He previously issued an apology back in February after being snubbed from representing Singapore at the SEA Games.

Soh Rui Yong’s second apology

After a few years of disagreements with SNOC since April 2019, I wish to put the past behind, so that I can focus on my running and contributing in any way I can to Singapore sports. With this in mind I hereby unreservedly apologise to the SNOC for any past statements I may have made that had cast doubt on their propriety.

A particular example was a blog post in August asking if the SNOC were clowns. In hindsight, the use of the word “clowns” was unnecessary. I am sorry. The blog post has been taken down and I undertake not to use the term “clowns” on SNOC again.

As per SNOC’s request, I have taken down all my posts from April 2019 onwards that may be seen as disparaging to SNOC, and have written to third party publishers to request that they do likewise.

Singapore Athletics nominated me to represent Singapore at the SEA Games in 2019 and 2022, but these nominations were rejected by SNOC. I accept that SNOC had their reasons for doing so. I unreservedly apologise to the SNOC for any statements I may have made on these issues that may be construed as disparaging. I will not do so in the future. I hope to race for Singapore again if selected and fly the Singapore flag high.

Team Singapore is at our strongest when united. as seen in this photo. Let’s put our past differences aside and be united once more.
