Athletes, officials come to Remolino’s aid

MANILA, Philippines – The sports community has banded together to help 2019 Southeast Asian Games triathlon silver medalist Kim Remolino, whose house in Talisay, Cebu was burned to the ground last Sunday.

The first to come to the 19-year-old Remolino’s aid were Go for Gold’s Jeremy Go and Philippine Olympic Committee and PhilCycling president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino.

Go, a staunch supporter of cycling, will spearhead an auction to race funds while Tolentino said the POC will donate P50,000 and another P50,000 from his own pocket.

“We will be conducting an online auction to benefit the (Remolino) family,” said Go. “Our cycling and triathlon teams are also donating part of their allowances.”

“Yes, we will give,” said Tolentino.

Triathlon chief Tom Carrasco also extended a helping hand.

“Everyone from the national team and the community is helping,” he said.

Remolino took the silver behind eventual gold medal winner John Chicano in last December’s SEAG and remains as one of the country’s biggest hopes in the international circuit.
