Last man standing

Eric Cray

The Philippines’s athletics campaign at the 2014 Asian Games now rests solely on the broad shoulders of hurdler Eric Shaun Cray. The latest casualty of Team Philippines is Jesson Cid who’s “NM” in the pole vault event of the Decathlon will earn him zero points.  He lost at least 600 pts in that event, and may well finish at 6400 pts, way below his national mark of 7069 pts.

Cray is scheduled to run in the finals of the 400m hurdles tonight at 8:50pm (Korean time).

Incidentally, the last Filipino who won a medal in this discipline was Jaime Pimentel back in 1954 when Manila hosted the quadrennial games.  His mark was 55.6s, good enough for a bronze behind Mirza Khan (PAK) and Chang Ong Leng (SIN).

Lets give Eric all our support.

The Berlin Marathon has been attracting world record attempts for more than a decade now because of its looped, flat course.  Coupled with Berlin’s low humidity and a temperature perfect for long distance running, the course has been a haven for all types of runners, elite or non elite alike.

Last September 28, Berlin Marathon gifted the running world its 7th marathon world record since 1998, including the last 6 world records.  Kenyan Dennis Kimetto shattered the WR by 26 seconds by registering 2:02:57 and tugged along 2nd placer Emmanuel Mutai to beat the old record held by Wilson Kipsang.

Philippine long jump record holder Henry Dagmil registered jumps of  7.17, 7.35 and 7.43 at the Asian Games athletics competitions.  Henry missed the final eight by 4 centimeters (.04 meters) thus ending his Asiad campaign on a frustrating note.

This is the first time that Henry failed to advance to the finals as he was 5th in the 2006 games and 6th in the 2010 Asiad.  His 2014 best is 7.56m and he registered a 7.80m leap last year, his best since 2008.
