National Junior Record Holder Jose Jerry Belibestre. Soared to the South East Asian Season lead in the Long Jump for 2018. The 20-year-old leaped 7.56m at the Negros First Monthly Athletic Championships in Bacolod earlier today.
Awesome and well done to your hard-working coaches Miguel Arca and Addy Arca, #1 in The Philippines for 2018, 3 months into the year, and #1 in SEA 2018 Rankings. Good improvement from the National Junior Record Holder will hopefully claim the national title in his first year in May. 7.26 in PRISAA opening and then 30 cm seasons best.
For the record, Jerry had 4 jumps as per the new rules of the IAAF. State 4 jumps only. Jerry progressed on each of his four jumps, hitting 7.34m, 7.36m, 7.43m, and 7.56m.
Jerry currently leads more experienced jumpers SEA Games Bronze Medallist Janry Ubas (7.38m), SEA Games Decathlon Champion Aries Toledo (7.28m), and NCAA Record Holder Julian Reem Fuentes (7.22m) in the first 3 months of 2018. Some of them will be going to the Singapore open in April.
The performances slide jerry into #10 on the All-Time Lists for Philippine Athletics.
