Known to have a strong mindset, George was actually diagnosed with dengue fever back in 2015 without him knowing it!
In preparation for an upcoming overseas military exercise, a routine blood test was done on a Friday morning. The blood sample was sent to the lab shortly, but the results could only be made known on the following Monday morning. In between, George completed the Sundown 21.1km Half Marathon on that very Saturday night!
But because he did not display any symptoms of fever at all, George was not hospitalised nor did he need to receive any medical treatments.
His mind was too strong for his body to display any signs of dengue fever, thus allowing him to achieve good timing for his Half Marathon.
