and 3P Partnership Division, Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, said: “The Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) would like to commend NTUC Income on the Income Eco Run 2017 in bringing together runners and environmental enthusiasts with a common goal of moving towards a zero-waste nation. The Ministry supports the ground-up initiative in promoting the Sustainable Singapore Movement and in setting an environmental benchmark for other marathon organisers to emulate.”

.
33-year-old Kenyan, James Barmasai who placed first in the 21.1km Open category shared, “I am feeling great about my win! I expected to win because I trained hard for it. The route was well planned.”

.
Jasmine Goh, a familiar face in Singapore’s running scene was placed twice in the Income Eco Run by clinching third place in the 21.1km Open category and the 21.1km Local Champion. The 38-year-old said, “Overall my race experience was enjoyable! The Income Eco Run has a great eco positioning this year, too! In terms of my performance, I expected to run well and do my best. It also helped that the weather was great!”

.
Runners were brought on a scenic race route as they raced through Gardens By The Bay, Marina Barrage and The Singapore Flyer.
