Regine Tugade representing Guam in Rio

Regine Tugade was awarded one of the two Athletics universality spots on the Guam National team earlier this month to compete in the 2016 Olympics. Tugade will be one of five athletes competing for Guam and will race in the 100-meter dash.

The Rio2016 Olympic Games is slated for August 5-21 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The women’s 100-meter dash preliminary race is slated for Friday, August 12 at 11:55 a.m. Following the preliminaries, the first round of heats will follow at 10:40 p.m.

Tugade has already competed on the international stage, as she ran the 100m in the 2015 World Track and Field Championships, which were held at the Beijing National Stadium. She placed 51st out of 54 runners, crossing the tape at 12.60.

Tugade currently holds the Guam National record in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.26. She set the mark at the 2015 IIAAG high school track and field league meet, surpassing previous record-holder Pollara Cobb’s mark of 12.55.

The members of Team Guam where chosen by their respective National Federation and vetted by Guam National Olympic Committee (GNOC) body. Each National Federation (NF) accredited member submitted their long list of qualifiers for the Olympic Games in 2015. From this list the short list was presented in 2016. Each athlete had to compete in Olympic Qualifiers held by their International Federations to achieve points towards Rio2016. From this process, 1998 Navy graduate Dr. Peter Lombard II qualified for Cycling’s Mountain Bike event on merit. Lombard was also a Triathlon bronze medalist in the 2015 Pacific Games. GNOC was advised that Guam was granted two universality slots, one male and one female each, for Swimming and Athletics.
