Edison Chen made it to the headlines again. This time, it also involves heavy panting, profuse sweating, heart pounding and mind blowing physical actions!!!
But instead of pounding on top of some hot shot female actresses from HK, he was seen pounding the tarmac for the Standard Chartered HK Marathon which was held last Sunday! Sorry, can't resist the pun! LOL!
I would like to share with you guys some shots of Edison Chen at the starting point of SCHKM 2012. Photos courtesy of Mr. Tey Eng Tiong, a ultrarunner/ photographer/ running ambassador from Malaysia.
Edison was decked with Nike gear from top to toe - long sleeve shirt, running short and a pair of Nike running shoes. Is that the latest Nike Fuel Band on his right wrist? (To Nike Malaysia: When are you guys launching it here? Heheh!)
A discerning audio fan we think - he also sported a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones. We wonder what was he listeing to...:D His own album? Heheh!
For those uninitiated, Edison Chen (陳冠希) is an actor-singer from HK who was embroiled in a sex photo scandal that has rocked Hong Kong and publicly embarrassed celebrities, including Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐), Bobo Chan (陳文媛) and Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) about four years ago.
He also caused a media buzz when he was found dating a barely legal 16-year-old model, Cammi Tse (謝芷蕙) and photo of them kissing circulated in the Internet last year.
A lot of people accused his participation in the charity run as an attempt to offset the bad press he received for his sex scandals.
Despite the bad press and all, Edison managed to complete the 42.19km race in an exceptional timing of 3 hours, 55 minutes and 46 seconds, raising a total of HK$1 million (RM388,200) for Nike's NOMADRUN Charity Project, which benefits the Changing Youth Lives Foundation, Hong Kong.
Wow...Edison, very well done-lah!
Note: Edison & Finisher Medal photo grabbed from HERE.
Check out the newspaper cutting from HK. Spotted are local Malaysian runners, Terence & Chooi Wan (in yellow circle) sharing the headline behind Edison Chen.
Note: Newspapers cutting grabbed from Amelia's FB. Heheh! Thanks!
And one of my lucky friends actually managed to take a pic with Edison! Julian recounted the moment with glee, "He was warming up and I just asked him to take a picture. He paused and answered, "Ok, fast...". Then all the paparazzi zoomed over!"
Thanks Julian for the pic!
