Ironman 70.3 goes to Cebu!

Jul 29, 2012 by

I think I made it clear that my involvement in Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines since last year is limited to taking pictures, carrying the athletes’ bags, cheering for them at the finish line and of course, giving life to the after-parties. This year, I am once more embarking on this highly sought-after sporting event in Triathlon and it will be hosted by Cebu. And aside from the things I have mentioned as my official functions (LOL), I am proud to say that I was given the privilege to design Team Iloilo’s Tri-Suit as well as one of the official shirts to be worn by the Iloilo contingent to the main event. I am very happy to have done it! Yay!

This year’s Ironman is aptly dubbed Tri-Tans Battle in Cebu. Sending an electric message to triathletes and its fans the world over, Ironman promises an adrenaline-surging experience for those who are lucky enough to come. The Iloilo¬†contingent is proudly represented by 35 Triathletes under the banner of Multisport Iloilo Triathlon Team. I am definitely beyond excited to set foot in Shangri-la Mactan Resort & Spa this coming weekend to brush elbows with world-class athletes and for once feel as if I am surrounded by God’s strongest and toughest creations (read: Titans).

I will be covering the event with a blow-by-blow account — of course, from my perspective — sending you stories, images and ultimately, results of this year’s most coveted belt Ironman 70.3.

This celebrity-studded event includes Triathlon superstars Pete Jacobs, Belinda Granger,¬†former Formula One world champion and current Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver Jenson Button and his supermodel girlfriend Jessica Michibata, among a roster of other elite athletes that represent their countries. Local celebrities¬†like Richard Guiterrez, Matteo Guidecelli, Jenelyn Mercado, Sen. Pia Cayetano, Piolo Pascual, businessmen Fernando Zobel De Ayala and Alaska CEO Wilfredo Uytengsu, Jr. are also on the list for this year’s Ironman. More of the local celebrities would actually surprise us with their participation come Sunday, August 5th.

I am giddy-giddy about this, honestly, but first:

MY BIRTHDAY ON AUGUST 2ND.
