UAAP 85 CAT: UP’s Buenavista shatters UAAP 10k mark


Eduard Josh Buenavista broke a long-standing UAAP record as reigning men’s champion University of the Philippines in pulling away from the pack in the ongoing UAAP Season 85 Collegiate Athletics Championships, Thursday at the Philsports Oval in Pasig City.

De La Salle University likewise kept its hold in the women’s division despite the resurgence of University of Santo Tomas.

Eduard, son of Philippine athletics legend Eduardo Buenavista, registered a new UAAP mark in the 10,000 meters with 32:08.30 minutes to smash the previous one of 32:38.88 set by Far Eastern University’s Nelbert Ducusin in UAAP Season 68.

The rookie led the UP domination of the event that also saw teammates Eduard Flores and Roy Laudit take the silver and bronze.

The Fighting Maroons now hold 140 points to maintain its pole position ahead of former seven-time champion Far Eastern University, who now stands at second with 117.
