Honestly, this was my first time to witness a sporty event like this. Nakikita ko lang syung mga ganito sa instagram feed ko or the internet. I was aiming to be sporty too, kaso baka di na kaya ng heart ko. Kaya when I found out that it is going to be a "Kids Edition" Oh My Gosh!!! kaya ba ng mga bagets ito? and Boy Oh Boy! Mali Ako...
I Underestimated those kiddilets! Astig pala sila and Ang lakas!!

Behind The Scenes
I am super proud of them. Kahit siguro ilaban ako sa 6 year old I'm so talo :( Inggit much I can't swim eh :P
Wala akong nakitang nag-stopped sa pag swim. Yung tipong "teka po I'll just catch my breath..." walang ganun... Ako ang napagod for them :) Grabe pinaghandaan siguro talaga ng mga kids ito. I noticed ang mga muscles nila perfect! At a very young age I can really see that they are in good shape and into sports pa, mind you aquathlon ito! bongga! super sports! Iniisip ko na nga kung i-train ko na din my kids into thi kesa maging hooked sa gadgets. But first mag-aral muna kami mag swim :)
But for those na marunong na magswim and interested to be part of the next IronKids Philippines Aquathlon or Triathlon see details below:
