5 Spectacular Performances at the 2018 Philippine National Athletics Open

#1 Caminong Claims Sole Ownership of the Philippines Junior Women’s High Jump Record

It has been a very interesting High Jump in junior girls at the national open. Which began at the Palarong Pambansa and splurged out in the Heptathlon event. As the dust settled Evangeline  (Dasmarinas) claimed sole ownership of the Junior Women’s High Jump record with a 1.71m effort in the High Jump.

The 5’6 Caminong beat her very worthy nemesis Alexie Caimoso 5’8 from Iloilo (competing for Ateneo) who registered 1.68m tying the old junior record.  Alexie still leads the Hepta.

Tidying up a Junior Record

The Junior Record of 1.68m was set by Kaylene Mosequeda (FEU) in 2016 and also held by both Caimoso and Caminong at the Palaro 2018 in Vigan. Caimoso winning on countback.

In fact in the National Open High Jump on Day 1 Caimoso won with  1.65m over Caminong on countback. So it was third time lucky for the 17-year-old Caminong who is heading to National University next year and is originally from Palawan.

Alexie and Evangeline will both be teammates in the High Jump at the ASEAN School Games next month in Thailand. And will both face the strong challenge of Vietnam (1.76m), Thailand (1.74m), and Malaysia (1.71m). Caimoso had jumped an unsanctioned leap of 1.72m at the District meet last December.

#2 Put it All on the Clowns. All Hail King Julian. 

Shining the brightest on day 1. We put it all on the clowns :). Was Julian ‘Happy Clowns’


King Julian
All Hail King Julian. Clowns on Top! Fuentes best the 19 men long jump field to win his first national title. 5 Spectacular Performances at the 2018 Philippine National Athletics Open

Fuentes who has deprived the chance to play at the 2015 and 2017 SEA Games despite having the bronze standard made sure of his dominance at the  Philippine National Championships in Ilagan.  Fuentes disappointed and frustrated who quit the sport after being ruled out of the  2017 SEA Games.  Just made a come back a few months ago into training, leaping 7.22m and then a disappointing performance of 7.08m in Singapore.

But the 23-year-old Fuentes proved that the best champions are the ones who get back up when the world pushes them down.  Truly it’s hard to understand the difficult questions that have been on the Clowns mind the last 4 years, as he thoroughly searched his soul over and over again for answers.

Luck did turn around for Julian as he had a minor victory at the PNG with a 7.56m season’s best leap. At the National Open the following week he proved he was the most dominant Jumper in the country with a 7.71m effort. Which breaks his Personal best of 7.69m from 2016. This would be Julian’s first senior national title, and it was a long road full of hardship.

Julian Reem Fuentes

  • Gold / National Title
  • First Senior National Title
  • Personal Best
  • Season Best
  • Still #4 all-time list, #3 is Joebert ‘Grover’ Delicano 7.74m next target
  • #2 Philippine Rankings 2018 behind Ubas, who he beat here
  • #3 SEA Rankings 2018

Fuentes was developed by Coach Erikson in Isabella, not far from where he won his national title. Erikson guided and mentored Julian to what is still the Palaro Long Jump record of 7.26m. In fact, his original master was there watching on proudly as the boy he developed early on became a national champion near his home town.

He was then recruited by Coach Joseph Sy at College of Saint Benilde who guided him for most of his career from thereon. Joebert Delicano and then recently has started working with National Coach Sean Guevara.

Very exciting Long Jump competition

All Hail King Julian. Clowns now on Top! Fuentes bests the 19 strong Long Jump field to crown himself National Champion. In what was probably the best Long Jump competition since DVT (Donovant) vs The Boar (Marayag), vs The Clowns (Fuentes) at the National Open in Laguna 2015.

Four men went 7.47m or more. Janry Ubas (RP-Ilagan) the SEA Games bronze medalist took silver with 7.63m, SEA Games Decathlon Champion Aries Toledo (Mapua) took bronze with 7.47m on a close 1-centimeter count-back (7.45m next best jump) from National Junior Record Holder Jerry Belibestre (Negros) 7.47m  also but (7.44m next best jump).

The Quartet beat their foreign challengers Andre Anura of Malaysia  7.31m (who is bound for Asian Juniors in a few days) and WP Jayasiri (Sri Lanka) who is an 8-meter jumper but had no luck here with a 7.10m effort well off his personal best.

#4 Trenten Beram beats Eric Cray

#5 Joyme Sequita

MANILA, Philippines – A 6-foot-1 find from Roxas City stole the thunder by battling the top seeds in the 400 meters before finishing second in the Ayala Philippine Athletics Championships in Ilagan, Isabela on Friday, June 1.

Joyme Sequita, a 23-year-old criminology graduate, finished second in 47. 34 behind winner Dilip Ruwan of Sri Lanka, who won in 46.87.

Sequita, who drew the tough lane 1 but kept pace in a very fast first 200 meters, clocked 22 seconds unofficially.

In the last 50 meters, the runners began to tighten. As Ruwan powered ahead, it was Sequita’s finish that allowed him to nose out MG Ajith Premakumara. The Sri Lankan was third in 47.65.

The hard pace led people to believe that the 33-year-old national mark of 45.57 by Isidro del Prado will be broken.

The New Breed

Sequita, who represented Mapua, and Ramirez were the only Filipinos in the final.

“ We have to fix many things with him but his knee action in the finish helped a lot,” said Sequita’s coach, Ernie Candelario in a phone interview.

“ He is a real sprinter-type 400-meter man,” added Candelario, a former SEA Games 400m champion.

Candelario spotted Sequita two years ago in the PRISAA. He said every year, he would ask Sequita to join training sessions.

“He stil has to build muscle that’s why he can’t use the (starting) blocks much,” said Candelario. “But we will get there.” –
