How Diego changed from cocky to cool racer

  Actor Diego Loyzaga was the first to admit that he could be a tad "wild" on the racetrack. So when Diego was tapped to join the third season of History Channel's reality racing tilt "Celebrity Car Wars," not a few observers pointed out that he had his work cut out for him. Diego recounted that host Bobby Tonelli had dismissed him, at the start of the competition, as "very cocky, obnoxious, a typical 20-year-old with a heavy foot, who was always in a rush." Diego owned up: "I was a leadfoot. I just wanted to go fast all the time." But as the show progressed, Diego related, the host had noticed marked changes in the young man-in-a-hurry. "Bobby said that I beca...Keep on reading: How Diego changed from cocky to cool racer.....»»

ASIAN GAMES: Pinoy gymnasts hold chances high

JAKARTA -- Asian Games rookies Carlos Edriel Yulo and Reyland Capellan expressed optimism on their chances for a podium finish when they plunge into action in men’s artistic competition of the gymnastics event that kicks off Monday at the Jakarta International Expo Kanayoran Hall D. The 18-year-old Yulo, the prince of the Palarong Pambansa back home, said he wanted to give back to what the Gymnastics Association of the Philippines (GAP) and his country had given him in his preparation for the Games. “I am ready this time at gusto ko pong maipakita ang  buong makakaya ko para makapagwagi ng medalya para sa bansa,” said Yulo, who clinched a silver in floor exercise in the 2018 Doha World Cup in Qatar and a bronze in vault in Melbourne World Cup Gymnastics 2018 in Australia. He also bagged a silver in vault in the Baku World Cup 2018 in Azerbaijan last March 18. Yulo will compete in the individual all-around, horizontal bar, pommel horse, parallel bars, vault, rings and his favorite floor exercise. Capellan, who won gold in floor exercise and bronze in vault in last year’ Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games, also wants to show that he deserves the slot in the national team. “Handa na po akong makipagsabayan sa kanila,” said Capellan, who like Yulo, are on their first tour of duty in Asian Games. Unlike Yulo who will have seven chances to win a gold medal, Capellan will only compete in vault and floor exercise. Jan Gwynn Timbang, the other men’s artistic bet, will take his chances in vault, rings, horizontal bar, pommel horse, parallel bars and floor exercise, Competing in the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics are Ma. Cristina Onofre (balance beam, floor exercise, vault and uneven bars), Carinne Leanne Bunagan (balance beam, floor exercise, vault and uneven bars) and Shieldannah Sabio and Marian Nicole Medina (individual all-around)......»»

ASIAN GAMES: Pinoy netters out to end an 8-year medal drought

PALEMBANG -- Head coach Chris Cuarto is banking on a favorable draw for the Filipino athletes to boost their medal prospects as the 18th Asian Games tennis tournament unfolds on Monday with the singles competitions at the Jakabaring Sports City courts here. “First of all, we will be trying for a good draw, which is our No. 1 goal,” said Cuarto, who has been at the helm of the PHL squad since the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. “The Asian Games field is very high so having a favorable draw helps.” Seeing action in men’s singles are Jeson Patrombon, Francis Casey “Nino” Alcantara, Alberto Lim Jr. while Fil-German Katharina Lehnart and Marian Jade Capadocia are competing in the women’s division, and whose draws or pairings are to be held on Sunday. Also kicking off on Monday is the mixed doubles round-of-32 with Alcantara partnering with Lehnart and Capadocia teaming up with either Lim or Patrombon. “I think we have a good chance at medal in the mixed doubles with the tandem of Alcantra and Lehnart,” Cuarto said, “although I would be happy if any of our players or teams reach the semifinals.” The last time that the country won in the Asian Games tennis tournament was in the 2010 Guangzho Asiad when Fil-Am Cecil Mamiit took the men’s singles bronze then teamed up with fellow Fil-Am Eric Taino in bagging another bronze in the men’s doubles......»»

Biles electrifies on 1st day of US gymnastics championships

BOSTON --- Simone Biles didn't come back after a two-year break from gymnastics to just win. That's not really what it's about for the Olympic champion. She's won enough --- more than enough really --- during her career. And she's got the medals to prove it. The second act of her remarkable career is about something more. At 21, she has a greater appreciation of her own natural abilities than she did when she won four golds at the 2016 Olympics. She wants to find out where all that talent and all that power can take her and her sport. "I have nothing to prove," Biles said. "I can quit if I wanted to." No chance. She's simply too curious to see where this thing goes. Biles dominated...Keep on reading: Biles electrifies on 1st day of US gymnastics championships.....»»
