Posted 4 years ago
FROM local to international races there is no stopping Cagayan de Oro triathlete John Rey “Totax” Tumanda from achieving more.
Fresh from winning the Surigao Strait Duathlon in Surigao City, the 28-year-old Tumanda, who’s still an active traffic enforcer, triumphed in the Black Arrow Express 5150 category for the 25-29 male age group participants in Olongapo City on November 4.
“It’s always a pleasure to be at the top of the podium in every race that I competed. I’m so thankful for those who keep supporting me with the hope of accomplishing more in our next international adventures,” Tumanda said.
Tumanda’s team finished third overall with the contribution of Paul Jumamil as fourth-place in the Asian Elite and another teammate, Satar Salem as second-place in the 20-24 male age category.
Tumanda, who placed 17th overall among 382 males, and 19th among 469 contestants in the Black Arrow Express, acknowledged Mayor Uloy Dimaporo, Sami Dee and the Dimaporo family for making his Subic trip possible.
