Century Tuna IM 70.3 (1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21km run)
Subic Bay, Olongapo
March 8, 2015

Congratulations to the male PRO Aussies for dominating the podium at the recently held inaugural Century Tuna IronMan 70.3 at scenic Subic Bay here in the Philippines.

My hats off to champ Timothy Reed who celebrated his birthday a day before the actual race. Very fitting post-birthday gift for mighty Tim!

As for the female PRO so happy for British Parys Edwards who this time took the top spot.; I met her two weeks ago for Challenge PH. She only placed third there. What a great comeback!

Top 3 MALE PRO finishers:
Timothy Reed (AUS)  3:51:59
Mitch Robbins (AUS) 3:55:48
Josh Amberger (AUS) 3:57:12

Top 3 FEMALE PRO finishers:
Parys Edwards (GBR) 4:18:13
Beth Gerdes (USA)  4:24:05
Dimity Lee Duke (AUS) 4:27:39

So blessed to also see Luke McKenzie, Belinda Granger, Katy Duffield, Tim Green in action among others.

However, too bad due to dehydration and back pains respectively  heavy TRI favorites Caroline Steffen and Craig Alexander missed racing but their presence were more than enough. Perhaps very soon they can see action again here in thePI.

For the local elites, congrats to Banjo Norte and Monica Torres for bringing home the coveted Top 1 spots! These guys are regulars up there in the podium.

Congrats to Century Tuna VP and General Manager Greg Banzon for a successful IM 70.3. More to come po! Kudos to Fred Uytengsu of Sunrise Events for masteing the art of organizing major TRI races. Thank you as well to Lhen Hasal, Mervin, Lawrence and Hannah of Ogilvy PR for the media assistance.

I’m sooo looking forward to the next TRI events happening only here in my PI where it’s really more fun to race! ☺☺
