Media Release: Ethiopian Clean Sweep At Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon



(Dubai, UAE): It was yet another day of dominance for Ethiopian athletes at the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon as little known Lemi Berhanu Hayle and the sublime Aselefech Mergia swept the board in the world’s richest marathon.

Just 20 years old, Berhanu left some of the biggest names in long distance running trailing and in warm weather conditions clocked a world leading time of 2:05:28 to win by 24 seconds from 2013 Dubai and Boston champion Lelisa Desisa. Deribe Robi completed an-all Ethiopian podium with a time of 2:06:06. Ethiopia’s superstar Kenenisa Bekele dropped out beyond the 30km mark, appearing to suffer from a leg injury.



In the women’s field, Aselefech Mergia celebrated her 30th birthday in style with a perfect comeback, winning the most thrilling finish in the history of the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon.

The Ethiopian, who had taken time off competition to have a baby, returned to the marathon for the first time since the summer of 2012, winning in 2:20:02. In a duel right to the line, reigning World Half Marathon Champion Gladys Cherono was beaten by just one second on a superb marathon debut, while fellow Kenyan Lucy Kabuu was third in 2:20:21.



Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council, a record field of more than 25,000 runners entered the marathon, the 10km Road Race and the 4km Fun Run on a day that saw the event beamed to millions of homes across the world.

“I never would have thought that I could win this race,” said Berhanu, who collected his trophy from HH Sheikh Mansour bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Standard Chartered UAE CEO Mohsin Nathani. “It was my dream to do this in Dubai one day, but I didn’t expect it to happen this year. With around one kilometre to go, I sensed that I could win.”

He has now improved by more than five minutes and is unbeaten in two races. “If my federation selects me then I would really like to run the marathon in the World Championships in the summer,” added Berhanu, who said he had no idea what to do with the prize money of US$200,000. “I never thought about the money. I really don’t know what I will do with it.”



Meanwhile Dubai proved a tough marathon experience for Kenenisa Bekele. After winning his debut in Paris last April with 2:05:04 and finishing fourth in Chicago in 2:05:51, Dubai brought hope but ultimately frustration. Bekele ran in the lead group up to the 28km point but dropped back quickly and finally stopped shortly after 30km.

“Kenenisa suffered hamstring problems in both legs,” said his coach Renato Canova. “But I think the real problem is in his right Achilles tendon. At the end of November he had to reduce training because of this.

“A world record was never a realistic target, but a 2:04 time seemed realistic. When I saw him running today he did not look relaxed, he looked tight, which is why he developed hamstring problems.But I remain very confident for his future marathon carrier - I think he will do really well.”

The strongest women’s field ever in Dubai produced its own share of drama. Firstly the little known Tigist Tufa, Ethiopian-born and running for Bahrain, broke clear shortly after the start and maintained a daunting pace, leading a talented chasing group by a solid minute at 20km, which suggested a 2:18 finishing time.

But she paid the price in the end and was caught by the pack at 34km by a group comprising Aselefech, returning to racing after maternity and in search of a third Dubai title, fellow Ethiopians Aberu Kebede and Shure Demissie along with the Kenyan duo of Lucy Kabuu and 2014 World Half Marathon champion Gladys Cherono, who was making her debut at the distance.

Cherono has dangerous finishing speed over the shorter distances but it was Mergia who won a contest which ran right to the finish line, completing a hat-trick of Dubai titles by just one second.

“I told myself after having my daughter that I could win a marathon again,” she said. “We used the prize money from my first two wins in Dubai [2011 and 2012] to begin building a hotel back home, now we’ll be able to complete the job.”

In the 10km men’s event, victory went to Fikad Kibreab of Eritrea (29m:56s) with Habtom Welderufael - also from Eritrea - in second (29m:58s) and Morocco’s Ihya Ben Youssef in third (30m:18s). Ruqiya Alkhaja of the UAE took the women’s 10km title in 30m:47s, with Eritrea’s Rahma Abas second (37m:46s) and Latifa Essarokh of France in third (37m:47s).



The biggest event of its kind in the Middle East, the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon drew a mixture of spectators, including Olympians Lord Sebastian Coe and Haile Gebrselassie, HE Mattar Al Tayer (Vice Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council), HE Saeed Hareb (General Secretary of the Dubai Sports Council) and Ahmad Al Kamali (UAE Athletics Federation President and IAAF Member).

In addition to Standard Chartered as title sponsor, the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon is supported by the Dubai Sports Council, adidas, Dubai Eye 103.8FM, Sport 360, Masafi, Dubai Holding, Dubai Police and the RTA.

Press Release: Muhibah Walk: Youths of Malaysia To Walk For Unity



Kuala Lumpur, 8th December 2014– In January 2015, a group of vibrant youths are organising the Muhibah Walk to promote national unity. At 5pm on 17th January 2015 at Dataran PJ (Padang Timur), thousands of youths from all walks of life, irrespective of race or religious belief will take on the walk to celebrate the Malaysian spirit and to also promote a nation of faces without races.

Organised by the Movement, a youth wing under the NGO, Vision 2 Transform, the Muhibah walk is said to be in line with Malaysia’s vision to create a harmonious and united country.

“Muhibah walk is our visionary way to unite Malaysians of all races. It provides us a platform to bring Malaysians from all walks of life, young and old, to showcase that our hearts and souls connect with one another as Malaysians.

Our diversity is our strength and it is something we can share and embrace. On a personal level, a community level, and a national level, we want to showcase that we can break down all divides and truly be a nation of faces without races,” Janell Bani explained.

According to the organisers, before the walk, participants will gather at the field to sing the national anthem, “Negaraku”, as an expression of respect for sovereignty, national unity, pride and love for the nation before the campaign begins.

She further explained that after the walk, there will be a fun-filled carnival atmosphere with local and upcoming bands performing while families with children will be treated and thrilled with bouncy castles, face-painting and clowns to bring joy and colour to the event. Through the medium of music and arts, the program can allow us to embrace diversity, create a strong sense of community and promote unity. The event will end only at 11pm.

On the topic of national unity, Vice President of Vision 2 Transform, Cyrus Gomez says that, “People’s hearts are all the same. The colour of the skin may be different, but the colour of the heart is the same.” He emphasised that the event is a non-religious and non-political event, hoping that Malaysians from all walks of life can come together for a time of celebration.

“Youths can come together and strategize on this Muhibah Walk platform where they can connect, share and help to build the dreams and aspirations of one another. Muhibah Walk is so relevant because young people are going beyond race and religion to launch something significant to them that they always feel inside their hearts, something beyond. They have the energy to make it happen,” added Gomez.

The organising team have also come up with a promotional video with interviews from prominent leaders and celebrities of Malaysia, like Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, Dato’ Ambiga Sreenivasan and even Miss Universe Malaysia, Deborah Henry, to name a few. Their full interview can also be found in the official Facebook page.

Everyone is encouraged to join the Muhibah Walk. For all who are interested to come for the walk, they can visit:

Press Release: adidas Originals questions what it means to be a superstar in 2015



When the Superstar shoe was first launched by adidas back in 1969, the word ‘Superstar’ was unambiguous. Today, the word has been corrupted to the point of confusion.

So this year adidas Originals sets out to question what it means to be a superstar.

For entertainer and creative, Pharrell Williams, the meaning is clear; “It’s not about the number ofviews, likes or shares”.

While world-renowned footballer David Beckham decrees; “It’s not about trying to be the next big thing.”

“It’s not about having your name on a flag or a jersey”, echoes pro-basketball player Damian Lillard, while singer-songwriter Rita Ora states: “It’s not about following in someone else’s footsteps."

Whilst these ‘Superstars’ have all had different creative journeys, their original motivations from when they started out remain intact. Pharrell had a compelling need to create music. Beckham just wanted to be the best footballer he could be. They weren’t chasing fame; fame was a byproduct of their dedication and hard work.

Whether its 1969 or 2015 one thing is certain – there is no short cut to being a Superstar.

Watch the short film from adidas Originals, directed by Karim Huu Do, on what it means to be a Superstar in 2015 here:



Malaysia celebrates the 'Superstar' with the vintage pack which pays homage to the initial Superstar, with a premium leather execution - an off-white outsole and shell toe in classic colours of white with black / scarlet / navy / green stripes and retails at RM399.

Press Release: More than RM450,000 Raised at MDCC NYE Flood Relief Project



PETALING JAYA, January 5, 2015 – In keeping with the annual New Year’s Eve tradition, thousands of revellers gathered at the Mutiara Damansara Commercial Centre (MDCC), comprising the Curve, eCurve and IPC Shopping Centre, to usher in the new year. The gathering, however, was tinged with emotion as it was dedicated to the country’s flood victims.

In less than 36 hours, MDCC made a last minute change to the programme and turned it into a Flood Relief Project themed ‘Together We Care’ to raise funds and collect much-needed food and basic necessities for those affected by the disaster by working hand-in-hand with MERCY Malaysia and CIMB Foundation.

Press Release: OCM Celebrates Diamond Jubilee with Malaysian International Marathon 2015



Kuala Lumpur (8 January, 2015): After decades of bringing glory to the nation’s sporting industry since independence, the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) celebrate its 60th Diamond Jubilee Year Celebration this year by organising the Malaysian International Marathon (MIM) from May 23-24 in Penang.

Olympic Council Malaysia deputy president, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Mohamad Noor Rahim, who is also the organising chairman of MIM, said the main objective of having the run is to raise funds to support the 57 national sports associations affiliated to OCM and promote national unity.

“The primary objective of MIM is to raise funds for our national sports associations. There are many sports associations in dire need of funds to execute their programmes and this is where we hope to raise the money,” said Tan Sri Mohamad Noor at the launch of the Malaysian International Marathon today.

Tan Sri Mohamad Noor also disclosed that the idea of organising the marathon was mooted to the government in 2013 and was well received by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and Ministry of Works.



Tan Sri Mohamad Noor stated, Penang AAA, has been roped in as the Race Director into the organising committee to map out routes and all logistic requirements for the marathon due to their vast experience.

“OCM is extremely grateful to Mega Visual as well for coming on board and helping us in MIM. I am confident with their experience in handling such events; the MIM will truly be a success. They have the expertise and sound knowledge in organising marathons and other sporting events. There are other future plans to organise the run in various part of the country to continue to raise fund for the national sports association,” he added.

Taking a cue from Pierre de Coubertin’s statement, the founder of the modern Olympic Games: ‘The important thing in life is not to triumph but to compete…not victory but combat…not to have vanquished but to have fought well…not winning but taking part”, Tan Sri Mohammad Noor said MIM is held in line with the Olympic spirit to build a peaceful and better world for our future generation.

“MIM is indeed commendable as such commitment towards the colossal task of developing a society of fit and healthy Malaysians purely resonates with the government’s Fit Malaysia programme initiative recently,” added Tan Sri Mohamad.
