MLC School congratulates Marina Wong (Bjelja, 1996) on her incredible marathon achievements

MLC School Old Girl, elite athlete and mother of three young children, Marina Wong (Bjelja, 1996) is smashing marathon records across the globe.

Running a marathon is an extraordinary feat, requiring a tremendous amount of discipline, training, and mental toughness. Marina has shown all these qualities and more by so far crossing the finish line in 12 marathons.

A mother of three children, Marina has shown great dedication and perseverance in achieving such impressive accomplishments. Her hard work and commitment have paid off with ever-improving marathon results.

In 2021, Marina won the Brisbane Marathon Festival after taking the lead at 38kms. She not only broke her personal best by nine minutes, she also broke the race record that was set in 1997.

At the 2023 TCS London Marathon, Marina became the first woman to claim the Six Star medal in London. This medal honours runners who complete all six Major marathons: Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago, and New York City.

MLC School is proud of Marina for pushing herself to reach her goals. Her hard work, determination and resilience is an inspiration to us all.
