2017 Philippines NCAA Athletic Results
2017 Philippines NCAA Athletic Results
Mar 19, 2017
In the 2017 Philippines NCAA Athletic Results Season 92, 13 Records Fell.
4 Records in the Men’s. And 9 in the Boys.
Jomar Udtohan ran 10.66 (+0.4 m/s) in the heats of 2016. However, his time in the 2016 final of 10.59 (+2.4 m/s) cannot be ratified as it is over the allowable limit for records of (+2.0 m/s), Hence meaning too much wind assistance in the race.
Therefore Lopena time in 2017 in the heats of 10.65 (+0.3 m/s) in the warmth is the new NCAA Record.
Francis Medina continued to improve his NCAA Record in the 400 Hurdles. It belonged originally to his schoolmate Philip Silloco (Perpetual), who had run 54.86 in 2012. Medina’s progression was 54.40 in 2014, 53.47 in 2015, 53.26 in 2016, and in 2017 he clocked 52.98.
Julian Reem Fuentes improved his own meet record of 7.42m by leaping 7.59m (+1.3 m/s). It was an impressive event, with the top five all jumping over 7.00m.
And in Shotput, Ron Mols Andawa heaved a massive 14.51m to shatter his JRU teammate Albert Mantua (13.90m). Udtohan, Lopena, Medina, and Fuentes are all members of the national team
Edwin Giron Jr. from Zamboanga City was even more impressive, now running for EAC, who took nearly 3 secs off the 800m boy’s record with a time of 1.56.83. Giron is the Batang Pinoy champion in the 800 and 1500.
Arellano’s Johndee Vinzon shattered his teammate Immuel Camino’s record, clocking 9.09.32 in the boys 3000m.
Lorenz Sediarn (San Sebastian) took 1.5 secs off the 400 Hurdles in the heats with a run of 56.42.
More success came for Emilio Aguinaldo College, who secured the Boy’s overall title by breaking the 4×100 and 4×400 boys’ records. Tyrone Flores of EAC also added 2m to the discus record.
JRU Miller Manulat helped himself to the boy’s records in both the boys Long and Triple Jump.
While Arellano Albert Ubando tied the boy’s high jump record.
Phi NCAA: Clowns Julian Fuentes & 4 buddies leap 7m+
Mar 6, 2017
Julian Reem Fuentes (CSB), 22, shattered his own Philippines NCAA Record with a 7.59m effort Breaking the 7.42m he set last year. But he was not alone in helping himself to this kind of action.
4 of his buddies also went over the 7-meter barrier. Fuentes’s effort was 10cm off his PB of 7.69m when he won the Singapore Open last April. The 7.59m tops the Philippine Ranking list and puts him above the SEA Games silver medal standard.
Aristeo Dela Pena of Arellano improved his PB to 7.44m, also passing the old record. Improving from 7.21m. And unknown Joshua Tero of San Beda took Bronze with 7.26m.
While National training pool member Vincent Ramos (Mapua) could only manage fourth in 7.23m, at the same time, another training pool member Rone Malipay (Lyceum of Manila), could only work fifth with 7.11m. However, Malipay was able to win the Long Jump 15.17m, now that Harry Diones has no more playing years in the UAAP.
Two other athletes were reported to have leaped over 7 meters also. I am waiting for the official results.
The Boys record also was broken with JRU Miller Manulat leaping 6.83m. And erasing the performance of John Resty Lorenzo (San Sebastian) 6.77m set three seasons ago.
Meanwhile, in Bacolod Monthly Relays, 19-year-old Jerry Belibestre, the countries top Junior Long Jumper, leaped 7.52m to rank second behind Fuentes. And tie the SEA Games silver standard.
Also in the running is Janry Ubas, who leaped 7.39m to break UAAP Record. Ubas, the SEA Games Decathlon Bronze medallist, jumped 7.55m last year. SEA Games Bronze medalist Fil-Heritage Donovant Ariola (PB 7.64m), based in El Paso, Texas, is yet to register a performance this year. Another Fil-Heritage athlete Tyler Ruiz based in Los Angeles, who leaped 7.63m last year, could only manage a 7.08m effort at a meet in Los Angeles.
SEA Games was won in 7.75m in 2015 by Supanara of Thailand, Pham Van Lam of Vietnam was silver in 7.52m, and bronze went to Donovont Ariola of Philippines in 7.51m.
SEA Games will be held in August; there is until June for selections to be finalized.
