SEA Games slots up for grab in Milo Marathon

Aside from the honor of conquering the country's biggest footrace, this year's King and Queen of the 42nd National Milo Marathon will get a chance to don the tri-colors in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. The 11-leg event in partnership with the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association will honor the men's and women's race champion with a slot in the Philippine team that will compete in the biennial meet to be held in the country November next year.  "Basta kung sinong mananalo dyan yun ang kukunin namin for the SEAG.

Eliud Kipchoge sets new world record in Berlin marathon win

BERLIN (AP) — Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge set a new marathon world record, winning the Berlin race in 2 hours, 1 minute and 39 seconds on Sunday. Organizers initially put Kipchoge's time at 2 hours, 1 minute and 40 seconds, but later reduced it by one second. The 33-year-old broke the previous world record set in Berlin by fellow Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 by 1 minute and 18 seconds. "I lack words to describe this day," Kipchoge said after becoming the first person to finish a marathon in less than 2 hours and 2 minutes. "They say you miss two times but you can't miss the third time," he said in reference to his two previous failed attempts to break the world record in Berlin. The Kenyan defended his 2017 title in the German capital, pulling ahead of other runners early on amid perfect conditions. Mild autumn temperatures and little to no wind gave the runners an advantage over last year, when rain slowed the race. Berlin debutant Amos Kipruto came second in 2 hours, 6 minutes and 23 seconds, followed by a third Kenyan, former world-record holder Wilson Kipsang, with 2 hours, six minutes and 48 seconds. Shogo Nakamura of Japan narrowly missed setting a new national record with a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes and 16 seconds. Gladys Cherono won the women's race in 2 hours, 18 minutes and 11 seconds, a new women's record for the Berlin marathon. The previous track record was set by Mizuki Noguchi of Japan 13 years ago. The 35-year-old Kenyan said she felt confident going into the race but wasn't sure she would beat favorite Tirunesh Dibaba. Dibaba came third behind fellow Ethiopian Rutia Aga......»»

ASIAN GAMES: Philippines looks to end 24-year medal drought in athletics

JAKARTA — If Eric Shawn Cray can just make a repeat performance of his semifinal running in the 400m hurdles of the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics, there is a big chance he might win the gold in the 18th Asian Games. Cray, whose pet event was originally set on Monday, will try to qualify first in the re-scheduled 400m hurdles at 11 a.m. on Sunday and hope to take it from there in an effort to win the Philippines’ first medal in the Asian Games in 24 years. The 29-year-old Cray ran the 400m hurdles of the Rio Olympics in a blistering 49.37 seconds, which if he did during the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, would have easily dislodged the 49.71 of gold medal winner, Bahrain’s Ali Khamis, who is defending his title here. And from the looks of it, the Filipino-American is in tip-top shape. The two-time 400m hurdles champion of the SEA Games (Myanmar and Singapore) is coming off a gold medal in the 400M hurdles of the 2017 Asian Athletics Championships. He was also the silver medalist in the 60M Run of the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games. “If everything goes right, many of our athletes can spring some surprises,” said Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association president Dr. Philip Ella Juico. Cray, who finished sixth with a 51.47 in the Incheon edition of the games, has improved since that performance. He had 50.04 in the World Championships in Beijing, China in 2015, before submitting a 49.07 during the 2016 World Challenge in Kawasaki, Japan, where he earned a silver. In the same World Challenge, this time in Madrid, Spain, also in 2016, Cray ran a scorching 48.98, his personal best, to likewise earn the silver, before his title-clinching 49.57 in the Asian Championships in Bhubaneswar, only last year. The last time the Philippines bagged an athletics’ medal of any color in the Asian Games was during the 1994 Hiroshima Asiad, courtesy of Elma Muros, whose 6.41-meter leap in the long jump competitions was worth a bronze. Aside from Cray, three more from the athletics’ team here plunge into action as marathoner Mary Joy Tabal, hurdler Clinton Bautista and long jumper Marestella Torres-Sunang get going. Tabal, the marathon queen of the 2017 Kuala Lumpur  SEA Games, starts the PH campaign for the day with the marathon at 6 a.m. “This is a special opportunity for Tabal to prove herself against the North Koreans, Japan, China and some of these middle eastern countries,” said Juico, “I don’t think she will be wanting in spirit. According to the report I got, she’s ready, she’s well-conditioned, she spent most of her time in Tuscany, Italy (training). We are hoping for the best as usual.” After Tabal, Bautista, the bronze medalist in the same Malaysia SEA Games, takes his turn as he tries to qualify in the 110M hurdles at 10 a.m. A four-time SEA Games long jump queen whose reign began in the Manila edition of the meet in 2005, Torres-Sunang makes what could be her last hurrah in these games as attempts to advance in the finals of the long jump competitions starting at 10:30 a.m. Meanwhile, SEA Games decathlon gold medalist Aries Toledo began his bid on a bright note as he placed second in the first event of his discipline, clocking 10.84 in the 100M behind Saudi Arabia’s AL QAREE Mohammed Jasem Al Qaree (10.77). He later ranked 4th in the high jump and eighth in the shotput. Newcomer Kristina Knott was scheduled in the 100M heats later in the day.  .....»»

PVL: Blockbusters force rubbermatch

Vice Co. kept its Finals hopes alive after surviving a marathon five set duel over Philippine Air Force, 25-22, 16-25, 25-23, 29-31, 17-15 to force a decider in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference best-of-three men's semifinals Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. JP Bugaoan unleashed 24 points built on 18 kills, five kill blocks and an ace to rally the Blockbusters back in the series. Game 3 is on Friday. With its back against the wall, Vice Co. came up on top after a furious race in the closing stretch of the fifth set to exact revenge on the Jet Spikers, who dealt the Blockbusters a four-set loss in the series opener last Sunday. Jude Garcia finished with 17 points while Paolo Pablico and Kim Malabunga registered 12 and nine points, respectively, for Vice Co., which weathered the 32-point explosion of Air Force hitter Bryan Bagunas. The National University recruit, who had 30 points in Game 1, rained down 27 attacks with four kill blocks and an ace while adding 16 excellent receptions and eight digs on floor defense. But Bagunas' effort as well as the 25 points of Fauzi Ismail and the 20 markers of Ranran Abdilla went down the drain. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP Season 80 Men’s Football: UP, UST look to remain unbeaten

MATCHES ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 18 (Rizal Memorial Football Stadium) 9:00 AM - NU vs. Adamson (Men’s) 1:30 PM - UST vs. NU (Men’s) 4:00 PM - UST vs. Atene (Men’s)   League-leading University of the Philippines tries to keep their spotless record intact when they take on Far Eastern University when the UAAP Season 80 Men’ Football tournament continues on Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. Coming off a dominant 4-1 win over Adamson University last Thursday, the surging fighting Maroons are looking to make it four for four against FEU on Sunday. King Miyagi and JB Borlongan have been the go-to-guys for the Maroons this season, each with four goals in their first three matches. After back-to-back losses to UST and DLSU, Season 79 runners-up FEU finally got their first point of the season a week ago when they managed to hold University of the East to a scoreless draw. It hasn’t been an easy start for the Tamaraws, who have been plagued with injuries and are trying to get back on track after making the finals last season. There will be a hint of revenge on the Maroons’ minds in this matchup, given that the last time UP and FEU shared the pitch, the Tams eliminated UP in the Season 79 semifinals. UP and FEU kick off at 1:30 PM.   Also looking to remain unbeaten this season are the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers, who’ll be facing a tough test when they take on the surging defending champions Ateneo Blue Eagles. After picking up back-to-back wins in their first two matches against FEU and Adamson, the Growling Tigers figured in their first draw of the season against National University. On the opposite end, the Blue Eagles have bounced back from their opening day loss by winning back-to-back matches, most recently against collegiate rivals DLSU, Thursday. Much like the UP-FEU matchup, the Espanya-based side will try to get a measure of revenge on Ateneo, having been eliminated by the Blue Eagles in last season’s semifinals. UST and Ateneo kick off at 4:00 PM.   In the first match of the day, two sides looking for their first wins of the season collide, as NU meets Adamson. After losing back-to-back contests, the a more aggressive NU side managed to hold UST to a draw for their first point of the season. They’ll be looking to carry that momentum as they take on a struggling Adamson side, who remains as the only team without points this season. NU and Adamson kick off at 9:00 AM......»»
