ALASKA IronKids Philippines 2013


Last May 19, 2013, I was fortunate to be invited by Alaska Milk Corporation to cover the Aquathlon event at the Ateneo de Manila Grade School.

I’m a father and I consider myself as athletic. Good thing my kids are also active in sports. My daughter is into cheerdancing (sports ba yun? :p), my eldest son is into swimming, my two younger boys are into basketball. They have joined a number of fun runs too, though not in competitive mode.. yet. 😉



Kids as young as 6 years old compete in an Aquathlon (Swim-Run) event. Although there were some  kids who swam like there’s no tomorrow, there are also those who just enjoyed the event. After all, they are kids.

I think the parents were more tensed… =D

 Hopefully, I’ll have my kids join the next Alaska IronKids event. I’ve been talking to my eldest son to train again before he turns 15 so that he could qualify. Keeping fingers crossed, we’ll see him in action soon. 😉
