Long-jumper Torres misidlak sa World Master event

HUMAN sa makadismaya nga performance sa 2016 Rio Olympics, si three-time Olympian Marestella Torres Sunang mibawi sa pagsungkit og bulawan medalya alang sa Pilipinas sa women’s 35 to 39 event sa 22nd World Masters Athletics Championships sa Perth, Australia.

Ang 35 anyos nga lumad sa San Jose, Negros Oriental miingon, “First time ko mag compete sa World Masters Championship. It’s more fun kasi by age category kaya nakakatuwang maglaro. I did short jump approach just to be sure for the gold medal.”

Dugang niya, gikonsidera ang kakulangon sa pagbansay human sa Rio debacle, wala na siya mihimo og “full approach.”

“Binawasan ko ng 10 meters ang approach ko para hindi ganun kahirap mag-training since off season na kasi ako. Short approach lang talaga ginawa ko,” pahayag niya sa Facebook interview sa SunStar Davao.

Gipildi niya ang pambato sa Australia ug Italy kinsa nakapalta ug bronze sa maong han-ay sa biennial event nga dunay 10 partisipante gikan nagkadaiyang nasud.

Niya pa ang nasud Spain ang sunod mag-host sa 2018.
