Leading scientists in Singapore still struggling to explain this strange phenomenon.

Leading sports scientists, together with health and military researchers in Singapore, have stumbled upon a startling discovery that currently remains as unsolvable as the Big Bang and AIDS.

They found out that the majority of those thousands of participants who took part in the Sundown Marathon Singapore 2017 are those very same men who complain they cannot pass their annual 2.4km IPPT run.

Chao Keng Kia, a leading scientist trained in human physiological studies and sports sciences, said: “Every time Singapore got marathon or some long distance race, you see tens of thousands of these men damn garang, any time of the day can put on their gear and have a go at it, 10km or 20km, no problem.”

“But when it comes time to take IPPT, they falter, say cannot pass, RT not fair, NS for locals, jobs for foreigners.”

This mystery is so deep, runners who took part in the 42km run but frequently fail their IPPT, also cannot explain why this is the case.

Mei Li You, a Singaporean man who has been going for IPPT remedial training for the last few years, said: “I also don’t know why I cannot pass my 2.4km IPPT.”

“I can go through school, find a job, get skills certifications, court a girl to become my wife, afford to drive, eat fancy meals, rear children, train for this kind of pointless long distance races, but somehow, I cannot run 2.4km IPPT run.”

“I think it’s a mental challenge.”

Leading sports scientists, together with health and military researchers in Singapore, have stumbled upon a startling discovery that currently remains as unsolvable as the Big Bang and AIDS.

They found out that the majority of those thousands of participants who are taking part to run the Puma Night Run Singapore 2016 are those very same men who complain they cannot pass their annual 2.4km IPPT run.

This mystery is so deep, runners who took part in the 10km run but frequently fail their IPPT, also cannot explain why this is the case.

Thousands of Singaporean men, who believe it is good to be sporty and exercise is good for health, have come out to celebrate the sporting achievements of Olympic Gold medallist Joseph Schooling.

However, leading physiological scientists in Singapore have discovered that these are the exact same people who cannot pass their annual IPPT.

Chao Keng Kia, a leading scientist in the sports sciences, said: “When Singaporean men see other people exercise, they get very happy and excited on behalf of the person exercising.”

“But when it comes time to take IPPT, they falter, say cannot pass, RT not fair, NS for locals, jobs for foreigners.”

This mystery is so deep, Singaporean men who cheered for Joseph Schooling but frequently fail their IPPT, also cannot explain why this is the case.

“I can go through school, find a job, get skills certifications, court a girl to become my wife, afford to drive, eat fancy meals, rear children, train for half-marathon races, but somehow, I cannot pass 2.4km IPPT run.”

More NSmen fail Gardens By The Bus Stop obstacle after changes to IPPT

More NSmen fail Gardens By The Bus Stop obstacle after changes to IPPT

Obstacle put up by Mindef as a means to test if skills acquired in National Service is useful.

bus-stop-bush-singapore

More NSmen are failing to clear standard obstacles in real life this year after changes to the IPPT came into effect in July 2014.

Every year, SAF and Mindef will set up obstacle courses in environments regular people will encounter everyday in Singapore. This is to test if skills acquired while undergoing National Service will finally come in handy in everyday life.

This year, a garden bush is built around a bus stop in Ulu Pandan, code named Gardens By The Bus Stop, to see if NSmen who had gone through NS will be able to negotiate the terrain safely to get on the bus.

However, the results have not been encouraging.

Supreme General of the Army, Jin Seow Onn, said at a press conference: “Almost 80 percent of Singaporean men failed to clear this hurdle, while another three died while doing so in the last two weeks.”

A similar obstacle built for a bus stop was put up two years ago to test the agility of NSmen to manoeuvre around it.

Located at Newton, this barricaded bus stop was supposed to test the low wall climbing skills of NSmen. Some 70 percent managed to clear it, while two men died trying in a period of two weeks.

Supreme General Jin said: “It is not surprising that we are performing worse today compared to a few years ago.”

“The new three-station IPPT is making NSmen weak. Even my grandmother managed to climb over at least 10 times when she went marketing the last two weeks.”

Leading scientists in Singapore still struggling to explain this strange phenomenon.

Leading sports scientists and health and military researchers in Singapore have made a startling discovery that currently remains as unsolvable as the Big Bang and ALS.

They found out that the majority of those 46,000 participants who took part to run the SAFRA Singapore Bay Run and Army Half Marathon at Marina Bay on Aug. 31 are those very same men who complain they cannot pass their annual 2.4km IPPT run.

Chao Keng Kia, a leading scientist trained in human physiological studies and sports sciences, said: “Every time Singapore got marathon or some long distance race, you see tens of thousands of these men damn garang, morning wake up very early, put on their gear and have a go at it, 10 or 20km, no problem.”

“But when it comes time to take IPPT, they falter, say cannot pass, RT not fair, NS for locals, jobs for foreigners.”

This mystery is so deep, runners who took part in the half marathon but frequently fail their IPPT, also cannot explain why this is the case.

Mei Li You, a Singaporean man who has been going for IPPT remedial training for the last few years, said: “I also don’t know why I cannot pass my 2.4km IPPT.”

Mindef slowly easing pressure on Singaporean men, moving towards a fully female armed forces.

Saying that the changes to make the IPPT into a three-station walk in the park is one of the ways of easing pressure on Singaporean men to serve the country, Mindef said on July 26, 2014, that the next few enhancements to National Service policy will see Singapore training a fully-female armed forces to defend the country.

Supreme General of the Army, Jin Seow Onn, said: “After years of pressure for feminist organisation, Aware, we have no choice but to make things more equal.”

“The next phase of our policy is to remove men from active service so that Singapore will have a women-only armed forces.”

Supreme General Jin also said that changes to these recent IPPT to include sit-ups, push-ups and 2.4km run is to make the force more female-friendly.

The next step is to give out more CPF awards and more attractive maternity benefits for the women and their husbands, who would no longer need to serve NS or reservist, who just need to maintain active duty in the bedroom.

This is to allow NSmen to train for one activity to improve overall fitness.

ippt-army

In a bid to make IPPT simpler for NSmen to attempt and pass, the Singapore Armed Forces has announced the most radical change to it since the 1980s when the fitness test first tormented local men.

The SAF said it will be combining all five separate stations into one station only, which will make it easier for servicemen to train for and pass.

Currently, out of the 300,000 or more soldiers in Singapore, about 50 percent manage to pass the IPPT on any given year.

In the new one station IPPT, servicemen are required to choose any one of the following:

– Do standing board jump for 2.4 km

– Do pull ups and climb vertically for 2.4 km

– Shuttle run for 2.4 km

– Do sit ups continuously for 12 minutes (passing time for 2.4 km run)

Supreme General of the Army, Jin Seow Onn, said: “This will help to streamline the efforts of our soldiers and allow them to make the best of their physical training.”

“No, no, this is not tekkan. Not as if we ask them to start counting from minus five or minus 10.”

They said they expected nothing less from the mainstream broadsheet.

Singaporeans from all walks of life and various IPPT CAT level said they are not surprised The Straits Times is spreading misinformation.

This after ST reported earlier today that the SAF will be making changes to the IPPT by April next year.

It was reported that some of the changes include replacing the 2.4km run with 3.2km and phasing out Standing Board Jump because everyone go gym train upper body only.

However, the SAF came out just now to clarify, saying any changes to the IPPT stems from the over active imagination of the reporter.

One Singaporean, who has been repeatedly deceived by ST over the years, said: “The moment I hear any news is from ST, I won’t believe.”

“Now they make this kind of boo boo, then later they will keh siao all act blur as if nothing happened and this mistake was never made and no reporter will get into trouble or even provide an apology or explanation.”

“Typical one.”
