  1. Soh Rui Yong excluded from Asian Games line-up by SNOC.
  2. SNOC cites failure to honor commitments and controversial behavior.
  3. Soh remains focused on training and breaking the 31-minute barrier for 10,000m.

Wah lau eh, another round of drama in local sports, sia.

The Straits Times reported that Soh Rui Yong, our distance runner, kena excluded from the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China.

But before we go into the nitty-gritty, let’s back it up a little, ok?

So, who’s this Soh Rui Yong?

This dude, right, he’s like an accomplished long-distance runner from Singapore.

Won medals at various competitions, including SEA Games.

But then, like, got some beef with Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) and became a bit controversial, lo.

Now he’s not on the list for Asian Games, and that’s why we’re here, talking about all this.

Why SNOC no want Soh?

So like, SNOC said that Soh failed to honour some commitments he made and continued to say not-so-nice things about other people, despite sayin’ he won’t do it anymore.

Aiyo, like a kid in school who promises to keep quiet but then keeps talking, you know?

“The committee found Mr Soh to have failed to honour commitments which he had provided to the SNOC, including on occasions following his participation at the Cambodia 2023 SEA Games,” said an SNOC spokesman to ST.

Walao, so much drama, bro.

Soh’s response?

Soh was like, “I am focused on training well and building on the positive momentum we managed to establish at the SEA Games. Should I eventually be selected, I am confident I’ll be in shape to break the 31-minute barrier for 10,000m at the Asian Games.” as reported by ST.

Eh, not bad ah, this kind of attitude. Keep fighting, bro.

What can we possibly learn from this?

Sometimes life’s like a game of ask-no-questions, no-questions-asked, right?

How this Soh Rui Yong story yi ge like a mooncake – sweet, yet filled with complex flavor, lo.

Not forgetting some lotus paste drama.

Actionable & Practical Takeaways

  • Stay focused like Soh – keep your eyes on the prize and keep training, no matter what people say or do.
  • Keep your words sweet, lo – you never know when you’ll have to eat them?
  • Life’s not always fair, but that shouldn’t stop you from pushing on and doing your best.

So there you have it – the Asian Games journey of Soh Rui Yong, man.

It’s kinda like a drama series, right?
