Team Kuago rules tough Ninja 100
After long hours of grueling competition, Team Kuago ruled the recent Ninja 100 Team Challenge Asia, which featured head-to-head races covering eight obstacles on a 100-meter course.
By yearend, organizers led by Ninja 100 founder Noel Agra are looking at a “longer, better, tougher” Ninja 300, the first of its kind in Asia.
A total of 37 teams of three members each (two male and one female) vied in the event held at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig.
The Team Kuago of Nate Sanchez and Jennifer Gabriel of Davao, and Charles Or of Manila, defeated Team Trojan.
Sanchez, a 29-year-old CrossFit athlete, electrified the crowd during the event sanctioned by the Pilipinas Obstacle Course Federation headed by lawyer Al Agra.
Only three men made it to the top of the eighth and last obstacle, the 12-foot wave wall, typifying the difficulty of the course.
“It’s one obstacle after another with no runs so it was difficult to recover,” said Sanchez.

Enriquez aim: sweep of PPS Zambo
Sydney Ezra Enriquez tries to complete a rare sweep of the three-leg Zamboanga del Norte swing of the Palawan Pawnshop Palawan Express Pera Padala age group tennis circuit as she banners the cast in the PPS-PEPP Sindangan tournament which got under way over the weekend at Sindangan Tennis Club.
Enriquez took the girls’ 16- and 18-and-under singles titles in the Liloy stop and at her hometown Salug the last two weeks with the rising star eyeing to make it three-in-row in the Group 2 tournament.
But a slew of players will be out to foil her bid, including Princess Gom-os, who is also itching to recover from a series of setbacks, along with Ramela Borromeo, Faith Virgo, Realyn Rosales, Angel Repaja, Jalia Elumba and Jossah Ranas in the premier category of the event presented by Dunlop.
