Edison Chen disqualified from marathon

Edison Chen disqualified from marathon



Hong Kong 'bad boy' Edison Chen has been working hard to rebuild his image by participating in charity events.

But whenever he tried to do something good, it came out so wrong.

Just as he was praised for taking part in a marathon in Hong Kong, he was disqualified from the event.

On Feb 5, the 31-year-old completed the 42.195km run within four hours and helped to raise HK$2mil (RM784,900) for charity but was disqualified less than two weeks later.



Edison's number was supposed to be 'A5716' but he was not happy with it and swapped it with a participant whose number was 'A5654'.

This has confused the organiser while tabulating the results.

After numerous complaints from other runners, the organiser decided to disqualify the star from the event.

"Because there were complaints. It's not fair to the other participants, so we disqualified him," said a spokesperson, identified only as Ms Li.

"We do not recognise his result and will not issue any certificate to him."

Edison's misconduct this time has reportedly angered the event sponsor Nike, which asked for compensation.

But the sportswear and equipment supplier denied the speculations, saying they and Edison are on good terms.

It was reported that Nike has invested a lot in engaging personal trainee and masseur for the actor-singer during his five-month training for the event.

Re: Edison Chen disqualified from marathon

his luck hasn't turned yet, i guess.
or he is destined to be a "bad guy". maybe that's who he is. so accept it and quit trying to be "good"

Nothing better to do to switch the number with other contestant.

Seems like building back a good image has gone back to square one.

Re: Edison Chen disqualified from marathon

It is hard to rebuild his image. It has been tarnished badly since his saga some time back

Edison Chen comes clean about marathon scandal

Edison Chen comes clean about marathon scandal
Posted: 23 February 2012 1317 hrs


HONG KONG: Hong Kong singer-actor Edison Chen revealed during a publicity event on Wednesday, the true reason behind his decision to swap tags with another runner at a recent charity marathon, reported Hong Kong media.

It was the number seven.

Chen, who recently had his marathon results voided by the event's organising committee because of this tag swapping incident, explained that he switched his tag with his friend because his own tag had the number 5716.

The star believed that seven was his unlucky number and exchanged his tag for his friend's, which had the number 5654, but maintained he did not swap out his own electronic chip – which records the time taken for the wearer to complete the marathon.

This isn't the first time Chen had tried to avoid the number seven.

"My phone number and my Los Angeles home address had a seven, so I changed my phone number and moved to a new address," said Chen, before going on to admit that he was rather superstitious.

"I find that my luck has become quite good after avoiding the number seven."

Ironically, this time around, it was his decision to avoid the number seven that got Chen into trouble and attracted a lot of negative publicity, which indirectly resulted in the voiding of his results.

However, Chen said he is no stranger to controversy and remains unperturbed by the incident.

"If this happened five or six years ago, I would have been very angry but now, I have my supporters … I know what I am doing," said Chen.
