Taclan flexes muscles to win Hawaiian Islands overall title

Tony Taclan is living proof that age doesn't matter when it comes to bodybuilding.

Taclan, at 41, won the overall title at the Hawaiian Islands Bodybuilding Championship at the Blaisdell Center Concert Hall on Saturday.

The manager of the Spa Fitness Center, who also captured the light heavyweight and masters divisions, beat bantamweight Clifton Torres, lightweight Rudy Benigno, middleweight Greg Abernathy and heavyweight Darryl Miller for the evening's top prize.

Brian Ikeda took the title of Junior Hawaiian Islands and Lisa Loney won the Hawaii Fitness contest.


At San Fernando, Calif., the Hawaii Tsunami outshot the Valley Golden Eagles, 17-6, but couldn't buy a goal in the shootout and lost a 2-1 decision yesterday in a United Systems of Independent Soccer Leagues match.

Sweeper James Woolridge, who just joined the team, scored the Tsunami goal off Chris Gilmore's corner kick.

"Fortunately, they only get one point for a shootout victory," Tsunami coach Andrew Rowley said. "They are in second place (in the Pro League) and we play them at home this weekend in two very critical games for us if we hope to make the playoffs."

The Tsunami (4-8 overall, 3-5 Pro League) play the Golden Eagles (7-6 overall, 7-3 Pro League) at Pearl City High School Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at Konawaena High School at 3 p.m.


The Hawaii Island Movers Alumni took a 10-1 lead then held on for an 11-9 exhibition victory over the Movers yesterday at Rainbow Stadium.

Devin Hermosura shut out the Movers on four hits over four innings as his teammates built an 8-0 lead. Reliever Brandon Sagara saw his lead evaporate as the Movers scored six runs in the final three innings to close to 11-9.

In the bottom of the ninth, the Movers had the tying run at the plate with one out and Sean Takamori on second. Sagara struck out Key Voshell then got Darren Blakely to fly out to end the game.

Cory Ishigo, Nohili Naumu and Chris Garnett all drove in two runs for the Alumni.

The Movers were led by Jaime Aloy's 4-for-5 outing.


Manley Young and Wilson Poon advanced to today's 4:30 men's singles final of the Oahu Open tennis tournament with semifinal-round victories at the Diamond Head Tennis center yesterday.

Young defeated Dennis Salvatierra, 6-3, 2-6, 7-6, and Poon topped Andy Long, 6-2, 6-3.

In the men's doubles final yesterday, Chris Bown and Richard Sotelo beat Frank Delgaudio and Jeff Urie, 7-6, 7-5.


Chris Crawford won the Lanikai Bike Path eight-kilometer road race yesterday with a time of 27 minutes, 49 seconds.

Kathy Barcia finished first in the women's division in 33:31.
