Torres bucks stomach problem to win duathlon gold

  • SEAG-Duathlon

Asian elite champion Monica Torres sustained her energy despite an upset stomach to clinch the women’s duathlon on Monday at the Subic Bay Boardwalk.

Torres ruled the 10km run-40km bike-5km run after finishing in two hours, eight minutes and 44 seconds.

“Expected ko na malakas yung bike ko pero yung totoo naisuka ko lahat ng nutrition and gels ko,” said Torres.

“Malaking tulong po yung mga tao na sumusuporta kaya inisip ko nalang na I will not let them down,” she added.

The 3-time Powerman Asia Duathlon Champion was followed by Pareeya Sonsem of Thailand, who clocked 2:11:18.

Thi Phuong Trinh Nguyen of Vietnam delivered the first duathlon medal for her country by finishing with bronze medal in 2:14:20.

The run-bike-run event is returning to the SEA Games for the first time since the 2007 edition in Nakhon Ratchasima.PR
