The Steam Train or The Nor Express. Showed alot of promise at 14 he wound up last in the Palaro final against Daniel Noval (who went onto become the JR Record Holder).

The Following year at the Palaro Nor won the 100/200 double in 11.0 and 22.3. He went onto become one of the youngest male National Junior sprint champions in Philippine Athletic History when he took the scalp of defending champion Lindley Navaja at 15 years of age in the 100m at the PNG in Bacolod 2011.

Nor missed the 2012 Palaro mainly due to injuries, however with a bandaged knee he came back to defend his national junor title in the 100 meter dash at the PNG in Dumaguete the following month. Nor made his debut for the Philippines at the ASEAN School Games, then his second cap was at the Kotah Kinabalu games in Sabah. This trip will be Nor’s third cap for the Philippines.

In 2013 he had some very close second places, first he was second in a controversial finish to Mark Lirazan at the Palaro in Dumaguete, then at the PNG he wound up second to Jomar Udtohan in the youth boys 100 meter dash.

Nor opted to goto UST. Then in the UAAP he was milliseconds behind Jasper Tanhueco of DLSU in the 100m, and finished a credible 4th in the 200m in his first playing year.

Asked why he chose UST

i decided here in UST because since when i was in high school, this is my choices and for me ust is the one of best school in the Philippines , and i know all of athletes here is from poor family like me, and my couse is BACHELOR OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION major in SPORTS AND WELLNESS MANAGEMENT.

Nor regained his 100m Junior title in 2014, his third title in this event and then added the 200 meter dash with a win over Lirazan at the 2014 PNG. He then had a win over another one of his rivals Jomar Udtohan taking the Junior title at the weekly relay finals.

His Hero is National Record Holder Ralph Soguilon, who like Nor is also a proud member of Marist schools. Nor is hoping one day he can make the national team and help his family back in the province. For Nor his family and his faith in Islam are very important for him.

Nor is currently coached by Manny Calipes at UST, however prior to this his coach was Jonathan Emmanuel.
