SEA Games: PHI sepak takraw bets hope gold medals shine light on sport

SUBIC - The Philippines made history in sepak takraw in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. With their double gold in the women's and men's hoops last Sunday, the Filipinos won an event in the sport for the first time in the regional meet. And for the country's sport officials, that should just be the start. "Out of six (events), sana makakuha tayo ng tatlo. You have to understand that powerhouse Thailand is here, but makatatlo lang tayo, boundary na," Pilipinas Sepak Takraw president Karen Tanchanco-Caballero said. She then continued, "This is the realistic forecast. Sino ba ayaw ng six (golds), but we know our limitations." Still up for grabs in the sport are six gold medals in doubles and regu in the coming days. Whether or not the Philippines gets its goal, though, it already has two golds to show for its trouble - and that is already a much-welcome development. With that, Tanchanco-Caballero said that they are only hoping that this encourages the country's youth to try out sepak takraw. As she put it, "I told (the athletes) that this would make or break the sport in terms of pagkilala. This is very popular in Visayas and Mindanao, but Metro Manila is yet to discover how we are built for the sport." She then continued, "We want to inspire the youth na meron pang ibang sport na magagaling tayo. This is as Filipino as it can get." After all, the Philippine governing body is already going all-out in supporting the growth of the sport. "Our athletes really worked hard. They spent time away from their families and nag-commit talaga sila," its president said while also mentioning that the national team had a three-month camp in Thailand as well as month-long training in South Korea before the regional meet. And of course, that only proved to be a big boost to the Filipinos' gold medal bid. "Yung support ng government, malaking tulong. Pinadala kami sa abroad kaya malaking tulong yun sa preparation," coach Romulo Ruedas said. He then continued, "Pagdating ng panahon, yung Thailand, baka mabi-beat natin." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

SEA Games: Records fall as Team PHI continues hauling in gold medals

Athletics bets reset new marks in their respective events as Team Philippines scooped up more gold medals on different fronts to add to its growing collection on Saturday in the 30th Southeast Asian Games. Kristina Marie Knott won gold and shattered the 2001 meet record set by Supavedee Khawpeag of Thailand in the women’s 200m. dash, clocking 23.01 seconds in the final at the New Clark City Stadium in Tarlac. Knott, who also set the new local standard, broke the old record earlier during the heats with 23.07 seconds only to reset it once again hours later. Khawpeag’s old mark was 23.30 seconds. She surpassed Fil-Canadian teammate Zion Corrales Nelson (23.32 seconds), who broke “Asia’s fastest woman” Lydia De Vega-Mercado’s local record (23.35 seconds) earlier this year in a US NCAA meet. Tokyo Olympics-bound EJ Obiena erased 5.35m 2017 mark of Thai Porranot Purahong by clearing 5.45m to write a new gold standard in men’s pole vault.  Their feat added more glitter to Team Philippines’ total haul of 89 gold medals with 67 silver and 65 bronze. Indonesia is running second with 50-49-58 gold-silver-bronze followed by Vietnam (45-50-64). Poomsae at the Ninoy Aquino stadium accounted for four mints courtesy of Rodolfo Reyes (men’s recognized individual), Jeordan Dominguez (men’s freestyle), Jocel Lyn Ninobla (women’s recognized individual) while Reyes teamed up with Dustin Mella and Raphael Mella to rule the men’s recognized team event. Asian Games champion Margielyn Didal won her second gold medal in the meet with her conquest in women’s skateboarding street, Daniela Reggie Dela Pisa contributed a mint in rhythmic gymnastics (hoop) while Chezka Centeno ruled the 10-ball pool single. Rowers Cris Nievarez (men’s lightweight single scull), Hermie Macaranas (men’s singles 200m) and the pair Melcah Jen Caballero and Joanie Delgaco (women’s lightweight double sculls) added golds as well as the sailing tandem of Lester Tayong and Emerson Villena (men’s international 470). The duo of Francis Alcantara and Jeson Patrombon ruled men’s tennis doubles, Noelle Manalac was victorious in women’s soft tennis singles, Junna Tsukii won the -50kg kumite in karatedo while the PHI women’s fencing team reigned supreme in epee.      .....»»

PBA: “Gilas 5” highlight 2019 Draft

Just like in 2016, the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft will be a two-part draft proceeding, with a special draft among Gilas prospects held before the regular draft exercise.  Seventy-one players, in all, hope that their names be called and their dreams come true in the keenly awaited draft exercise set at Robinson’s Place Manila, Sunday starting at 3 p.m. Ateneo players Isaac Go, Matt and Mike Nieto, San Sebastian’s Allyn Bulanadi and UE’s Rey Suerte are five players placed in a special pool for special dispersal to Columbian Dyip, Blackwater, NLEX, Alaska and Rain or Shine. These five players are being eyed by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas for inclusion in the Gilas program for the next FIBA World Cup the country is hosting in 2013. In 2016, the PBA also held a special draft involving then Gilas cadet players Mac Belo, Matthew Wright, RR Pogoy, Jio Jalalon, Kevin Ferrer, Mike Tolomia, Carl Bryan Cruz, Von Pessumal, Ed Daquioag, Russel Escoto, Arnold Van Opstal and Alfonzo Gotladera. In the regular draft then, Raphael Banal was the top choice by Blackwater. The Dyip, the Elite, the Road Warriors, the Aces and the Elasto Painters will get cracks at Go, the Nieto twins, Bulanadi and Suerte. But the teams will only hold rights on these players, and get to enlist them only once they are released by the SBP from Gilas service. With Go in the special draft and out of the regular pool, the guessing game is who will be bestowed the honors of being the top of the 2019 draft class. Columbian owns the rights for the first pick. The complete draft order in the first round is Columbian at No. 1 followed by Blackwater at No. 2, NLEX at No. 3, Alaska No. 4, Rain or Shine Nos. 5 to 7, NorthPort No. 8, Magnolia No. 9, Barangay Ginebra No. 10, TNT KaTropa No. 11 and Columbian No. 12. In the second round, it is Ginebra, Blackwater, NLEX, Alaska, Alaska, Meralco, Rain or Shine, NLEX, Magnolia, Ginebra, Rain or Shine and NorthPort. Two other Ateneo stalwarts in Adrian Wong and Vince Tolentino, Adamson’s Sean Manganti, Letran’s Jeric Balanza and Bonbon Batiller, twin brothers Jayvee and Jaycee Marcelino of Lyceum, William McAloney of EAC, Cris Dumapig of CEU, Gwen Combo of FEU, Kid Montalbo of La Salle, Michael Salado of Arellano, Christopher Bitoon of St. Clare and Rian Michael Ayon-ayon of PCU are among the notable hopefuls.  .....»»

SEA Games: Philippines advances to men’s volleyball semis

A very confident Philippine team showed up at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City on Wednesday as the home bets crushed Vietnam, 25-20, 25-21, 25-12, to book a semifinals ticket in the 30th Southeast Asian Games men's volleyball competition. Smelling blood after taking the first two sets with ease, the Filipinos made a coup de grace in the third as they opened a gaping 12-point advantage on their way to their second straight win in Pool B. The PHI has yet to drop a set in the competition after sweeping Cambodia in their opener on Monday. With the crowd electrified by the Nationals power plays and solid net defense, the Nationals denied the 2017 editions bronze medalist a chance for a podium finish while giving themselves an opportunity to end a 28-year medal drought. “Sobrang saya kasi alam ko ito ‘yung muling nakapasok ‘yung Pilipinas sa Final Four kasi (last medal) pa natin is 1991,” said PHI head coach Dante Alinsunurin. “Sobrang tuwa na na-achieve namin ngayon na makapasok sa Final Four.” Bryan Bagunas bannered the Nationals with 22 points off 17 kills, three aces and two kill blocks while Marck Espejo displayed crisp spiking with 11 kills off 22 attempts to finish with 13 markers.    Skipper John Vic De Guzman, Kim Malabunga and Francis Saura got seven points each while setter Joshua Retamar tallied 17 excellent sets and had four points including three of the Philippines' 11 kill blocks in the match that lasted for only an hour and 24 minutes. De Guzman's ace in the third gave the Philippines a comfortable, 21-9, lead before cruising to morale-boosting conquest.   The PHI joined reigning silver medalist and also unbeaten in two games Indonesia, which the Nationals will face on Friday to close the group stage, in the Final Four. Only Thanh Thuan Tu reached double-digit scoring for the Vietnamese with 15 points -all from attacks - while Quang Khanh Le got seven markers. Vietnam absorbed its second defeat in as many games. Meanwhile, Indonesia beat Cambodia, 25-20, 25-17, 35-33, in the other Pool B match while Myanmar debuted with a 26-25, 25-21, 25-18, victory over Singapore in Pool A to join defending champion Thailand on top of their group.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

The hosts earned nine gold medals on Wednesday.  Team Philippines closed the day with a total of 56 golds, 41 silvers and 22 bronzes. The PHI obstacle course bets were victorious at the Filinvest City, Alabang course with Kevin Jeffrey Pascua winning the men’s individual 100 m. x 10 obstacle while Rochelle Suarez ruled the women’s division of the event.

At the Aquatics Center in New Clark City, Tarlac, the Philippines finally ended a decade-long gold medal drought Filipino-American James Deiparine in the men’s 100m. breaststroke.

Man City finds stride in 4-1 victory vs Burnley; Palace wins

LONDON (AP) — After the lights went out in the changing room, Manchester City finally found a way to shine on the pitch again. City bounced back from its disappointing draw at Newcastle by beating Burnley 4-1 in the Premier League on Tuesday, displaying the kind of fluent attacking play that has often eluded Pep Guardiola’s team lately. Gabriel Jesus scored twice for City, which arrived at Turf Moor to find that the lights weren’t working in the away dressing room. The club tweeted out a picture of a black screen to make light of the situation, and the team then made light work of Burnley as well. Jesus curled in the opener in the 24th minute and doubled the lead just after halftime. Rodri added the third with a thundering volley into the roof of the net from 20 yards out in the 68th before substitute Riyad Mahrez netted his 50th Premier League goal in the 87th. Burnley's Robbie Brady grabbed a late consolation goal for the host. City had won just one of their last five games in all competitions but moved into second place above Leicester ahead of its game against Watford on Wednesday. It also cut Liverpool’s lead to eight points ahead of the Reds’ game against rival Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Wednesday. And Rodri insisted the defending champion hasn’t given up hope of catching Liverpool. "Until the maths say another thing we have all the chance of winning the Premier League,” Rodri said. "We don't see the best version of Manchester City until now." TEN-MAN PALACE WINS In Tuesday’s other game, substitute Jeffrey Schlupp scored in the 76th minute as 10-man Crystal Palace beat Bournemouth 1-0 to provisionally move up to fifth. Roy Hodgson's side played a man down for 71 minutes after Mamadou Sakho was sent off for a rash tackle, but Palace’s makeshift back four produced a solid display to see out a second straight win. Bournemouth, meanwhile, has now lost four games in a row. Sakho was making just his second league start of the season and recklessly caught Adam Smith high on the knee when sliding in for a tackle in the 19th minute, causing referee Anthony Taylor to show a straight red card. Palace then had another setback when Patrick Van Aanholt sustained a hamstring injury and had to be replaced by Schlupp. That meant Palace had center-back Martin Kelly playing on the right of the back four, midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate at the heart of defense and Schlupp — usually a winger — filling in at left-back. However, Bournemouth struggled to create chances and the hosts were still a threat on counterattacks, with Wilfried Zaha having a penalty appeal waved away in the 70th minute after colliding with Chris Mepham. Schlupp then scored the winner after he raced past Jefferson Lerma and Dominic Solanke before dribbling into the area and rifling an effort past Aaron Ramsdale from 12 yards out. Tuesday’s games were the first Premier League matches to be streamed live by Amazon in Britain, after the online giant bought the rights for two full rounds per season for the next three years......»»
