Ilagan City—After a long wait, Filipino-American pole vaulters Natalie Uy and Alyana Nicolas will finally be out to prove their worth when they compete in the coming 2019 Ayala Philippine Athletics Championships starting this Wednesday here at the Ilagan City Sports Complex.
And they vow to make the most out of this opportunity against regional counterparts in a bid to start their build-up on a high note for the Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) to be held here in the Philippines this November.
“I’m looking to win here for sure. My goal always is to win. My target is to jump around 4.20 meters,” said Uy whose father is a Cebuano. “In the SEAG, I’m very confident. I think if I can get the right training and get everything I need, I think I can go for gold.”
