Her name came from a storybook. Now she has her own story to tell.

Aristen Aricela Ardice Villate Dormitorio placed her name in Philippine sports history, becoming the first gold medal winner in the 2023 Batang Pinoy-Philippine National Games combined after topping the girls’ under-13 criterium in the cycling event on Monday at the Tagaytay City Centrum.

As competitions in all front blast off in different venues around Metro Manila, the 12-year-old student at Hope Integrated School in Fairview drew attention right at the start as her name – made up of four names picked up by her father Donjie from children’s book character – could not fit in the TV monitoring screen.

DORMITORIO

“Opo, ako nga mismo nahihirapan sa pagsusulat ng name ko,” said Dormitorio in jest after the race.

The younger sister of Southeast Asian Games gold medalist Arianna finished the 2.1 km., 30 mins + 3 laps race in 45 minutes and 48.4 seconds besting eight rivals in the grassroots sports development meet organized by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) under the supervision of the Philippine Cycling Federation.

Another QC bet Yvaine Osias placed second with a time of 46:00.8 while Ysabel Nicole Jamero from Iloilo City (Visayas) claimed the bronze medal clocking 46:28.3.

‘Masayang masaya po ako, Yung ginawa naming meditation and prayers ka para sa preparation nagkaroon ng Magandang resulta. Six times a week kami nagtraning halos limang oras kada araw maliban lang pag Lunes,” said Dormitorio.

Dormitorio is eyeing four golds as she set to compete in the Individual Time Trial (ITT), MTB XCO, and XCE.
