DLSZ deployed its very own home-grown triathletes in the NCC TRIATHLON on October 19 and 20. The said race is the inaugural event of the world-class facilities of the New Clark City Aquatic Center and Athletic Stadium, where the Southeast Asian Games 2019 will be held.
More than 700 participants of the NCC Triathlon were the first to use the pools at the Aquatics Center and the track oval at the Athletics Stadium.
