I'm Madel, a triathlete from Los Baños, Laguna and this coming September 7, I will be representing the country in the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France.
Ironman 70.3 consists of a 1.9km swim, followed by a 90km bike, and finished with a 21.1km run. What makes this race so special for me is that not only am I given the opportunity to compete against triathletes from all over the globe, but I will also be the youngest Filipina to do so. I was able to qualify my World Championship slot from Ironman 70.3 Langkawi last year where I won second place in the female 18-24 age category.
Here's more information about the race: http://m.asia.ironman.com/triathlon/events/america...
Now that my visa has been granted, the pressure to prepare physically, mentally, and financially is on. Last semester, I sold brownies and applied as a student assistant in my university so that I could (in my smallest ways) raise funds for my upcoming race.
I am grateful for the support I've been receiving. Your donations are a big help for my journey to the World Championship. The funds received here will be used to cover my airfare, accommodation, and other travel expenses.
