    Nearly eight years after retiring from professional competition, 'Barefoot Queen' Pham Thi Binh is back and winning again.

    The 33-year-old marathon runner triumphed in the VnExpress Marathon Quy Nhon 2022 in June, VnExpress Marathon Nha Trang 2022 in August and Binh Duong International Marathon last month.

    In September, she also finished second in the 42km race at the Techcombank Hanoi Marathon.

    "After I stopped competing professionally, I saw the running movement in Vietnam growing more. That motivated me to train again and register for marathon events. I have endurance due to my long professional career, so it's not too difficult to run again," Binh told Việt Nam News.

    Fans were excited by the intriguing image of the 42km women's champion in the above events. She reached the finish line with her bare feet, leaving her competitors behind.

    I guess if her feet are bare on the bottom, she's running barefoot! I mean that's the part of the foot that's doing the contact work, right?

    I was wondering about that too, what those were on her feet in the one pic. But the other one she's in full glory!
