Coach Ani De Leon-Brown
“As a coach and a triathlete like myself, I know what a race like the North Pole Marathon will require of each participant. I know how much training he needs and I will be collaborating with Louie’s coach Ige Lopez to make sure that Louie is in tip-top shape when he gets there in the North Pole. Louie is going to be our country’s representative to the race so all the support he will need, we will give. All for the Philippines!”
