Five Years of

Social Networking celebrates its 5th Birthday, started in 2012. Prior to this we were at wordpress starting in 2011 before moving to And prior to that in 2010 I first signed up to sports writing through the encouragement of Moriel ‘Yell’ Carreon, The Pinoymiler YUN OH!!!.

When we first came along there was pinoymiler and Hurdler 49 so it was an interesting landscape of blogs. As well as our Malaysian counterpart that is still running.

Today Pinoyathletics provides a very reliable source of information, results, articles, and commentaries not just on Athletics but has branched out into different sports. Through my learning to appreciate and take interest in other sports during my two year tenure in the Philippine Sports Commission as Research Assitant to Commissioner Jolly Gomez.

We realized that by just focusing on athletics we were limiting our readership. It was thus that myself and co-founder Airnel Abarra took on two young writers. Joan Masangkay from Power lifting and Kimberly Goloran a varsity athlete to help continue to mold the legacy of Pinoyathletics. We are very interested on taking on more writers if possible.

Through our joint efforts Airnel and myself covered all the Palarong Pambansa back to Lingayen in 2011. Providing latest results, excellent photos and interviews with grass root athletes and coaches. We also covered National Open, National Games, Batang Pinoy, UAAP, NCAA, ASEAN School Games 2014 and even SEA Games 2015.

Pinoyathletics continues to grow as a media power house in the Philippines and today even rivals the major newspapers when it comes to reporting on sports news.

We would like to say that we are a truthful media outlet. And by that we have teeth and we do bite when we need to bite. Being truthful is not always going to be neutral but objective as we will justify our write ups with factual evidence when need be.

We would like to thank our readers for years of continued support. And we promise to make several innovations and new exciting articles for our readers over the coming year/s. We welcome constructive feedback over
