On September 27, 2014, Langkawi, Malaysia will play host to what is touted to be the third toughest Ironman race among the different edition across the globe. One hundred and twenty four of our best are flying to Langkawi to go head to head with the best in the world to tough it out in the swim, bike and run legs of Ironman Langkawi.

The Philippine contingent held a Press Conference last Thursday at Skippy’s Bar and Grill in BGC to announce their participation and to let the media know how much the sport has grown in such a short span of time.

At 124 members, this is the biggest contingent yet by the Philippines to an Ironman race. The triathletes who attended the press conference vary in their profiles and athletic abilities.

Friends from the media from periodicals to TV reporters to bloggers graced the event to hear from the Pinoy contingent about the sport, their training regimen and goals in relation to the race in Malaysia.

Who says life is over for an athlete once he/she retires from amateur competition?

As the 2014 ASIAN Games are currently ongoing in Incheon, South Korea, our former amateurs now called the Masters are still making a name for themselves and are continuing to bring glory to the Philippines by competing at the Asia Masters Athletics Championships being held at Kitakami City, Japan.

I had the honor last Tuesday to meet them as they were presented to the media in a send-off party held at 100 Miles Cafe in BGC.

As of this writing, our Masters have already garnered medals in  their respective sports and age groups are in contention to garner more. Let’s cheer them on as they bring honor to our country.

Mabuhay!

Asia Masters Athletics Championships:

Path of Athletic Immortality

The exploits of well-celebrated sports icons usually leave a lasting memory to a lot of people, mostly sports fans. But when these sports heroes go into retirement, most of the time nothing is heard of them after. Often, the assumption is, after relinquishing their god-like sporting prowess they become inactive normal individuals, succumbing to the ravages of sedentary lifestyle. They become mere mortals, so to speak.

Javelin Throw - Danilo Fresnido

On September 19, this belief will be dispelled as the 19-strong Philippine team composed of mainly former national athletes will battle it out with the rest of Asia in the 18th Asia Masters Athletics Championships in Kitakami City, Japan.
