Filipino duathletes eye golden double  

  • SEAG-Duathlon

FILIPINO duathletes will try to duplicate the huge success of their triathlete counterparts when they see action Monday at the Subic Baywalk inside the Subic Freeport Zone.

Jerwyn Banatao, Joey delos Reyes, Monica Torres and Chelsea Sabado will plunge into action boosted by the gold medal sweep scored by John Chicano and Kim Mangrobang Sunday.

Triathlon chief Tom Carrasco is banking on Banatao and Delos Reyes to deliver golden performances.

"I'm pretty confident that either of them (Banato and Delos Reyes) winning the gold and silver in the men's duathlon," said Carrasco, adding: "Torres is my bet in the women's division."

Duathlon coach Marco Vilog said his charges had been training hard for the past four months in the run-bike-run event around the New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac.

“They practiced well and they’re inspired by the success of our triathletes,” said Vilog.

Ryan Mendoza was the last Filipino to rule the men’s duathlon race in the 2007 Thailand SEA Games.PR
