They are 8-year-old Trump Luistro, and 11-year-old Isis Arnaldo, who competed at the Invitational Swimming Championship held at the Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) last August 6-7.

Luistro got three gold medals in the 200-meter free relay, 200-meter medley relay and 50-meter breaststroke, and two bronze medals in the 100-meter breaststroke and 50-meter butterfly. Arnaldo, on the other hand, was awarded two gold medals for besting competitors in the 50-meter breaststroke and 50-meter medley relay.

Luistro, a Grade 3 student of the Legazpi Hope Christian School competed in the under 8 years old category while Arnaldo, a grade 6 student of Saint Agnes Academy, competed in the under 12 years old category.

On August 24, Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara met and congratulated Luistro at the Albay Governor's Office.

Meanwhile, Mayor Noel Rosal said the city government of Legazpi will provide full support for the two athletes to prepare them for a competition in Japan in October. (With report from Emmanuel P. Solis, PNA)
