A Big RMI Team Joins JP Morgan Challenge

Following the successful participation in the Singapore JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge last year, RMI’s team has grown fast to 13 participants from seven. In particular, there were seven female runners this year, compared to the only one last year. Captained by Dr. Oliver Chen, RMI’s Deputy Director in Education and Industry Relations, the team had scheduled regular training sessions to gear up for the run on 18 April.

At 5.30pm on the day, the team started the race on the Esplanade Bridge, surrounded by tropical beauty and modern steel and glass architecture, against the 33 degree Celsius heat. The male team scored the 71st place out of 494 men’s teams, with a combined time of 1:47:36 of the four fastest runners, Hou Li, James Weston, Oliver Chen and Zheng Wangwei. The female team ranked the 129thplace out of 329 women’s teams, with the first four female runners, Ivy Wang, Lu Ying, Anne Lai and Wu Jing having a combined time of 2:44:05.

The on-going championship is an annual series of international 3.5-mile runs in which companies compete against each other in 13 cities. This is the 10th running and has witnessed an unprecedented capacity crowd of 16,730 runners. Well done, Team RMI, we are proud of you!
