Superstars: Ani de Leon-Brown

Champion triathlete Ani de Leon-Brown is always running toward the finish line, often leaving others in the dust. Ani has competed for most of her life, and she is a three-time Philippine National Triathlete champion and the Philippine record holder for various marathons. At the Ironman Malaysia, she came in first in the female age 30 to 34 category, which earned her a slot in the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. She was the first Filipino woman to join this international competition.

Ani doesn’t stop there. As a coach, she also works to promote sports and a healthy active lifestyle of  as program manager of Pinay In Action: Women Empowerment through Fitness Program and of the SuperKids Triathlon Youth Development Program of the Triathlon Association of the Philippines. She is currently enjoying her son, Dash, whom she gave birth to a few months ago.
