CalebStuart Sponsorship Profile

Known as the Man-Mountain of Philippine Track and Field, Caleb John Christian Stuart stands tall at 6’ 2” and weighs in at 250lbs. Stuart is the ideal build for a world class Hammer Throw. Stuart was discovered via a baseball contact (his sister, Morgan Stuart, played for the Philippine Softball Team). Commissioner Jolly Gomez of the Philippine Sports Commission was able to help in bringing him to the attention of the Track and Field squad as well as in acquiring Stuart’s Filipino Passport (his mother is Filipino).

Stuart had an impressive collegiate career throwing the Shotput, Discus and Hammer for UC Riverside, a Division 1 NCAA College in the US. He came in 17th in the US Championships and 11th in the NCAA Championships in the Hammer in 2014. A rising talent in US Track and Field, Caleb opted to compete for the Philippines.

In February 2015, Stuart smashed the Philippine Hammer Throw Record held by former four-time SEA Games Champion (2003-2009) Arniel Ferrera (61.69) with a throw of 68.66m at the Ben Brown meet. His performance also shattered the South East Asian Record of Tantiphong Phetchiya of Thailand (62.23m) the (2011-2013) SEA Games Champion.

In March 2015, Stuart flew to the Philippines with his family and joined with Andrew Pirie’s Phil Airforce Alliance team at the 2015 National Open in Laguna. He brought pride to the team and produced three of the eight total medals won by the men’s team at the National Open. His wins included the Hammer, Discus and Shotput. He ended the unbroken 16-year local winning streak of Ferrera (Airforce) and also defeated SEA Games Bronze medalist Jackie Wong of Malaysia in the Hammer Throw. Stuart also beat the National Record Holder Eleazer Sunang in the Shotput.

Stuart came in as the favorite at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore. Despite the pressure to return the crown to the Philippines, Stuart excelled while securing the SEA Games Title with a SEA Games Record of 65.63m.

Caleb became just the third man after former National Coach Danilo Jarina and Arniel to win the SEA Games title; carrying on a proud tradition.

The next goal for Caleb and his coach, Shaun McGinley, is to hit the 77m standard for the Rio Olympics.

At 25 years old, Caleb has about another 5-10 years before he reaches his prime as a hammer thrower. As well as being an impressive performer, Caleb could be viewed as a gentle giant. His respect and friendship for his predecessor, Arniel (who helped him during the SEA Games), says a lot about his character. He was seen giving a motivational lecture to the Leyte ‘Yolanda Victim’  children at the National Open.

Caleb wants to inspire and to help teach the next generation of throwers for the Philippines. He has expressed interest in conducting throwing clinics and in being an example of success from hard work.

Caleb came back to the 2016 National Open and was able to successfully defend his National Title in the Hammer Throw.

“I only have respect and praise on the humble giant, and I strongly believe that any company

or product he will help endorse will greatly benefit due to his good nature and character, as

well as his status as a SEA Games Champion. He does need support to reach his Olympic

goals. Perhaps a company might be interested in linking up with the clinics for example.”
