Extracted version:

DESPITE a slower finish compared to his debut outing last year, veteran competitor Yee Choi fulfilled his goal to be among the finishers in the men’s veteran (above 40 years) section for the second consecutive year at the Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon 2010 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah recently.

For the large organised group from the Klang Valley with a total of 45 entries in the pack, only two survived the gruelling race.

Edwin Goh

Besides Yee Choi, it was also a memorable trip for 41-year-old Edwin Goh returning with a respectable 5 hr 45 min.

Having failed to finish the race when his campaign ended one kilometre away from the summit last year, Edwin said he was determined in accomplishing his target of tackling the race in his recent appearance with a solid nine-month of training as a build up to the event.

“Following the setback, I realised that I needed to put in a bigger effort. I started my training as early as January. I also worked out in the gym twice a week during my lunch breaks.
