2011 DEC Standard Chartered Marathon, Singapore

041211 (Sun)

Firstly, my condolences to the family and friends of Singaporean marathon runner Malcolm Sng Wei Ren who collapsed at the finishing line at the Padang after his 21 kilometre run and passed away in the hospital. Rest in peace.

This is my second year taking photos of the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore and I find that this year, the marathon was much more quieter with lesser supporters and photographers althought there was an increase in the number of marathon runners from 60 000 to 65 000.

It was a cool and cloudy day in the morning when the first male runner started to emerge, Charles Mwai Kanyao from Kenya who was a dark horse as the organisers did not know about him.

I also saw the first female runner Irene Jerotich Kosgei from Kenya and Singapore’s men runner Mok Ying Ren. However, I missed seeing Singapore’s woman runner  Anne Date Qi Hui.

Japanese runner Y Hashimoto really made my day, wearing a blue sequin dress and an orange crab head gear weaved like a lontong

Congratulations to all the marathon runners who completed the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2011.
