Cebuana multisport athlete Erediano to compete in Malaysia triathlon
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Cebuana multisport athlete Moira Frances Gabrielle Erediano is now in Desaru, Malaysia as part of the Philippine Team sent by the Triathlon Association of the Philippines (TRAP) for the Southeast Asian Triathlon Association (SEATA) Race Desaru this weekend.
The 17-year-old Cebuana is also joined by one of the country’s top triathletes, Nikko Huelgas, in their bid to represent the Philippines in this international triathlon race.
Also joining them are Katrina Salazar and Juan Francisco Baniqued, while on the sidelines are their coaches in George Vilog and Anthony Lozada.
Erediano, a 12th grader from the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC), will be vying in the junior elite sprint category.
The race features a fast-paced 750-meter swim, 20k bike, and 5k run. Erediano and the rest of the Philippine team will compete against triathletes from other Southeast Asian countries.
This will be Erediano’s second international race after she placed second in last August’s TriFactor Dong Nai-Vietnam Duathlon event held in Dong Nai, Vietnam.
Prior to that, Erediano shone in the duathlon competition of the Tagudin, Ilocos Sur Triathlon/Duathlon held in the municipality of Tagudin, Ilocos Sur in July.
Also in July, Erediano topped the 15-19 years old category of the Sun Life 5150 race in Panglao Island, Bohol.
Her biggest win this year was during the Dumaguete City Triathlon last April where she finished as the fastest overall female in the race.
