MANILA, Philippines - Karen Janario of Leyte Sports Academy-Smart flashed top form to rule the 100m dash in emphatic fashion and crown herself the fastest girl in the Philippine Sports Commission-Philippine Olympic Committee Batang Pinoy Visayas qualifying leg in Maasin, Leyte yesterday.
The 14-year-old Janario, a product of a prototype club that takes in students with big athletic potential, topped the century dash in 13.05 seconds to pick up her second gold of the meet at the Southern Leyte Sports Complex inside Tomas Oppus Pilot School.
Janario earlier topped the 100m hurdles in 15.58 seconds to share the spotlight with Cebu City’s crack bets in athletics and in most other fields.

A 14-year-old from Lezo, Aklan, De Josef set a new Palaro elementary record in 800m running barefoot last year. Yesterday she added the Batang Pinoy golds in 1,500m and 400m.
