Baguio’s rising triathlete Euan Arrow Ramos, the youngest of the three Ramos siblings, recorded the fastest time of the day at the Ironkids Philippines triathlon race on June 10 in Subic.
The 13-year-old Ramos battled back from fifth in the swim with a surge in the bike then stayed in control in the final run to rule the premier 13 to 15 division with a total time of 24 minutes and 34 seconds.
The participants swam a 400-meter distance then biked 10-kilometers and ran 2.5-km.
Zabelle Eugenio from San Isidro, Rizal took the top spot in the girls division and is now under the coaching program of the Baguio-Benguet Triathlon.
The Ramos brothers also came from Asian Cup this July which happened in Japan, but Arrow and Dash Ramos had a crash on the bike leg.
Josh Ramos finished 26th which earned him more Olympic points.
Together with his older brothers, Arrow will train for two months in Europe next month as part of their preparation for bigger races.
He will join the Banyoles Triathlon Camp while the two older Ramos will join a high performing squad in Vittoria Gasteiz, Spain.
Arrow will prepare for the Youth Olympic Games qualification process which will start sometime in 2024.
“That is why we are preparing him as early as now and we want to expose him to different training camps and races,” said Arrow’s father, Jet.
This October, Arrow will be tested in the Asia Youth Championships in Hong Kong. – Press release
