Chicano tops TRI-Factor Duathlon tilt

Hard work, dedication and strategies paid off for John Chicano and Phoebe Kee as they topped the inaugural TRI-Factor Asian Series Run-Bike-Run 2019 National Duathlon Championship held this past Sunday in Clark.

For the Elite Male (Standard Distance 10 Km run – 40 Km bike – 5 Km run) title, Chicano led all the way from run 1 with no letup in the grueling 40-km bike and to cross the finish line in 1 hour, 58 minutes and 24 seconds almost a minute ahead of surging Emmanuel Commendador (1:59:21) and Singapore’s mien Mau Lim (1:59:33).

Among the ladies in the event organized by TRI-Factor Philippines and co-presented by Clark Development Corporation, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority and the Triathlon Association of the Philippines and supported by Cignaland and Oakley, Kee of Singapore coasted to a surprisingly easy victory, clocking 2:20:53. She defeated former junior champion Jelsie Sabado and national standout Mirasol Abad, who finished 2nd and 3rd timing 2:22:15 and 2:25:06, respectively.

Other Standard Distance champions declared were Chrissa Borja and Carl Gutierrez (20-29), Jayline Balatibat and Dan Concepcion, jr. (30-39), Martes Christabel and Rene Tayag (40-49) and Jojo Macalintal (Male 50-above).
