Is filling up travel stamps in his passport, having been to Singapore, Thailand, and now Brunei. Bigyan training partner Isidro Del Prado Jr., who also trains with Former SEA Games 3x Champion Ernie Candelario, is also attending.

Del Prado is self-funding as he is not a priority (SEA Games medalist athlete in 2015). He has switched his event to the 100 and 200m Dash. A former 2013 SEA Games gold medalist in the 4×400. During the weekly relays, Del Prado improved his PB from 11.01 to 10.73.His 200m PB is 21.88 when he won the 2013 UAAP.

Del Prado is eyeing up securing his place in the team. Having recently joined the Phil Airforce and being a regular competitor at the weekly relays. He has his eyes set on breaking the Airforce records of Eric Cray (100m 10.67, 2014) and Julius Nierras (200m 21.59, 2015). Del Prado’s father, Isidro Del Prado Sr., the current phi record holder in the 400m (45.57) and former Philippine national head coach, is currently the head coach Brunei.

Janry Ubas delivered a gold medal for the Philippines with a 7.35m leap just outside the 7.45m he dished out at the SEA Games Decathlon, where he took the Bronze.

Isidro Del Prado Jr. (Tilo) battled through three rounds of the 100 Meter Dash.

SEA Games Finalist won the Final, and home favorite Mohammed Fiqri in 10.79, trained by Isidro Del Prado Sr. Tilo and Bohari (Fiqri training partner) clocked 10.89 in a close finish for silver and bronze. It was so close that the meet officials said they would need to spend some more time to decide the podium finish. Del Prado has a PB of 10.73 from the weekly relays, and 10.89 was his next best time.

Del Prado will compete in the 200m dash tomorrow; his PB is 21.88 from 2013. Meanwhile, Tilo’s teammate Ryan ‘The Duck’ Bigyan took bronze in the 400-meter dash in 48.81. Well outside his PB of 47.42 set at the 2015 National Open. A Sri Lankan won the event.

But conditions were very wet and windy, with Del Prado clocking his fastest ever electronic time in any conditions while his official PB remains at 21.88 (2013).

The photo finish in the 100 Meters yesterday was favorable to Del Prado. Who was awarded the Silver ahead of Bohari of Brunei. Bohari also clocked an identical time of 10.89.

While just missing out on the Phil Airforce Record of Julius Nierras 21.59. He now looks forward to some good meets at the weekly relays.
