SEA Games-bound marathoner Mok Ying Ren was unveiled as Pocari Sweat's brand ambassador for 2014 on Friday.

The one-year cash and kind deal will see Pocari Sweat help fund part of Mok's training expenses and equipment as he trains for the Dec 11-22 Games, and in the long run, the 2016 Olympics.

Mok, who is tipped for gold at the Myanmar Games, will also hold running clinics as Pocari's Sweat ambassador in the lead up to the Pocari Sweat Run next year.

Said Mok, 25, who will also be running in Sunday's Standard Chartered Marathon: "I've always been on the lookout for a sponsorship which allows me to reach out on a grassroots level, and I believe the partnership with Pocari Sweat will help me achieve that."
