Photo-Log: The Singapore Duathlon 2012

This morning, after my 2-hour tapering ride (on my new bike setup) with Nicholas Khaw, we attended the Singapore Duathlon. Due to the long duration of the race, with sprint and full-distance (10K run/40K ride/5K run) formats, I managed to capture only a cursory glance of the 30-39 and 40-49 age-groupers. It was a hot and humid morning, eventually hitting 33 degrees Celcius, with a fair number of dropouts (and for sensible reason). Enjoy the photographs and videos. Congratulations to Tomoya Tsuarata and Ewin Teo for placing 5th and 2nd respectively in their age-group! 60-year-old, male veteran Victor Chan scored another podium finish with third - good job, Victor! , Nicholas Fang, Vice-President of Triathlon Family Singapore was also a participant, showing panache within a tensed ambience. Results of the race are found on the race-organisers' Triathlon Association of Singapore (TAS) website.

When we say leaders, those are person who govern and leads such organization or even countries. We choose a leader to act as person who can be trusted and will also be a way in which people will make sure that he is doing the right thing. And in some occasion leaders are always present. I might say that an emcee is also a leader, because an emcee act as person who entertains and leads the event.
