Zedrick James Borja bagged his second straight Alaska Fortified IronKids title in the centerpiece 13-14 years old boys category   at the WOW Recreation and Activity Center, reported The Manila Times

Borja, who dominated the previous IronKids edition at the Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite, clocked in at  18 minutes and 21.9 seconds, defeating twin brothers Jose Maria Tayag (18:40.1) and Juan Miguel (18:41.3) in the 400-meter-swim and 3-kilometer-run race, the report said.

“This is my last race in the IronKids. A big farewell for me as I won in my age category,”  Manila Times quoted Borja as saying.

The national developmental team member from San Pedro, Laguna broke away in the eight-loop swim, clocking in 5:53—almost half a minute ahead of the Tayag twins.

Borja, a Grade 8 student in San Beda-Alabang, bared his intention to continue his multisport career.

In the girls 13-14 division meanwhile, Lady Samantha Jhunace Corpuz  was triumphant with a log of 19:01.4, defeating Lahainah Digermo (22:04.6) and Princess Julianne Patilan (22:26.2).

Corpuz tallied event-best marks of 5:54 in the swim and 12:23 in the run to defend her IronKids Subic silverware and bag her third overall crown, said the Times report.

“I always think of winning to get sponsors. That’s why I train everyday,” the Times quoted Corpuz as saying. Corpuz is an incoming Grade 7 student of the Bright Beginnings Learning School in La Union.

Other winners were Michael Gabriel Lozada and Aubrey Tom (11-12), Darrell Johnson Braim Bada and Alyssa Khim Cabatian (9-10), and Arthur Emmyel Zulueta and Mikayla Miracle Salada (6-8).
