CEBU CITY, Philippines — Talisay Luigi Triathlon Group – Go for Gold (TLTG-GFG) head coach Roland “Andoy” Remolino is happy with the performance of his athletes in the recently held 2019 Gyeongju ASTC Triathlon Asian Championship in South Korea.

However, in his assessement, he isn’t satisfied with the whole performance as it was lacking about 15 percent.

“Kuwang jud tungod sa race course ug sa climate didto, cguro kuwang mga 15 percent,” said Remolino, but he added that “pero happy ra gihapon, mga 85 percent lipay, 15% additional sa training.”

(It was really lacking because of the race course and the climate, perhaps it was lacking 15 percent but I’m still 85 percent happy, the other 15 percent will be for additional training.) 

The Talisay City, Cebu-based group was led by Remolino’s son, 19-year-old Andrew Kim Remolino, who ensured his slot to represent the Philippines in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games by being the first Filipino to cross the finish line in 17th place overall with a time of one hour, 59 minutes and 08 seconds in the Elite category.
