- Criteria Top 10
The Philippines 4×100 Team of Santos, Olarita, Rosales and Loquinto lead the season with 47.84. The next best performance was by the FEU Womens team in 47.91 which broke the UAAP Record. 8 teams ran below 49 seconds. The criteria for the relays is top 10 performances.
It was however the more impressive 4×400 lineup of Olarita, Rosales, Malacad and Pedrina whose time of 3:48.63 was the quickest time since 1993 by Filipina’s. Just 3.6s away from the SEA Games qualification standard.

5k Final Report
The highlight of the season in this event was a thrilling blanket finish with Baguio’s Floredeliza Donos edging out Mary Grace Delos Santos at the National Championships in a time of 17.44.84 to 17.44.85. With the much more experienced Jhoann Banayag in third. Unlike the 800 and 1500 these events are still dominated by athletes who are over the age of 25. Teenage Fil-Heritage athlete Jullie Wollrath also had a time not too far off the seniors which indicates good performances to come on the track from the 16 year old.
The cut off criteria remains at 19:30 for 2013.
Philippines 2012 Womens 10k to Marathon, 3k Steeples Track and Road Final Ranking List
Womens 10k to Marathon
In 2005 Mercidita Manipol who holds the Philippine 5k Record at 16:40.81 won the Gold Medal at the SEA Games in the 10k. Manipol then is now 31-year old Mercidita Fetalvero and still occasionally competes in road races. The 10k Record Holder is Cristabel Martes (34m40.3) now an employee of Runrio. Martes is the SEA Games Marathon champion in 2001 and 2005.
With the popularity of road running rising in the Philippines with more opting to run 5k and 10k on the road rather than the track there is a lot of potential for the possible development of the Womens 10k event. Not just from that source but a lot of Triathletes are very good 10k runners as well due to the overload of having to run two additional events.
Again Banayag originally from Davao was the countries fastest women in the 10k after losing her 5k crown. She improved her best time to place her #5 on the all time list. Zamboanga‘s Delos Santos also ran a personal best to place #6 on the all time list. Last years National Junior Record Holder Jessa Mangsat of Baguio did not break 40 minutes at the National Games this year.
The standard for 2012 was 43 min 30. But this is now lowered for 2013 to 43m00.
Womens 16.8k to Marathon
Please email any additions or corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org
Delos Santos once again dominated the Milo Marathon, with Jhoann Banayag second. Cebuana Mary Joy Tabal also had a very productive season.
3K Steeple Chase
The UAAP Champion Carmen Dalyn leads the list. In fact the top three times at the UAAP where faster than the National Games Champion Flordeliza Donos. The top three times are below the record. Contrary to previous announcements Carmen’s time 11:43.04 is actually not a new UAAP Record as Jean Palencia of USTwho holds the National Record actually ran 11:24.48 at the 2009 edition, second place Frejilyn Roncales also of UST clocked 11:41.73 which is the second fastest time in UAAP History.
It is my hope that this data will help the organization.

This is the first event compiled for the 2012 Ranking Lists. These will be released every week to two weeks.
At the end of 2012 14-year old Fil Heritage athlete Kyla Richardson was the quickest with a time 12.00et. Her time is the quickest ever by a 14 year old Filipina with performances well ahead of what National Record Holder Lydia De Vega Mercado did at the same age.
National Champion Katherine Khay Santos came next with 12.17et to win the PNG. Tied at 12.22 were Jenny Rose Rosales and Hanelyn Loquinto who both broke the UAAP Record. Loquinto ran her time in the heats while Rosales won the final with the same clocking.
While Rosales has the potential to develop into a great SEA or Asian Class Sprinter, Richardson who improved her performance from 12.69 to 12.00 from age 13 to 14 has the potential to be world class one day in fact her performance was well under the 12.60 required time to qualify for the World Youth Champs in Ukraine next year.
The list also features Palarong Pambansa Champion Maureen Emily Schrijers and National PRISAA Champion Lorna Olarita.
The Ranking Lists for 2012 have now been finalized. For 2013 the standards for inclusion on the list will be increased to 12.70et/12.5ht. As per 2012 athletes will not be included in the list if they have represented another country within the last five years. It will also be noted whether Philippine Heritage athletes included have the necessary passport or duel citizenship documentation.
Altogether 25 athletes made the womens 100m ranking lists this year compared to 18 last year. Notable is the number of new young athletes under the age of 20 running below 12.6ht aswell 13 in total.

(24th Dec) December has been a very mixed month in terms of views. With the year nearly over a lot of changes and revisions will be made to Pinoyathletics structure which you will find out about shortly. The first half of the month due to the UAAP had alot of site traffic. We were greatly helped by the results being provided as well as videos of events in a timely manner by our contacts on the ground.
We have an anticipated 15,000+ total views predicted for this month which would be good progress however site traffic seems to be slowing right now due to the Christmas break.
- Weekly record from Dec 3-9 of 4465 views (UAAP week)
- Weekly view average record Dec 3-9 of 638 views (UAAP week)

Call for New Writers
By Pirie Enzo
As I am based in Australia, Airnel Abarra will be arranging meetings with applicant authors, if outside Manila we can arrange a skype meeting.
Writers who are interested in writing articles for us please express intentions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
.Firstly I would like to say when myself and Airnel Abarra founded ‘pinoyathletics’ which later became ‘pinoyathletics.com’ we had intended for this blog later website to become a website not just for the athletic community but also shared by the athletic community in terms of articles and opinions. For the last few months I had been producing the majority of the articles for this site. However this was a time consuming and lengthy process.
We did however gain a lot of contributing authors, quite notably US Coach Adarian Barr, NCAA Athlete Allyson Bodenbach and more recently Run4Change Founder Eric Pasion. While we did get a few offers by guest writers to write articles our niche is Firmly Track and Field news and anything relating to the sport. One of the goals of pinoyathletics.com is to produce quality articles by a variety of different authors.
It is now our mission over the next few months to meet with and recruit new authors for our website. This is a good initiative which I am in full support of as it will add variety to our website and boost the quality content of our articles.
(Oct 28) October was a more productive month for pinoyathletics.com. With October not yet over we have already exceeded are monthly record with over 12,000 views as of today. As stated above we are looking at expanding are content by adding new guest authors to our team. Already as mentioned above we had articles by three guest authors. Airnel is also back in action after defending and completing his thesis.
Some Notable mile stones for October include
- Monthly record views over 12,000 and counting
- Weekly record 3,434 probably exceeded at the end of today
- Three days with over 700 daily visits
- Toe Drag by Adarian Barr first article to receive over 1000 views
- Highest daily average views this week of 535
- 16 articles/pages with over 300 views.
The Site did very well, in what was deemed a very quiet month in terms of Philippines Athletics to improve with about 500 more monthly visits. Pretty much even to the number of visits we had in August. This was good considering August was the month of the Olympic Games. Things are expected to pickup with a lot of major calendar meets starting including the Uni Games Oct 24-27 in Bacolod, around 30 athletes being sent to Thailand Nov 2-5, Weekly Relay Finals and UAAP in early December.
No updated news has been placed on the Philippine Nationals originally scheduled for second week of May then postponed to September and now being held in December. Who knows how this is even going to be feasible with in such close proximity to UAAP and Christmas?
Some notable milestones in September include
- A Record ’790′ views in a day on September 16. ’3142′ views in Week three with an average of 449 daily views.
- A lot of redundant article with low readership have been merged into larger more detailed articles. We continued to add to our legend section with articles on Elma Muros, Josephine de la Vina, and on the late Inocencia Solis, and the late Nanette Lusterio.
- We added articles on Fil-Heritage athletes such as Alyana Nichols and others.
- The result section was greatly updated with more archived results, and we continued with our Athlete of the week with full scaled reports on each round of the Weekly Relays.
- We also added a complete listing of Filipino National Records
- A project with the revision of the UAAP and NCAA records is underway.
- Several articles very helpful articles such as ‘Toe Drag for sprinters’ and ‘shoulder rotation’ where contributed by guest writers.
As you may have all noticed the blog is now registered as a domain. pinoyathletics is now pinoyathletics.com. Don’t fear however as you can still use pinoyathletics.wordpress.com if you have links as this will automatically redirect to pinoyathletics.com.
We had the buildup to the Olympic Games, The Olympic Games themselves, fortunately we had a huge back log of local athletics to fill as well as coverage of the Weekly Relays with are athlete of the week polls. Readers enjoyed reading about Rene Herrera, Marestella Torres, and Nash Nalus this month in local athletics.
Recently we have added a Legends of Track and Field section, currently we have articles on four legends in place. Olympic bronze medalists Simon Toribio and Miguel White too wonderfully written articles by fellow blogger Joboy Quintos (Hurdler49) and two articles I have compiled from various sources on Lydia De Vega Mercado and Mona Sulaiman. Stay tuned as next week we will write a feature on the late sprinter Enrique Bautista a superstar of Philippine Athletics during the 1960s.
As well as that I have also put in are archives sections SEA Games results in full for Athletics from 1977 to 1989 (excluding 1987).
I would like to take the time to thank as of recently Ignacio Dee (who was part of the research team which assisted the previous PATAFA Statistician the late Col. Constantino), Jad Adrian Washif (SEA Statistician) who is sending me photo copies of a very rare book of stats from 1974, and the Gintong Aloy Athletes for inviting me to there group as of recently. Also a special thank you to anyone who has contributed to the blogger and the readers.
