The second of two Philippine National Indoor records fell in the first month of 2018. Fil-Heritage Triple Jumper Marisa Kwiatkowski won the University of Washington Preview with a leap of 12.55m on January 13. The mark surpassed the old mark she had set at the Penn Relays last January of 12.45m.
Kwiatkowski is on an athletic scholarship at Stanford and has held a Philippine Passport since 2014. She currently holds all 4 Philippine Records in Women’s Triple Jump the National Record (12.68) and National Junior Record (12.63), National Indoor (12.55) and National Junior Indoor (12.23). Kwiatkowski is yet to represent the Philippines or compete at the Philippine National Champs.
She was invited to join the Prestigious World University Games in Taipei last year but she begged off due to a long season. However, she is still like the last 2 SEA Games a long way from the SEA Games Bronze medal mark of 13.32m. The Philippines has never won the Women’s Triple Jump at SEA Games. I’m not even sure if they have even won a medal. She also placed 5th at the same University Preview meet in 5.58m in the Long Jump, Well off her 5.89m PB set 3 years ago.

29 May 2017
Fil-Heritage jumper Marisa Kwiatkowski, 20 broke the 13-year-old National Triple Jump Record of Olympian Marestella Torres. Also, Marisa has held a Filipino passport since 2014 coming through the PSC Fil-Heritage scouting program.
Playing in her first year of college. Kwiatkowski who represents Stanford leaped 12.68m (1.4), to place 26th at the NCAA Western Preliminary rounds.
However, she did not progress to the National Finals but in the meantime nabbed the Philippine National Record. In conclusion, the Top 12 qualified for the finals with 13.08m being 12th place. Chaquein Cook of Oregon had the best leap of 13.51m to lead the qualifiers to the Finals.
The Record was held by Marestella Torres who leaped 12.67m (-0.5) in 2004 by 1cm. While a big improvement hopefully this is just the beginning as 1cm is quite a small improvement in this event in 13 years. Also Kwiatkowski has the National Junior Record with 12.63m and National Indoor record at 12.45m.
It was only a matter of time for Kwiatkowski who had leaped a wind-aided 12.68m (+3.3 m/s) in April. Felyn Dolloso of Dasmarinas had leaped 12.69m last PRISAA but no wind gauge was present and the meet was unsanctioned. she took the season lead from Angel Carino 12.60m at the UAAP Championships. Kwiatkowski is looking at debuting in The Philippines at the World University Games in Taipei in August. In conclusion, she is a long way from the SEA Games bronze mark of 13.65m, the deadline for qualification for this event is July 1.
Meanwhile, her former club-mate Marissa Kwiatkowski competing for Stanford University leaped 12.25m just 1 cm away from her National Indoor and Junior National indoor record.
Another National Indoor Record Holder Marisa Kwiatkowski, 18 leaped 12.11m also at the same meet as Donovant and Eric Cray outside her Record of 12.26m set the other week.

Marisa holds a PB of 12.58m in this event but this was done last year before she obtained her Philippine passport in December of 2014.
Another target might be the long-standing Long Jump Junior Record of Elma Muros 6.11m set 30 years ago in 1985. Marisa has not done a long jump yet this year but her PB is 5.83m. She also clocked an 8.11 60m dash.
