Penang Top Komtar Towerrun 2019

Soh Wai Ching clocked 7:39 to take the win at the Penang Top International Tower Run on Sunday.

The world number two was the only athlete to go under eight minutes, taking victory ahead of Kenya’s Lel Kipchirchir who climbed the Komtar Tower’s 1,377 stairs in 8:17.

Mohd Saddam bin Mohd Pittli, winner of theΒ R U Tough Enough? Southeast Asia competition in 2018, was third in 8:32.

The win caps a great few weeks for Wai Ching. Last month the Malaysian runner secured second place at the fiercely contested 200-point Ostankino Tower Run in Moscow.

In the women’s division on Sunday it was Michele Tan who came out on top. Tan finished in 10:58, a long way ahead of Stephanie Chong (12:15) in second place.
