Jet Ramos, an Ibaloy triathlete and banker from the Philippines, made history in 2020 when he qualified for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. Ramos is the first Igorot to qualify for the Ironman World Championship, which is considered the pinnacle of triathlon.

Ramos's journey to the Ironman World Championship is an inspiration to people of all backgrounds. He started his triathlon career in 2016, and he has been steadily improving ever since. In 2019, he won the Ironman 70.3 Philippines, and he has since gone on to compete in several other Ironman races around the world.

Ramos's story is one of determination and perseverance. He has faced many challenges along the way, but he has never given up on his dream of competing in the Ironman World Championship. He is an inspiration to anyone who has ever set a goal for themselves and has been told that it is impossible to achieve.

Ramos's story is also a reminder that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. He comes from a small village in the Philippines, and he had no prior experience with triathlon when he first started. But he was determined to succeed, and he worked hard to overcome his challenges.

Ramos competed in the Ironman 70.3 Xiamen in China in 2020, where he finished sixth out of 197 competitors in his age group with a total time of 4 hours and 40 minutes. His strong performance earned him a slot in the 2020 Ironman World Championship.

Unfortunately, the 2020 Ironman World Championship was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Ramos's qualification is still a testament to his hard work and dedication. He is an inspiration to triathletes all over the world, and he shows us that anything is possible if we set our minds to it.
