Gone to the Clowns, Fuentes breaks Philippines NCAA Long Jump Record
Julian ‘Happy Clowns’ Fuentes, 20 of CSB broke the NCAA Long Jump Record with a leap of 7.42m. Fuentes who is trained by Joseph Sy eclipsed the mark of Henry Dagmil of Mapua by 7.34m in 2004. Dagmil went on to become three times SEA Games Champions in 2005, 2007, and 2013, and Olympian in 2012 before retiring from the National team to become a coach last year.
Silver went to Aristeo Del Pena, 18 of Arellano in a new personal best of 7.21m, and also with the same leap for the bronze was Mark Vicent Ramos, 18 of Mapua with a new personal best of 7.21m. Ramos a current member of the national training pool was fourth in the 2014 ASEAN School Games.
Fuentes while happy to break the record, was not satisfied entirely.
Yeah im happy buddy, but not totally I didn’t get my target I know that I can jump over 7. 80. I am excited about the National Open.
Fuentes’s personal best is 7.55m which he leaped for second place at the 2015 National Open. Bypassed in the 2015 selection for the SEA Games, in favor of Fil-Heritage Donovont Arriola, 24 the National Champion (ended up with bronze at SEA Games), and Henry Dagmil.
Fuentes is looking forward to the National Open where his main opponents will be Arriola and ASEAN School Games Record Holder Jerry Belibestre of Negros, 17 who have bests of 7.64 and 7.47m.
The exciting three-way dance may replicate the competitions of 2015.
The win gives Fuentes the season lead with 7.42, over Belibestre with 7.39, and Arriola with 7.26.
Jomar Udtohan Breaks NCAA 100 record fast final, and Pinoyathletics sets the Record straight.

Jomar Udtohan, 19 of San Sebastian College posted a New Philippines NCAA Record of 10.66 +0.4. Done in the heats of the 100 Meter Dash at the 2016 NCAA at Pasig. Also, the mark eclipsed the old record of Anfernee Lopena (CSB) 10.73 set in the 2014 NCAA.
Pinoyathletics would like to acknowledge the hard work and focus of Mr. Jec Gando a teacher and long-time coach at San Sebastian College with his work on Udtohan. While it’s local coaches like Mr. Gando who devote a lot of their own time and money make a big difference to the performance of our athletes both locally and competing overseas.
It was incorrectly reported in the official results that Udtohan time of 10.59 in the finals was a New NCAA Record. However, the finals had a wind-aided performance with a following wind of +2.4. According to IAAF rules for meeting records, the wind must not exceed +2.0. Pinoyathletics will be recognizing the 10.66 performance in the heats as the New Philippines NCAA Record.
Udtohan still however had a big improvement on his previous best time of 10.88 which is the Junior Philippines NCAA Record set in the 2014 edition.
Also, he currently holds the Palarong Pambansa Record in the 100m, 200m, and 400m which earned him the MVP award in the 2014 Palaro in Laguna.
Udtohan’s mark of 10.66, was the eighth fastest 100 Meter time by a Filipino male.
In the Finals, although wind-aided with 2.4, six athletes! ran below 10.90 seconds. Hence probably the fastest field in the event’s history. While Compare this to the UAAP which was won in 10.94 with only two athletes breaking 11.00 seconds.
In the heats, due to legitimate wind readings below 2.0, some athletes ran best times or close to best times.
While former record holder Anfernee ‘Warm Bodies’ Lopena ran 10.74 in the heats, just .01 from his best time of 10.73.
Also 2015 National Bronze medalist ‘The Great’ Rodquem Maullon clocked a new PB of 10.90 in the heats improving from 10.96 at the Nationals.
While John Renzelle Capingian improved his best time from 11.14 to 10.96. Yet unfortunately for his teammate Fernan Lopez, his heat was also +2.1 10.90 and finals 10.85 +2.4. Ezra Gonzales last year’s Junior NCAA Champion improved his best time from 11.35 to 11.05 in the heats.
This bodes very well for the Mens 4×100 Relay, with Fil-Heritage sprinters SEA Games Champion Eric Cray (10.25), National Champion Brandon Thomas (10.56 PB, 10.72) and Bryan Mercado (10.51), bolstering a strong relay squad and also local sprinter Isidro Del Prado Jr. (10.73).
I’m excited buddy to be in the same relay team as the Great Eric Cray, representing the Philippines it’s my dream to run at the SEA Games. said a very eager Udtohan to Pinoyathletics.
The other athletes will be sticking their hands up for a start in the 2017 SEA Games.
Reymond Alferos !! Breaks the Record, NCAA 400
Reymond Alferos fulfilled the expectations of his coaches by breaking the NCAA Record with a run of 48.71. Alferos is a student at Mapua. A few years ago he ran on some bad luck being removed from the National Team. He clocked a personal best of 48.40 at the National championships. Then was given a second chance on the national team.
While the former record was from 2013 SEA Games Champion Archand Bagsit of Letran with a time of 48.87 set in the 2012 NCAA. Bagsit trained with Ben Humangit and then with Ernie Candelario.
Jomar Udtohan (San Sebastian) who won the 100 and 200, took second place in 48.76 also beneath the old record, and Anfernee Lopena (CSB) the bronze in 49.50.
Alferos is under National head coach Sean Guevarra. But trained by his good friend and former National Coach Ernie Candelario. Candelario was removed from the national coaching staff last year. Has improved Alferos from a 51 runner to a 48 runner in a few years. And continues to work and improve developing athletes. Pinoyathletics would like to congratulate the two athletes for their strong devotion to the sport and continued development of promising athletes.
