In the standard distance 1-kilometer swim and 7-kilometer run contest, Inaki Lorbes had the best time of 42 minutes and 22 seconds winning the Male 18-24 age category. Richard Anson Navo, who topped the Vermosa Sports Hub Aquathlon 1 last March, had the next fastest time with 44:33 topping the Male 15-17 category.

Apart from awarding the winners of the aquathlon, the Top Aquathletes of the Vermosa Sports Hub Multisport Series 2019 (composed of three events) were declared and awarded accordingly by the organizers. Their respective names and final series scores are available for viewing at BikeKingPhilippines.com

“My series victory today was somewhat unexpected as I was supposed to be off-season now. Because I already participated in the first two events of the Vermosa Sports Hub Multisport Series this year, I decided to compete today and I got rewarded. This was a fulfilling race and I like racing in this venue,” said Raymund Velasco of Team Sante Barley who won the male 30-34 title for 2019. He was the champion of his category in the first aquathlon (March) and the sprint triathlon (June) that were part of the series.

Other winners – both from the Aquathlon 2 and the Vermosa Sports Hub Multisport Series – mentioned they and their teammates had trained at the Vermosa Sports Hub facility in preparation for each event this year.

The Vermosa Sports Hub will host the Sun Life Aquathlon Series Championship on October 13. For more information, visit http://bikekingphilippines.com and http://vermosa.ph.
