Cebuano triathletes to compete in Mt. Mayon Triathlon
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Cebuano elite triathletes will strut their wares in the Mt. Mayon Triathlon on Sunday, August 14, 2022 in Legazpi City, Albay.
The Cebuano contingent will comprise of the Go For Gold triathlon team headed by Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) double-silver medalist in triathlon Andrew Kim Remolino along with 31st SEA Games bronze medalist Raven Faith Alcoseba.
Joining them are junior elite triathletes in Renz Wynn Corbin, Charles Jeremiah Lipura, Karen Andrea Manayon, and Nicole Marie del Rosario.
This was confirmed by Remolino’s father and trainer, Roland Remolino to CDN Digital.
Andrew Kim and Alcoseba will compete in the elite category which features a 1.5-kilometer swim, 40k bike, and 10k run.
Meanwhile, Corbin, Lipura, Manayon, and Del Rosario will compete in their respective age groups.
This group of triathletes showcased their winning form during the Go For Gold Sprint race last July 10, 2022 in Panglao Island, Bohol. It was during the twin triathlon races of Sunrise Events Inc. which also featured the Sun Life 5150 race.
Remolino and Alcoseba were the fastest triathletes in the race, while Corbin, Lipura, Manayon, and Del Rosario made it to the top 10 of the race.

In the male category, Remolino goes up against fellow elite triathletes in Lance Burgos, Irienold Reig, Juan Francis Baniqued, Iñaki Emil Lorbes, and Richard Anson Navo.
