About Pinoyathletics – Philippines Track and Field
Updates as of May, 2020
Just advising www.pinoyathletics.info has now finalized its transfer to its new faster server and is now accessible again to the Philippines. Please share this post. We had remarkable improvements in speed in terms of Google Page Speed and GTMetrix tests. Especially for mobile phones. In light of the COVID/Corona Virus epidemic. The need for mobile-friendly responsive websites is very much required.
Unfortunately, due to very slow internet speeds in the Philippines it was noted our home page loads in 1.4-1.8 sec in the US but in some parts of the Philippines, the same page takes 10 seconds, or 16 seconds without optimization.
However with necessary optimizations via Google Analytics for this month Pinoyathletics has seemed to have bounced back and his coping well with the COVID. Ad Revenues are at an all-time high earning more in a week than we have since the website started. We also have now got 22.5k followers on our Facebook Page, having exceeded 20,000 in late January. The Facebook Group has now grown to 8000. And we are looking at getting more trustworthy moderators to help handle the growth.
Also, we have an 80,000 strong mailing group base. That is why we advised Gyms and Road Race organizers we will not be giving out free advertising as obviously we have a large reach which will be worth investing in.

Five Years of Pinoyathletics.info
Pinoyathletics.info celebrates its 5th Birthday, started in 2012. Prior to this, we were Pinoyathletics.com at WordPress starting in 2011 before moving to wordpress.org. And prior to that in 2010, I first signed up for sports writing through the encouragement of Moriel ‘Yell’ Carreon, The Pinoymiler YUN OH!!!.
Today Pinoyathletics provides is a very reliable source of information, results, articles, and commentaries not just on Athletics but has branched out into different sports. Through my learning to appreciate and take interest in other sports during my two-year tenure in the
Philippine Sports Commission as Research Assistant to Commissioner Jolly Gomez.
We realized that by just focusing on athletics we were limiting our readership. It was thus that myself and co-founder Airnel Abarra took on two young writers. Joan Masangkay from Powerlifting and Kimberly Goloran a varsity athlete to help continue to mold the legacy of Pinoyathletics. We re very interested in taking on more writers if possible.
Through our joint efforts, Airnel and I covered all the Palarong Pambansa back to Lingayen in 2011. Providing the latest results, excellent photos and interviews with grass root athletes and coaches. We also covered National Open, National Games, Batang Pinoy, UAAP, NCAA, ASEAN School Games 2014 and even SEA Games 2015.
Pinoyathletics continues to grow as a media powerhouse in the Philippines. And today even rivals the major newspapers when it comes to reporting on sports news.
We would like to say that we are a truthful media outlet. And by that we have teeth and we do bite when we need to bite. Being truthful is not always going to be neutral but objective as we will justify our write-ups with factual evidence when need be.
We would like to thank our readers for years of continued support. And we promise to make several innovations and new exciting articles for our readers over the coming year/s. We welcome constructive feedback over [email protected]

Celebrating 3 Years of Pinoyathletics.info. Vote for Us
Pinoyathletics.info has and continues to be a popular media brand for The Philippine Athletics Community.
I originally got into blogging way back in 2010 when approached by Moriel Carreon who then asked me to write for him at Pinoymiler at the 2010 National Open back then I was still a very active sprinter.
I wrote for Pinoymiler.wordpress.com for two years. By 2012 I had decided to found my own blog which would be Pinoyathletics.wordpress.com and later pinoyathletics.com on the wordpress.com platform.
Eventually, in 2013 I decided to shift over to the WordPress.org platform due to its greater features and from then ‘Pinoyathletics.info’ was born.
I want to say that we offer a unique and priceless insight of data and reporting which over the years has helped build Pinoyathletics.info into a household name not just within the Philippine Athletics Community but also in the Bloggers Community, International Athletics
Community, and Philippine Sports Community and among our peers in the mainstream media. Pinoyathletics was recently listed in the Top 30 Sports Blogs in the Philippines.
A lot of young athletes have now grown up reading Pinoyathletics.info and I like to think fondly of the athletes and people we have helped over the years and played some minor role in helping shape their careers and the betterment of the sport of Athletics. It’s also inspirational to see young athletes becoming more motivated reading about our sports superstars. And then a spark being ignited for them to also follow a similar path. And continue the great legacy which is Philippine Athletics.
First Post was December 31, 2012, with “Happy New Year to our readers”
