Wai Ching conquers 10th Canton Tower Run in Guangzhou

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 4 — National tower running ace Soh Wai Ching sealed another title to his impressive collection as he powered his way to conquer the 10th Canton Tower Run Up in Guangzhou, China on Sunday.

The 29-year-old completed 2,738 steps to reach the summit of the 450 metre (m) long tower and recorded 14 minute and 23 seconds (s) to break the previous course mark of 14:36s held by China’s Zeng Wen Bo.

Wen Bo , who came in at 14:30s had to settle for second place, while his compatriot, Li Zhi Sen clocked 15:00s  to come in third.

“Proud to fly the Malaysian flag on top of the podium today at the Canton Tower and break the course record from 14:36s down to 14:23s,” Wai Ching said on a Facebook post.

However, Wai Ching missed out a glorious chance to claim double victory in Guangzhou yesterday as he clinched a second place with 16:36s behind the champion from China, Ye Zhao Bang, at 16:23s, in the 2023 International Vertical Marathon final at Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre Station.

Wen Bo completed the podium with a time of 17:14s.
