My first Gold medal in the International Full Marathon in 1989 in Malaysia Ma’s Penang International Marathon.

The best memory is that this win was not an easy triumph…..I overpowered a Guinness Book of record holder, @Leslee Watson of Britain known to be the most stylish Marathoner having done more than 140 full marathons with a Personal Best time of 2:39 min (on my right hand)

That time I had only 6 marathons with my PB (Personal best of 02:49 min in 42.2 km).

Look at my tongue….the Winner’s trophy was too heavy and I was only 46 kg weight!
