Jonalyn Halasan of Calabarzon bagged another gold medal for the region after ruling the secondary girls division of triple jump at 11.39 meters.

Halasan is an incoming Grade 12 student at the General Pantaleon Garcia Senior High School in Imus City, Cavite. This is the 17-year-old’s third time to compete in Palaro, and her second gold medal after finishing first in the elementary girls division of the same event in 2019.

Kahit maliit lang kami, kahit hindi kami sobrang tangkad na tao, hindi kami sobrang payat na tao, lagi nila nire-remind sa amin na kaya namin ‘yun (Even when we’re not that tall and lean, they always remind us that we can still do it),” Halasan shared.
