Summit Natural Drinking Water Supports Amazing Race Philippines Season 2

Summit Natural Drinking Water embraces a new adventure as it partners with the second season of Amazing Race Philippines. Coming from the success of its first season, the second season promises more challenges, as it now becomes a nightly show compared with its previous weekly one-hour format1. This year’s tasks don’t just challenge the contestants physically such as rappelling face first down a 250 feet building, but mentally as well with challenges at the Philippine Stock Exchange. The season, which is still hosted by Derek Ramsay, will follow eleven teams of two individuals each as they compete for major prizes all over the country.

The second installment of the show promises to offer more exciting, more thrilling, and more breathtaking destinations. Summit delights in taking part such an adventurous show, Abe Cipriano, AVP for Asia Brewery Non-Alcoholic Division says, “The show is a perfect venue for Filipinos to appreciate the history, fantastic sights, and diverse culture that make our over 7,000 islands a truly unique experience for Pinoys and tourists. Summit Water, with its new Thirst for More campaign, encourages Filipinos to try new things – travel, dining, or adventure. We are inspired by the determination of the contestants to thirst for more, and we hope this inspires everyone to get the most out of life.”

Fourteen young athletes were introduced to the media last Saturday, October 11 at NBA Café Manila, SM Aura, Taguig City. The 14 basketball players will be sent to Beijing, China to represent Alaska Philippines in the Jr NBA and Jr WNBA games. The team will compete with their counterparts from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia. Aside from the friendship games, the team will also have a tour in Beijing, including the one of the seven wonders of the world, The Great Wall of CHina.

The 14 Jr NBA and Jr WNBA players are:

Amsali, Rhayyan (M)
Belangel, Sanjosef (M)
Dolendo, Vince Leo (M)
Rocamora, Jethro (M)
Manalang, Paul Mathew (M)
Narvasa, Jan Cyril (M)
Umadhay, David Leonardo (M)
Velasco, Luis Miguel (M)
Velasco, Andrew Vincent (M)
Binaohan, Kreecie Bettina (F)
Lanot, Arielle Marie (F)
Salvador, Roxanne (F)
Pingol, Karl Ann (F)
Pascual, Mary Jean (F)

The Alaska Jr NBA and JR WNBA will be handled by Coach Pia Dysangco and Coach Cliff Andy Tecocan.

During the sent off party, the whole team were asked by the press about how they prepared for the competition and how they feel about representing the Alaska, they’re most memorable experience during the draft and all. Most of the players are very shy to answer the questions and I can see the rawness of their personality. Very shy, humble and down to earth. I hope these kids stay with that attitude until they grow up.

It was really nice to see young kids being active in sports. I believe that sports is the best teacher of hardwork, discipline and teamwork. Kudos to Alaska Milk Corporation for providing basketball and other sport clinics to our kids today and for training and giving them the opportunities to become better athletes.

Good luck to the Team and Enjoy Beijing!

Last September 19-24, The Team Philippine Masters went to Kitakami, Japan to compete at the 18th Asia Masters Athletics Championships (AMAC). Asia Masters Athletics Championships (AMAC) – a competition that provides a chance for former national athletes aged 35 to 95 years old to test their abilities once again and demonstrate their skills in the sport of athletics.

The whole team is now back in the Philippines after their successful performances on their respective events. Our athletes won 3 Golds, 2 Silver and 5 Bronzes for a total of 10 medals. Our friend Edward Kho of Corregidor Marathon was one of them and he won a bronze medali for 4×400 MR. Congrats Coach Edward!


 El Lobo Energy Drink, one of their official sponsors organized a welcome and a victory lunch at Aristocrat, Manila to honor the achievements of our hard working athletes. The event was attended by the media, bloggers and friends of the athletes.

Here are the Team’s highlights during the event:

Margarito Baniqued, a Gintong Alay program recipient in the 80’s opened the team’s campaign by winning the Bronze Medal in the 5,000 M Walk (M50- 54). In the early going, Erlinda Lavandia salvaged another Bronze medal in Hammer Throw (W60-64) heaving 21.27 meters in the process. Linda admitted that it was her first-ever attempt in her almost 40 year career to participate in the event and never prepared for it.

On 21 Sept. Ms. Lavandia captured Silver Medals in both Shot Put and Discus Throw events for W60-64 age category. The following day, she outclassed Japan’s Matsuoka Kanako and Kobo Tomiko in Javelin Throw by winning GOLD and retaining the Game’s Record she posted in 2012. Followed by John Lozada’s Bronze Medal win in 800M race for M40-44. The day’s campaign ended with golden performance courtesy of Emerson Obiena’s 4.00M finished in Pole Vault event for M45-49.

Multi-event specialist, Elma Muros-Posadas, attempted to contribute to the over-all showing of Team Philippine Masters as she has done in the past. However, her continuous training went to naught when she injured her ankle in her first attempt in long jump eventually withdrawing her entry in 800 M hurdles and 4 x 100 M relay.

The last day saw the winning performances of the relay teams. Mesdames Victorina Calma, Elenita Punelas, Salve Bayaban and Jeanette Obiena clocked 58 Minutes and 56 seconds to win the Bronze Medal in 4 x 100 MR (W40-44). This was followed by another Bronze Medal performance of 4 Minutes 6.58 seconds in 4 x 400 MR (M40-44) courtesy of Julio Bayaban, John Lozada, Edward Kho and Emerson Obiena.

Danilo Fresnido, an enlisted personnel and former SEA Gamer ended the campaign with a big bang plunging his spear with a distance of 63.58 Meters, thus, winning the GOLD and establishing new AMAC’s record in Javelin Throw (M40-44).

The successful performance of Team Philippine Masters was made possible by the support of their sponsors Soma Sports watch, L Time Studio, Petron, San Miguel, El Lobo energy drink and Philippine Sports Commission.

Congratulations Team Philippine Masters!
