PSI Nationals: Miguel Barreto closes out competition with 100m free personal-best

Miguel Barreto closed out the 2022 Philippine Swimming Inc. National Open with a bang, topping both of his events on Sunday at the Teofilo Yldefonso Swimming Complex in Malate, Manila.

The Ayala Harpoons Swim Club standout opened his account for the day with the 800m freestyle pole in 8:52.01, but surprised himself with a personal best of 53.03 in the 100m freestyle.

Barreto said, “Thankfully nag-best time ako. Out of my five events, ‘yun lang ‘yung pinakamagandang swim ko.

“Kaya ‘yun, sobrang happy ko sa 100 free. Tsaka ‘di ko rin siya event, so main event ko talaga is 400 free talaga. So yun medyo nagulat rin ako and syempre happy ako,” the 18-year-old continued.

Pierre Chan and Jordan Lobos also dished out stellar performances. QC Buccaneers’ Chan outpaced everyone in the 50m backstroke in 26.91, while BEST Main’s Lobos touched first at the 200m breaststroke in 2:21.77.2022-PSI-National-Open-Day-3-Micaela-Mojdeh-1 PSI Nationals: Miguel Barreto closes out competition with 100m free personal-best News Swimming  - philippine sports news
