A Philippine Army (PA) athlete won the championship in the Altitude Obstacle Course Races World Championships held at the Mount Everest Basecamp in Nepal from November 8 to 22.

In a statement Friday, PA spokesperson Col. Xerxes Trinidad said Staff Sgt. Andrico S. Mahilum won the competition.

“(He) bagged the championship after besting professional obstacle athletes from India, Nepal, United Kingdom, Canada, Greece, Australia, South Africa, USA, Poland, Hungary, Spain, Portugal, and Brazil,” he said.

Mahilum’s teammate, Cpl. Ailene Tolentino, finished third place in the women’s category that was ruled by compatriot Sandi Abahan of Baguio City, Trinidad added.

Athletes who joined the Altitude Obstacle Course Races had to hurdle Mount Everest’s high altitude to be declared a winner.

The feat capped the series of local and international wins clinched by Mahilum and Tolentino this year.

Meanwhile, PA Special Service Center director, Col. John Oliver F. Gabun, lauded the two for bringing glory and honor not just to the PA but to the country as well.

“You overcame challenges, braved the unforgiving weather, and conquered the mountain. Kudos and continue to banner the Army’s brand of excellence in your chosen sport,” Gabun said.
