BAGUIO CITY -- A girl from Baguio City is now tagged as the fastest woman in the Philippines.

Athlete Katherine "Khay" Santos is now the fastest woman in the Philippines after bagging the gold medal in 2015 Philippine National Open-Invitational Athletics Championship.

She finished the 100-meter dash in just 11.99 seconds.

Katherine has won in various national and international games.

She was a silver and bronze medalist in the Southeast Asian Games in 2011 and 2013.

Katherine is eyed as the next Lydia De Vega, but she said that her aim is to be a long jump queen.

She is currently training in Manila for her next game in Southeast Asia that will be held in Singapore.
