MANILA, Philippines — Batangas native Clevic George Daluz led five promising tankers for the Most Outstanding Swimmer (MOS) Award as they collected three gold medals each at the close yesterday of COPA-Golden Goggle Leg 1 and 2 at the Teofilo Yldefonso swimming pool inside the Rizal Memorial Sports Center (RMSC) in Manila.

The Grade 1 student at the Agustin Ramos Memorial Elementary School in Balayan topped the boy’s 8 years old class 50m backstroke in 51.03 seconds and the 100m breaststroke (2:01.11) in a follow-up to his triumph in 200m freestyle (3:36.78) on Saturday in the event powered by Speedo and supported by the Philippine Sports Commission and Milo.

“Masaya po ako kasi po nabigyan ko ng medals ang team namin at ang mama at papa ko,” said Daluz of the Balayan Tigers Swim Team.

The other triple-gold winners were Marcus Pablo, John Rey Lee, Samantha Mia Mendoza and Jamie Aica Summer Sy. They all qualified for the Luzon Championship in August where the top swimmers will clash with the best swimmers from the Visayas and Mindanao regional championships of the tournament organized by the Congress of Philippine Aquatics, Inc. headed by swimming icon Batangas 1st District Rep. Eric Buhain.
