Justiniane was born January 3, 1998 and currently studies at Beatriz D. Durano Memorial National High School .
Although he failed to place at the Palarong Pambansa in the sprints, he came back with a silver medal in the Junior 200m at the PNG, finishing behind former Palaro Champion Romnick Nor and claiming the scalp of 2013 Palaro Champion Mark Lirazan.
We had definitely not seen the end of this young man as he broke the Milo Little Olympic meet records in Marikina last month with times of 11.0, 22.4 and 50.7 in the 100,200, 400.
Lining up in his debut for the Philippines in the 200, 400 and 4×100 and 4×400 Relays will be a tough task for the 16 year old who is up against some stiff international competition from Thailand and Malaysia.
Justiniane is without the services of a coach, but now has quite a few offers from several schools in Manila so he is hoping he can land himself with a credible specialist sprint coach.
Naturally Justiniane idol is Leyte born, but former University of Cebu Athlete Julius Nierras the 2007 SEA Games 400m Champion. Justiniane likes the humble attitude that Nierras brings to the game.
Justiniane would like to follow in the footsteps idol and one day bring honor representing the Philippines in the same humble manner in which Nierras has displayed. The opportunity to play at the ASEAN School Games will hopefully be the first of many times in which he will represent the country. He had this to say about the opportunity.
