Andrew Pirie and Airnel Abarra have started a new athletics website, Pinoy Athletics. Primarily focused on the most relevant issues on Filipino track & field, the site will also dish out articles on the wider international scene.
Originally associated with Moriel Carreon’s Pinoymiler, the duo had branched out from their roots to cover a wider range of topics.
Pirie, with his impressive grasp of track & field statistics, is popularly known as the “Ernie Baron of Philippine Athletics.” The Filipino-New Zealander is a sprinter who has represented Mapua Insitute of Technology in our local NCAA. He is currently based in Australia, occasionally flying over to Manila to compete.
Armed with a Master’s Degree in Human Movement Science, Abarra is well-schooled in the science of sport. The Laguna-born Airnel is a public school teacher. His one-man coverage of the 2012 Palarong Pambansa athletics events rivaled even those from established media outfits.
With Pinoy Miler and Pinoy Athletics as its one-two punch, Philippine track & field now has a more potent web presence.
