EMERGING TRIATHLETE -- Local triathlete Maynard Pecson took home the overall title in the recent Go for Golf Sprint in Subic while other triathletes from Baguio and Benguet were podium finishers in their respective age groups. -- Austine Morfe

Young triathletes from Baguio and Benguet showed their mettle in the Go For Gold Sprint in Subic recently.

Maynard Pecson of Go for Gold Baguio took the overall title in the triathlon event on Oct. 27, which gathered young triathletes from all over the country to look for the country’s future international triathlon champions.

The 24-year-old Pecson, who is currently on a gap year from school, finished the race with a total time of one hour and 10 minutes.

He led the winners after going through 750 meters of swimming, biking 20 kilometers, and running uphill for five kilometers to reach the finish line. 

Pecson was joined by his teammates, who also earned top spots in their respective age categories.

Grade nine Baguio City National High School student Daniel Nazarro topped the 15 to 19 male age category while Angelo Quitlong, a grade 10 athletics scholar of BCNHS special program for sports, landed third place in the same category.

Cyclist George Alcido surprisingly earned the third spot in the 20 to 24 age category. This was Alcido’s first try at an open water triathlon race, according to group coach Jet Ramos.

On the distaff side, city top runner Erica Bulatao bagged first place in the 15 to 19 female age category.

Eliz Vin Quintela joined the BAE 5i50 race and finished first place in the 15 to 19 male category with a time of two hours and 23 minutes.

The Sunrise Sprint is the shorter distance race of the Black Arrow 5i50 event. The Black Arrow 5i50 follows the standard or Olympic-distance triathlon event.

Triathlete spouse Jet and Lou Ramos, who conceptualized the Baguio-Benguet triathlon grassroots program, coaches the young athletes, as they aim to help them mold their future through triathlon.
