LAPU-LAPU CITY — Juan Francisco Baniqued and Tara Borlain capped off their careers in the youth circuit and once again topped the 2017 Alaska IronKids on Saturday morning at Shangri-La Mactan here.

Baniqued edged Joseff Miguel Quirino in a photo finish in the boys’ 13-14 division as the two clocked an identical 38:50 to finish the swim-bike-run course.

Quirino closed in on Baniqued after falling behind by over a minute, making his chase in the run course with a time of 14:18.

But the reigning champion’s cushion was enough to get him past the finish line by just a millisecond to claim his fourth gold in Cebu.

Adrian Thomas Dionisio placed third at 38:58

Meanwhile, Tara Borlain extended her dynasty in the girls’ 13-14 category, running away with the crown with a time of 41:34
