An Interview With Our Brand Ambassador Richard Tang

Richard Tang

1. When did you start your 1st Triathlon? What encouraged you to do so?

First race was Port Dickson triathlon in 1997. I want to take the challenge of multi-sport since I started as a runner only.

2. What are your most memorable race(s)? Why?

That will be 2011 Ironman Western Australia. I'm not feeling well during the run due to over dehydrated. I peed blood during race but i still continue to push on and at the end I had one of the best Ironman finishing time. The race makes me realize that mental strength is vital for endurance race.

3. What are your personal advice or the newbies going into Triathlon?

Don't rush things and be over ambitious. Start slow and shorter distance race. This is to prevent injury and body burnout.

4. As part of "The Dream Chaser", in your own words explain how you contribute to the ultra-running community?

It's always my passion to train and to see athletes continue to improve their fitness. I will always do my best to guide them.
