Both have the same time finish of 2:09:14. Arland Macasieb posted a status that Duenas beat him by millisecond. They need a new kind of timer just so their time difference can be recorded. =) (see Dipolog Centennial Triathlon results at SugbuTriathlon here >>.)
Based on the photos, it seemed that Duenas finally overtook Macasieb upon reaching the red carpet. The red carpet must be Duenas lucky charm.
Rookie vs Pro
Duenas’, a rookie in triathlon, victory over a pro triathlete Macasieb proved that his previous winning at Sugbutriathlon’s Tri Team Championship series was not a fluke.
This epic finish is probably a statement from Duenas that, despite being a rookie, he will not make triathlon any easier; and that it’s time for the pro’s to up their game!
It will be exciting if these 2 can duel again in the upcoming Tabuelan 111 triathlon this June. (We’ll be running a few related stories for the upcoming Tabuelan 111, a 111KM-distance triathlon to be held at Tabuelan, Cebu, please watch out for it.)
Hope to hear your epic finish moment too! Share it with us at aktib.ph here >>.
