Cerah Moren aims for the 2015 World Youth Champs in Javelin (July 2, 2015)
Special thanks to Thad Moren for providing background info and stats. At the same time, we continue our write-ups on Fil-Heritage Track and Field athletes. We have covered Kyla and Kayla Richardson, Krizia Apelar, Sarah Vitug, Caleb Monticalvo, Julio Alorro, and Jonelle Halog. The next feature is on a much younger emerging athlete.
Cerah Moren was born on 22nd July 1999. And she is the daughter of Thad Morenn (from Finland, a US Citizen of the United States) and Fe Nacua, from Daanbatyan (Northern Cebu Province). At the same time, she has dual citizenship and recently renewed her Filipino passport.
Also, Morenn was the US Champion for her age, having thrown 38.48m with the senior 600-gram javelin. At the same time, this performance ranked her sixth on the Philippine Ranking list against seniors. And third amongst the juniors. Furthermore, the junior list is headed by National Record Holder Evalyn Palabrica (45.63m). At the same time, High school record holder Stephanie Cimatu (40.18m) was second. Most noteworthy is that the performance also places Cerah seventh on the junior all-time list for the Philippines.
As a result, Moren beat 39 competitors her age to win her age group’s US National title.
While Moren, who weighs 48kg, undergoes weight workouts. It also has power cleaned 54kg and squatted 112kg+.
Hence Cerah is aiming to represent the Philippines at the 2015 World Youth Championships in Colombia. However, as of now, the 2013 standard for the Javelin is 46.00m. Most noteworthy is that Cerah would have to break the existing Filipino Junior Record to qualify.

AGE GRADE RECORD FOR EMERGING CERAH Moren
Fil-Heritage development athlete 15-year-old Cerah Morenn threw the javelin a personal best distance of 38.74m (600 grams adult-sized javelin) at a meet in Turlock, California.
Cerah Morenn, who holds the best age grade records for ages 10-14, surpassed the former record for 15-year-olds of Stephanie Cimatu 36.64m (but with a lighter 500-gram javelin).
Cerah Morenn also established a new age grade record for 15 years old’s in Hammer 25.63m (no previous mark).
Cerah Morenn, eligible to compete for the Philippines, having presented a philippine passport to the PATAFA, should be considered a Moren developmental athlete as throwers tend to peak in their late 20s or early 30s.
Cerah Moren, who turns 14 later this year, had a big improvement in the Discus. However, Moren, a promising Javelin Thrower, threw the 1kg Discus 34.03m (converted from yards) to 3rd at the St Joaquin High school meet in Turlock. In conclusion, Morenn’s performance eclipsed the age-grade best for Filipina aged 14, previously held by Palaro Record Holder Maika De Oro of Bacolod 32.62m.
However, the performance was also better than the 15-year-old age grade record of 31.49m held by De Oro. The record for 16-year-olds is 37.79m, set in 1962 by National Record Holder Josephine Dela Vina.
Morenn also threw 30.70m at the Stanislaus Invitational, which is considerably below her personal best of 38.22m.
