Neil Catiil, a 23-year-old pride of Cagayan de Oro, blew away the local field that included former national triathlon champion Fil-Am Arland Macasieb and last year’s top RP finisher Noy Jopson to emerge the best Filipino finisher in the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines at the Camsur Water Sports Complex here yesterday. Catiil timed 4:37.10 to finish eighth overall and bag the local purse worth P50,000. Australian Pete Jacobs and Canadian Magali Tisseyre, born on the same day on Oct. 27, 1981, won the event.
