Their will of iron won a victory over the extremely hot weather. “Quitting is not a word in my dictionary” – said Ly with her winner t-shirt and medal for finishing the highest level of the marathon despite her leg injuries. “I told myself not to give up when I thought about all the people that supported me and the children that I would be able to save”.
