3 Cebuanos clinch titles in Tri-Factor in Clark Pampanga
CEBU CITY, Philippines – Young Cebuano members of the Talisay Luigi Triathlon Group (TLTG)/Go For Gold Philippines continue to make Cebu proud after bagging three titles in the inaugural edition of the Tri-Factor Run-Bike-Run held Sunday, March 31, in Clark Pampanga.
Andrew Kim Remolino clinched the title in the Male Sprint Distance category after posting a time of one hour, two minutes and three seconds (1:02:03).
The Male Sprint category requires participants to start off with a 5-kilometer run, 20 kilometers of biking and end with a 2.5 kilometer run.
Remolino’s teammates, Matthew Justine Hermosa and Moira Frances Erediano, swept the male and female titles in the Super Sprint category.
Hermosa crossed the finish line with a time of 25:20 while Erediano clocked 27:17.
The Super Sprint had the athletes running 2.5 kilometers then transitioning to 10 kilometers of biking before ending the race with another 2.5 kilometers of running.
Other members of the TLTG/Go For Gold Philippines also had strong finishes after entering the top 3 in their respective categories. Nicole del Rosario placed third in the female Sprint with a time of 1:15:16 while Earol Belonguil finished second in the male Super Sprint, trailing Hermosa by just nine seconds. Hermosa and Belonguil came from a successful outing in last weekend’s Alaska Ironkids 2019 in Davao City wherein Belonguil bagged the boys 13-14 title while Hermosa was at second./dcb
