Chicano secures bronze medal in Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships
Chicano reached the podium of the world’s largest duathlon race after returning on the same punishing course where he won silver medal in men’s triathlon during the 2017 Southeast Asian Games. ``Overall, it was a good race for me. This is a great buildup for the SEA Games late this year,’’ said Chicano, who finished third overall in the men’s elite category with a clocking of two hours, 43 minutes and 25 seconds. Frenchman Antony Costes ruled the 10-kilometer run, 60km cycling and 10km run event in 2:41.23 and Thomas Bruins of the Netherlands checked in second overall at 2:42.04. ``To stand on the medal podium in an international race with some of the toughest and seasoned duathletes is something that our country should really be proud of,’’ said Go For Gold godfather Jeremy Go. Apart from triathlon, Go For Gold is also a staunch supporter of national athletes from cycling, sepak takraw, skateboarding, wrestling and skateboarding aside from its basketball teams in the PBA D-League and Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.
