ON Semi TMC Sees Action in Division K Quartethlon

Ernesto "Jun" Lomuntad Jr. from Area 76 won the Overall Championship while Voltaire "Volts" Victoria became Runner-Up in today's Division K Quartethlon. This means Jun advances to the District level (Philippines) competition on October 7 in Antipolo. Congratulations, guys!

The Division Quartethlon was held at the Forum Hall of the Casino Filipino in Paranaque and started at 8:30am. In Impromptu Speaking, the table topic was:

If you were at a party abroad, who would you be most interested in talking to: a billionaire, a hollywood actress or an Olympic gold medalist.

Norrie chose the billionare (Microsoft's Bill Gates); Les chose the athlete (Ian Thorpe, Olympic Swimmer); Jun chose the athlete (Lance Armstrong, Tour-de-France Cyclist); and Volts chose the actress (Marlyn Monroe).

In the Evaluation Speech Contest, the test speaker was Aret Esconde from DHL and the title of her speech was "A 15 peso ride and a Free Movie". Her speech was about her observations in an MRT ride. It was humorous and all the evaluation speeches were good. Les won the Runner-Up Award in this category.
