This was a very enriching course and experience for me especially in my capacity as a local chief executive.

Richard Gomez wins in making the ‘complete athletes’ December 9, 2019 Jose Mari M.

Actor and sports icon Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez was in the middle of the heat in Subic Bay—observant and exuberant as a father to his brood.And to honor, more so, to spread to posterity the Modern Pentathlon events which debuted in this year’s 11-nation sportsfest, Gomez planted trees in Subic Bay as a continuing tradition among first-time host venues of the said Olympic sport. “The tree planting ceremony is a tradition from way back from the founder of Modern Pentathlon, John Pierre de Coubertin, who is also the founder of modern Olympics we celebrate every four years,” Gomez said in an exclusive with The Millennium Trumpet. “In MP, we plant trees where games are played for the first time. This, we hope it will be remembered in years to come and a symbol that MP is live in one particular area for a very long time,” he said.Kindness and solidarity were what Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority chief Wilma Eisma thought of the tree seedlings planted in the former US Naval base. “Subic Bay is honored to have hosted the first ever Modern Pentathlon competition in the SEAG.” “These trees are symbols of ties that bind us with our SEA neighbors, trees that give us hope for a nation who is united, who come together in times of adversity, not cruel to each other but rather kind and selfless as Filipinos have always been,” Eisma said.With homesoil watching and history in the offing, Filipino pentathletes made sure the trees will mark in their annual rings the first Philippine victories.Ormoc natives Princess Arbilon and Samuel German captured the gold in the mixed relay beach laser-run portion. Michael Comaling pocketed the gold medal of the men’s beach triathle segment after clocking in 17 minutes and 8.87 seconds to defeat his Thai foe with 1

It was a grueling race in the Modern Pentathlon for the 30th SEA Games. Per leg, Michael Comaling and Princess Arbilon had to shoot 5 targets, then swim 50 meters, and then run 800 meters on sand — they did all that 4 times. They trained very hard the months leading up to this event. On race day, just when he was approaching the finish line I knew Michael was about to collapse and I caught him right on time. I am so proud of these homegrown Ormocanon athletes. They are warriors.#tnxtothephotographer #uipm#pmpa#laserrun#seagames2019#goldmedal
