For the last seven years since Cebu has been the venue of the IronMan 70.3 Philippines, Cobonpue has been designing the finisher’s medals and trophies. 

The unveiling of Cobonpue’s medal and trophy designs has always been one of the highlights of the Half IronMan race. 

Cobonpue had balked at designing last year’s medals and trophies. However, he had decided to do it because it was IronMan’s 40th anniversary.

Teresa Marble Corp. is an acknowledged leader in the Philippine Marble industry and was established in 1976 in Luzon. Since then it has grown and   in 1986 it expanded its operations in Cebu./dbs
