3 years ago, in the 2015 edition, the Costa Rican had also achieved victory with a time of 2 hours 45 minutes and 56 seconds. That is to say, this time she dropped the time she had achieved in her previous victory in just over 5 minutes, which was the 1st time she competed in the United States.

Méndez -36 years old- is seeking a better record that allows her to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
