Pico de Loro concludes its 2nd Pico Tri Invitational

The challenges of the 2012 Pico Tri Invitational were showcased last March 31 with the rain pounding over two hundred participants—making the task of swimming, biking and running through Hamilo Coast’s natural terrain more demanding.  But the athletes were not deterred.  In fact, it was an opportunity for each to prove that they can push harder, step firmer and swim farther.

“The event was created to highlight the active coastal lifestyle inherent to Pico de Loro Cove.  And despite being only on its second year, this year’s Pico Tri Invitational drew twice as many participants from when we first started it in 2011.  We were so proud to have local and international professional athletes as well as the country’s renowned triathletes join us this year,” shares Rona Torres-Tan, Senior Vice-President of Hamilo Coast.

Held at Pico de Loro Cove at Hamilo Coast, the site became the perfect setting for weekend warriors to test their endurance and skill, with its pristine coastline, lush trails and rolling terrain lending itself to provide a challenging and inspiring backdrop for the event.

In the professional male category, Mat O’Halloran, a professional triathlete from Canada proved to be the prominent victor of the event with a time of 1:45:25 in first place, as well as winning the best time for the swimming and biking leg.  He was closely followed by second place winner, Fredrick Croneborg of Sweden, who also took home the trophy for fastest time in the running leg of the triathlon.  For the women’s professional category, Australia’s Ali Fitch took home the first place trophy by completing the race in 1:54:15, followed by Katja Rabe of Germany.  Pico de Loro’s resident triathlete coach, Ani de Leon-Brown who completed the race in 2:17:58 dominated the over-all women’s non-professional category, only three months after giving birth.

The sporting event culminated in an awarding ceremony with entertainment from Overdrive, before Cookie Chua and Gary Granada took the stage to serenade guests under the stars for Pico de Loro Cove’s observance of Earth Hour.

The 2012 Pico Tri Invitational was made possible in partnership with Rexona, Nestea, Unilever, Selecta, Gatorade, San Miguel Beer, Bike King, SM Bonus and Hewlett Packard Printers.
