The fastest 15 year old Filipino in the quarter mile of all time. Kenneth Nodos will make his debut at the ASEAN School Games.
Born August 3, 1998 from General Santos, and studying at GS City High School.
A product of the Batang Pinoy. Nodos finished second in the 400 meters there in 2014. He then finished with the silver medal at the PNG behind Mark Lirazan in the Junior Division. The only thing was Nodos was still only 15 his time of 50.46 were he finished ahead of athletes 3 or 4 years older than him. A few months later a the Regional meet Nodos improved his best time to 49.6.
Kenneth holds best times of 11.36, 23.09 and 50.46et in the 100-200-400.
Although he is the third best 400m runner in the ASEAN School team, Udtohan and Mejia chose to focus on other events so he makes his international debut in the 400 and relays in Manila.
Nodos rates 2007 SEA Games 400m Champion Julius Nierras, and province mate Henry Dagmil a triple SEA Games gold medalist in the Long Jump. He said that he has now fulfilled his goal by being selected for an international meet and wants to be as successful in the sport as Julius Nierras.
My idol in Philippines Athletics is Sir Nierres because he won a gold medal in 2007 Sea games and he so humble.
