Philippines aims for top-three finish in 2019 SEA Games

After a very successful stint in the 2018 Asian Games held in Jakarta and Palembang in Indonesia which saw the Philippines finish 19th out of 46 participating nations, the country aims to finish at least third when the 30th South East Asian Games roll along in the archipelago next year.  In the previous edition held in Kuala Lumpur last year, the Philippines finished sixth out of 11 nations, ending the Games with a 24 golds, 33 silver and 64 bronzes in the medal count. With the country hosting for the first time since the top overall finish in Manila back in 2005, Philippine Olympic Committee President Ricky Vargas aims to replicate the successful hosting of the events 13 years prior. "I hope it all works out. To perform well. Our goal is to host well. Our goal is to be in the Top 3," Vargas said in between PBA games on Sunday.  Vargas also added that Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, who is also the SEA Games organizing committee chairman, had already presented the budget proposal to Congress for appropriation in the 2019 National Budget. With that said, all participating countries will meet again at Clark in Pampanga, which will be the center of the Games, this November to see the progress of the venues there, and possibly add an event, particularly skateboarding to the Games. "We'll surprise you in skateboard. There are two other skateboard artists we're looking at that will really play the game. So we are really blessed with skateboard."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

PBA: Brownlee will trade 35 points for triple-double

By now, everyone knows that Justin Brownlee can score. Sunday at the Manila Clasico, Brownlee dropped 35 for Ginebra, leading the Gin Kings to a huge win over Magnolia in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. However, Brownlee shot 11-of-24 from the field and personally, the prolific import would gladly trade his 35 points for a nice triple double. Or anything close to that. "Having a triple double means you did a lot of other things on the court," Brownlee said after scoring 35 points on top of "only" eight rebounds and four assists. "And I don't look at myself as just a scorer. I like to rebound, I'm a passer. So I think having a triple double shows more of my game," he added. Regardless of his stats, the most important thing for Brownlee and the Gin Kings right now is getting wins. Ginebra now has won back-to-back contests in the mid-season joust and has been revived with a 3-5 mark. "Overall, it's our best game. Whenever you can win by 20 plus you know you can feel good about it," Brownlee said. "At the same time you can't be satisfied, we're still fighting for the playoffs," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
