Humidity affects performance of Baguio athletes in CARAA
by Jessa Mardy P. Samidan

Unaccustomed to warm weather, Baguio City athletes fell short of 17 gold medals having an overall score of 205 gold, 110 silver and 79 bronze medals during the recently concluded Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association (CARAA) meet held at the Apayao Sports and Eco-Tourism Complex in Payanan, Luna, Apayao.

Baguio’s 205-110-79 overall finish in this year’s CARAA was lower compared to its 222-102-61 haul in 2018 per records of the Department of Education Cordillera.

While Baguio City retained the championship crown, the Baguio City DepEd Division said the humidity in Apayao may have affected the performance of the city athletes.

Several athletes also had diarrhea according to DepEd Baguio Sports Development Coordinator Arthur Tiongan.

“The weather and lose bowel movement affected our athletes especially during the finals, most of our athletics and swimming contingents were already dehydrated due to diarrhea,” Tiongan explained.

“But we are thankful to the local government of Apayao for immediately assisting our medical team from Baguio. We were able to address the health concern,” Tiongan added.

Despite these concerns, Tiongan said the Baguio athletes performed well particularly in the team games such as basketball and volleyball, which used to be dominated by the Benguet division.

Tiongan also noted the overall medal tally included exhibition games such as the dance sport and aero gymnastics which was dominated by the Apayao division; and the new sport, pencak silat reigned by the Benguet division.

“Apayao really prepared for the CARAA. They even hired professional athletes and coaches to train their delegation,” Tiongan said.
