SBR.ph 4th Awards Night 2015: Winners and Pictures Here…

This is my first time to attend the SwimBikeRun.ph (SBR.ph) awards night at the Alphaland Makati City Club last Tuesday night and i was hobnobbing with some of the most well-esteemed local multisport athletes and movers of the sport of triathlon.

Now on its 4th year, SBR.ph, the first and premiere multisport source, have been holding it’s annual SBR.ph Awards to give recognition to the Filipino athletes who shaped and carved this growing multisport landscape in the country.

SBR.ph founder, Carlos De Guzman, one of triathlon’s early movers is providing recognition for people in the multisport world who has helped advance and promote triathlon. A known influencer who has exemplified a passion for uplifting and promoting the sport, Carlos has gathered triathletes and fans of the sport from here and abroad to vote for winners, specifically from his SBR.ph website in various categories.

There are no pre-selected judges as the winners are chosen by the SBR.ph fans and the entire Philippine triathlon community.

Here’s a glimpse of the awarding ceremonies at the Alphaland which was capped by delectable appetizers, drinks and brief speeches of the awardees themselves.
