SEA Games: Team PHI hauls 23 gold medals in Day 1

Team Philippines tied its total gold medal output two years ago with a deluge of mints in Day 1 of the 30th Southeast Asian Games on Sunday. The host bets burned the dance floor with 10 gold medals in dancesport while Rambo Chicano opened the flood gates as he drew first blood for the host nation. A total of 23 gold medals went to the coffers of the Philippines as it duplicated the country’s total output in Kuala Lumpur two years ago. The PHI actually won 24 gold in 2017 but was stripped of its lone gold in equestrian after Colin Syquia was disqualified after his horse Adventure E tested positive of banned a substance.   Chicano made up for the absence of two-time gold medalist Nikko Huelgas, who came up short for qualifying in the competition, as he crossed the finish line with a clocking of 1:53:26 at the Subic Bay Boardwalk to deliver the Philippines its first gold medal. But it was the dancesport team that took the spotlight as the Filipino dancers strutted their way to 10 mints at the Royce Hotel in Clark. Only four gold medals out of the 14 mints at stake slipped from the hands of the home team. Partners Wilbert Aunzo and Pearl Marie Caneda collected gold medals in single dance samba, single dance chacha and single dance rumba. Michael Angelo Marquez and Stephanie Sabalo won golds in pasodoble, jive and all five dances so while the tandem of Sean Aranar and Ana Nualla won in tango and Viennese Waltz while the pair of Mark Gayon and Mary Joy Renigen ruled the waltz and foxtrot. At the Angeles University Foundation in Pampanga, arnis accounted for five gold from Jezebel Morcillo in women’s bantamweight, Dexter Bolambao in men’s bantamweight, Villardo Cunamay in men’s lightweight, Nino Mark Talledo in men’s featherweight and Mark Banares in men’s welterweight.        In wushu, Agatha Wong notched Team PHI's second gold of the day with a succesful defense of her women's taijiquan crown at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. Tokyo Olympics bet Caloy Yulo opened his gymnastics campaign with a gold medal in the men’s all-around at the Rizal Memorial Stadium. Two gold medals came from sepak takraw in the men’s and women’s hoop events while Kim Mangrobang completed the Philippines’ triathlon win after ruling the distaff side. Rick Jason Senales men’s 90 kg. while IM Jan Emmanuel Garcia bagged the gold in online chess. The Philippines won 12 silver and nine bronze medals to close out Day 1. Alisson Perticheto and Christopher Caluza bagged silver medals in women’s and men’s figure skating, respectively.  Kim Remolino finished second to Chicano while Kim Kilgroe gave the Filipinas a 1-2 finish in triathlon. Other silver medalists were Jude Oliver Rodriguez (arnis), John Fabliar Ceniza (weightlifting), Niño Surban (cycling), Jenielou Mosqueda (kurash), Michael Angelo Marquez and Stephanie Sabalo and partners Mark Jayson Gayon and Mary Joy Renigen (dancsport), men’s polo and men’s water polo......»»

When the Philippines showed its best as SEA Games hosts in 1981, 1991 and 2005

Hosting the biennial Southeast Asian Games, just like any international multi-sport competition, offers an opportunity for a country to flaunt its best—in terms of organizing the event, making the tournament stand-out, and unleash a vaunted athletic campaign against the region’s best. Before this year’s SEA Games, the Philippines has hosted the SEA Games three times—all of which were momentous and ground-breaking. And in each successive staging, the Filipinos went up the medal standings, reaching the top in the country’s most successful showing in international sports when the country last hosted the biennial event 14 years ago. 1981 This was the first time the Philippines took the cudgels in hosting the Games. Already in its 11th staging, the SEA Games became a centerpiece event of President Ferdinand Marcos’s presidency, as it highlighted his administration’s heightened focus on sports development. This was through the initiative of Marcos nephew Michael Keon’s Gintong Alay program.  The Games was known as the launching pad of Asia’s sprint queen Lydia de Vega, who marveled everyone with her speed and track prowess that earned her the Gold in record-breaking performances in the 100, 200, and women’s relay teams. Isidro del Prado was another track phenom, ruling the 400 meters also in record fashion. The Games was the breakthrough year in Philippine sports as it produced a bountiful harvest in Golds from track and field, cycling, bowling, boxing, basketball, swimming, and weightlifting, among others. The Philippines ended at third, its highest place at the time, with 55 golds, 55 silvers, and 77 bronze medals for a total 187 medals. 1991 Ten years after its impressive first-ever SEA Games hosting, a new government and political climate enveloped the biennial meet. Under President Corazon Aquino, the 16th SEA Games showed the remarkable change the country attained since the 1986 EDSA Revolution, which would be emphasized with an astonishing medal performance, almost topping the 16th edition if not for Indonesia’s marathon gold.  Swimming took the spotlight with ace tanker Eric Buhain capturing a record six golds, making him the most bemedalled athlete, and Akiko Thompson becoming the crowd darling, donning two golds. Bea Lucero also achieved a first-ever milestone of being the only athlete to win medals in two sporting events—two golds in gymnastics in 1987 Jakarta and a gold in the bantamweight division of women’s taekwondo in the 1991 Manila games. A 27 year-old Lydia de Vega-Mercado reclaimed the Asian sprint queen title by winning the Gold in the 100 meters over compatriot Elma Muros and Malaysian Goldivasamy Shanti. Muros, however, won the 100 meter hurdles and won the long jump gold for four successive stagings—a SEA Games first.  The Philippines would rule several sport events with a gold rush in swimming, boxing, basketball, shooting, wushu, track and field, taekwondo, bowling, billiards, among others. Its 91 Gold, 62 Silver, 84 Bronze, and 237 total medal count was good for second. 2005 It took fourteen years before Manila hosted the SEA Games again. And in 2005, its rise as the regional powerhouse in sports was completed with the contingent under the administration of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo reaching the top of the medal standings.  The 23rd  staging was unprecedented, starting with the Opening Ceremonies being held at the Quirino Grandstand instead of a sports stadium, drawing an immense live audience—estimated as the largest ever for a sports event at 200,000. It was the grandest, having the widest array of sports legends appearing in the grand parade of colors, such as SEA Games legends Lydia de Vega-Mercado and Akiko Thompson, Olympic silver medalist Onyok Velasco, top basketball player Allan Caidic, and champion equestrienne Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski. When the Philippine delegates arrived, they were accompanied by Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman, actress Angel Locsin, and then World Boxing Council Lightweight Champion Manny Pacquiao.  Best of all, the Philippines erased the stigma of being the “sick man” of Asian sports, as it won golds left and right, even in sport events it was not usually dominant. Diver Sheila Mae Perez, swimmer Miguel Molina, rower Benjamin Tolentino Jr., and billiards ace Alex Pagulayan were the winningest Filipino athletes with three golds each. Wushu had the most golds with 11, followed by track and field, aquatics, boxing, billiards and snooker, taekwondo, traditional boat race, fencing, wrestling, bowling, judo, and archery. In addition, the Philippines won golds in arnis, karatedo, muay, rowing, shooting, lawn tennis, cycling, dance sports, golf, gymnastics, softball, baseball, lawn balls, equestrian, and pencak silat.  In total, the Philippines won the overall championship with an astonishing 113 gold, 84 silver, 94 bronze, and 291 total medal haul—its best ever in international competitions. Will the Philippines match or eclipse its historic achievement 14 years ago and continue its rise in the medal tally when it hosts the biennial event? Catch the 30th SEA Games in various locations in the Philippines from Saturday, November 30 until Wednesday, December 11 on ABS-CBN S+A, ABS-CBN S+A HD, Liga, Liga HD, iWant Sports, and sports.abs-cbn.com. .....»»
