Pinoyathletics SprinTopia Cagayan De Oro Leg Report
Athletes used rubber shoes because the oval was a concrete (standard 400m) oval and not a dirt one. And because of this, to make it comparable to athletes in other parts of the countries using Spikes on rubber tracks. Scaling factors of -.5 (100m) -1.0 (200m) and -2.0 (400m) were used for adjusted times.
100 Meter Mens A Race: Dead Heat
In one of the Races that truly make the sport of Athletics a spectacle. Janry Ubas, the SEA Games Bronze medalist in Decathlon, found himself in the grip of a deadly three-way battle. Nevertheless, the 27-year-old national team member ran well for his opening race outside his 11.10 PB from the 2015 Singapore SEA Games and should be on a path to his 4th SEA Games appearance.
One of the beautiful things is you never know what talent might pop up. And that was in the form of 18-year-old John Araneta. The bleached blonde teenager part of the treasure chest of athletes is coming out of Bukidnon. Challenged the veteran Ubas to the line. In a race that was so close, not even the Photo Finish could pick a winner as both of their heads went over the line simultaneously. Ubas training partner Clint Neri also helped himself to a PB just .02 seconds behind in 11.26.
I must stress the importance as I did with the weekly relays of pre-planned races. Athletes improve the most running against Athletes of the same or slightly better ability.

Pama Gaps her Opponents
The Challenge of getting a field of getting women involved in Philippine Sports is not an easy task. And the virtual events are a great way to get more young women involved in Athletics. However, at Pinoyathletics SprinTopia Cagayan De Oro, it was a fully booked 8 lanes.
The 5’7 Lianne Pama (Misamis Oriental) and the Palarong Pambansa 2019 Silver medalist were 100 and 200. And the joint winner of the Pinoyathletics 60m Dash for Cash in December. That stormed to the win in a bolt-like manner winning by 1.12 seconds. For the rest, it really was a battle for second place. 15-year-old Kimmy Jean Jaylo, the youngest in the field, was the surprise second placer with her training partner Rogylle Cugdan the NMRAA 2020 Champion in 3rd place. Jaylo would win the 200m in 29.08. At the same time, Samantha Victor took the 400m in 1:15.94.
