"I have been running in marathons for four years and this is my biggest achievement. I hope it does not end here and there is more to come." Key to achieving more success is to get a permanent coach with Muhaizar mostly training on his own at the 21st Commando Regiment Sungai Udang Camp in Melaka. Just prior to the Sea Games, Muhaizar travelled to Baguio, Philippines to train with national distance coach Samuel Kipsang Rono for 25 days. "It made a lot difference training at altitude and if I had more time to train with Rono there I know I could have done better," said Muhaizar. "I tried to keep pace with Soh and Agus but they have more experience than me and I eventually fell back. I know Soh trains at altitude in Arizona กระเป๋าเป้ใบเล็ก which made all the difference today." Muhaizar's medal was the first won by a Malaysian in the 42.195km race since P. Solaimuthu's bronze in 1973. Muhaizar and Huong Leong were also the first Malaysian entries in the marathon event since 2007 when Shaharuddin Hashim finished eighth in Korat. The Malaysian duo were in medal contention after Thailand's 2015 silver medallist Boonthung Srisung, who had been running in third place, dropped out of the race around the 30km mark with a hamstring injury. "I did not at first know Boonthung had dropped out but I found out later I become more determined," said Muhaizar, a three-time winner of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon local category.
