2019 Batang Pinoy Luzon Leg Athletics Results

March 21, 2019

2019 Batang Pinoy Luzon

I am thankful to a wide network of friends who have provided me the results.

The PSC had informed me the PATAFA has all 2019 Batang Pinoy Luzon Leg Athletics Results. The PATAFA is yet to make these available to the public.

No wind readings were taken and hand timing was used.

Please note scores e.g. 12.53 is 12.6 hand-timed. The encoding just hasn’t been properly done.

2019 Batang Pinoy Luzon
Lheslie De Lima

The standout Performance here was 14 years old 2018 Palaro Champion Lheslie De Lima winning over a large field of girls (40 in total, only top 16 times recorded).

In a time of 4:51.5 which was faster than the 2019 Senior National Champion and good enough for the 2019 SEA Ranking Lists to be released in April.

Please note any Fil-Heritage athletes who have not submitted passports scans to [email protected] will not be featured in these rankings.

2018 Batang Pinoy National Finals Day 3 Report

(Please note some of the events may not be the actual day of the event I am just posting results and doing reviews as I get them).

2018 Batang Pinoy
Peter Lachica

l

Peter Lachica of South Cotabato broke the Batang Pinoy Record in the 2000 Walk with a time of 10:08.76.

The mark absolutely shattered the previous performance of  Vincent Vianamar Dela Cruz of Bulacan who timed 10:58.01 two years ago.

So strong was the performance that all three medalists dipped well under the previous mark. Mark Anthony Estoya and Edmar De Guzman also surpassing the Meet Record.

2018 Batang Pinoy
Patrick Shane Tolentino ties the Batang Pinoy Record in High Jump

;

And the fifth record of the games went to Patrick Shane Tolentino of Zambales who cleared 1.93m to tie the 2014 Meet Record of Alexis Soqueno of Bacolod, who went onto become Palaro Champion three times in the High Jump and won a silver in the SEA Youth in the 400 Hurdles, before retiring from the sport at an early age.

Tolentino dominated these games with the second placer well beaten with 1.70m.

While in the Girls 2000m Steeples a new record was established as this is the first time the event has ever been held at the Batang Pinoy.

Margvrylle Matchino of Laguna comes from a family of distance runners her older brother Maverick being a Palaro Champion in the 800m in 2015 in Tagum. She timed 8:04.24.

Jan Rey Gallano

;

Batang Pinoy Record #7 went to  Jan Rey Gallano of Laguna, whose time of 57.20 was an electronic record with the Hand timed 56.8 of Alexis Soqueno of Bacolod still standing at 56.8 since 2014.

Soqueno took a silver medal at the SEA Youth Champs before retiring early from the sport.

Jason Jabol

;

Record #8 Jason Jabol of Dasmarinas City broke the Meet Record of Veruel Verdadero 23.01 set in Tagum in 2016.

Jabol won the 100m earlier in the Batang Pinoy. Veruel the 2x Palaro Champion in the 100 and 200 have now transferred from Dasmarinas to JRU.

And will be representing NCR at the Palaro having been with STCAA since he started high school.

Day 2 Report

New Batang Pinoy Record for Diana Hurano

With the organizers of this meet stating it will be the selection for the SEA Youth Championships that the Philippines is planning to hold next year.

I think we should really hit the panic button. As in the last 2 SEA Youth Championships Athletics, the Philippines hosted in Ilagan in 2017 and had 1 Gold Medal after selecting a large team of nearly 80 athletes.

In retrospect, the Thais sent a small contingent of 5 athletes and garnered 6 golds. 

Then in 2018, the Philippines sent a smaller contingent to the SEA Youth held in Thailand and ended up with 0 Golds.

In fact, they finished 7th and behind Timor Leste (a country of just over a million people).

In comparison when the Grass root coaches were in charge of the ASEAN School Games they got 4 Golds and 6 Golds in 2017 and 2018 with almost the same group of athletes.

The Worrying thing is that a lot of the countries best athletes eligible for the SEA Youth did not join the Batang Pinoy as they are one year too old (2003 cutoff, SEA Youth 2002).

Or they missed out on the elimination rounds due to other qualifying meets for Palaro or being out of season training-wise.

We should note in the 2017 and 2018 SEA Youth Games were the Philippines had 1 and 0 Golds respectively. During the 2016 Batang Pinoy, there were multiple record breakers. Compared to this year the competition depth is not as strong.

The Philippines finished 6th and 7th overall at the last 2 SEA Youth Champs in Athletics.

;

Hurricane Hurano Breaks Record

Diana Hurano, 15 of Bohol took the first record of the competition after a rather uneventful first day.

Hurano leap of 5.45m broke the meet record of Gianelli Gatinga of Taguig set in 2015.

While Hurano mark was impressive, at the same age Elma Muros had leaped 5.84m in 1982.

Muros holds all the best ever performances still in the Long Jump for ages 14 to 18.

Meanwhile Mariel Abuano of Botolan, Zambales was in full command of the Girls High Jump, winning by 20cm with a new meet record of 1.55m which passed the old mark of Saira De Vera of Pangasinan of 1.49m set in 2015.

;

Day 1 Report

Please note that the Organizers decided to disqualify Charlaine and Charmaine De Ocampo from the 400m Girls before the Final of the 400 after qualifying for heats. As it was ruled they did not participate in the mandatory Luzon Leg.

Hence there were only 6 starters in the 400m Girls.

2017 Batang Pinoy : Tara Borlain blasts out the best ever time by a 14-Year-old Filipina in 800m (video)

Oct 27, 2017

Vigan, At the 2017 Batang Pinoy Day 2 of Athletics.

Tara Borlain who had won the 3000m.

Absolutely dominated the Girls 800m. Furthermore, the 14-year-old Borlain clocked a time of 2.15.49.

Consequently, the time was the best ever recorded by a 14-year-old Filipina.

Hence eclipsing the mark of 2.17.2 set by Anjelica De Josef of Aklan which was set in the 2013 Palarong Pambansa in Dumaguete.

Most noteworthy is that the mark also puts her at #10 in the All-Time Junior lists for the Philippines 800m.

While this cannot be counted as a Batang Pinoy Final as only marks ran in the Final are eligible.

Out of interest, the Batang Pinoy record is 2.19.56 set by Feiza Lenton of the Leyte Sports Academy in 2014.

Which undoubtedly Tara will have no problems going past in the finals.

If anything this reiterates the fact when we have performances like this that the PSC should reconsider the Batang Pinoy.

Borlain is at St. Paul’s Pasig, so represents NCR in the Palaro.

She took an 80m win from Charmaine De Ocampo and Aaliyah Ingram of Dasmarinas City who clocked 2.26.01 and 2.28.08 for Silver and Bronze.

Tara is coached by her father former champion celebrity bodybuilder Ringo, and the family lives in Laguna.

She was a stand out in Triathlon having won the Alaska Iron Kids in 2016.

This year she focussed more on athletics running at the PATAFA Weekly Relays representing DLSU. She clocked  2.18.10 on August 27.

She was constantly finishing second place to UST Jieann Calis the Palaro Record Holder in the 800m Run.

She will again meet Calis in the Youth Girls Final next month,

Furthermore, Photos indicate quite a significant growth spurt for Tara who shot up from 5’0 to 5’7 in the last 2 years.

Tara was helped a lot thanks to the support of Alaska Milk Philippines and its CEO Fred Uytengsu.

2017 Batang Pinoy Vigan Jabol Age Grade Record 200m Round Up Summaries (videos)

Oct 27, 2017

This article will be a roundup and finalisation of all news concerning the 2017 Batang Pinoy Vigan.

And hence the last article Pinoyathletics will publish on Batang Pinoy Luzon Leg 2017 in Vigan.

Pinoyathletics.info is in firm agreement that Tara Borlain mark is the best athlete of these games. 2.15.49 being a National Age Grade Record for 14-year-olds cementing this.

And very capable of breaking the 2.19.56 record of Feiza Lenton in the finals.

Tara father Ringo has indicated that Tara will focus on 800 for 2017 Palarong Pambansa and try to break the 2.12.55 Palaro Record of Jieann Calis set in 2015 at Tagum.

While her sister Samantha will focus on swimming.

While Tara has 3 Golds in the 800, 1500, 3000m.

And other athletes in Archery and Swimming had 5 golds.

These athletes did not surpass Batang Pinoyor Palaro records let alone age grade records. Also climbing to 4 golds was Jason Jabol of Dasmarinas.

This report will solely focus on Athletics.

;

Tara Borlain 3rd Gold in 1500

2017 Batang Pinoy
Tara Borlain far Left with some kids taking a photo with her

Adding on to her 2.15.5 run Tara Borlain ended up running a slower than expected 5 min 07.00. Perhaps due to fatigue.

I had expected she would go 4 min 45 to 4 min 49. But the 800 undoubtedly took a lot out of her. 

However the third gold for Borlain.

She should really focus on 400 speed for 800 and 1500, as her 3000 times are not as competitive.

Going for a Palaro record may require fewer events or even just running the 800 at the Palaro which will also be held here again at Vigan.

Meanwhile in the 200m Jason Jabol of Dasmarinas City clocked 22.85 secs, the fastest time

by a 15-year-old Filipino of all time.

This is below the 23.01 Batang Pinoy record set by his training partner Veruel Verdardero in the 2016 Batang Pinoy Finals last year.

Jabol has to clock this mark in the final, he has also 2018 to still be eligible for the Batang Pinoy, that’s if the PSC doesn’t cancel it.

Jabol also helped his team win the 4x100m capturing his 4th gold.

“Gusto ko pong tulungan ang pamilya ko kaya nagpupursige po ako para manalo,” said the son of a carpenter and plain housewife from Camarines Norte.

Overall

The Overall Champion in all sports was Baguio City with 49 golds, they defeated last years

Luzon team champion Quezon City.

  1. Baguio City 49 Golds, 45 Silver, 44 Bronze
  2. Laguna 34 Golds, 20 Silver, 26 Bronze
  3. Pangasinan 33 Golds, 28 Silver, 24 Bronze
  4. Dasmarinas City 26 Golds, 13 Silver, 31 Bronze
  5. Quezon City 25 Golds, 21 Silver, 19 Bronze

Swimmer Samantha Therese Coronel was also going for her fifth gold in relay events. She earlier triumphed in the girls 15-under 50m butterfly, 100m and 200m and 50m backstroke events

Batang Pinoy Philippines Dasmariñas Boy Jarbol does Double in Vigan

Article by Andrew Pirie

ATFS Statistician

From Media various sources

2017 Batang Pinoy Jason Jabol

;2017 Batang Pinoy Philippines Dasmariñas boy Jason Jabol lands hard on the sand en route to winning the gold in the boys’ long jump in the Luzon leg of the Batang Pinoy meet. He also took the gold in the 100m dash. JOEY MENDOZA

;

Oct 25, 2017, Vigan – The  Batang Pinoy Luzon Leg was held in Vigan which will serve as a dress rehearsal for the Palarong Pambansa 2018 to be held next year.

Jason Jabol, 14 (Nov 7, 2002, as per Batang Pinoy 2016 Entries) of Dasmariñas. 11.35 100m and a few minutes later 6.18m in the Long Jump Two Golds.

Furthermore, Jabol won the Long Jump with his first jump of three attempts to make it to the top 8.

Then he went straight to the 100 dash. Jabol is originally from Buhal, Can Marines Del Sur originally.

Jabol has already represented the Philippines, back in March he took a silver medal for the Philippines in the SEA Youth Long Jump in Ilagan, Isabella finishing 4th. (given 6.99m but this mark is invalid, due to bad measuring and is actually 5.99m in Sea Youth Champs).

Jabol will be turning 15 in a few weeks so his Age grade mark is compared to 15-year-olds.

His time of 11.35 is listed as an Age Grade Record, Veruel Verdadero ran 10.95 (+4.1) and 10.8 hand time last year in Batang Pinoy at the same age.

;

“I fouled my last attempt because I was already feeling numbness and cramps in my legs,” said Jabol, the ninth of 10 children by carpenter father Dionisio and housewife mother Rosemarie, in Filipino.

;

Also, he will help his team in the 4×100 and 4×400 later in the games.

Most noteworthy is that Jabol is a student at Emilio Aguinaldo HS in Cavite is the training partner of Palaro Champion 100-200-400 Champion Veruel Verdadero.

;

De Ocampo Twins

While two twins also from Cavite Charmaine and Charlaine Deocampo both 14 also took to the track.

Furthermore, the pair were part of the Power House 4×400 of Cavite that broke the Palarong Pambansa record last April in Antique.

At Vigan, Charlaine, 14 won the 400 Hurdles in 67.99.

While she won the gold compared to her twin Charmaine, Charlaine admitted the former is a better athlete than her.

 ;

“She’s better than me,” said Charlaine of Charmaine, who won three elementary golds in the 2015 Tagum Palaro compared to the former’s two.

;

Charmaine however perhaps with the wrong event choice was 11th in the 3000m. This was won by Tara Borlain a 14-year-old Grade 9 St. Pauls Pasig student.

That ran well for DLSU during the weekly relays. And was 8th in the 1500 and 3000 athletes last Palarong Pambansa.

Borlain clocked 10:58.84. Most noteworthy this was a big improvement on Borlain PB of 11:16.8 at the Palarong Pambansa.

While it was the first Batang Pinoy gold for Borlain, who started in triathlon where she and elder sister Sam had celebrity status as Alaska IronKids champions.

And could win more as she is scheduled to compete in four more events including her pet 800m and 1500m.

2017 Batang Pinoy
Tara Borlain with her father and coach Body Building Celebrity Ringo Borlain. Tara made the switch from Triathlon to Track and Field recently.
;
“As always, I expect to give my best in my events and I have to make sure of the time and not the positioning and today I got a personal best,” said Borlain, who was accompanied by former celebrity bodybuilding champion Ringo who is her father, trainer, and coach all rolled into one.

;

While hours later, Tara went to the nearby pool area where she cheered for Sam.

Also, Laura Jeante Wangkay of Laguna won the girls the walks.  Most noteworthy is the daughter of former national training pool athlete Jonah Genilza, a former ASEAN University Games champion in 400m.

**It Seems the PSC has changed the format of Batang Pinoy back to 15 years and under after allowing a 16-18 age category last year in the Finals.

PSC Plans to Scrap Batang Pinoy Next Year

October 13, 2017

Scrap Batang Pinoy

PSC Plans to Scrap Batang Pinoy Next Year, Is this Good for the Country?

While It came to my attention a few weeks from a tip-off that the PSC was planning to scrap the Batang Pinoy.

So I found this hard to believe but was advised to not post anything until information became available after October 3.

In conclusion, no further information was provided.

So after 10 days it now safe to post, while in the future this grace period seems a bit too long.

Similarly, I read in Balita that the plans to Scrap Batang Pinoy next year will push through.

My sources told me weeks ago a meeting was held between PSC and DepEd.

After that, the fund for BP will be diverted to coaches’ technical training and education.

However, the PSC also feels that BP is just a duplication of Palaro. Hence nothing is cast in stone, but this could be the last staging of the BP.

Now it seems like it will be based on the recent quote from Balita.

In my own opinion, I do not think the Batang Pinoy is similar or intended to be too similar to the Palarong Pambansa. I’m not saying the Batang Pinoy instead of Palaro. But both are equally beneficial.

;

  1. From 2011-2015 the Batang Pinoy saw exponential growth showing it was a Successful Program.
    1. 2011 2250 participants
    2. 2012 4397 participants (195% increase)
    3. 2013 7546 participants (171% increase)
  2. The Batang Pinoy is supposed to be for kids 13-15 to prepare them for the Palarong Pambansa which is 13-18. The PSC admin changed the age limit to 13-17 in 2016 which in turn made it more similar to the age range at the Palaro. Is a 13-year-old physically able to compete with an 18-year-old?
  3. There were a lot more clinics and seminars available for anyone to join. Whereas with the DEPED usually teachers are front lined or prioritized in these clinics and seminars at Palaro.
  4. Sports not played at the Palaro were available at Batang Pinoy. All of the below except DanceSport, Rugby, and Pencak Silat are Olympic Sports. However, 7s Rugby and Pencat are played frequently at SEA Games. So its important we also give these sports the chance to become part of our national syllabus of events.
    1. Weight Lifting
    2. DanceSport instead of Gymnastics
    3. Karatedo
    4. Pencak Silat
    5. Cycling
    6. Judo
    7. Rugby
    8. Triathlon
    9. Wrestling
  5.  Anyone can Join the Batang Pinoy even kids who are ‘Homeschooled’ or not going to school.
  6. Palaro is a school knock out competition where only 2 athletes per region can represent each event and teams are limited to 12 in elementary or 15 in secondary per region. In some regions, the top 3 in an event may come from that event. So it encourages more participation and bigger numbers at Batang Pinoy
  7. The power was put in the hands of the LGU for selection. With athletes representing the LGU, they come from. Giving more pride in local sports. A lot of the time athletes from provinces end up competing for NCR or Calabarzon who come from Mindanao. But in Batang Pinoy, they compete for their home LGU from which they originally come from.

I could go on all day about the benefits and opportunities this program brings to Philippine Sport having frequently been invited as a Researcher and Analyst for this said event during my stint with the Philippine Sports PSC (Philippine Sports). In the sense, it engages learning and knowledge sharing in a more sports carnival-like atmosphere.

Better to get Rid of Milo

To Chairman Ramirez,

What doesn’t make any sense is removing an event such as Batang Pinoy which has high attendance and more room for growth.

Palaro has a lot of attendance also. However, we do have 3 multi-events targetted for kids. Palaro, Batang Pinoy, and Milo.

And if you include the Children’s Games there is now 4.

The event that is the weakest link here is the Milo Little Olympics.

Which is now nothing more than a glorified exhibition/ barangay game. Numbers are dwindling.

In Mindanao Cagayan De Oro always insists on hosting this event despite providing a substandard track oval which has no rubber surface.

Despite there being an 8 lane standard rubberized track oval at Xavier University 10 minutes away.

The organizer hasn’t taken the initiative to use the better facility.

Milo this year due to the Marawi incident made many teams stay clear of the Milo event and saw numbers plummet.

If Milo is to survive in Mindanao other cities must be given the opportunities to host. It’s not fair the Cagayan De Oro always hosts the event when other places are willing to.

;

Suggestions

  1. Milo should be removed if one children’s meet has to go
  2. Batang Pinoy should go back to 15 and below age grade to make it less similar to Palaro and to reduce numbers making it easier to manage
  3. The Children’s Games and Batang Pinoy can be merged and incorporated to make it more manageable and benefit more kids.

Dec 9, 2016

2016 Batang Pinoy
Pranisa

a

In the thrilling fourth day of the Batang Pinoy.

A very big 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 went onto 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 of 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.

Who only due to a last-minute appeal to PATAFA was 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 however 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 set 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 with Limos next year.

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.

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

Nov 30, 2016 

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. from last year will remain as the 13-15 record.

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

Veruel has already represented the Philippines at least once in a southeast Asian age-grade meet and also 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 even 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 who timed 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 from attempting to run 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 of last year it was not counted as it was wind-aided, another time in semis was faster with 12.39 was also wind-aided.

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 new discovery 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.

Very happy to see some of my former workmates such as Quiel Moran move onto better positions in government.

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 budget of the province was 10 Million pesos but more assistance came from PSC.

Mr. Gulanes also highlighted they started with 21 billeting schools for athletes but they were requesting assistance from neighboring towns to cope with the unexpected high turn out of athletes.

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

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 they 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 who 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 weights 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 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

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

Coach Junasa appreciates this as his sports science application to Jeremiah and the smaller group is really something that a coach who is 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 off 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 Cotez.

He seemed not too concerned about competing internationally at this age 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 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).

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

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

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 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 so far in the 13-15 Girls 100m Dash.

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

2016 Batang Pinoy – Schedule Athletics & Notes

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 elegation 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 you will have a lot more competitions in the future.

I’m very thankful for the continuation of 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, and Zamboanga Del Sur sports academy our 110% behind the development of Grassroots Athletics in the Philippines.

The Batang Pinoy is now overseen by PSC Commissioner Celia Hicarte-kiram 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.

As Swimming does have a 13 and under division.

It is obviously not the PSC who applied this rule as they would have applied 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 over the years that the Batang Pinoy is a very good program.

I urge the next administration that comes into continuing this legacy that was 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 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 originally 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 for 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 which is for kids 18 and below.

Athletes from the Batang Pinoy in athletics such as Karen Janario (Leyte) and Jerry Belibestre (Bacolod) have since then 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 also was selected to compete in Russia.

Here are some trends I want to share

  1. The Numbers in all sports are increasing exponentially each year
  2. The three athletes mentioned above and in a lot of sports are coming from a range of different places not all of them are from the private schools in Manila.
  3. Records are 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 hard-working staff of the PSC 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.

The PNG according to the PSC Website will be temporarily scheduled 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.

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

Interestingly to note is 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 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, but now a 13 year old competes against a 17 year old.

Now the age grading is exactly 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.

As I have a big day ahead.

This was the first time I had been in Bacolod since I first came here to play the National Games back in 2011.

It was a memorable moment for me. I placed second in the Men’s 100m Dash Final at 27 years of age.

A last-minute decision by the organizers allowed the event to be open to any athletes as well including non-qualifiers.

PSC Unveils 2014 Batang Pinoy Road Map (Oct 15,2014)

2014 POC / PSC / NSA /BP

A Meeting was called with represents from most of the NSA’s. Present in some cases there was a coach rather than an executive representing the NSA. The meeting was presided over by PSC Commissioner Jolly Gomez. The floor was open with all questions being answered throughout the presentation.

The following legs of the Batang Pinoy in 2014 held at Kalibo, Naga with the finals in Bacolod. With the Pagadian leg already finished.

Commissioner Gomez vision here was to spread the sport and recruitment areas for NSAs to as many places as possible to expand the scope of identification of talents for Philippine Sport.

He highlighted it was additional support for NSA. Not a complete substitute as NSA can still hold their own national championships also.

The expansion of the Batang Pinoy and National Games programs Commissioner Gomez had revived back in 2011. Stated it helps all NSA expand their grass root programs. And provides an opportunity for growing NSA spread the interest in their sports via clinics.

Batang Pinoy and Regional National Games held at the same time but at different locations. With the National teams exempted from regional rounds but not playing in the finals.

Gomez also stated a good way to tap talent for some sports might be involving PRISAA/SCUAA members who have very limited meets in a year.

In regards to clinics, it could also expand into a Regional Coaching Program similar to the system which Thailand has.

It was also stated that if budgets were not used for international meets they can either go into the purchase of equipment or clinics.
