MAN DIED WHILE PARTICIPATING IN THE SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL TRIATHLON

Dear A.S.S. Editor

A man has tragically died in the Singapore International Triathlon Sunday morning at East Coast Park. The man was identified as a 42 year old Briton, Steve Begley, who was a former professional rugby player who used to play in France, Scotland and Ireland.

It was believed he ran into trouble before 10 am, where he was competing in the standard distance relay event, where a trio would each take part in a part of the race. He was in the 1.5 km swim part of the race, where he was pulled out of the waters to shore, with emergency medical personnel administered CPR on him. He was later evacuated to SGH, where he sadly died.

The cause of death is yet to be determined.
