On Wednesday morning at Bedok Reservoir, well after 9 am under a blistering sun, Wah broke the tape first in the 'A'
Leading a race was a novel concept. Winning gold and bagging a massive PB was the cherry on top. Even then, Nedunchezian Selvageethan, Selva for short, felt that he had room to improve. “(Running from the front is) kinda new,” said Selva. He led the entire race to win the ‘A’ Division Boys 800m

After Toh Ting Xuan completed the 3,000-metre race at Choa Chu Kang Stadium on Thursday morning, she took a sharp right to the ice station to cool off from the blistering sun without even a glance at the clock. She only knew that she was first. She just didn’t know how fast she ran.
