LEGAZPI CITY, Apr 12 (PIA) – Daniela Camonoga of Quibongbongan, Gunobatan Albay notched the first gold medal for the Bicol region in the ongoing Palarong Pambansa in Albay.

The 13 year old lass, also 13th of 16 siblings, topped the elementary girl’s shot put competition with a winning heave of 9.42 meters held yesterday at the Albay Sports and Tourism Complex in Bicol University.

Emgiel Duran of the Negros Island Region claimed the silver medal with her 9.15-meter mark while Western Visayas bet Valerie Cassandra took the bronze with 9.01m.

Camonoga earned her ticket to the Palaro as she finished second on the regional meet held in Camarines Sur last February.
