TAGUM CITY—Long-distance runner Jomar Angga bagged the first gold medal of the 2013 Batang Pinoy Mindanano qualifying leg with a strong finish in the boys’ 5000-meter run yesterday at the Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Center here.
The 13-year-old pride of Davao City clocked 19 minutes and 35.6 seconds after cutting loose from his pursuers in the final 800 meters. Edrian Bentulan of Davao City placed second (19:54.0) and John Rey Ulanday of Koronadal City wound up third (20:04.7).
“Sobrang init. Nakakita ako ng pagkakataon na manalo nung bigla silang bumagal,” said Angga, son of a banana plantation worker and a second-year pupil at Davao City National High School.
Christine Joy Jorban of General Santos City shared the limelight with Angga after becoming the first female athlete to capture a gold medal following a triumphant performance in girls’ long jump.
The third-year student from General Santos National High School registered 4.76 meters on her fifth jump to defeat schoolmate Jessica Jane Cora (4.39) and South Cotabato’s Pauline Paquierda (4.31) in the week-long meet organized by the Philippine Sports Commission.
Jorban, 14, competed in the Palarong Pambansa thrice—two times in the elementary level and once in high school—but failed to win a medal.
Fernando Jison Jr. of Davao City made good use of his length and athleticism to rule the boys’ high jump.
At 5-foot-11, the 15-year-old Dona Carmen Denya National High School junior cleared the bar at 1.70 meters. Louie Restauro of GenSan settled for the silver (1.50m) and Davao City’s Joel Torralba Jr. the bronze after clearing 1.30 meters.
The host province, which attracted over 2,100 athletes from 81 local government units, pocketed its first gold medal courtesy of Asher Chem Sab, who ruled the boys’ shot put after a 10.49-meter heave.
Ronald Dendam of Davao City placed second (9.26) and Iligan City’s Kerl Hanez Aplaca placed third (9.10) before track and field organizers packed up and moved all afternoon events early in the evening to give way to girls’ softball.
Friences Diane Balbaguio of Koronadal won the girls’ 2000m walk gold medal over Davao’s Frencis May Dayon in a dead heat where the judges decided in Balbaguio’s favor.
The diminutive Balbaguio came from behind the pack in the last 25 meters to nose out Dayon, who led the race throughout, with identical 14:38.2 clockings. Janyl Kate Ubas of Koronadal finished third in 14:40.2.
