March 17, 2019

Davao Ng Araw was held 16-17 March at Ateneo De Davao Track Oval.

Due to the irregular size of the Ateneo De Davao oval 300m around.

Only 100m and field events can be considered for rankings held at Davao.




We’ve seen that some athletes or coaches are posting that the 2019 Araw ng Davao Athletics Festival is also called 2019 PATAFA Araw ng Davao.

The sole official name of the event is the 2019 ARAW NG DAVAO ATHLETICS FESTIVAL.

Please be informed that the 2019 Araw ng Davao is organized and funded by the City Government of Davao under the Sports Development Division-Office of the City Mayor of Davao in partnership with the Office of the Athletics-Ateneo de Davao University.

This means the event in Davao is not funded or sanctioned by the PATAFA. The Regional Development Officer for Region XI- Davao Region, Ms. Belen K. Taala, is currently indisposed/incapacitated due to medical reasons (2017).

Hence, I would like to request any posts concerning Davao and PATAFA to be edited.

For everybody’s information and reference.

Pinoyathletics Polls

[poll id=”2″]

  • 17 Voted for Ernest Obiena. However, it was not able to quite make the standard for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Better Luck for 2020. 
  • Marestella Torres, who only had 6 votes in a distant second, actually qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
  • Katherine Santos, who tied for 6 votes, also failed to qualify.
  • Mary Joy Tabal, who was 4th with only 4 Votes, qualified for the Olympics along with Marestella and Eric Cray (who had already qualified at the time of this poll)

[poll id=”4″]

The Audience predicted with 14 of 41 votes 30-35 Golds, The Philippines in the 2017 SEA Games, in fact, ended up with 24 Golds total. So the voters were totally wrong again on this one. Pinoyathletics had predicted 25-32 golds. Pinoyathletics was correct as the Philippines had 25 Golds until Colin Syquia was stripped of Gold as his horse failed a doping test. 9 Predicted 25-32, which was somehow correct but not as correct as of the 7 that predicted 20-25

[poll id=”8″]

The Winner was, In fact, CLINTON!!!!!!!

[poll id=”10″]

The Audience (13 votes) predicted Trenten Beram would rank the highest at the 2018 Asian Games. However, Beram was not able on this occasion to advance to either final in 200-400. Eric Cray and Ernest Obiena ranked fairly highly in the 6th positions. While Kristina Knott, who got 1 vote, also ranked 6th.

[poll id=”12″]

8 People voted for Lopena at Asian Games to emerge the fastest man in 100m. While he put in a valiant effort, his run ended in the semi-finals. Bingtian Su, in fact, went on a win (6 votes)

ASIAN GRAND PRIX, Chonqing, China, Women’s Long Jump

Marestella Torres Oly will represent the Philippines at the Asian Grand Prix. The 38-year-old who is preparing for her last SEA Games will be well challenged.

It’s a good season for Torres, who won the National Open in March, Thailand Open in May, and then finishing silver more recently in the Taipei Open by a centimeter.

The competition is the 2018 Asian Games, and reigning SEA Games champion Bui Thi Thu Thao of Vietnam.

Also featured is 2014 Asian Games Champion Maria Natalia Londa of Indonesia, who Marestella was able to beat at the Thailand Open.

Thus the top 3 Jumpers in South East Asia (over the last 4 years) will be represented here.

It’s a very competitive 8 women lineup with Asian Bronze medalist Yue Ya Xin winding up her home crowd. As will Gong Buying, the 2017 World Youth Champion.

2014 Asian Indoor Champion Hiraka Yurina will be represented. However, Konomi ‘The Joker’ Kai Marestella buddy is not represented here after joining every meet Mariz has entered so far this year

Pinoyathletics announces the closure of Three Legacy Groups.

Union of Grass Root Coaches

Pinoyathletics is announcing we are ending our ‘Union of Grass root coaches Group’. The page really did not serve its function. With members who will remain anonymous, one poaches an athlete from another group member, and others do not understand the group’s relevance regarding regionalization concepts.

Many members are going on about their issues and how they believe in regionalization but then do the complete opposite when recruiters come knocking. An upcoming project will fix all that soon.

The more trusted members have been added to my training group. And others in Mindanao can join the Mindanao Athletics Group.

One dude who definitely has been on board the whole time is Prof. Airnel Talatala Abarra, who now successfully is running his own Competition League in Mindanao.
