In one of the world’s most dangerous sports, it takes a lot of guts, courage, and hard work to attain such discipline in the world of motor sports. Just like this young lad from Ozamiz City. He makes sure that in every competition he is at; he always gives his best and doesn’t forget to thank God for all of his accomplishments.
Born Shawn Labisores on July 17, 1999 in Ozamiz City, this 6-foot-1 Motocross rider and basketball player is currently studying at Misamis University.
Shawn started motocross when he went to Manila and was taught by his good friend. “I joined some tournaments and in my first ride, I was so nervous but then, I won third place in that competition”, quipped Shawn.
“I find motocross a very thrilling sport. I know it’s a dangerous sports but I really feel the excitement especially if my motor flies in midair. It’s an ecstatic feeling”, added Shawn.
“Yung pinakamahirap sa motocross talaga yung kapag ma-ulan kasi sobrang dulas kapag umuulan at yung pinakamasarap sa motocross yung pinapalipad mo yung motor mo at ang daming mong fans lalo na kapang nananalo ka. Yun talaga ang pinaka maganda sa lahat”, said Shawn.
Aside from motocross, his other hobby is basketball. He became a varsity player for University of Perpetual Help in Las Pinas City. His ambition in my life is to be the number 1 motocross rider and become a PBA player someday.
