2012 Philippines Womens Final Ranking List 200m / 400m (merged) (rev 3)
This is the second event compiled for the 2012 Ranking Lists. It is my hope that this data will help the organization.These will be released every week to two weeks.
Final Report: Rosales vs Richardson
14-year old Fil Heritage athlete Kyla Richardson tops the 2012 Ranking List with a time of 24.12et. However UAAP Record Holder Jennyrose Rosales is the quickest local sprinter in the 200m with 24.73et. The much anticipated show down between 14 year old Richardson and 18 year old Rosales will be the head line event at the 2013 PNG. In what will probably go down as the most fiercely contested event in the history of the Junior Womens division in the History of the Philippine National Championships when Rosales and Richardson will square off against each other in the 100 and 200m Dash.
The Changing Season leader
Rosales led from January until March with her UAAP time of 25.33. It was then surpassed by Fil-Heritage Krizia Leah Apelar who clocked 25.21 and then 25.04 to win the open 200m at the National Games (best time is 24.93) at the end of May. Richardson then clocked 24.12 in June and was season leader until December.
Other Champions on List
Palaro Champion Maureen Emily Schrivjers , PRISAA Champion Lorna Olarita, and Uni Games Champion Josie Malacad are also represented on this list. The Criteria cut off for this list in 2012 is 26.54et/26.3ht in 2013 this has now been lowered to 25.90et/25.6ht in order to make the lists in 2013. Athletes will not be included on the Ranking List if they have represented another country in the last five years.
400m Ranking List
Jenny Rosales took the Season Lead, UAAP Record and recorded the second fastest ever time by a Filipina Junior. Her time of 56.03 was the 6th fastest of all time only behind De Vega, Ganosa, Milgar, Punelas and Griffey. De Vega record of 54.75 is the senior and junior national record.

Upcoming Lorna Olarita of(UPSF) also had considerable improvements this year going from 58.78 to 57.51.
As predicted four of the five athletes listed for a possiblehave performed well this year. The has not had a medal in the 4×400 since 1993, however a united team in could see the end of a 20 year drought and perhaps security for the next two sea games at least.

The Legacy in this event may continue with several younger athletes such as Fil Heritage athletes Kayla Richardson as well as national Junior and Palaro Champion Neslee Angco have all featured on the ranking list.
The Criteria for 2013 now moves from 60.0 to 59.5 for inclusion.
It is my hope that this data will help the organization.
