*Special thanks to Coach Roselyn for providing snapshots of results and videos
Loquinto ties UAAP Record in Heats
Hanelyn Loquinto (FEU) was the quickest through the women’s heats on Tuesday winning the last of the three heats. Loquinto who is in her final year at the UAAP came into the competition with a best time of 12.33 from Thailand. The 2011 UAAP Champion timed 12.22s (+1.2m/s) to erase the six year old record of Sharon Jizmundo (FEU) by 1/100th of a second. Jenny Rosales (UE) defending UAAP champion in 12.34, established a new personal best of 12.25s winning the second heat. Palaro Champion Maureen Schrijvers (DLSU) won the opening heat in 12.76 to qualify fourth in the final.
Rosales defends title
It was a complete reversal to last UAAP when Loquinto was fastest out of the blocks, with Luville Dato-on and Jenny Rosales overwhelming her in the last 5 meters. This time Rosales was fastest out of the blocks and Loquinto began closing in on her in the last 20 meters, however Rosales had got a good enough start to hold her off. The rest of the field was well behind the first two placers with Mildrid three strides behind second.
After a valiant effort from Loquinto who threw everything she had into the final, it was 18 year old Jennyrose Rosales who would defend her title in 12.22 tieing the record Loquinto set in the heats. Loquinto took the silver with another good 12.29 time, and Mildrid tied her personal best to take the bronze in 12.68.
Palaro Champion Maureen Schrijvers was out of the medals fading to sixth place.
Two Pole Vault Records for EJ Obiena
EJ Obiena (ADMU) shattered the UAAP Record of Jerome Margallo of Adamson which was set at 4.30m 6 years ago. It was inevitable the record was going to go as EJ had already reset his own junior record to 4.31m. A bone breaking injury set the 17 year old back and side lined him from the Palaro and the National Games. Upon recovery he soon was able to break the Junior Record again with 4.40 and 4.45 at the Weekly Relays. Having now raised that mark up again to 4.50m it ties him on the mens all time list at 10 just behind former Fil-Heritage vaulter Jose Utzurun. The first year Ateneo student is a strong candidate for the UAAP Rookie of the year reward. He is also participating in the High Jump event.
It was a young cast with Palaro Record Holder Adel Valdecenas (DLSU). 20 took the silver with 4.20m and defending UAAP Bronze Medalist Joel Nasis, 19 (UP) bronze with 4.00m., with Run for Change supported athlete Janry Ubas, 18 (FEU) finishing fourth but also joining the four meter club. This puts the number of Vaulters over 4.00m at 12, tying last years record.
Mens 110 Hurdles: There is an Unso among us!
Defending Champion Patrick Unso who is coming off a hamstring injury was the fastest qualifier in the 110m Hurdles heats in 14.99 (-0.2). His brother Jose won the second heat in a Personal best of 15.12 (-0.2) improving on the 15.25 time he had ran to get the silver at the last UAAP. Emmanuel Delos Angeles (UST) also made a return to the UAAP with a personal best of 15.26, with Cid also qualifying in 15.27.
Jose again improved his personal best again winning the final in 14.84et (+0.3) a time which saw him rapidly advance to #6 on the all time list and 3rd on the seasonal rankings. His brother Pach holds the record and his father Renato is ranked 4th on the all time list (former record holder). (error reported 15.0x in previous report please disregard). Jose made the most of his final year in the UAAP beating his more well known Brother Pach who won the silver in 14.95. Jesson Ramil Cid (FEU) improved his PB to earn the bronze in 15.01. With former medalist Emmanuel Delos Angeles (UST) again improving to 15.20 but this time a well beaten fourth.
Mens 10k: Poliquit Just misses out
Rafael Poliquit (FEU) missed out on breaking the UAAP mens 10k record by an agonizing 4/100ths of a second. His winning time of 32:38.92 fell just short of the 32:38.88 mark set by Ben Alejandrino of UST six years ago. Poliquit who improved on his personal best of 32:44.87 when he finished sixth at the PNG continued his meteoric rise.
Richard Salano (UST) took the silver in 32:43.45 taking nearly a whole second off the time her registered at the PNG. Defending Champion Christopher Ulboc (FEU) ran faster than he did to win last year but this time it was only good enough for bronze. The three medalists who rank 4,5,6 on the 2012 rankings are all Run for Change supported athletes as was the fourth placer Roger Denolo (UST) who also improved his best time.
Mens 100m: Cid Claims 100m Title
The Mens 100m Heats saw some quick times. The First heat was won by Run for Change athlete Jesson Ramil Cid (FEU) in 10.90 +0.8, followed by Jose Unso (DLSU) who ran a personal best of 10.97. The second heat was won by 18 year old Jerwen Ebcas who ran a personal best of 11.13 +1.6.
In the Mens Final Cid was just .01 seconds off his personal best he ran in Thailand taking the mens 100m title in 10.89 +0.6 m/s. His time actually surpassed the UAAP ET Record with wind gauge used of 10.92 held by Romnick Herida in 2008. Jose Unso was second in 11.09, and Abraham Alzona (UE) bronze in 11.21.
Womens 100 Hurdles
Defending Champion Michelle Loterte (UST) was the fastest qualifier winning heat 2 in 15.30 (-0.2), .19 seconds off her personal best and .02 seconds faster than her winning time last year. She finished just ahead of the fast finishing Mildrid Salut (FEU) 15.47 who improved her personal best on the 15.53 she ran last UAAP to gain the silver.
The quickly improving teenager Leah Casilihan of DLSU who is mentored by national record holder Shyal Atilano won the third heat in 15.53 slashing .33 seconds off her personal best. The time puts Casilihan at #6 on the Junior all time lists, with Loterte currently in #4 spot.
19 year old Jee Ann Racoma (FEU) won heat 1 in 15.88. 2011 Silver medalist Aleah Gatmaitan of UE also qualified through with a time of 15.95.
In the final Michelle improved her personal best to 14.96, which saw her move to #3 on the all time junior lists. Mildrid Salut (FEU) was a very close second in 15.03 having knocked off half a second off her personal best this tournament and Leah Casilihan again improved her time for the bronze with 15.41. Gatmaitan was fourth in 15.84.
High Jump Womens
Joeann Bermudo equalled her personal best to take the women’s High Jump title with a 1.65m leap. Bermudo who was the bronze medalist last UAAP took the title in the absence of her more illustrious team mate Aprilen Laudencia the National Junior Record Holder who was the champion the last two UAAP. Palaro Record Holder and National Junior Champion Maureen Schrijvers (DLSU) was second in 1.60. Chairy Palermo (UST) who took the silver last UAAP was relegated to the Bronze with a 1.60m effort.
Run for Change athlete Christopher Ulboc (FEU) qualified fastest to the finals of the Mens 800m, improving his personal best in the early stages of the weekly relays from 1.55.9 to 1:55.30. Ulboc who is better known as a 3k Steeple Chase runner is showing fantastic form in the middle distance events this year after losing his 10k title yesterday earning the bronze. 18 year old rookie Elbren Neri (UST) the Uni Games Silver medalist ran 1:56.60 just behind Ulboc, (he ran 1:55.7 at Uni Games).
Mary Ann Dela Cruz (FEU) reversed the finishing order upgrading her place to Gold with a 6 second personal best of 4:46.98. Pushing her to #2 in the 2012 rankings. Defending Champion Carmen Dalyn (FEU) also ran fast in 4:47.63 but had to settle for silver this time. 18 year old Macrose Dichoso (UST) was third in 4:52.86. Last years bronze medalist Jilla Dela Rosa faded to fifth place.
Boys Records Tumble
Kyle Davidson Narido (UE) established a UAAP ET Record winning Heat 3 of the Boys 800m in 2:06.24, the time however is very far off the hand timed Record of Oscar Alvarez (UP) 2:03.00. For purposes of my set of UAAP Records. For 800m and up hand timed records have .14 added. So in order to surpass the old record a time of 2:03.14 or faster would have been required.
The third record to go was in the Boys Discus Matt Crespo (ADMU) threw the Discus 33.39m. I am still checking on the weight of the Discus because they seem to have three different records in the event for 1.5, 1.75 and 2kg discus weights respectively.
15 year old Jaime Mejia of UP won the boys 100m easily in 11.38 (-0.1). He then added the boys 110 Hurdle title in a slick 15.25.
Mary Alice Dela Cruz (UE) the UAAP bronze medalist won gold this time in 29:30.63, 19 year old Jenelyn Surdilla (UST) took the silver in 29:40.13 (#2 junior all time), and Marygene Dagasdas, 19 (UE) the bronze in 29:56.43 (#3 all time junior list). Dela Cruz took the honors after her team mate April Pedrozo of UE failed to finish the race and last uaap silver medalist Janice Marquez faded to 7th place.
Defending Champion Jessah Fernandez of UST improved her best mark from 31.64 to 34.54 to easily secure her title. Ahead of Vanessa Baguiwet (ADMU) 30.59m and Lei Ann Tan (FEU) who improved her best to 29.37m.

Day 2: Two down one to go: Rosales breaks De Vega 200M UAAP Record
Yesterday, UAAP Champion Jennyrose Rosales (UE) was the fastest qualifier in the heats of the 200m taking out heat 3 in 24.98et which is the electronic record of the UAAP.
Rosales broke the ET Record of 25.22 set by Chantal Issey Balani of DLSU. The 18 year old who is trained by Elma Muros, jumped from #9 to #6 on the all time junior lists.
2011 Champion Hanelyn Loquinto (FEU) who hasnt ran over 200m since last February won heat 1 in a personal best of 25.61. Her team mate Mildrid Salut also improved her best to 25.90. Rosales team mate Angco ran a PB of 25.98 to advance aswell to the finals.
In the finals Rosales was clearly on a different plain of existence to the other sprinters. Pulling 6 meters away from her closest challenger to clock 24.73et and hence erasing the UAAP Record of Lydia De Vega Mercado (24.5ht). The time also pushed her back to regain the #1 spot on the 2012 ranking list. It was also the fourth fastest time ever by a Junior Sprinter. The 18 year old Rosales still has another year left in the junior division. Loquinto improved her best again to get silver in 25.58et. Uni Games Champion Josie Malacad was third in 25.74et. Mildrid Salut (FEU) was fourth in 25.83et. Palaro Champion Mau Schrijvers of DLSU faded to seventh place.
After tying the UAAP 100m Record, and claiming sole ownership of the 200m Record can Rosales make it three for three and break the National 400m Record of 56.61 today. Her best time is 57.4 which is the Palaro Record from 2011.
PAK! Palabrica breaks Rosie Villarito’s Junior Record
One of the highlights of the second day was Evalyn Palbarica (FEU) 44.74m heave in the the Javelin which erased the 14 year old National Junior Record of 2009 SEA Games Champion Rosie Villarito. Palabrica who is trained by Roselyn Hamero has shown good improvement this year in the Javelin. Palabrica finished well ahead of defending champion Jenefer Penepona who could only manage 36.54m. The UAAP Record of 46.12m is held by Maricris Gammag.
Run for Change Athletes Dominate Day 2
Run For Change sponsored Cid who first came to prominence at the UAAP breaking the decathlon record added the 200m title to his long jump and 100m. Cid recorded a new personal best of 21.82 (which is unofficially the fastest electronic time with a wind gauge recorded at the UAAP). Jose Unso who led for the first 150m and was overtaken by the fast finishing Cid captured the silver in 22.13 and his brother Patrick who was the surprise winner last UAAP settled for bronze in 22.31.
Another Run for Change athlete Christopher Ulboc won the mens 5k after losing his UAAP title in 10k, he won in 15:31.12 ,tightly contested by his FEU team mate Rafael Poliquit silver in 15:33.34, Richard Salano (UST) took the bronze in 15:37.84. All three athletes are Run for Change supported. The highly sort after record of UST Ben Alejandrino remains untouched.
Jose Unso was the fastest in the mens heats in 22.05, his time surpassed the Electronic (wind gauge) record of Romnick Herida (FEU) 22.06 set in 2008. It was otherwise a rather slow set of results apart from Cid (FEU) 22.07 to take out heat 4 which only had two other people in it.
upcoming 15 year old Jaime Mejia won the boys 200m in 23.13 just .11s outside the meet record.
FEU Girls strike more golds
Josie Malacad won her third title in the UAAP 800m in 2:18.67. It was a clean sweep for the FEU Girls with Dela Cruz 2nd and Carmen 3rd. UST Silver medalist Jilla Dela Rosa finished fourth and out of the medals.
While on the mens side Ulboc of FEU won the mens 800m in 1:54.54, just a tad outside of the UAAP Record of Nelbert Ducusin 1:54.2. 18 year old Rookie Elbren Nebri of UST took silver in 1:55.27 (#5 junior all time lists).
Joeann Bermudo defended her UAAP Triple Jump title with 11.97m, another cleansweep with Dizon 11.70m silver, and Salut 11.69m bronze. UAAP Silver medalist Michelle Loterte (UST) registered no valid jumps.
John Quiambao continued a strong tradition of UP men hammer throw champions winning the hammer in 37.23m. Following the legacy paved by Karl Francisco and Miguel Yuzon.
Kyle Davison Narida broke his 3k (et) record with a run of 10:00.65
Cid claimed the long jump title in 6.87m in what was a very poor performed series of jumps all round in the event. Defending champion Gerald Layumas (DLSU) was well below his personal best and finished fourth with 6.30m.
UAAP Day 3: Rosales goes three for three destroys 400m UAAP Record, Results (included)
Jenny Rosales of UE shatters the Womens 400m UAAP Record of Ana Leah Hugo (56.78 set 15 years ago). Video by Coach Roselyn Hamero. Rosales was named MVP after breaking the 100 ,200,400m records. (100 equalled with Hanelyn Loquinto (FEU) during heats of UAAP).
Rosales time here was 56.03 (with splits of 26.5/29.5 for each 200m)
Jenny Rose Rosales again re-wrote the History Books of the UAAP with a dominating win in the Womens 400m capturing her third UAAP Record. It is a feat which is only shared in UAAP History by Ralph Waldy Soguilon the holder of the Mens 100,200,400m records.
The 18 year old Rosales stopped the clock at 56.03 leaving her opponents gasping in disbelief. Uni Games champion Josie Malacad (FEU) who has a personal best of 56.45 was some 10 meters behind with a time of 57.96, while Palaro and National Junior Champion Neslee Angco the training partner of Rosales captured the Bronze Medal in 58.30.
Rosales time shattered the previous record of 56.78 by Ana Leah Hugo of FEU whose time had stood for 15 years. Her performance solidified positioning in the powerful womens 4×400 squad eyeing the sea games spot. It was also the second fastest time as a Junior ever only behind the long standing National Junior Record record of Lydia De Vega 54.75 set 31 years ago (this mark is also the National Record). It is also the sixth fastest time ever by a Filipino women with De Vega, Ganosa, Milgar, Punelas and Griffey ranked ahead.
Carmen Dalyn looking like Womens MVP
Despite Rosales triple record standing. It looks like Dalyn Carmen may become the UAAP Womens Champion. As UAAP Rules state Individual medals are counted ahead of Relay Golds. Carmen would have tied golds in the womens 3ks, 5k, 10k with Jenny who won the 100,200,400. However as she also has individual medals in the 800 and 1500 this puts her ahead for the MVP award. Dalyn added the Steeple Chase gold in a new personal best of 11:43.04.
Meanwhile the FEU Womens team of Hanelyn Loquinto, Josie Malacad, Mildrid Salut and Avegail Dizon broke the UAAP Record of UST with a time of 47.91 the second fastest relay time of the year.
Ulboc leads a medal sweep for Run for Change
Christopher Ulboc (FEU) defended his UAAP title int he 3ks improving his season best to 9:25.07, Salano (UE) got the silver and Denolo (UST) the bronze both improving there personal bests.
Katrina Baron took the gold medal in the womens Pole Vault with 3.20m her performance was a huge personal best from the 2.80m she had previously registered at the Uni Games and when she formerly had the Junior Record. Her training partner Natasha Nalus was second with 3.10m improving on her junior record. The performances rank Baron and Nalus 5th and 7th on the all time lists for Filipina Pole Vaulters.
Jaime Mejia (UP) continued to add to his gold medal count taking the Record in the Boys 400m in a time of 51.27. Erasing the 51.48 mark of Patrick Unso set two years ago.
Meanwhile in the Mens 400m Jesson Ramil Cid completed the sprint treble in 49.24. Cid who will be a shoo in for the MVP award was outside his 48.05 personal best but did enough to hold off the fast finishing Gabriel Soriano. Soriano (UP) the younger brother of former UAAP sprint king Carlo Soriano was the surprise silver medalist clocking a big personal best of 49.45 after only managing 23 flat in the 200m final. Jose Unso (DLSU) also medalled in the 100,200,400 with the bronze in 49.59.
15 year old Joshua Patulad heaved the Javelin to a new mark of 54.29m which was good enough to rank on the mens Ranking List. His mark eclipsed the 21 year old Record of Illac Diaz of Ateneo.
Laurence Rose (DLSU) beat his team mate Palaro Record Holder Richie Cabanyog in the Shotput 12.95 to 12.53.
Unheralded Neil Borres (UST) was the surprise winner in the boys Triple Jump beating Uni Games Champion Janry Ubas (FEU) 14.37 to 14.30. Last years Champion Gerald Layumas (DLSU) was out of the medals in fourth.
FEU won the overall championship at the 75th UAAP. Both the men’s coached by Dario Del Rosas and women’s coached by Roselyn Hamero defended there titles. It was the ninth win in a row for the women’s team. FEU Mens won with 390 points from UST 264 and DLSU 249. In the Womens FEU won with 534 points from UE 311 and UST 254. UP High school won the boys division.
When the dust settled Jesson Ramil Cid again emerged as the MVP for the third year in a row. Cid won gold in the 100m,200m,400m, Long Jump and 4x100m relays.
UE Rookie Jenny Rose Rosales who broke the 100,200,400 records was the surprise winner after Jennismyle Mabunga of FEU beat her team mate Carmen Dalyn in the 5k. The third gold would have allowed Dalyn to defend her MVP title, as Rosales next set of medals were in relays, whereas Dalyn had individual silvers in other events. Rosales capped off a stunning UAAP teaming with Neslee Angco, Carmela Leonardo and Kristina Mae Santos to win the gold in the womens 4x400m relay.
The stunning surprise upset came in the Mens 4×400 when the DLSU quartet of Patrick Unso, Jose Unso, Jericho Ejercito and Timothy Kairuz toppled the FEU Juggernaut to win in 3:21.40. Jose later added the 400m Hurdles title to his 100 Hurdles crown in 53.59. Overpowering Cid who had beaten him in the 100/200/400m events and his own brother Patrick who ran 54.78 and 55.78.
Josie Malacad (FEU) won the 400 Hurdles title for the fourth time in a row with a time of 1:03.15. Albeit outside her personal best of 1:01.90 in Thailand. She just managed to hold off her team mate the impressive 16 year old Rookie Raiveneth Penarubia 1:03.96. UE Veteran Carmela Leonardo was third in 1:05.87.
Run for Change’s Janry Ubas, 18 took the Gold in the Mens High Jump with 1.95m equalling his personal best.
Dave Gumacal (UST) out dipped his more illustrious team mate Lambert Padua in the mens 5k walk winning 24:45.47 to 24:45.78.
In what was a weak long jump field as all the performances were more than a meter from the UAAP Record, Aldee Denuyo of UST improved her own best performance to emerge the champion over powering some of her much more fancied opponents with 5.13m.
Micah Sibayan (ADMU) heaved the discus to 37.96m to carry on Ateneo strong tradition of throwers.
High School Records Fall
Matt Crespo of Ateneo High School became the youngest member of the 40m+ club in the Hammer when he shattered his UAAP record of 33.23m last February with a heave of 41.18m. While Kyle Davidson ran 4:31.06 to break his own UAAP Boys 1500m Record. The UP Boys team of Mejia, Sangalang, Morales and Domingo clocked 3:36.09 to break the uaap electronic record.

- Some Final Results unofficial provided by my friend grass roots coach RV Alvarez who was officiating at the meet.
*Please note this meet had no wind gauge present and used hand timing. For official purposes hand times will be rounded up e.g. 10.61 is rounded upto 10.70 not down to 10.60 and that pattern applies for all these results.
Please note all these performances are hand timed, they did not use electronic timing or wind gauges.
Nalus sores into 3.00m+ club
The highlight of the second day of the University Games was 18 year old Natasha Nalus (UP) breaking her own National Junior record (2.95m set 18.08.12 during the weekly relays) and joining the 3.00m club. The leap tied here with SEA Games Long Jump Record Holder Marestella Torres, and former UAAP Standouts Nariza Rubio and Jesber Hualde who occupy the sixth to ninth places on the All Time lists.
It leads into a potentially exciting challenge for the National Junior Championship at the end of May with Fil-Heritage athlete Alyana Nicolas the same age as Nalus already clearing 3.20m this year. Albeit Alyana did not have a Philippine passport at that time so until that is obtained is not eligible for representation or the Philippine Record. Riezel Buenaventura has already surpassed the SEA Games standard of 3.90m. So it is upto Nalus and Nicolas to push each other to get the other seat on the plane to the SEA Games in Myanmar at the end of next year.
Coming in second was Nalus team mate former junior record holder Katrina Baron (2.90m) who is on the recovery from injury and equalled her season best of 2.80m.
Meanwhile in the Mens Pole Vault Adel Valdecanas got the better this time on count back against his long time rival National Junior Record Holder EJ Obiena after losing on count back the last time they competed a few weeks ago during the weekly relays. Again they both registered 4.20m.
Nalus, Baron, and Valdecanas are coached by Policeman and UP Assistant coach Mike Pelaez.
Cid Defends both titles
After qualifying fastest in the 400m with 49.2 easily, Cid ran down the fast starting Daniel Noval of CSB who won the 100 meter title the other day to defend his 200m title from last year albeit it was a little slower than the 21.7 he registered at Capiz. He also ran a seasons best of 53.5 to comfortably defend his title (it was just a little off the 53.1 record he had established at the UAAP in 2011). Cid recorded 48.8 secs in the final to improve on his third place finish in this event last year just outside the meet record of Christopher Demata (RTU).
Also seeing double was Cids school mate from FEU Josie Malacad, Malacad edged out 100m winner Schrijvers, in the 200m in a new personal best of 25.5 and then tidied up her title in the Womens 400m Hurdles in 1:03.1, Malacad also was very comfortable qualifying easiest fastest in the 400m with 58.5.
Malacad then sped away to easily win the 400m title in a time of 57.5. About .6s slower than the 57.04 she registered in Vietnam in June.
5K Favourites for UAAP
UAAP Champion Carmen Dalyn ran a new personal best in the Womens 5k in 19:03.3. Beating her best time of 19:03.55 she ran at the UAAP.
Meanwhile Rafael Poliquit (FEU) knocked nearly 6 secs off his personal best in the 5k, he had recorded 15:31.0 during the weekly relays. His time of 15:25.1 now puts him ahead in the rankings of his Run 4 Change team mates Richard Salano (UST) 15:29.5 and Christopher Ulboc 15:37.79 (pb of 15:24). And less than 4 secs away from breaking the UAAP Record of Ben Alejandrino set in 2006. It will be an exciting race in December with one of the three above breaking the record.

University Games Part 2: Event Reviews including Videos
Results and Photos (Day 1 and 2)
Womens 100m Heats and Finals
It was 17 year old 2012 Palaro Champion Mau Schrijvers who was the fastest in the heats in 12.4. The National Junior Silver medalist (12.68) in this event made it the third time to clock 12.4s which is also her personal best. 2008 Palaro Champion Ruffa Bargola (UP) was second fastest in 12.7 well off her personal best of 12.2 ran during the weekly relays. Unheralded Mae Angoring of RTU was the third fastest. Avegail Dizon fourth in the UAAP, 2011 National Junior Bronze Medalist Jacogoy, 2009-2010 Palaro Champion Michelle Loterte (UST) also made the final.
All eight runners lined up in the final but only the first six times were recorded in the results. It was Bargola of UP (black) who was fastest out from the blocks over the acceleration phase. The tall Schrivjers (white) and Dizon (yellow) took command during the top end phase of the race, with Mau having the best maintenance phase. Maureen Schrivjers added her second major title to her Palaro Crown with 12.5 albeit it was a bit slower than the final due to probably a wet track. Ruffa Bargola of UP who had qualified second ran the same time to get the silver her first medal in a while. Dizon improved over a tenth to snatch the bronze away from Mae Angoring who couldn’t cope with the rainy conditions and finished sixth. By the looks of the video it seems like Bargola was lucky to claim the silver as a photo finish would have seen Dizon clearly in front. The rest of the field was well out of it at least a body lengths behind third place. So probably not right the .1s difference between Bargola and Dizon.
Mens 100m Heats and Finals
According to Daniel Noval, their where three heats. Anfernee Lopena ran a a seasons best of 10.7ht to win his heat, while Noval won his heat in 10.7ht also. Lopena the 2011 Palaro 400m Champion from Bohol transferred to CSB from Holy Name University in Cebu after that school decided to axe the track and field team due to budget cuts. Lopena has had some very good runs over the shorter distances during the weekly relay. His team mate Noval on the other hand is a 2 time Palaro and 2 time NCAA Champion in the 100m. Also qualifying was NCAA JR Record Holder Jasper Tanhueco as third fastest, 2011 National Junior 200/400m Champion Noli Torres of Dasma also made the Final.
Only the first five athletes had times recorded in a damp final. Daniel Noval who obviously had kept something in reserve running the identical time of 10.62 ht, Noval led the race from start to finish pulling away in the maintenance phase of the race.. Lopena was a little slower this time in 10.9 and Jasper Tanhueco was third in 11 flat. It was gold and silver for Mighty Cebu. From the video it looks like Tanhueco leaning backwards and dipping early during the maintenance phase, enabled Lopena to pip him for the silver.
Womens 200m Final
At 120m it looked like Schrijvers (white) was destined for the sprint double. She was 5m clear of the field. However a strong surge saw Josie Malacad (yellow) run her down in the last 40m of the race.
Mens 200m Final
This was only ever a two man race. Noval (white) came off the bend the fastest with probably a little bit of a lead on Cid. However Cid who was bobbing his head tilted side to side over whelmed the little guy in a neck to neck battle all the way to the finish line.
Womens 400m Heats
National 400m Hurdles Champion Josie Malacad qualified easily fastest to the final of the Womens 400m. Malacad who was the only athlete to break 1m00.0 in the Heats recorded her personal best of 57.04et to take silver at the South Vietnam Open. The graceful striding Malacad took the womens 400m looking very comfortable. Perhaps a sign the 56.78 UAAP Record set by Ana Leah Hugo in 1997 could be gone next month. The runner of RTU was second in 59.7 and everyone else was 1m00+.
400M Mens Heats and Finals
Jesson Rami Cid was the fastest easily of the heat qualifiers. Cid the third fastest 400m man this year, will be lining up in the Decathlon and 4x400m next month in Thailand. Also qualifying to the final was UAAP Silver medalist *Bhardos and ‘Actor’ Jerico Ejercito.
The Final was an easy win for Cid who came off the bend 5 meters ahead and pulled further away from the field. Cid won in 48.8 just outside the games record of Christopher Demata last year. The next couple of runners across the line recorded 50s+
Womens 100m Hurdles
Michelle Loterte narrowly goes in as the favorite for the final. Loterte is only missing this title and the National Senior title from her resume. She was the Milo Little Olympic Champion 2008-2009, Palaro Champion 2010-2011 in this event, UAAP Champion 2012 and National Junior Champion. Her best time of 15.18et was established during the PNG in Dumaguete earlier this year. Loterte finished fourth in this final last year.
Her main opponent will be her team mate Banex2 who is the 2011 UAAP Champion with a personal best of 15.1 hand timed to win that title. This is the best form she has been in a for a while. Also in the final is Lea Casilihan who was the Junior silver medalist at the 2011 PNG in this event. Casilihan tied the time she had ran last Saturday during the weekly relay. Just outside her personal best again of 15.86 where she finished 5th in the UAAP Final. Last years winner Jaycel Casabuenca of Capiz who won the event last year in 15.4 did not compete.
In what could be described as one of the shocking defeats of the games under dog teenager Angela Eunice Balatibat the SCUAA Champion held off the countries best Hurdler Michelle Loterte in a scramble to the finish line ending her winning streak of over a year.
Balatibat seemed to cope better with the wet conditions improving half a second from her personal best to take the title. Loterte edged out hr team mate Viena Mae Banebane for silver and bronze. With the other three runners well out of the race. Everyone seemed to run half a second or more slower except for Balatibat in this race. It seemed as if Michelle who was leading the field by about half a bodies width stumbled on the wet track clearing the seventh hurdle and had to slow down before the eight hurdle to regain her ryhthm which saw Casilihan and Balatibat draw level. Casilihan was taken out of the three way race by the ninth hurdle after hitting it. Balaitbat was able to out sprint Michelle at the end and threw her hands in the air going over the line.
1500M Women Final
UAAP Champion Dalyn Carmen continued her fine form from the Weekly Relays a few days ago to again beat team mate and UAAP Silver Medalist Mary Ann Dela Cruz. This time the girls improved from 4.58 to 4.53 and 4.57 to 4.55. Carmen best time of 4.51.23 was established during the last UAAP. Unheralded Jelyn Duran took the calps of some better established juniors to take Bronze. Barit? (Bakit) the 2011 Palaro Champion and Vanessa De Valle the 2011 Palaro Silver medalist who have both broken 5 mins before in this event both failed to medal.
Mens 1500m Finals
Christopher Ulboc in his debut over 1500m this year ran the second fastest time of 2012 (4:00.9) . Ulboc best time of 3:58.6 was established during the weekly relays last year. ‘Considerable beef’ was added to the four names so far ranked for 2012 with the top three in this race adding themselves to that list.
WOMENS LONG JUMP FINAL
Not very good overall results in the Long Jump. A few years ago Dato-on won this event in 5.81m. Dolloso and Bermudo did much better in the Triple Jump.
MENS LONG JUMP FINAL
Some very impressive results in the Mens Long Jump. 2012 has been a good year now with nine male long jumpers leaping over 7.00m and lifting the standard of this event in the Philippines! wait until the ranking lists come out. Unheralded Mark Fabro was the surprise winner with a leap of 7.06m, coached by former National Decathlete Arnold Villarube. NCAA Bronze medalist Mark Harry Diones improved his best leap from 6.89 to 7.06m for silver. 18 year old Janry Ubas went from 6.85 to 7.01, and Melbert Diones who was fourth was just 3cm off his personal best.
*7.00m is now the new standard to making the Mens Ranking List in 2013.
WOMEN’S TRIPLE JUMP FINAL
Hometown Girl Felyn Dolloso (DLSU) returned home to win the Girls Triple Jump in 12.28m. Felyn who broke the National Junior Record during the 2012 PNG with a 12.55m leap, first came to prominence breaking the Palaro Record in 2010 with a 12.35m leap and also won the 2011 UAAP. She missed the 2012 UAAP due to academic reasons.
Also leaping above 12m was second place Joean Bermudo (FEU) the UAAP Champion this year whose 12.03m leap was just 2cm shy off her career best performance at the UAAP. The entire field was slightly off or a lot of their best performances considering the bad weather conditions where it rained heavily.
