Heartiest congratulations to NUBS Malaysia alumnus Alex Goh Shaw Peng (MBA, 2003) who became the first Malaysian to complete the top 10 World Marathons as certified by Runners World, and as recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records.
Alex, aged 58, recently returned from completing the 2019 Boston Marathon, which earned him the coveted Six Star Finisher medal for completing the six Abbott World Marathon Majors (a series consisting of six of the largest and most reknowned marathons in the world - held in Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York City).
Thank you, Alex, for not only making us and Malaysia proud, but also for showing us what one can achieve through perseverance, tenacity and self-discipline!
Alex's achievement has been covered in various news channels, including articles in newspaper The Star, Running Malaysia, and Chinese-language newspaper Sin Chew Daily.
