Tabal reigns anew
in Milo Marathon
Mary Joy Tabal just made an unprecedented feat in front of her fellow Cebuanos.
Tabal scored her fifth consecutive win in the national finals of the Milo Marathon in Cebu City on Sunday, becoming the first Filipino woman to do so.
Tabal, who finished the Rio Olympics marathon last year, clocked in at 2:58:01, edging second placer Christabel Martes (3:04:20) and third placer Jho-An Villarma (3:11:26) among the other local female racers.
Tabal also finished third in the open category, giving her P200,000 aside from the P150,000 that she earned for successfully defending the women's title.
