In the News

This is a personality profile feature (27 September 2009, Saturday, The New Paper) about 60-year-old triathlete Joseph Ong. Read his amazing story of resilience, defying injuries and disappointments, and rebounding to do his next big race. He recently qualified (in The Philippines) for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Clearwater, Florida; he will join Singaporeans Ling Choo Er and Enrico Varella. Three expatriates Craig Slattery, Marco Dittrich and James Middleditch will also join the trio for the 14 November event.

My comments appeared at the end of the feature.

All the best in your preparation for Clearwater!

Thank you, BFG for your encouragement. Three Singaporeans will be there, with another three expats. It should be another exciting event, as I did my first World Championships last year. I look forward to a PB.
