SEA Games: Kim Mangrobang takes triathlon three-peat

Kim Mangrobang claimed her place in the Southeast Asian Games’ history books.

The 30-year-old triathlon star annexed a third straight SEA Games gold after finishing first in the women’s individual race, Saturday in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Mangrobang broke away from the pack in the bike leg of the 1.5K swim, 40K bike and 10K run event and won her third straight crown pulling away in 2:13.31

After finishing second to compatriot Claire Adorna in the sport’s return to the biennial Games calendar in 2015 in Singapore, Mangrobang had ruled the 2017 and 2019 editions in Kuala Lumpur and Subic, respectively.

It was a bounce back of sorts as she registered a DNF just earlier this month in the 2022 Asia Triathlon Cup in Subic.

Raven Alcoseba, a high school swimming standout from De La Salle Zobel, made a good account of her SEA Games debut in triathlon, finishing third.

Alcoseba clocked 2:18:30 in the 12-women field while Indonesian Prasetyo Inge bagged the women’s silver in 2:13:31

The national triathlon team ended the day with two golds, one silver, and one bronze, and will look to add to the haul as duathlon events follow later in the week.
