Soh not Right. Petition launched after SNOC leaves Soh Rui Yong out of SEA Games 2019
Aug 2, 2019
SINGAPORE — A petition has been set up to get the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) to reconsider their decision not to select two-time men’s marathon defending champion Soh Rui Yong for the upcoming SEA Games in the Philippines.
The petition was set up on Friday morning (2 August) on Change.org website by user KM Chia.
The user wrote, “Soh Rui Yong (is) our best national long-distance running athlete. He is the top regional Southeast Asian long-distance runner. However, this year he had a dispute with the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) on the integrity of another athlete.
“SNOC had unjustly left out Soh disregarding his excellent results this year. Let’s get Soh reinstated for the SEA Games representing Singapore.”
As of 12.45 pm on Friday, the petition has garnered 175 signatures. It is aiming for 200 signatures.
Soh Rui Yong 2017 SEA Games
Meanwhile in the Men’s Soh of Singapore defended his title in 2:29.27 again far from Soh best mark of 2:24. Soh who trains in Oregon, USA took the win from his rival and good friend Agus Prayogo the SEA Games 10,000m Champion who took the silver in 2:31.20 and the surprise bronze was Malaysia’s Muhaizar Muhammad in 2:31.52.
Former SEA Games champion Boonthung Srisung of Thailand and The Philippines Jeson Agravante Did not finish the race due to cramps.
But this trails well behind SEA Games Champion Soh who has already run 2h24 this year. In the 2015 SEA Games, it was the first time since the Philippines joined SEA Games that the men had failed to make the podium.
