MAXIMO TRIES TO DEFEND LEAD

CEBUANO junior cyclist Igi Maximo is set to defend his over-all junior ranking of the 2010 Philippine Premiere Cycling League Championship today in Parañaque City.

Although Maximo wants to retain his dominance, he does not want to keep his hopes high because Leg 5 is a tough 30-kilometer Individual Time Trial (ITT) event.

“It does not look promising. The ITT event is difficult for me. I don’t get to practice it because we don’t have many ITT races in Cebu. Secondly, this is a forte for triathletes, which I am not. I know I will be up against some of the best junior triathletes in the country. Also, my bike is not ITT-ready. It’s a road bike that we had to modify so that I can use it for an ITT race,” Maximo said.

Maximo said he hopes to see more ITT races in Cebu but added that as much as local organizers would want to organize ITT races, Cebu has fewer venues.

“Unlike Manila, Cebu has very few wide highways. Imagine the local cyclists have to travel all the way to Danao or Sogod just to have an ITT practice. They have to be away from the city to avoid the vehicles on the road. Still, there are buses to contend with. One good cycling venue in Cebu is the SRP. I hope we can do some events there with the support of the city government,” Maximo said.

Maximo leads the junior division ranking due to his decent performances in the first two legs, which are both criterium races.

In Leg 4 in Clark, he posted second place finishes in the Tour of Clark-Circuit race and the Tour of Clark-Road race.

He missed the third leg because he was invited to join junior cycling events in the US.

BUILDING CHAMPIONS OFF AND ON THE FIELD

Last Aug. 12 during the screening of teams and players, it took CESAFI one lunch, two snacks and six hours to make sure that its players competing in its 10th season are “student first, athlete second”.

The CESAFI Screening Committee, composed of the different athletic directors of the member schools, took pains and extra length in reviewing the credentials of the athletes, seeing to it that before they can play, they have done their homework well – passing at least 60% of their subjects for college students or all the subjects in the case of high school pupils.

I was there because CESAFI asked me to help football event. I am not a member of CESAFI. I am just an outsider, looking in. What I saw made me realize a few things.

School Sports concept

I have been given the opportunity to lead a football organization in the past. We organized tournaments for the youth and seniors. In the age-group youth leagues, all we ask from the players, who are also students by the way, was a proof of age. The academic report card was not required. We have no idea if the student was doing well in his studies. As long as he plays the game, he gets in the tournament. The screening process was done in less than an hour, not the taxing 6 hours plus 1 lunch and 2 snacks.

Looking back made me realize that a sports event can somehow make or unmake a person, particularly the youth. Depending on the thrust of a sports organization – it can make a youth to become an elite athlete, as in the case of the national sports associations (NSA), representing the country in international competitions, or, as in the case of CESAFI and other school leagues - guide the youth to balance academic and sports. CESAFI clearly “uses” sports to mold the youth of today become the leaders of tomorrow.

This is the primary reason why TEAM maX1mo is supporting CESAFI Football, for we share the same advocacy: “building Champions off and on the field”.

To all the parents of these student-athletes who passed the grueling CESAFI screening and earned the privilege of playing for the 10th CESAFI Football Championship, congratulations! Your sons have been a good student all the while.

High school games will start on Sept. 4, while the collegiate games will follow on Sept. 5, 2010 Sunday. The complete schedule can be viewed at www.pabolfc.com under “CESAFI Football – Calendar” category.

This time it’s for CESAFI. Enjoy the games.

MAXIMO VIES IN 5TH LEG OF PPCL

CEBUANO junior cyclist Luis Miguel “Igi” Maximo will try to defend his overall junior ranking when the 5th leg of the prestigious 2010 Philippine Premiere Cycling League championship series kicks off today in Paranaque City , Manila.

The 15-year-old student of Springdale School will face an acid test as the 5th leg will be a tough 30 kilometer Individual Time Trial (ITT) set at Macapagal Avenue in Paranaque City near the SM Mall of Asia.

Maximo, who is supported by Oz Racing and Maximax Air Conditioning, earlier admitted that ITTs are not his forte and said his chances today may not be very promising.

“Not promising. ITT event is difficult for me. I don’t get to practice it because we don’t have many ITT races in Cebu . Second, this is a forte for triathletes, and I am not (yet). I know I will be up against some of the best junior tri in the country. Third, my bike is not ITT-ready. It’s a road bike that we have to modify so that I can use it for an ITT race,” Maximo said.

According to his father Maxi Maximo, there are fewer ITT races in Cebu because unlike Manila , Cebu has very few, wide highways.

“Imagine the local cyclists have to travel all the way to Danao or Sogod just to have an ITT practice. They have to be away from the city to avoid the vehicles on the road. Still, there are buses to contend with. One good cycling venue in Cebu is the SRP. I hope we can do some events there with the support of the city government,” Maxi Maximo said.

Maximo is leading the Junior division ranking with his impressive performances bagging the championship in the 1st and 2nd legs, a criterium race and a circuit race, respectively; a second place finish in the 4th leg--Tour of Clark-ITT (2nd Place), Tour of Clark-Circuit Race (champion), Tour of Clark-Road Race (2nd Place).

He failed to compete in the 3rd leg, the Tour of Subic, due to a conflict of schedule, when he went to the US to honor an invitation to join some US junior cycling events.
 
“Let’s just see what happens. One thing I can assure you, nobody gives up. Di palupig ang bisdak oi. But being able to represent Cebu in a sports event is already big deal for me,” Maximo said of today’s race. /CORRESPONDENTs MARS G. ALISON and jonas panerio

CEBU, Philippines - Ang batan-ong cycling sensation sa Sugbu nga si Luis Miguel 'Igimax' Maximo subli na sab mopakita sa iyang abilidad sa 5th leg sa 2010 Philippine Premiere Cycling League Championship Series didto sa Macapagal Avenue, Parañaque City.

Si Maximo mao karon ang paboritong modaog sa junior class sa maong series human usab sa sunod-sunod niyang pagpangharos sa milabay'ng tulo ka leg nga una niyang gisalmotan.

Napakyas pagsalmot si Maximo sa third leg didto sa Subic tungod kay milarga siya sa Estados Unidos alang sa laing event. Paningkamotan ni Maximo nga makabawi siya karon sa iyang pagsalmot sa individual time trial (ITT) nga iyang taakon ang rota sa gilay-on nga 30 kilometros.

“ITT event is difficult for me. I don’t get to practice it because we don’t have many ITT races in Cebu,” matud pa ni Igimax.

Gawas sa kakulang sa ensayo, suliran usab ni Igimax ang iyang bisiklita kay usa kini ka roadbike ug dili haom alang sa ITT event.

Bisan pa niini, ang 15-anyos nga tinun-an sa Springdale School misaad nga buhaton ang tanan aron makahatag og dungog alang sa Sugbu. (BANAT NEWS)

MAXIMO: CESAFI CONCERNED OF ATHLETE'S WELFARE

Mike Limpag, Sports Editor


THE Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) isn’t just all about the games but is also concerned with welfare of the studies of each athlete.

Cesafi’s goal is “building champions off and on and the field,” which is why they had a thorough six-hour screening of the football players last Aug. 12.

Cesafi requires college students to pass 60 percent of their subjects. High school students must pass all.

Jonathan Maximo, as the tournament manager in Cesafi’s football tournament, shares the advocacy and said it’s the reason he has shown his support.

“Looking back made me realize that a sports event can somehow make or unmake a person, particularly the youth. Depending on the thrust of a sports organization it can make a youth to become an elite athlete, as in the case of the national sports associations (NSA), representing the country in international competitions, or, as in the case of Cesafi and other school leagues—guide the youth to balance academic and sports.

Cesafi clearly ‘uses’ sports to mold the youth of today become the leaders of tomorrow,” said Maximo in an e-mail to Sun.Star Cebu.

The Cesafi football tournament will kick off on Sept. 4 at the University of San Carlos-Technology Center.

The USC-North Campus will face the University of San Jose-Recoletos at 1 p.m., while the University of Southern Philippines Foundation face the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu in the high school division.

Rick Gabuya, Sports Editor


AS the other 14 sporting events of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) comes off wraps this 9 a.m., the football event welcomes its newest partner, the Cebu Amateur Football Club (CAFC).

The CAFC headed by its president Glenn Quisido, a former varasity player, has answered the appeal made by CESAFI to help the league in any way.

“We want to engage the alumni group, the same as what the UAAP is doing. True enough, the club heeded the call. CAFC came forward to help, and we are very delighted,” said Maxi Maximo, the designated tournament director of the 10th CESAFI Football Championship.

The CAFC will take care of the technical management of the tournament.

With the participation of the CAFC, Maximo said CESAFI could now concentrate on how to bring the games closer to the public.

Aside from football and basketball, which has already started, other CESAFI events are volleyball, swimming, athletics, badminton, chess, dancesports, lawn tennis, table tennis, taekwondo, karatedo, scrabble, sepak takraw and beach volleyball.

This year, football drew a record 10 schools in both collegiate and secondary divisions.

Vying in the collegiate class are defending champions University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R), University of San Carlos (USC), University of the Visayas (UV), University of Cebu (UC) and University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF).

Competing in the secondary level are defending champions Don Bosco Technology Center, USPF, USC-North Campus, USJ-R and Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC).

The college champion will represent Cebu in the PRISAA Regional Finals.

The tournament will have a league-type format in the elimination with the top four teams advancing to the knockout semifinal round.
 
While the opening ceremonies will be held today, games will start Sept. 4 for secondary at the USC Talamban Campus and Sept. 5 for the collegiate division at the same venue. /CORRESPONDENT MARS G. ALISON

We want to engage the alumni group, the same as what Manila is doing. True enough, the club heeded the call and we are very delighted.”

CEBU, Philippines – Niño Surban, who missed the Uling Road Race a few months back, made up for his absence by posting a convincing win in the Naga-Toledo Road Race over the weekend.

Surban defeated defending champion Rolly Cabaluna for the top spot with ease, showing to the rest that he is set for a grand comeback in the national squad.

Nilo Barbalose still has the energy to beat younger cyclists to bag the third place honors over Joseph Miller and Marjun Villarosa.

The sixth to 10th placers in the mountainbike open were Albert Basirgo, Marvin Tapik, Baruy Carbonera, Diego Abrenica and Adonis Bohol.

In the road racer action, Ramon Espinosa defended his tile in class B.

Espinosa prevented former Tour Pilipinas champion Rolando Pagnanawon from taking away his throne, while another daring pedal-pusher Tyre Lambo wound up third. Orlan Toring landed fourth and Dadong Carcueva settled for fifth.

From third place, Ronnie Adlawan finally grabbed the class A crown at the expense of Raddy Bacayo as Ryan Ocañada landed third.

Junior cyclist Luis Miguel "IgiMax" Maximo, who is sponsored by OzRacing and Maximax Airconditioning, stole part of the limelight by placing seventh out of the 29 entries under class C.

Gary Fernandez, on the other hand, dethroned Jaime Noynay after outsmarting the latter in the final stretch of the race.

Felix Guerrera placed third over Roy Villavelez, while Danny Ermitanio wound up fifth. (FREEMAN)

MAXIMO TO HELP PROMOTE CESAFI FOOTBALL

CEBU, Philippines – Former Cebu Football Association president Jonathan "Maxi" Maximo is back with the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI), this time not as tournament manager but as "promoter" of the football event.

Due to other obligations and priorities, Maximo refused to take the position as tournament manager, but has agreed to help in the promotion of Cebu's premiere inter-school league.

"Wala nako gidawat ang tournament manager position. Tabang lang ta kay nisangpit man ang CESAFI. Lisud balibaran ang CESAFI kay na-varsity baya ta sa una pud nya nalibre atong tuition," Maximo said.

In one of CESAFI's memorandum, however, Maximo has been named as tournament manager but he said the position is not important but it's getting the job well done.

With Maximo back in the CESAFI picture, he said, "we appeal to all stakeholders (players, coaches, officials, fans) of CESAFI football to read, understand and appreciate the CESAFI ground rules, especially on the ruling on player's eligibility. This is to avoid conflicts and controversies in the future like the correct interpretation of the rules, walkouts, schedules, forfeitures of games, etc".

In line with this, Maximo reminded all the participating schools in today's screening of players for football and other events of CESAFI.

The screening of athletes will be done at 10 am at the University of Southern Philippines Foundation in Brgy. Lahug.

"In order for them (participating schools) to get easy access to the rules, team maX1mo has uploaded the CESAFI ground rules at http://www.pabolfc.com/ website. We advised them to download and print a copy and discuss this among the team members and officials. The head coach, who is responsible for the submission of the players list for screening, should be well versed in the provisions of the rules, especially on eligibility," Maximo added.

In CESAFI football, each team will submit 20 players. If a player submitted will be found out to be ineligible, the coach cannot replace it with another player. In the worst case scenario, if nine of his players are disqualified, the team is only left with 11 players. (THE FREEMAN)

CEBU, Philippines - Mobalik na sa Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) ang kanhi presidente sa Cebu Football Association nga si Jonathan 'Maxi' Maximo, apan dili na tournament manager kun dili promoter sa football event.

Gumikan sa uban mga obligasyon, si Maximo mibalibad sa pagdawat sa posisyon isip tournament manager, apan motabang lang siya pag-promote sa premiere inter-school league dinhi sa Sugbu.

"Wala nako gidawat ang tournament manager position. Tabang lang ta kay nisangpit man ang CESAFI. Lisud balibaran ang CESAFI kay na varsity baya ta sa una pud nya na libre atong tuition," matud pang Maximo.

Tungod niini, gipahinumduman ni Maximo ang tanang partisipanteng tunghaan sa screening sa mga players karong alas-10 sa buntag diha sa University of Southern Philippines Foundation sa Brgy. Lahug.

Sa CESAFI football, ang matag koponan moduso og 20 ka players. Kun ang player nga ilang naduso mahibaw-ang ineligible, ang coach dili na makapuli og laing player. Pananglitan, siyam sa iyang players ma-disqualified, ang nahabiling 11 ka players mao na lang ang moduwa. – BANAT NEWS
