Head to Head Best Athletes in 2012: Guidelines how it works?
This is a power ranking comparing the performances of all the best athletes in Philippines in Track and Field. By doing so it draws a comparison between athletes performances in different events.
The athlete Rank, is the overall ranking of the athlete. The athletes name is listed with family name first and then first name. Also under name is the relay event. The event column lists the athletes event. In some cases an athlete might appear twice if they have another event being scaled/compared. Athletes names appear in bold for there best event. An athlete is only being ranked based on the primary event. 2012 Perf = the athletes best performance in year 2012.
SG is the SEA Games Bronze Medal Performance Standard, or bronze medal performance from 2011 which is the basis of this list. % of last SG Bronze is how the athlete is scaled on this list. The % shows how close they are to making the standard. Some athletes as you notice have surpassed this standard already so are over 100%. Notes show if the athlete medal last sea games, and what medal standard status they currently hold. It also notes down the status of athletes if they are overseas based.
The list also intends to list coaches attached to the athlete once that data becomes available.
Please also note for distance events they have been calculated in total seconds for the event e.g. 1 minute 40 seconds is 60s (1 min) + 40s = 100s. Because the spreadsheet would not allow conversion of minutes and second performances into %.
For track events the formula is SG/2012 Perf x 100 = % off last sg bronze
For field events the formula is 2012 Perf/SG x 100 = % off last sg bronze
Analysis of Male Athletes.
In 2012 seven athletes were over 100% in the rankings. Fil-Heritage Pole Vaulter Caleb Monticalvo who has just secured a phi passport and was ranked second in South East Asia in his event heads the list with 107, Decathlete Jesson Ramil Cid who was two points off the decathlon national record is ranked second with 105, and Fil-Heritage Pole Vaulter Julio Alorro who has submitted dual citizenship details to PATAFA was ranked third with 104 aswell as being Second in South East Asia in his event. SEA Games Silver medalists Henry Dagmil and Archand Bagsit were tied at 101 Long Jump and 400m. Manual Lasangue who has the sea games silver standard also had 101. Followed by Veteran Julius Sermona in the 10k. Adding to the list of exceeding the 100% was the 4×4 Mens Relay team.
The Relay Team with Bagsit (101), Cid (99), Alejan (99), Nierras (99) and Bano (99 towards the 400 Hurdles) was also highly ranked individually. SEA Games Silver Medalist Arniel Ferrera was very close to qualifying in the Hammer (99). Rene Herrera and Mervin Guarte have performed better this year in there secondary events Herrera in the 5k rather than 3ks and Guarte in the 800 rather than the 1500. Also new on the list was Wenlie Maulas.
(Please click to enlarge), all in all 45 names appeared on these Rankings. This next list rates athletes 95-98%. 95% towards SEA Games target was used as the threshold benchmark. One thing evident was the number of emerging sprinters between 95-98%. Also three SEA Games medalists from the Last SEA Games appeared in the 95-98 bracket Marayag, Fresnido and Guarte. All in all men’s Field seems to be relatively safe for now, with the need to develop new talents once some of the older team members decide to retire in a few years time. Mens Track also seems relatively stable again with the need to develop new talents in the longer distances once the old guard decides to retire. However its evident that there is a new generation of distance runners coming through.
Analysis of Female Athletes
Veteran field events Marestella Torres (106), Rosie Villarito (104) and Loralie Sermona (101), alongside veteran Heptathlete Narcisca Atienza (101) were the top 4. Riezel Buenaventura tied the SEA Games standard. Behind them was SEA Games Bronze medalist Katherine Khay Santos on 99%.
The list demonstrates as well the relative success of a womens 4×4 whose time of 3:48.63 albeit 3s off the SEA Games Standard had the fastest time since 1993. Josie (98) , Krizia (97) , Keizel (97), Lorna (96) were all ranked in the 400. Jennyrose was the other member of the 4×4 in Thailand rather than Krizia. Jenny obviously ran alot better in the relay than she has in an individual 400m this year.
14 year old Fil-Heritage athlete Kyla Richardson was ranked for both the 100 (98) and 200 (97). Grace Delos Santos and Banayag were ranked in the 10k. Also Loquinto and Jennyrose scraped in for the 100m.
The urgency in womens is more so than in Mens, as only 17 Filipina athletes exceeded 95% towards the standards, whereas 45 Filipino Men. It can be argued however that alot of the Mens were in the same event which shows more depth in certain event types. However Womens Track last SEA Games had 0 Medals in events from 100m to Marathon, including Relays and Hurdles and 0 women in 2012 reach the qualification standard.
*The next article will discuss ways and suggestions to improve the output of Women’s Track.
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.

Article by Pirie Enzo
Natasha (Nash) Marie Nalus continued her dominating streak of performances at the Weekly Relays. The 18-year old incoming freshman at the University of the Philippines broke the National Junior Record with a leap of 2.95m in Week 5 of the weekly relays at Pasig (18th Aug).
Nalus broke the old mark of 2.90m set by her team-mate and training partner Katrina Baron. Both Baron and Nalus are currently trained by pole vault coach Michael Pelaez, along with another previous junior record holder Alexandra Morrica Smith (DLSU).
Nalus is a graduate of St Pauls College Pasig. Nash was originally a member of the Philippine Pole Vault Club with coach Emerson Obiena.
At the start of the year Nalus best was only 2.50m from the Uni Games last year in Bacolod and then 2.60m during the weekly relays. Nalus leapt 2.80m during week three of the weekly relays to move from sixth on the all time junior list and was voted ‘Athlete of the Week’ with her performance.
Not only does Nalus now go in as the favorite to win the UAAP title in November, one of many new faces to emerge in a ‘changing of the guard’ (as defending champions now senior athletes are now very busy with studies or have graduated).
Nalus also now has a chance to become the first junior to go beyond the 3.00m mark, born in 1994 Nalus has this year and next year to achieve that feat. The Pole Vault has come along way as 14 years ago the National Senior Record was still only 2.80m.
Mainly due to the efforts of coaches such as Vicente Villauneva, Emerson Obiena and Michael Pelaez the standard of pole vaulting but in particular the relatively new event of Women’s Pole Vaulting has shot up dramatically. We will examine the history of the women’s junior record.
History of the Philippines National Junior Women’s Record
The History of the Junior record in the women’s just like the men’s has been a very controversial subject. However I will firstly note unlike the boys record, in the women’s fil-heritage athlete Deborah Samson (3.81m, 2000) definitely did not have Filipino Passport, hence eligibility at the time of the record but later went onto set the senior record once she obtained a passport.
The Junior record starts with are first serious womens pole vaulter Anna Natad who was coached by Mr. Villauneva (a veteran pole vaulter himself from the age of bamboo poles, who these days is the chief caretaker of the PATAFA equipment shed). Natad from DLSU University in 1998 leapt 2.80m during the weekly relays which was the Junior and Senior record at that time.
The record was then equalled by Jam Valenton of Ateneo coached by Emerson Obiena, ten years later in 2008 at the weekly relays also. Contrary to my previous article on pinoymiler titled ‘Smith claims sole ownership of the junior record’ and also in the following article ‘A tale of two pole vaulters‘
The marks of Dawn Javellena (Ateneo, 2005) 2.70m, Riezel Buenaventura (FEU, 2005) 2.70m, and Alex Smith (DLSU) 2.70m and 2.76m 2010 (After careful research assisted by AA Statiscian Heinrech Hubeling) are not considered ever being national records as Natad 2.80m was not exceeded or equalled between 1998 and 2008. Valenton leap of 2.80m equalled that so she co-shared the record from 2008 to 2010.
The saga then continues in this article i wrote on pinoymiler titled ‘A tale of two pole vaulters‘
“The email was brought to the attention of PATAFA but was not acted in on and in essence ignored. Smith aware of the higher marks of 2.80m reported in the past set on a campaign to claim sole ownership of the National Junior Record.
The drama continued as Smith seemed to falter from her record-breaking mark during the UAAP, weekly relays and National Games. She eventually managed to break through at the University Games in Capiz in mid October with a leap of 2.87m which unofficially claimed full ownership of the junior record.
However PATAFA national coach Roselyn Hamero informed me that due to the fact the national games was not an event sanctioned by PATAFA and arguably the officials are not accredited the record is very unlikely to be ratified by PATAFA.
In the case of track events that are understandable as there are no wind gauge and hand timing. However field events are very hard to stuff up measurements in comparison to sprint events were more time is available to ensure accuracy.
Smith new mark of 2.87 record regardless lasted less than a week. Her training partner Kat Baron (1992 also) of UP Diliman leapt an impressive 2.90m, a massive break through performance on October 29 at the Weekly relays to claim what ,might be sole ownership of the Junior Record. The Question now is can Smith dig deep and take the record back at the weekly relay finals this weekend which is arguably the last meet and last chance of the year. Regardless 2011 has been a win win situation for the MPF (Mike Pelaez Family).”
It is going to be a very interesting UAAP this year with National Junior Record Holder Natasha Nalus (2.95m) lining up against former record holders UP school mate Katrina Baron (2.90m) and Alexandra Smith of DLSU (2.87m). The three training partners are part of the MPF trainin group (Mike Pelaez Family).
Below is the Alltime List for Junior Womens Pole Vault in the Philippines
|1||3.81m||Deborah Samson||17/10/1981||Los Angeles||2000|
|2||2.95m||Natasha Marie Nalus||1994||Pasig||18/8/2012|
|4||2.87m||Alexandra Smith||1992||Roxas City||2011|
|10||2.60m||Emily Jean Obiena||28/2/1998||Pasig||/2/2012|
*NB. Natasha Nalus mark is the JR Record on this list.
