ATHLETICS IN THE PHILIPPINES – 2

Philippines Athletes are enthusiastic about their capability in the upcoming 2020 Olympics. On the Women, side of the Track Kristina Marie Knott with Personal Best in the 200M of 23.01 and 11.27 in the 100M appears to be the best on the Team. The Women’s Team is competitive.

In the Women’s 100M and 200M, Kristina Marie Knott is the best and could be an inspiration to her Teammates. In the Women’s 400M Hurdles, Robyn Lauren Brown has potential. Her technique is good but needs to work on Speed. 4x100M Women’s Team Philippines look ready to compete with a little bit of improvement.

Women’s Pole Vault will have an entrant from the Philippines that might surprise the World or maybe just Tokyo.

On the Men, side of the Track and Field competition several Athletes standout but James Deiparine looks promising as well as Eric Cray. Eric Cray’s performances are impressive but he has some serious work ahead to improve and be successful in Olympics 2020. The Men’s Team might be competitive.

In the 400M Hurdles, Eric Cray with a time of 50.21 is the best in the Philippines. He has Speed but Technique needs improvement. In the100M, Anfernee Talaboc Lopena with a Personal best of 10.61 is the best I observed. He has potential but might not have enough time to be competitive in Olympics 2020. 

T Anthony Beram, with a time of 20.83 in the 200M and 46.39 in the 400M, in 2017 looks impressive but I have not seen any recent performances. In the 800M, Marco Ragasa Vilog at 1:51.63 and Carter James Matheus Lilly at 1:47.52 with a little bit of work could improve their times to 1:45:00 to be competitive.

In the 1500M Van Thai Duong with a Personal Best of 3.51 looked good in his 2019 SEA Games performance but the Olympics will be a completely different story. The Men’s 4x400M Team should be competitive. Ernest John Obiena should deliver in the Pole Vault, fingers crossed. The fans are expecting improvement in 4x100M. Carlos Yulo should maintain is form in Gymnastics in the Olympics. Swimming will be frontline of the Filipino Team.

They are not yet as good on the Track as Jamaicans or in the Pool as Americans but I sense a Pride of the Philippines among them, or a Burning Spear somewhere.
