Singapore yesterday hosted a leg of the inaugural Puma 24-hour Trainathon series, joining Beijing, Jakarta and Tokyo.

Challenging participants to endure training for a full day, the event saw teams overcome a series of individual and cooperative challenges that put their strength and endurance to the test.

The competition commenced at noon on Saturday, with the top three teams proceeding to the finals after four gruelling elimination rounds that spanned 23 hours.

The three teams took on the final challenges that tested their determination and resilience, with the quartet of Benedict Pang, Damien Sim, Douglas Soh and Lynnette Koh emerging victorious.

They took home the grand prize of $1,000 cash, $1,000 worth of Puma merchandise and a paid trip to Hong Kong to compete in the Trainathon finale later this month. Both runners-up walked away with $800 worth of Puma merchandise.
