Clinton Kingsley Bautista claimed the third gold in Athletics for the Philippines. The only Filipino male to ever win this event made it 2 for 2. Despite not breaking 14 seconds at any event leading to SEA Games. CKB led from the gun, and by the time it came to the last hurdle, everyone else was diving for the other places.

His mark of 13.79 erased the Philippine National record and was just outside the game’s record of 13.69 set in 2015 by the Great Jamras Rittidet of Thailand a 4x SEA Games Champion. The former national record of the Philippines of 13.91 was set by Patrick Unso.

Clinton Kingsley Bautista CKB First-Ever Gold for the Philippines in 110 Hurdles at SEA Games

Dec 24, 2019

Clinton Kingsley Bautista (CKB) took a historic gold for the Philippines in the Men’s 110 Hurdles at the 2019 SEA Games.

  • CKB win was the first-ever Gold won by a Filipino athlete in this event.
  • CKB mark was just .06 off the National record of Patrick Unso set 2 years ago in 2017.
  • Clinton dethroned the reigning SEA Games Champion Rayzam Shah Sofian of Malaysia most dramatically. In contrast, both men clocked 13.97, but Clinton narrowly won in the lean.

However, CKB has steadily risen through the ranks of Philippine Athletics. Having finished 8th in his first SEA Games in 2015 at 110 Hurdles in Singapore. Then finished with the bronze 2 years later in Malaysia SEA Games in 2017. In 2019, the 27-year-old Clinton climbed to the top of the SEA Athletics world, claiming the Philippines’ Gold.

However, Rayzam Shah Sofian, 31, who had run 13.82 this year in March, was narrowly beaten to silver. The 27-year-old CKB improved on his 14.14 PB from 2019. The Other Filipino entry Alvin Vergel finished 8th and improved his PB from 14.56 to 14.46.

CKB Progression below as follows

2019 13.97 -0.2 New Clark City (PHI) 09 DEC
2018 14.14 -0.1 Taipei City (TPE) 25 MAY 2018

Is Clinton an Import?

We will share an interesting video from our friend Talking Chinoy.

As several people questioned if Clinton is, in fact, an import.

Based on his appearance, and will clear this matter up in the below video.

I know that facts or the truth may sometimes hurt, but it is what it is. People are just quick to judge and be deceived by how someone might look without even doing any fact-finding of their own.

Also, there’s a notion that all dark-skinned athletes are born strong.

That’s not entirely true as CKB had to start at the bottom and climb his way onto the top as other runners do; they believe in themselves and hold on to their dreams that someday they’ll bring pride to their country.

Korea Open Athletics Trackster Bautista bags silver in the 2018 Korean Open

Hurdler Clinton Bautista emerges as the only Filipino medalist as two others fail to crack the top 3.  

While Bautista clocked 14.29 seconds to finish behind Indonesian winner Rio Maholtra, who won in 14.22.

The 25-year-old Bautista took the bronze in 14.15 seconds in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games, while Maholtra, 24, did not even figure back then (Maholtra did not participate; I think he ran in 2015 but didn’t medal there either).

Bronze for now clean-shaven Clinton (right side).
