Finis Philippines Partners with the 2018 Palarong Pambansa Once Again

For the third year in a row Finis Philippines has been chosen to be the Official Swim Partner of the 2018 Palarong Pambansa for its National Swim Tournament. Our gratitude to the Department of Education and to the Vigan, Ilocos Sur LGU for making it happen again.

Finis Philippines started being the Offcial Swim Partner of the Palarong Pambansa in 2016 at Legaspi City at Albay then followed by  San Jose de Buenavista City at Antique for 2017 and now at Vigan City in  Ilocos Sur for 2018. 

Seeing action from Team FinisPH at this National Swim Tournament after qualifying from their regional meets are ace  swimmers  Kyla Soguilon, Jasmine Mojdeh, Jerald Jacinto, Jux Solita, Jalil Taguinod, Arbeen Thruelen and Thanya de la Cruz.

Finis Philippines wishes all the qualified swimmers competing in Vigan City the best of luck on top of the hard work they did with their swim coaches to bring them to this prestigious swim tournament.

Expect Kyla Soguilon to make more waves this year.

This after the country’s top junior swimmer from Aklan beefed up her skills by undergoing training in one of the best swim training camps last month.

Soguilon’s father and mentor Kokoy told Cebu Daily News (CDN) that the 13-year-old multi-titled tanker trained in the US under the tutelage of renowned American Olympian gold medalists Gary Hall Sr. and his son, Gary Jr.

She had her training at The Race Club Swim Camp in Coronado, California, which is owned by Hall Sr. uses scientifically-based methods in swim training. 

Soguilon is a three-in-a-row Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) junior athlete of the year awardee and a two-time Most Outstanding Swimmer of the Palarong Pambansa.

She is expected to show off her bolstered form in the Western Visayas Regional Athletic Association (WVRAA) next month in Iloilo. She will then compete for the first time in the secondary division in the Palarong Pambansa this April in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.

The swim camp in the USA is very timely because Kyla is preparing herself for the Palarong Pambansa where she will compete in the secondary division for the first time. 

Before she flew to California, Kyla, a grade seven student of the Regional Science High School of Aklan won five gold medals in the Batang Pinoy Visayas Games held in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental last November. (Cebu Daily News)
