By 8:00 PM

The victory of being the strongest and fastest among the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines contenders shall come with an exceptional trophy envisioned by internationally renowned designer Kenneth Cobonpue, and crafted by the metal artisans of Suarez and Son.

The trophies feature flowing metal figures, which showcase the three categories in triathlon. These perfectly represent the movement involved in the sport, and each is plated with gold, silver, and bronze. The figures rest on a wooden base for the female division and on a metal base for the male division.

And since this year’s ironman shall be held in Mactan Shangri-La on August 4, it is fitting to showcase the artistry of these world-class Cebuanos through these commemorative prizes.

It is interesting to note that Suarez and Son also made the trophies for the Ironman competition last year as well.

A Legacy as Strong as Iron

Stronger than the physique of these Ironman athletes is the legacy behind Suarez and Son. The superior metal craftsmanship of the company has a long history dating back to 1953. 

Today, after the evolution of technology in the field of metal crafts, Suarez and Son continue to stay true to its tradition of excellence in quality and artistry. This dedication has upheld their reputation as the top supplier of commemorative school and corporate rings, trophies, emblems, plaques, and other metal crafts all over the country. Students from all over the Philippines treasure their college memorabilia created by Suarez and Son.

Included in their long list of projects are Coca-cola’s commemorative pins and bottle markers for its 100th anniversary, Avon’s brass miniature liberty bells to mark its centennial anniversary, a pure gold medallion for the King of Thailand, the medals for the 1995 and 2005 Southeast Asian Games, and the commemorative Pedro Calungsod coins, which were brought to the pope for the saint’s canonization. 

According to Suarez, the secret behind their continued success is the passion for outstanding workmanship that drives all stakeholders of the company.

Now on its 60th year, Suarez and Son has placed its commitment and legacy of metal craftsmanship in the making of the Cobra Ironman 70.3 trophies. And just as how each of their clients still hold their Suarez-made memorabilia in their respective homes, the winners of this triathlon shall surely have these trophies to always remember this significant victory.
