Singapore Marathoner, Soh Rui Yong, who recently made the headlines for his spat with the Commandos online and thereafter challenging anyone to hit a timing of sub 7 minutes in a 2.4km race is now crowdfunding for S$180,000 to pay for damages in his defamation lawsuit brought by another athlete, Ashley Liew.

The court ruled in favor of Ashley Liew on September 22, ordering damages of S$180,000 payable to him with S$60,000 of it being aggravated damages due to Soh’s role and conduct in publicising the dispute.

Soh admitted that he did not have that much money on hand, and therefore decided to crowdfund for this.
