Pentathletes Michael Comaling and Princess Honey Arbilon have brought their winning act in the Southeast Asian Games last year to the first virtual laser run competition in the region.

6:58, followed by fellow Aussie Rhys Lanskey (7:01) as eight participants, counting bets from New Zealand and Singapore, took part.

Arbilon, who seized the mixed team relay gold medal in the laser run with Samuel German during the Southeast Asian Games in Subic, finished just a second behind Australian Aleska Van Heekeren (7:26) for the title of the run and shoot discipline in the women’s side.


Arbilon’s time of 7:27, however, propelled her to the team gold relay with Comaling, the men’s beach triathlete champion in the SEA Games.
