In 2XU Race, she rose to occasion with her time. Rameshon, 53, her coach, had actually ran together with Mariviv. Both did 1hr 28min 13sec. It was athlete and coach working together. The pace was the same. It was a 4min 20sec pace per kilometre.

In StanChart Marathon, held in Singapore, last year, she came in first for under 20 girls. Mariviv ran in Hong Kong Marathon 2018 and did 41min 30sec for 10km. She came in 2nd overall for women under 20.
In 2XU Half – Marathon, she was expected to do a 1hr 40min as she did not have any form of experience of running very long distance, in races. Flexifitness athletes, also, came to support her for the fine performance.

She has been interviewed by me and I will be putting out the second part of the website post soon.
