August Benedicto: A Struggling Young Kid Who Soon Made Podiums

Take a look a this video as August looks back to his humble beginnings.

Growing up in the countryside, life was not easy for the young August Benedicto. He developed a passion for running, which brought him to “eat roads for breakfast”. To help him with his financial needs in school, he sold ice in the neighbourhood before going to school. His situation did not deter him to dream and his aspirations guided him to take the track which led him to where he is now.

From being an ice vendor, August Benedicto not only created ripples but great waves as he made podium finish in triathlon races. He is a two – time Ironman 70.3 Cebu Filipino Male Elite Champion.

August Benedicto proved it that perseverance, determination, and hardwork will take you where your dreams are.
