Shao Biaoming

Shao Biaoming is a well known middle distance runner in the local scene with his fluid relaxed running style. What quite a few are discovering is that he is a wealth of information with a willing attitude to share it where ever needed. Recently we had the chance to catch up with Biaoming and he put down his running spikes for a few moments to talk to us about running and find out what’s he’s been up to and what his plans are for 2004

Height: 1.73m

Weight: 56kg

Born: 3 Mar 1986

Events: 800m

  1. Tell us about your background, what are you doing now? studying, working, etc

    Bioaming: I am currently studying chemical engineering at Ngee Ann Polytechnic

  2. How did you get started in Track & Field?

    Bioaming: My brother took it up first and that influenced me to try my hand at it

  3. You recently ran a personal best of 1.57 in 800m at Asian Junior. Tell us more of that race. From start to finish, your mental/physical state, etc

    Bioaming: I just told myself all the way to leave it to God and just go out there and push my limits

  4. How was the recent Asian Junior at Ipoh. Tell us of Team Singapore and your stay there? Was it your first time donning Singapore colours?

    Bioaming: I’ve represented Singapore at the Asean schools meet before but this was really different. The atmosphere was so intense and the level of competiton was crazy and the other competitors are all so so fast!

  5. What is your goal for this year and what is your long term goal?

    Bioaming: My goal for this year is to try and improve on my 800m personal best and hopefully I will be able to hit a 1.55min. My long term goal is to try and go under 4 mins for the mile, unbelivable as it may sound. It doesnt hurt to dream

  6. Singapore’s 800m record is 1.49 by S.Surenda in 1983. Do you think the record is breakable?

    Bioaming: It’s tough to break, the timing is really fast, but records are there to give us an aim to strive towards, and ultimately they are there to be broken

  7. How do you prepare before a race usually? What are you running tactics during your run

    Bioaming: I just eat a good meal about 3 hours before my race, pray, and just give it my best! Red bull too!

  8. The Athen’s Olympics are coming up, who are you supporting. Any running idols you look up to?

    Bioaming: Not supporting any one in particular. Someone i look up to is Steve Prefontaine

We thank Bioaming for this interview, just to have a talk and share some thoughts with all of us
