23-years-old Soh Rui Yong whose recent men marathon attempt; his debut to be in-fact, completed the California International Marathon in a timing of 2 hours 26 minutes and 1 second.

The effort alone placed him as the second in the ranking of all-time best timing for the event ran by a Singaporean. It’s behind only the current national record held by Mr. Rameshon, 2:24:22 (1995).

The scholar who is currently enrolled at the University of Oregon is back in Singapore for the holidays and is visiting family & friends.
