A year’s unlimited supply of ramen for runner Soh Rui Yong. And $20,000.

Oct 23, 2021

Popular Japanese food eatery Takagi Ramen has provided runner and its new ambassador Soh Rui Yong a year’s unlimited supply of ramen.

And a cash sponsorship of $20,000. 


In a post posted on Takagi Ramen’s Facebook page, the brand said that “being an athlete in Singapore is tough as training often has to take a back seat to working to keep food on the table.”

“That’s why we are proud to sign a year-long sponsorship with Soh Rui Yong providing him with a $20,000 cash sponsorship as well as an unlimited supply of ramen.

“Together with his current sponsorships from Pocari Sweat and UnderArmour, this will finally allow Rui Yong to focus full-time on his training.”


Soh will be racing at the Valencia Marathon in December and is aiming to qualify for the 2022 Asian Games marathon event. 

The two-time Southeast Asian Games gold medallist is hoping to beat his own national record of 2:23:42 to get his name on the nomination list. 

He currently holds national records in the 5,000 metres, 10,000 metres, half marathon and marathon events.
