Pinoyathletics.info conducted an online interview with newly-crowned UAAP 100m Women’s Champion Jeremiah Malonzo.

The pint-sized Malonzo took the UAAP 100m in the most emphatic victory over powerhouse UST 2015 Champion Eloiza Luzon, with last year’s champion Karen Janario well back in 5th place.

Malonzo’s time of 12.21 was a big improvement on her personal best. And she also secured a bronze in 25.31 in the 200m behind Janario and Luzon of UST.

To my knowledge, in 20 years, UP has failed to win a medal in the Women’s Sprints at UAAP.

Malonzo, who was only twelfth place last year, was an unexpected champion. Malonzo is coached by Jolo Rivera of the University of the Philippines.

We had an interview with the very down-to-earth and humble girl via Facebook.
