The Penang Bridge International Marathon had recently ended, and to hype things up, the organiser has given our 2 Proton Sagas as lucky draw prizes.

Nonetheless, in the case of one winner, he was able to ‘snatch’ the grand prize from 13 other winners who did not show themselves after their names were called out.

According to a report by China Press, the lucky 55-year-old man named Zeng Wen Long (transliteration) was the 14th person to be drawn for the Proton Saga announced by Yang di-Pertua Negeri of Penang, Tun Dato’ Seri Utama Ahmad Fuzi bin Abdul Razak.

As the 13 winners ahead of him did not show up to collect the mock keys to the car, Zeng became the final winner of the lucky draw’s Grand Prize.

When the host called out his name, he happily ran to the stage to claim the car.

It was also reported that this is Zeng’s first time taking part in the 10km Penang Bridge International Marathon and has won the grand prize!

“It is just good timing since my wife is about to get her driver’s license, so I will give this car to her when she succeeds,” he told the reporters during an interview.

Zeng said he still could not believe it and felt extremely lucky to have won himself a new car, especially considering that he was the 14th person called. He also encouraged others to participate in the marathon and support the state’s initiative.

There’s another winner!

Meanwhile, the other Proton Saga was won by another lucky winner named Chai Soon Lee (transliteration).

Chai is a passionate marathon runner and he had participated in the Penang Bridge marathons for many years.

During the interview, Chai told the press that he took part in the Half Marathon this year, which required participants to run the long distance of 21km.

Chai said that he had never thought about winning a lucky draw in all his years of joining the marathon and was shocked to hear that he won the Grand Prize.

Nonetheless, he said the prize came just in time as he had recently sold his old car away.

Congratulations to these two lucky winners, and all the participants who completed the Penang Bridge International Marathon!
