Scott Wong Wei Gen who is our multiple record holders in the junior men and age-groups boys’ discus event has a personal breakthrough in his other specialty, the shot put.
The 23-year-old, who competed at the Leeds Metropolitan University Invitation on the 20th of April, hurled a lifetime best of 16.06 metres in the shot put 7.26kg men’s event.
The doctor-in-training improved his previous personal best of 15.89 metres which was achieved and established twice last year at the Singapore Open (Aug) & Singapore National Games (Sep).
Scott finished second behind his teammate, Rimantas Martisauskas (18.01m) of athletics club ‘Sale Harriers Manchester.
He also competed in the men’s’ discus 2kg event in Leeds and achieved a season-best of 48.57 metres, also another personal best.
The young athlete studying at Manchester University is now the local season leader in both the shot put and discus event.
The 2013 Myanmar SEA Games qualifying mark set by SAA pegged at the last edition bronze medal for the shot put and discus event are 17.08m and 50.28m respectively.
The Singapore Marathon had its beginning in 1982 when it was first established as a ‘fun run’ and 28th edition later, the event is now an IAAF Gold Label Race, and could easily attracts participation up to 50,000 per race.
Organised by then the Singapore International Marathon Organising Committee, the inaugural event saw Raymond Crab from the UK and Winnie Ng from Hong Kong to first cross the finishing line in a time of 2:24.19 and 2:55.11 respectively.
The men local category was won by Goh Gam Seng who finished the course in a time of 2:43.55.

The sport of running was getting popular with the masses back then, and the Singapore Marathon became the ideal event for one to seek a personal challenge.
It was a race not often against a competitor but a race against oneself.
