The SAA Selection & Training Sub-Committee and the Race Walking Sub-Committee have decided to carry out a 2nd Trial to select SINGAPORE’s Representative at the Asian 20km Race Walking Championships in NOMI, Japan. The reason is that the results of the trial held on 8th Jan 2012 was “not satisfactory”. We are, once again, inviting walkers (Singapore Citizen) to join-in the 2nd Trial to be held on 5th February 2012 at the Marina Promontory, the reporting Time is 0700 hours. The Selection Criteria & co-payment scheme (for non-qualifier) – items (a) to (e) remain unchanged (See below).
