Hence she wasn’t able to attend.

So now, at Chabot training with coach Craft, she is being revived.

While is keen to track her performances and Filipino track athletes opt to study with the benefits of competing in the United States.

While Canete started competing as a 12-year-old from Ateneo Cebu, she was highly motivated to continue her athletic career. She was almost prepared to walk away from the sport a year ago.

Yet, she decided to take the opportunity that presented itself at Chabot.

While in Cebu, her coach was primarily sprinter Anthony Santillan and National Junior record holder Daniel Noval for a short period of time.


Canete reports she is recovering well.

And her new coach has given her a very well-structured program.

Also involving lots of single-leg isolation type exercises to help strengthen her hamstrings.

And legs and Core Exercises for stability. 

Also, following the advice of a PT.

So she is now able to train without too much discomfort.

And it will be interesting to see how she progresses in the US Collegiate season shortly.

While she may even be focussing on Hurdles as well.
