Abstract: Each of the ‘about 30-45second’ Philippines Athletics Sports Trivias were intentionally made simple, understandable to target even non-runners/athletes/track and field athletes (in other words, the masses)  to read and see the following.

While neither of the unique ideas, information gathered is intended to be owned, claimed as my discovery. Citations for each (as much as possible and available) are necessary.

Philippines Athletics Trivia questions

Philippines Athletics Trivias

After we have had, I don’t usually post this… Coach Rose Home workouts, Best thing coach, said, Beach photos, and now athlete photos. I see people are getting very bored, but at least young people show they can obey the home quarantine rules in place. To alleviate or add to the boredom whatever way we look at it. Trivia Game is how it works. I will ask a question. Then whoever answers correctly gets to ask the next question and so on.

Track and Field Trivia Who held the Philippine National Record in the Men’s 100m Before Eric Cray broke it?

Philippines Athletics Trivias

Ralph Waldy Soguilon. He clocked 10.45 in the United States in 2007. Which stood as the Philippine Record until Eric Cray broke it with a time of 10.33 in 2014. Answered by Ninoy Marayag.

Nino Ramirez set the meet record way back in 1936 at the infamous Berlin Olympics. Ramirez was the most dominant Long Jumper of the 1930s. He was so dominant it took 68 years for his national record to be broken in 2004—Ramirez, who had leaped 7.65m. The record was finally broken in 2004 by Henry Dagmil, who leaped out 7.83m. Dagmil, who was dropped from the national team for a poor showing at the 2003 SEA Games, created arguably the greatest catalyst comeback in Philippine Track and Field History.

Ruperto Evangelista, who became the greatest coach in Philippine Track and Field History, played second fiddle in the jumps to Ramirez. Ramirez, a UST student, leaped a meet record in the inaugural 1938 UAAP, which stood until Benigno Marayag broke it in the 2000s.

Can you Name the 6 Men from the Philippines who were SEA Games Champions in the 400 Meters?

Isidro Del Prado’s best time of 45.57, even though shy of the 45.30 A Standard, is still very comfortably below the 45.90 B Standard. Del Prado made it past the first round of the Olympics when he participated. To date, 45.57 is still faster than quite a few countries’ national records, including New Zealand, which has a national record of 46.09.

Isidro Del Prado (3 Times), Ernie Candelario (twice), Jimar Aing, Julius Nierras, Archand Bagsit, and Trenten Beram. Isidro Del Prado went onto coach Candelario, Aing and Nierras. (answered by Nino Marayag)
