Samantha Limos (Univ Cebu) took the Golds in the Secondary Girls 100 (13.0), 200 (26.6) and 400 (1.03.2). Albeit the performances were far from the bests of Limos 11.99 which set the Palaro Record and 25.3 which saw her also win the Gold last April in Legazpi City. Limos began her season again with coach Ilde Banzon after having had her first international meet and medal at the Children of Asia where she took bronze in the 100m Dash.
Limos now 14 is preparing for the Batang Pinoy in Tagum at the end of November where she currently shares the meet record at 12.47 set last year in Bacolod and also won the 200-meter dash. The meet record for the 200m is 25.82 by Karen Janario.
