/ 03:09 AM June 07, 2015

SUBIC—Sisters Samantha and Tara Borlain virtually made it a family affair as they ruled their respective divisions in the Alaska IronKids Aquathlon II yesterday at the Wow Pool and Remy Field here.

The elder Samantha fashioned out a wire-to-wire finish in the girls’ 13-14 event and kid sister Tara duplicated the feat in the 11-12 category as the Borlains led the march of winners in the swim-run competition of the event put up by Alaska and organized by Sunrise Events, Inc.

Samantha, 13, came out of the swim phase ahead of everybody else at 4:21 then sustained her charge in the run with a 5:58 clocking to log a triumphant 14:39. Christine Levi Gaspar (15:37) and Una Janus Sibayan (15:41) took the next two places.

Not to be outdone, the 12-year-old Tara blitzed past the opposition interestingly with the same winning time of 14:39 behind a 4:48 swim and 5:05 run.
