Super female trio Monica Torres, Kim Mangrobang, and LC Langit (all nominated for 1st Annual SWIMBIKERUN.ph Awards Filipino Elite Womens) are launching their website tomorrow (12/27/11)! Make sure to check it out! They’re also gonna give away cool prizes from K-Swiss and other sponsors!
3 IS GREATER THAN 1
We are Kim Mangrobang, Monica Torres, and LC Langit, top Philippine triathletes and best friends. We were virtually strangers when we had to live under one roof for a triathlon training camp at Subic Bay, Zambales, in 2008. We shared the exact same training, racing, eating and sleeping schedule. After an awkward first two weeks, we discovered that despite our differences, we also shared the same passion for sport, and the same energetic and fun-loving spirits!
Living together on and off for the past three years have made us very close (at one camp we even had to share the same bed). We’ve cheered each other on through all the toughest workouts, the worst race results, injury, sickness and every little thing in between.
No TV at our Kalayaan housing, Subic Bay, Zambales – 2009
This past 2011, we witnessed the incredible growth of triathlon and endurance sports in the country. With several multisport events being held every weekend, and the growing awareness and support from the media, corporate sponsors and the general public, we started receiving a lot of recognition and messages of support and admiration through Facebook and other social media.
Serious athletes, weekend warriors, and even total strangers started coming up to us at events. We are overwhelmed and grateful for all the support we have received this year. And this has inspired us to share our story with you.
Our message is simple: IF WE CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!
