Unknown to most relatively uninitiated pageant followers, Alexandra Faith Garcia of Olongapo is a full-pledged triathlete who finished the tough and highly-demanding Tri-United that filled the stretch from Subic Bay to Porac, Pampanga last October 25, 2015. She trained hard for that physical challenge and was successful in completing the task with a finisher’s medal as proof. That mission also kept her away from platform heels, two-piece swimsuits and evening gowns for more than a year after a Top 10 finish during Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014.
This year, Faith has returned to the pageant scene and how. She has successfully passed the screenings and is now a certified Binibini for Bb. Pilipinas 2016. A product of Kagandahang Flores, she now sports a leaner and more shapely figure with toned muscles and a more highly-charged resistance to the boiling pressure of the nationals. And I bet she will give the other contenders a good fight should BPCI start a sporting side event for the pre-pageant activities.
But more than that, what is your take on Faith? I see her as good competitor who can step up her bid for a crown just as much as the next well-prepared challenger. She has the charm and poise to go head-to-head with anyone in that department. And if our focus is transfixed on the early favorites, she just might take the opportunity to zoom on her own merits when everyone’s not looking. After all, patience and discipline could be her best suits. And she can use this to maximize her game plan for Bb. Pilipinas. 😉
