“Further, with immediate effect there will be an indefinite moratorium on any shoe (whether with or without spikes) that does not meet the following requirements:

  • The sole must be no thicker than 40mm.
  • The shoe must not contain more than one rigid embedded plate or blade (of any material) that runs either the full length or only part of the length of the shoe. The plate may be in more than one part but those parts must be located sequentially in one plane (not stacked or in parallel) and must not overlap.
  • For a shoe with spikes, an additional plate (to the plate mentioned above) or other mechanism is permitted, but only for the purpose of attaching the spikes to the sole, and the sole must be no thicker than 30mm.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) has issued a series of health and travel advisories following the outbreak of the “Wuhan Coronavirus” in mainland China (See infographics from link below).

Singapore Athletics are advising athletes and coaches based on these advisories and any subsequent updates online at www.moh.gov.sg/2019-ncov-wuhan to defer all travel to mainland China until further notice as an added precaution.

Travellers should monitor their health closely for two weeks upon return to Singapore and seek medical attention promptly if they feel unwell.

You are also advised to advocate the practice of good personal hygiene at all times.

Athletes, coaches or training partners either based in or from China, should ensure that they register their travels with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs online (www.mfa.gov.sg/eRegister-my-trip) and link up with MFA’s mission in China if they are already there.

Singapore Athletics also advise athletes & coaches who are feeling unwell or have symptoms not to participate in SA competitions but to rest.
