a

On the thrilling fourth day of the Batang Pinoy.

A huge surprise came from the youngest entry in the girl’s 200m Dash.

What could be more thrilling than a young champion, but an even younger athlete upstaging them

This all came into place when Angel Ann Pranisa of Bacolod.

She further her name as an upcoming sprinter with her shock win in the Girls 200m Dash at the 2016 Batang Pinoy Finals in Tagum.

Pranisa won in a wind-aided time of 26.15, finishing ahead of Palaro 400 Hurdles Champion Riza Jane Valiente of  Bohol (26.40) and Samantha Limos Cebu (26.42).

The win over Limos, who had won the 100m title earlier in the meet but failed to defend her 200 titles on this occasion, was a big confidence boost for Pranisa.

Only due to a last-minute appeal to PATAFA was she allowed to enter as she was born in 2004 and the only athlete born in 2004 allowed to participate.

The clash between Limos, 14, and Pranisa, 12, also saw Limos the Palaro Record Holder in the 100m up against Pranisa the Palaro Elementary Record Holder in 100 and 200.

Limos time of 26.05 in the heats, however, serves as one of the joint meet records.

Pranisa, times of 12.5ht and 12.75, and her windy 12.65 all surpass her time of 12.81 from Palaro as the fastest ever times record by a Filipino 12-year-old girl. Pranisa time in the 200 of 26.15 fell short of the national age-grade record held by Fil-Australian Maricor Cuenca of 26.10 sets back in 2000.

For Pranisa, however, who hails from the famous Arca Sibblings Piglet group and is a grade 7 student at Romanito P. Maravilla High School, she is looking forward to more exciting matches Limos next year.

Day 3 2016 Batang Pinoy Athletics: Several records for Leyte

Dec 2, 2016

More memorable moments for the Batang Pinoy.

Relay Records Fall

2016 Batang Pinoy
Leyte’s Relay Team

Leyte Girls 4×100 team of Lenlyn Sanita, Justin Mae Catindoy, Bianca Combate, and Chin-Chin Alkuino continued the proud legacy of Leyte Sports Academy at this meet.

Hence erasing two records both held by Powerhouse Leyte.

As a result, they clocked a new record of 50.44 in the 13-15 girls.

Consequently, tidying up the record books erasing the mark of 50.6 (hand-timed) from 2012.

The 2012 team had mostly included Leah ‘The Bear’ Creer, the 2014 Palaro Champion in 400m.

Also erasing 51.13 (electronic) from 2014, Catindoy was a part of the last remaining member.

Also, along with Philippine Junior Record Holder in 100 Hurdles Karen Janario, 2015 Palaro 400m Champion Feiza Lenton and Gemalyn Pino.

Hence very far ahead of Negros 52.00 and Cebu City 52.16.

Meanwhile, Iloilo, the Palaro Champions in 4×100 secondary girls, established an initial record in Girls 16-17 clock 50.08.

The lineup included Berna Luz Talaron, Elvy Villagoniza, Anne Mercurio, and Ezel Divingracia.

They won easily over Negros 51.30 and Leyte  51.68.

Cebu City also set an initial Batang Pinoy record of 44.71 in Boys 16-17 4×100.

The team comprises Batang Pinoy champion Set Abram Pilapil, Mike Lopez, John Paul Apilan, and John Rafols, the Palaro jumps champion.

Binan, Laguna was a close second in 44.81, with Koronadal picking up bronze in 44.99.

Mighty Marjun!

Marjun Sulleza

Meanwhile, in the 400m 16-17 Boys Marjun Sulleza Palaro (Koronadal) silver medalist set a new Batang Pinoy record timing 49.97, he was well clear of his neighbor Kenneth Corpuz (South Cotabato) 51.38 and Joey Mesina (Ligao City) 52.11. Meanwhile, in 13-15 Boys, Veruel Verdardero (Dasmarinas) added the 400 to his 100 titles but could not break the 51.75 records of Joselito Hapitan from last year.

A distant second was Marchan Torregoza (Cebu) 54.14, with Al Nhaquieb Sappari (Gen Santos) 54.39 taking the bronze.

Palaro Champion Jessel Lumapas (Dasmarinas) set a new record in the Girls 16-17 400m with 58.65. Pino (Leyte) 1.00.72 and Isabel Orqueiza (Negros) last year’s Champion 1.01.10 took silver and bronze.

While in the girls 13-15 400m, Palaro silver medalist Lenlyn Sanita (Leyte) tidied up the records with a run of 59.16, claiming sole ownership.

Previous records were 59.1 (hand-timed) from Feiza Lenton of Leyte from 2 years ago and Isabel Orqueiza 59.47 (electronic) from last year.

Junmark Ganacias (Carmen, Surigao Del Sur) set a new Triple Jump record for Boys 16-17 with a 14.77m effort, narrowly beating Karl Aquino (Binan, Laguna) 14.71m.

Firstly Eduardo Josh Buenavista, 15 (Baguio), the son of 4X SEA Games champion Eduardo Buenavista, took the Gold in 16:58.92.

Albeit some 12 seconds away from the meet record. Buenavista was a silver medalist for the Philippines at the Children of Asia Games in the 2k steeples.

Last year MVP Gianelli Gatinga who has represented the Philippines at an age-grade competition, now won the 16-17 Girls Triple Jump in 11.63m.

Not quite her record of 11.79m registered last year and the year before, which stands in 13-15 girls.

Edwin Giron Jr. of Dasmarinas (originally from Zamboanga City) captured the gold in the Boys 800m in a new PB of 1.58.59, adding it to 1500 he had won the other day.

2016 Batang Pinoy Century Dash too much wind for Official Records to count

Boys 16-17 100 Final
Boys 16-17 100 Final

Some good performances in the finals.

With all marks surpassing meet records, however, due to too much wind assistance, none of these marks can be counted as meet records.

The Fastest Man at the meet came from the boys 13-15 division. Veruel Verdardero (Dasmarinas City), the defending champion of the Batang Pinoy, clocked 10.95et. His first time to dip under 11 in automatic timing.

Verdardero, however, was aided by a strong +4.1 tailwind.

Hence his mark of 11.40et. Last year will remain as the 13-15 record.

Veruel time of 10.8 in the heats subject to wind reading can be considered a joint record with his 11.40.

Veruel has already represented the Philippines at least once in a southeast Asian age-grade meet and joined the Children of Asia meet.

Veruel held off Vince Buhayan (Iloilo) 11.43 and Ponce Cabungcal (Aklan) 11.54.

The 16-17 Boys division was not as fast.

But it was a more closely fought race with a photo finish separating the top three by hundredths of seconds.

When the dust settled, it was a dramatic win for Set Abram Pilapil, 17 of Cebu City.

An unlikely winner Pilapil had failed to make the Palarong Pambansa final in Albay earlier in the year.

Pilapil breezed through to a win in 11.26 with a handy +2.5 tailwind after looking rather ordinary in the heats.

Rodolfo Aldzona (Muntinlupa) clocked 11.28 for a second, at the expense of Palaro bronze medalist Jovianne Calixto of Binan 11.29 (well off his 10.98 PB); the upset was Palaro silver medalist and pre-race favorite Jeremiah Cortez, who faded to sixth in 11.44.

Cortez was tired of running 100, 200, and 400 events during this meet, which proved too difficult a task.

Pilapil hails from the University of San Carlos in Cebu.

In 13-15 Girls again, the fastest women in the meet were Samantha Limos, 14 (Cebu), who clocked 12.41 (3.4), the Palaro Record holder made it another gold for Cebu. She was quite far from her 11.99 PB, however.

Even though she eclipsed her 12.48-time last year, and did not count it as wind-aided, another time in semis was faster, with 12.39.

Following her to silver was another talented phenom Angel Ann Pranisa, 12 (Bacolod), the Palaro Elementary record holder and fastest ever 12-year-old the Philippines has produced.

Bronze went to discover Biance Jane Combate, 13 of Leyte Province.

In the 16-17 Girls category Eliza Cuyom (Dasmarinas), a Palaro finalist narrowly won in 12.66 from newcomer Annie Mercurio (Iloilo) 12.67 and Palaro bronze medalist Berna Luz Talaron (Iloilo) 12.85. This time with a +2.1 wind.

Meanwhile, in the Girls 13-15 division. Samantha Limos.

It was good to meet up with some old media faces, particularly Clyde Mariano, Lito Oredo, and even Joey Villar.

I even saw and had retained quite many PSC staff, but and had shuffled them into different departments.

I am delighted to see some of my former workmates, such as Quiel Moran, move onto better government positions.

Ms. Celia Kiram advised that 13,774 participants will participate in this year’s 2016 Batang Pinoy.

MEDIA RELEASE 2016 Batang Pinoy

Provincial Sports Director Giovanni Gulanes advised that the province’s budget was 10 Million pesos, but more assistance came from PSC.

Mr. Gulanes also highlighted they started with 21 billeting schools for athletes, but they requested assistance from neighboring towns to cope with the unexpectedly high turnout.

Governor Del Rosario took over the top post recently from his father and was once a congressman in charge of sports development.

We are willing to hold any sports competition, any time even with just one months notice.

Its good for our athletes having opponents from other parts of the country so we can learn and get stronger.

Gov Del Rosario also printed out the plan to hold Swimming, Badminton, and maybe even Boxing at the 2017 SEA Games.

They also are planning to host the BIMPA Games in 2018.

Jeremiah-Cortez

Local favorite Jeremiah Cortez gears up for Batang Pinoy Final.

Local favorite 15-year-old Jeremiah Cortez will prepare for the biggest event of the year. No fewer than 13,374 athletes will converge on the Batang Pinoy.

Over 1,000 of those will participate in the centerpiece athletics.

For Cortez, the humble local boy who already was the runner-up with a silver medal in the 100m Dash at the 2016 Palarong Pambansa in Albay.

It has been a season of success—Cortez trains in Tagum with Kris Padian Junasa.

A UP sports science graduate and the provincial strength and conditioning coach for Davao Del Norte.

He is also helped by school teacher Mam. Anita. Cortez acknowledged the variation in weight training really helped get him to the next level in sprints.

He also trains 6 days a week once a day, alternating between weights and track sessions.

In Palaro 100m Dash Cortez finished bridesmaid to Kasi Feberoy of Cotabato.

But Feberoy is already 18 and no longer eligible for Batang Pinoy or Palaro.

Because he celebrates his birthday in a few weeks, on December 19, Cortez will participate in the 16-17 Age category.

While others may frown at the unfortunate fate of competing against older athletes, Cortez sees this as an opportunity to be well challenged by older athletes.

He sees Jovianne Calixto, the Palaro Bronze medalist from Calabarzon, and Warren Villarosa (who also has the best time of 10.9), his schoolmate at Tagum City National Comprehensive school and a strong opponent.

 

Warren is Grade 10 I am Grade 9, but he like me is one of four athletes who never skips training. said Cortez.

Cortez, unlike most athletes, has opted to stay in Tagum.

Unlike most athletes, Cortez has opted to stay in Tagum with the provincial government’s full support and declined several offers from Manila schools and colleges.

Coach Junasa appreciates this as his sports science application to Jeremiah. The smaller group is really something that a coach focusing on a larger group of athletes would struggle with.

He will be competing in the 100m, 200m, and 400m at this meet.

He has run 10.93 in the 100m, 22.43 in the 200m, and 50 in the 400m.

When asked how he plans to cope with 9 rounds.

Well I suppose I’m going to be quite tired. But I think i like to focus most of my effort on the 100 meters.He said.

Cortez started running in Grade 3, but he started with middle distances of 400 and 1500.

It was only 2 years ago he had opted to focus on the short sprints.

I really want to improve more in the 200m in the future said, Cortez.

He seemed not too concerned about competing internationally, as he is still yet to secure a Filipino passport.

Cortez is ranked 14th on the Philippine Men’s Ranking List for 2014, with the best time of 10.93.

The list is dominated by Fil-Heritage athletes, led by Eric Cray with 10.25.

Samantha Limos

Samantha Limos looks to defend her Batang Pinoy Titles.

Nov 11, 2016

Samantha Gem Limos, 14 of Cebu.

The Palaro and Batang Pinoy Record Holder in the 100m Dash.

And also the fastest ever Filipina at 13 (12.47) and 14 (11.99).

She will be lining up to defend her title at the Batang Pinoy in Tagum City.

Limos also had her first international medal at the Children of Asia meet, where she had a bronze in the 100m.

I will be up against Palaro Silver Medalist Lejany Salafrana of Iloilo.

The smiling teenager came to prominence first, erasing the records of Karen Janario of Leyte, and went even further erasing the 20-year-old record from 1996 of Nancy Navalta.

Courted by many high school coaches from Manila.

Limos refused all offers and decided to stay in Cebu, enrolling at the University of Cebu.

About 12,000 athletes will be running at the Batang Pinoy slated in Tagum from November 28 to December 3.

Tagum hosted the Palarong Pambansa in 2015.

Which was Limos’ first major meet back then; she was only fourth place in the elementary.

There is rumored to be about 7 heats in the 13-15 Girls 100m Dash.

Limos also came close to Karen Janario 200m Record last Batang Pinoy clocking 25.86 outside Karen 25.72.

Please check http://bp2012.psc.gov.ph/ for updates.

From PSC via SMS

“We regret to inform you that we can no longer accept more entries. as we already have over 12,000 entries.

As we fear the capacity of the LGU.

Might not be enough.”

Apologies to my two athletes. I will give you both an opportunity to join the delegation and observe the meet.

I hope this doesn’t dishearten you too much.

I’m very pleased with your improvements as you both far exceeded my expectations and will have a lot more competitions in the future.

I’m very thankful for continuing this brilliant program revived by former PSC Commissioner Jolly Gomez and the 24/7 working Jay Alano, the opportunity for our youth, and myself, pinoyathletics Zamboanga Del Sur sports academy our 110% behind the development of Grassroots Athletics in the Philippines.

PSC Commissioner Celia Hicarte-Hira now oversees the Batang Pinoy,m and Davao-based PSC Commissioner Charles Raymond, Maxey.

Please note it was the idea of the PATAFA to not have 13 and under division. Not PSC.

Swimming does have a 13 and under division.

It is obviously not the PSC who applied this rule to apply it to all sports.

;’

My Suggestion

Due to the high number of entries, I suggest that PSC.

Holds regional meets with qualifying tournaments to limit entries for next year.

Perhaps break into 7 Divisions.

Western Mindanao, Eastern Mindanao, Western Visayas (Negros), Eastern Visayas (including Cebu, Leyte), Southern Luzon, NCR, and Northern Luzon.

The top 2 or 3 athletes in each cluster make it to the finals.12,000 far exceeded participation of palaro and previous Batang Pinoy meets.

 

2016 Batang Pinoy and PNG Dates

A Poll overwhelmingly voted against the PSC Managements decision to remove the Batang Pinoy from its program.

Next PSC Administration, please retain Batang Pinoy (May 12, 2016)

I want to write as a previous research assistant to Commissioner Jolly Gomez of PSC.

I strongly came to believe not straight away, but the Batang Pinoy is an excellent program over the years.

I urge the next administration to continue this legacy started by the PSC administration of Chairman Ricardo Garcia, pushed by Commissioner Gomez and the wonderful meet manager Atty. Jay Alano, the executive assistant of Commissioner Akiko Thompson, did in making this all possible.

As Commissioner Jolly’s research assistant, I was also his student and, in turn, learned a lot from my mentor about effective sports management and how a successful program works.

The Batang Pinoy, created by Eric Buhain, went from 1999 to 2003.

After being discontinued for so many years, the PSC revived the meet in the year 2011.

Since then, it has been growing in numbers every year in all sports.

I care not bore you with the data, but I can supply it if you want.

My email is [email protected]

The Batang Pinoy is targeted at kids 15 and below.

It is a nationwide program with qualifying rounds in Mindanao, Visayas, and Luzon. It’s considered a sport for all programs as there is no entry fee.

This also serves as a stepping stone for the Palarong Pambansa for kids 18 and below.

Athletes from the Batang Pinoy in athletics such as Karen Janario (Leyte) and Jerry Belibestre (Bacolod), have since gone onto becoming Palaro Champions and won international medals a the ASEAN School Games, also breaking the meet record and ASEAN Youth in the Long Jump.

Karen went onto becoming UAAP Champion, Break the Philippine Junior Record, and Palaro Champion in the 100 Hurdles.

More recently, in 2015, Samantha Limos (Cebu), after breaking Karen’s Batang Pinoy record, went onto surpass the Palaro Record and was selected to compete in Russia.

Here are some trends I want to share

  1. The Numbers in all sports are increasing each year exponentially.
  2. The three athletes mentioned above and many sports are from various places; not all are from Manila’s private schools.
  3. Records have been broken on an annual basis as the depth and level of competition increase each year as more talents are discovered and brought in.

The Batang Pinoy not only hosts a competition, but it also provides clinics via the PSC and the sharing of knowledge between coaches and sports experts.

The potential for further development and growth is there.

The foundation and groundwork have already been going for five years manned by the PSC’s hard-working staff in cooperation with the POC, NSA, local government, and some private sponsors.

Batang Pinoy also covers a wide range of Sports.  Nearly all of these are played at the SEA Games bi-annually.

2016 Batang Pinoy and PNG Dates

c

The PNG, according to the PSC Website, will be temporarily scheduled for next May. But announcements about the venue and technical rules are yet to be announced.

There will be qualifying rounds the same as last year, with Top three progressing to finals.

As per the PSC Website, the Batang Pinoy will be held as a straight final at Tagum, Davao Del Norte 27 November to December 2.

Interestingly, the age limit for Batang Pinoy has been raised from 15 to 17 (born 1999), unlike the previous four-five years.

This is interesting as the original purpose of Batang Pinoy is to provide a stepping stone for kids for the Palarong Pambansa, e.g., 13-year old competing against 15. Still, now a 13-year-old competes against a 17-year-old.

Now the age grading is the same as the Milo and Palaro.

The PSC is having a consultative meeting, so more details will follow by next week. Please check both websites for updates.

More Information to follow.

2016 Batang Pinoy and PNG Dates

The PNG, according to the PSC Website, will be temporarily scheduled for next May. But announcements about the venue and technical rules are yet to be announced. There will be qualifying rounds the same as last year, with Top three progressing to finals.

As per the PSC Website, the Batang Pinoy will be held as a straight final at Tagum, Davao Del Norte 27 November to December 2.

Interestingly, the age limit for Batang Pinoy has been raised from 15 to 17 (born 1999), unlike the previous four-five years. This is interesting as the original purpose of Batang Pinoy is to provide a stepping stone for kids for the Palarong Pambansa, e.g., 13-year old competing against 15. Still, now a 13-year-old compete against a 17-year-old. Now the age grading is the same as Milo and Palaro.

The PSC is having a consultative meeting, so more details will follow by next week. Please check both websites for updates.

More Information to follow.
