Central Luzon State University gave Aries Bañez Toledo a hero’s welcome last August 29 following his winning the gold medal in the Men’s Decathlon event of the 29th Southeast Asian Games held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

University officials, faculty and staff members, and students took turns in congratulating him and expressing their happiness over his outstanding feat.

Toledo was awarded a Certificate of Recognition and a cash prize.

Toledo, 23, a student of the CLSU College of Education and a native of Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija, was lauded by his co-athletes, coaches and by CLSU officials led by President Tereso A. Abella for bringing honors not only to CLSU and to his town and province, but also to the whole country.
