CEBU CITY, Philippines — The 20-man strong Go For Gold-Talisay Luigi Triathlon (TLTG) is ready for their first major race of the year, the National Age Group Triathlon set to unfold tomorrow, Sunday, February 13, 2022, in Subic Bay, Zambales.

The major triathlon event serves as the qualifying race for the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) in Hanoi Vietnam this May and is a talent identification race for the Philippine National Team.

With that in mind, Cebuano triathletes are gearing up for a tough race in their respective categories with the hopes of qualifying for the SEA Games.

Go For Gold-TLTG is bannered by 2019 SEA Games silver medalist Andrew Kim Remolino who will compete in the men’s standard elite along with Renz Wynn Corbin, and Charles Jeremiah Lipura.

In the women’s standard elite, Raven Faith Alcoseba, Moira Frances Erediano, and Karen Manayon are Cebu’s best bets.

The rest of Go For Gold-TLTG’s triathletes are Nicole Marie Del Rosario, Matthew Justine Hermosa, Jacob Kennedy Lipura, Jacob Clint Lipura, Alex Niño Silverio, Beboy Dolen, John Michael Lalimos, Henry Emmahnuel T. Go, Bobyn Wachter, Mr. Rolan Renz Alcoseba, Akio Habana, Mark Darell Urot, Carron Paulter Cañas, and Marielle Estreba.

According to the team’s head coach, Roland Remolino, they are well-prepared for the race despite the challenges the triathletes faced during training due to Typhoon Odette.

“Okay ra kaayo among preparasyon. Kaya kaayo namo nga mo daog,” said Remolino.

The standard elite distance features a 1.5-kilometer swim, 40k bike, and 10k run while the sprint distance has a 750m swim, 20k bike, and 5k run.    /rcg
