Delos Santos, Bernido win 21K

THERE was a bit of confusion about her time but when the dust settled, Cebu’s Marathon Queen, Mary Grace Delos Santos, prevailed in the 21K run of the Cebu City Marathon yesterday at the IT Park.

At first, Delos Santos’s time was said to have been one hour, 11 minutes, which running experts Raffy Uytiepo and Raffy Osumo deemed impossible.

“That is too fast for a girl and too fast for someone with an injured leg. And if so, then she just beat her personal best of 1:21,” said Uytiepo. After some clarification, it was found out that Delos Santos finished in 1:31.20. It was still enough for her to hold on to the top spot of the women’s division, which saw Christy Sevilleno Tutor coming in second place at 1:35.18.

Jojilyn Pepito was at third place, while Joeyry Lee and Milette Chiongbian took the fifth and fourth places, respectively. (more)
