Another prime example of the butchering of the countries sports program.
The recent senates interference in the matters of the UAAP is not just negatively impacting the lives of individual collegiate athletes but also our sports program as a whole. The Senate recently wanted to change the rule for UAAP athletes to two year residency meaning athletes transferring schools would not be able to participate for their new school and would have two years were they were not eligible for UAAP competition.
- Under the new rule, if a UAAP high school athlete wants to transfer to another UAAP institution in tertiary level, he or she must sit out for two years before being allowed to play. The athlete’s playing year, however, starts after the two-year residency. A regular athlete in the UAAP has five playing years (Manila Times)
- Athletes transferring between schools require two year residency
- Foreign players two year residency
Such a prolonged period away from sport is more than likely to discourage athletes from continuing with sport or effect their future academic choices if the school they choose does not have a suitable course for a future career. The NCAA system in the US currently has in place a one year residency rule. So if a more well established and prestigious league finds one year adequate why cant the UAAP?
However I am ruling in favor of a no residency rule which will give more rights to the athletes. The disadvantage of this however is it could lead to rampant poaching of athletes by other schools.
Senator Pia Cayetano in an open letter called the change in the rule against “the constitutional mandate to promote sports”
“…The 2-year residency that is currently applied to transferring college students, as well as any residency rule for high school students, deny athletes of their rights to develop their full potential,” said Cayetano in a statement posted on mydailyrace.com.
Cayetano cited Section 19, Article 14, of the 1987 Constitution, which states that:
“(1) The State shall promote physical education and encourage sports programs, league competitions, and amateur sports, including training for international competitions, to foster self-discipline, teamwork, and excellence for the development of a healthy and alert citizenry.”
In an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Em Fernandez, the head of the league’s amendements committee, said the reason for such change: “Most of the universities want to protect their high school programs.”
Cayetano, meanwhile, is against “any kind of residency rule for graduating high school students.”
“For transferring college students, the 1 year residency rule will suffice. Anything more than that is injustice to an athlete.”
“In the USA, transferring college athletes have a 1-year residency rest before they can play for their new school – only 1 year, and it doesn’t apply to high school students who choose to go to a different college,” Cayetano explained, also saying the one-year rule of the US-NCAA is aimed at helping students acclimatize to new school and academics.
“A student-athlete’s choice of university is influenced not only by athletics, but also by academics, campus life, and personal situation , and the 2-year residency encumbers their freedom of choice,” Cayetano added.

Minimal Participation and a Wasted Opportunity for NCR Schools
The National PRISAA Athletics kicked off in Lingayen two days ago. Although several schools are PRISAA members participation from existing members is now very minimal which means the depth of talent at this meet is rather limited.
Siliman school has boycotted the PRISAA as the University Association allegedly owes millions of pesos in reimbursements to the University dating back and before the 2009 Games which were held in Dumaguete bank rolled by the school.
Meanwhile the NCR schools have boycotted the PRISAA due to what they see as an unfair election system with the incumbent PRISAA President being in charge for well over a decade. This however for the NCR Athletes is not a good move as the PRISAA would have served as one of the only meets to help build up for the National Games with no all comers meets available as to date.
Few Ground Breaking Performances
The main standout so far has been Joan Caido of Baguio, the 18 year old national junior champion improved his best time to 48.8. Caido will square off at the PNG against UAAP silver medalist Gab Soriano (UP) (49.45) and 2011 Palaro Champion CSB Anfernee Lopena (49.8) at the PNG to try and defend his title.
Most Winning athletes have either maintained or had declining performances. This could be partly due to the lack of competition from other schools in this meet. The Central Visayas Team is leading the competition in points.
“I am happy I was able to win despite strong wind,” said the 20-year old Baluran, a fourth year student at University of Cebu where she is taking up Education. “Despite leg and feet ache, I still won.”

ASEAN Uni Games Day 1, Palabrica Javelin Jr Record again! and Malacad bronze in 400m
It was a lot smaller contingent to the UAAP than in previous years. This was due to the fact that several athletes who were approached stated they were unavailable due to school and other commitments which was always going to be difficult with the UAAP being moved less than a whole week before the ASEAN Uni Games. None the less Misael Perez and the other coaches did a good job assembling the best UAAP athletes who had made themselves available.

Palabrica Breaks her Jr Record Again in the Javelin closes in on SEA Games qualification
Evalyn Palabrica in her first international meet for Philippines improved on her own Phi JR Javelin Record she set at the UAAP. The previoous mark of 44.64m was established by Rosie Villarito way back in 1998. Palabrica representing FEU threw the Javelin 44.73m. Today at the ASEAN Uni Games she improved that mark to 45.43m capturing the silver medal behind SEA Games Champion Natta Nachan of Thailand who won the gold with 45.79m. It puts her #8 on the All time list for Philippines in this event.
Nachan was the same athlete who had a surprise win over Rosie Villarito at the SEA Games then registering 48.80m. The bench mark for Palabrica will be the SEA games bronze standard of 46.73m which is well within reach for the 18 year old.
the other Filipino entry Evalyn Palabrica finished last in the event with 33.98m.
A Bronze for Josie
Josie Malacad added another international medal to her collection when she placed third in the 400m in 56.92. Nguyen Thi Thuy of Vietnam won the gold in 55.18 well clear of her team mate Nguyen Thi Huyen who clocked 56.34 for the silver.
Jesson Ramil Cid finished outside of the medals in the Mens 400m after qualifying fastest he ran 49.29 a second off his personal best of 48.05 which he ran in Thailand which would have won the race. The race was won in 48.16 by Mohammed Arif Zulhimi Alet of Malaysia in 48.16, he just held off his team mate Kannatshan Subraniam who clocked 48.21, and Jakkrit Pattasai of Thailand 48.47.
18 year old Janry Ubas finished fifth in 14.21m in the Triple Jump outside his personal best of 14.64m from the PNG.
‘Foo’ for thought in Mens 100m and SEA Games Champion Unani beaten in womens 100m

Same with the Womens no female entry from the Philippines it was however an interest turn around with Malaysian Nurul Sarah Kadir edging out Thai Pimpika Kannikom 12.14 and 12.15 . With the reigning SEA Games Champion Sarah Unani of Indonesia a well beaten third in 12.34 well off the time of 11.69 she won the last SEA Games with.
ASEAN Uni Games Day 2: Unso Breaks the Phi Record in the Hurdles
Patrick Unso improved on his own national record in the 110m Hurdles with a credible silver medal on Day 2 of the ASEAN University Games. His time of 14.49s improved on his time of 14.58 he ran last year to finish sixth in the SEA Games final. He was second behind Malaysia Jamil who won in 14.37. The time edges Unso closer to the 14.14 Bronze qualification criteria (from 2011).
18 year old Freshman Elbren Neri did enough to win the bronze in 1:57.00 although the performance was well outside his personal best.
Christopher Ulboc like wise got bronze in the 3k steeples in 9:31.48, some 7 seconds from his personal best. While Roger Denolo finished 8th of 10.
Adding to the medal haul was Michelle Loterte who timed 15.10 for bronze, Michelle’s second best performance in this event was slightly from her winning time of 14.96 at the UAAP. The Hurdles was won by Raja Azhar of Malaysia in 14.22 from Rohimayati of Indonesia 14.79.

UAAP Champion Joeann Bermudo was well out of the medals with an 11.73m jump and Michelle Loterete 11.43m was fifth also outside her personal best.
Mary Ann Dela Cruz was well out of the medals in the 800m finishing fourth in 2:25.00. The winner was Do Thi Thao of Vietnam in 2:12.44.
END OF RELEASE
UAAP Day 1 Report: Rosales Wins, Loquinto ties UAAP Record Womens 100m, Obiena breaks PV Records (merged)
*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).

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.

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.
After reviewing, reporting and making various adjustments/ammendments to the National, National Junior, UAAP and NCAA records. The later two still ongoing projects due to limited availability of result data from previous years. I will now be tackling the Palaro Records set by the Department of Education.
I will first be dealing with the Tertiary level Mens Records. It is important to note a few things here.
The BPISAA (Bureau of Public Interschoolastic Athletics Association) a previous incarnation of Department of Education started there Games in 1948 and this became the Palarong Pambansa in 1974. Due to the even scarce availability of data for these early meets I only have a snippet from a secondary source for the 1960 Games and due to the different nature of the games (was mainly an open and collegiate meet even at times serving as a National Championship meet). I will exclude the BPISAA results and begin with the Palaro Records in 1974. Although when i am next in the Philippines I would like to pursue a compilation of BPISAA results which may prove to be a bit of a treasure hunt.
Also what needs to be noted the Palarong Pambansa from 1984 to 1987 was suspended due to the events leading upto and following the EDSA Revolution. In 1987 the then DEPED Head Aparacio Mequi decided to reset all the Palarong Pambansa records. This was due to the fact that the DEPED board changed the rules, the last games in 1983 and prior allowed National level athletes to participate (such as Elma Muros and Lydia De Vega) who made the national team at the age of 14 and 15 for the SEA Games which meant they were also young enough to play High School level at Palaro. From 1988 onwards athletes of this caliber where no longer allowed to participate at the Palaro. For my listing purposes all Palaro results from 1974 onwards will be included in these lists.
Also to note is that some records were actually tied and reported as broken with only one holder. For the purpose of these lists ties will be considered co-record holders in the events.
Due to somewhat limited data these lists maybe due for amendment.
The first list is going to deal with Tertiary Men. Please note that CHED is also ran by DEPED so this is considered the Tertiary portion of the Palaro, sometimes they are combined. Also i am considering any open age athletes when they had an open age division for these Tertiary records. As Date of Birth is not important for open age due to it being ‘open age’ I have not been so particular on dates of Birth.

- Additions in red
Leading the Mens 4×100 was National Champion Laguna. The Mens 4×4 Team of Bano, Nierras, Bagsit and Alejan lead the 4×400 rankings. Also added 4×200.
College of Saint Benilde broke the NCAA Record in the 4×100 and FEU won the Uni Games.
SEA Games fourth place getter and National Record Holder Eleazer Sunang led the Shot put Rankings with 15.58m. Albeit his best is 16.35m. The bar has really been raised now for SEA Games qualification with the bronze medal criteria now 17.08m. Sunang is well ahead of the rest of the list.
The up comer is Richie Cabanyog of Bacolod and now at DLSU Taft who broke the one year old Palaro Record with a heave of 13.90, and set a personal best of 14.15m at the regional s with the 6kg shot. Cabanyog however using the senior shotput (7.26kg) could only manage a much smaller throw of 12.63m.
Meanwhile with the 6kg shotput UST Gary Santiago set a UAAP Record for Boys. The Criteria for the ranking list in shotput in 2013 remains the same as 2012 at 12.50m.
The Discus was led by Hammer Thrower Arneil Ferrera, followed closely by 39 year old national throws coach Nixon Mas. The Criteria for Discus remains at 37.00m for 2013. The most impressive performance was by 16 year old Regan Contic of Baguio who is one to watch out for after throwing 41.17m during the weekly relays and winning the junior discus at the Philippine Nationals
4x SEA Games Champion Arniel Ferrera again easily led the ranking lists again. Four other athletes joined him on the list. Impressive newcomer to the list was Matt Crespo of Ateneo who shattered his own boys record in the Hammer Throw at the UAAP. The criteria remains 38m for inclusion in the ranking lists in 2013.
Veteran Record Holder and formerChampion Danilo Fresnido clung onto the lead for another season. The 40 year old was closely followed by Gusti Pido who is now based in Taipei and Run4Changes UAAP Champion Kenny Gonzales who both improved on their personal best throws. The SEA Games standard for this event is 66.02m, and as a silver medalist last sea games this does not make Fresnido exempt from the SEA Games qualification. Also returning was former Junior Champion Allanloid Lumbao who finished fourth at the National Games. Impressive was newcomer Joshua Patulad who shattered the boys record at the UAAP in Javelin. The Criteria has been raised from 54m to 54.30m in 2013 for the rankings.

Eleven Men Long Jump over Seven Meters in 2012!
2012 has been the best season in terms of depth ever in terms of athletes over seven Meters. With just four in 2011, and three in 2010 and five in 2009. Leading the list again is Olympian and National Record Holder Henry Dagmil (7.71m). He is followed by 2011 SEA Games Bronze Medalist Benigno Marayag (7.37m) and Triple Jump National Record Holder Joebert Delicano (7.24m) the trio finished in that order at the National Games.
A group of youngsters followed the three veteran jumpers. Juliam Reem Fuentes (7.29m) the Palaro Record Holder now at CSB. Nino Espinosa 7.15m silver at the vietnam open last year (7.42m PB), decathlete and run for change’s Jesson Ramil Cid (7.08m)400m Silver medalist Archand Bagsit (7.06m to win NCAA), Uni Games Champion Mark Fabro (7.06m), Uni Games Silver Medalist Harry Diones (7.06m), and 18 year-old Uni Games Bronze medalist Janry Ubas (7.01m), and Jebbie Rebucas of WVRAA (7.00m).
The rise in depth in this event means the criteria to be ‘Ranked’ next year means a standard raised from 6.80m to 7.00m. Very good depth as well as four of the top ten of all time are currently active with 7.35m being the criteria to make the top ten.
A leap of 7.00m or over is required to make the ranking lists in 2013, this was 6.80m for this year.
Triple Jump Mens
SEA Games veteran and National Record Holder Joebert Delicano marginally leads the Triple Jump list with 15.20m. 32 year old Delicano holds the Phil record at 16.12m. It will take another new national record for Delicano, as SEA Games bronze standard is 16.14m this shouldn’t be too far out of his reach.
Upcoming Ernest Ybanez of Cebu showed a return to form with 15.08m, just 3cm off the leap he registered to win the Junior National Title in 2010. Magcusang and Ubas were new comers to this list. While the Diones brothers finally broke long standing personal best performances at the Uni Games. The set standard remains at 14.00m for 2013.
High Jump: Lasangue qualifies for SEA Games
Last year three jumpers all cleared 2.00m, this year only Lasangue who led the list has managed to achieve that feat again. Lasangue from Iloilo improved his best leap which was established way back in 2010 when he won the University Games for WIT. His leap of 2.10m is good enough to make the SEA Games bronze medal standard. Albeit according to the SEA Games ranking list he will need to jump 2.15m+ who actually win a SEA Games medal.
Despite balancing a busy full time job at Meralco, Lasangue switched back from Decathlon to High Jump and the change back has paid off with a SEA Games qualification. Lasangue is coached by National Record Holder Sean Guevarra who also hails from Iloilo.
Ray Cris Capispan and Andrew Wilson who both leapt 2.00m, seem to have faded out of the picture this year with leaps of 1.97 and 1.90m.
The top new comer this year is Janry Ubas who has improved his best leap to 2.00m at the UAAP he won the high jump in 1.95 and surprisingly cleared higher during the decathlon, albeit the 18 year old is very far from the immortal junior record of Fil-Heritage Luis Juico 2.16m which has stood untouched since 1987.
Also on the list is SCUAA Champion (400m runner) Christopher Demata , PRISAA Champion Gavin Genil and National Junior Champion Jayson Calpa.
The criteria cut off for the high jump is 1.90 for 2012 and 2013.
Two Fil-Heritage Vaulters begin journey for the SEA Games
The Discovery of two Fil-Heritage Jumpers who ranked second and third in SEA Rankings this year has breathed new life into an event which has not won a gold medal since Edward Lasquette in 1995.23 year old Caleb Monticalvo (5.03m) who competes in Division 2 from California and 22 year old Julio Alorro (4.91m) from New Jersey who competes in Division 3 in the States will get there season under way in a few weeks with their quest to regain the glory for the Philippines in this event.
Former SEA Games representative 30 year old Jerome Margallo is well behind with a 4.56 indoor jump and a no jump at the National Games. National Junior record holder 17 year old EJ Obiena also has a 4.41 indoor leap. While Masters record holder and National Champion Emerson Obiena has leapt 4.38m indoors.
Obiena Breaks Junior Records Multiple Times
The future of men’s pole vault in the Philippines looks very bright thanks to the well established Philippine Pole Vault Club and there supporters. If the performances of two new fil-heritage discoveries show promise for the 2013 SEA Games. The event is truly in very safe hands with another upcoming star EJ Obiena the son of veteran Pole Vaulter and Coach Emerson Obiena. EJ has broken the national record multiple times now taking the mark 4.25, 4.30, 4.40, and then 4.50 meters at the UAAP. The Ateneo freshman also broke the UAAP Record of Margallo set 6 years ago.
There is very good overall depth in the Pole Vault with half of the top ten vaulters of all time active this season with 12 jumpers leaping over 4.00m which is equal to last year with nine in 2010, and seven in 2009. Seven vaulters went over 4.20 compared to five last year. Due to this improvement the standard to make the list in 2012 now is 4.00m no longer 3.90m.
Adel Valdecenas also set a personal best and Gorby Pajardo put himself at #10 on the junior all time list.
