CEBU CITY, Philippines—After months of training, triathletes from the Talisay Luigi Triathlon Group (TLTG)- Go For Gold Philippines are now ready for the much-awaited 2021 National Duathlon Trials.

The competition will be held at the Clark Air Base in Mabalacat, Pampanga on Sunday, December 12, 2021. 

The team’s head coach, Roland Remolino, told CDN Digital that even with the pandemic, the team continued to train for the major race, which serves as qualifiers for the national training pool for the 2022 Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, Vietnam. 

“Sukad-sukad, wala man jud mi mo undang ug training. Naningkamot ra mi nga makuha namo ang duwa bisan naay pandemic,” said Remolino.

(Ever since, we never stopped training. We tried our best to be able to train even with the pandemic ongoing.)

The team will send 10 triathletes headed by Remolino’s son, Andrew Kim, the 2019 SEA Games triathlon silver medalist, along with rising triathlon prospect Raven Faith Alcoseba, Moira Frances Erediano,

Mathew Justine Hermosa, Jacob Clint Lipura, Jacob Kennedy Lipura, Lourd Cedric Mascariñas, Nicole Marie del Rosario, Rueren Hardrt Pañibon, and Alex Niño Silverio.

Remolino, Alcoseba, Del Rosario, Pañibon and Mascariñas will compete in the standard division, which features a 10-kilometer run, 40k bike, and 5k run. 

The rest of the team members will compete in the sprint distance featuring a 5k run, 20k bike, and 2.5k run. 

“Dili lang jud mo kumpyansa kay ang mga kontra sa lumba nag training pud baya. Maong magkita na lang mi ani sa race day nila,” added Remolino. 

(We shouldn’t be complacent because the opponents also trained hard. SO let’s see on race day how it goes.)

The team showed in recent races that it is ready.

In fact, Alcoseba is coming off a win in the grueling 100-kilometer cycling event of the Cross Cebu 600 women’s division last November. 

Meanwhile, Remolino vied in the  2021 Asia Triathlon Championships in Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima, Japan in April.

The rest of the team also joined several local races in Cebu in preparation for this important event.
