    Leading Seaman Sanath Bandara of the Sri Lanka Navy has won the 05th place in the Gold Coast 100 kilometer marathon held in Australia recently. Determination and perseverance, two core values which his naval training has taught him, have guided him to the finish line of the long run to victory.
