It doesn't seem that long ago when I met this bunch of guys at Hong Kah Secondary while working on my unofficial FYP @disisable and now here we are — two APGs later in @KL2017 🤙🏻 They will be fighting to qualify for the semis tomorrow in their #cpfootball match against #Cambodia, let's do this 💪🏻

This is the story of 0.01 seconds.
Written by former national athlete Kenneth Khoo, and extensively supported by interviews with athletes like former swimmer Ang Peng Siong, former journalist Jose Raymond and other sportswriters, sports personalities, Singapore Athletic Association (SAA) members and coaches, Running on Empty follows UK Shyam's eventful track career from the 1990s–early 2000s, where he won his first race at the National Schools Track and Field Championships in 1993, to being the golden boy in Singapore athletics in 2001 for breaking C Kunalan's record by 0.01 seconds amidst controversies with the media.
Shyam’s 10.37s timing still stands as the national record to date.
