ASIAN GAMES: 2 poomsae bronze medals on Day 1 for Philippines

JAKARTA—The Philippine men’s and women’s taekwondo poomsae teams settled for bronze medals after yielding to traditional powerhouses during their semifinal matches at the start of the taekwondo competitions in the 18th Asian Games at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) Assembly Hall here on Sunday. An opening for the gold medal match presented itself for the men’s troika of Dustin Jacob Mella, Jeordan Dominguez and Rodolfo Reyes Jr. after they defeated Iran in the quarterfinals, 8.339 vs 8.100. But the trio rammed into the Great Wall, losing in the semifinals to China’s Zhu Yuxiang, Hu Mingda and Deng Tingfeng, 7.830 - 8.180, to settle for the first bronze medal of the Philippine delegation. The same fate befell the triumvirate of Juvenile Faye Crisostomo, Rinna Babanto and Janna Dominique Oliva, who failed to make it to the championship round after bowing to Unifed Korea’s Gwak Yeowon, Choi Dongah, Park Jaeun, 7.110-8.020, also in the semifinals. “Hard luck. We lost in the semifinals, but we are very proud of the teams,” said Philippine Taekwondo Association national head coach Igor Mella. The men’s team began their ascent to the semifinals after defeating Saudi Arabia in the Round of 16, 8.180-7.640 before securing the quarterfinal win over the Iranians. The women’s team won over host Indonesia in the quarterfinals, 8.070-8.040, after edging Hong Kong, China in the round of 16, 8.000-7.490. Other Philippine bets in the individual poomsae were not as lucky as Reyes and Jocelyn Ninobla both failed to advance. Reyes was eliminated by Thailand's Pongporn Suvittayarak, 8.08-8.32, in the quarterfinals after he advanced to the last eight by eliminating Ruslan Manaspayev 8.08-7.08 in the round of 16. Ninobla fell by the wayside in the round of 16 to Vietnam's Tuyet Van Chau, 7.89-8.11. The men’s team’s semifinal tormentor China went on to settle for the silver after bowing to Unified Korea’s Han Yeonghun, Kim Seonho and Kang Wanjin, even as the Koreans’ female side was upset by Thailand’s Chomchuen Kotchawan, Phaisankiattikun Phenkanya and Sirisahakit Omawee, 8.200 to 8.210. The women’s volleyball team, meanwhile, got waylaid by powerhouse Thailand, 22-25, 12-25, 15-24, at the Gelura Bung Karno Volleyball Hall—a score line that did not actually reflect the Thais’ superiority in the event. Hagen Topacio, on the other hand, overcame a shaky start but came storming back to score 71 points and wind up in a tie for third with six others after the first three rounds of shooting’s trap event at the Jakabaring Sports City range here on a bright and sunny Sunday.   Also in Palembang, the country’s top junior player Jeson Patrombon was in vintage form on Sunday, starring in the country’s twin victories at the Jakabaring Sports City courts.Patrombon opened the country’s campaign in the men’s singles with a 6-1, 6-0 rout of Timor Leste’s Nazario Fernandez Gusmao then teamed up with Francis Casey Alcantara in the afternoon in dispatching Qatar’s Jabar Al Mutawa and Mubarak Zayid, 6-4, 6-2, in doubles play. But the first-time partnership of Alberto Lim Jr. and Marian Jade Capadocia suffered a stinging 4-6, 4-6 loss to the seventh-seeded Indian tandem of Khamran Kaur Thandi and Divij Sharan in the mixed doubles. Two Filipino riders will vie in the downhill event of cycling’s mountain bike event on Monday but they may end up using only one bike. The Trek MTB bike of John Derick Farr--and also that of women’s cross country top bet Ariana Thea Patrice Dormitorio—remained in transit because of the mess at the NAIA caused by a Xiamen Airways Boeing plane that belly-landed last Friday. “If worse comes to worst, Derick could be borrowing Lea’s [women’s entry Lea Denise Belgira] bicycle for the downhill race tomorrow [Monday],” Oscar “Boying” Rodriguez, the PhilCycling’s MTM commission chairman, said. The Travel Department of the Philippine Sports Commission burned the wires since Saturday afternoon to determine the whereabouts of the bicycles......»»

Delos Santos to focus on national team s floor defense, speed in Japan training camp

Emulating the Japanese's floor defense will be the main objective of the Philippine national women's volleyball team when the Filipina bets leave for a two-week training in the land of the rising sun. The nationals will fly to Japan on Sunday to undergo rigid training sessions and tune-up games in Okayama. The Filipinas also trained in the same city last year as part of their preparation for the AVC Asian Seniors Women's Volleyball Championship and in the Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games. Known for their player's agility and quick reflex when in comes to floor defense, head coach Shaq delos Santos wants his team to develop the same mentality as the Japanese. “Definitely kung ma-adapt namin why not?,” said Delos Santos. “Kasi syempre doon sila kilala sa defense.” “Syempre kaya rin kami nagpunta doon not only defense kasi sila meron silang players na maliliit, may players na malalaki pero skills-wise grabe nila ma-maximize,” added Delos Santos. The mentor also wants to develop the team’s speed, agility and communication especially with the limited time on their hand to prepare for the Asiad. “Kung hindi namin makuha lahat, kailangan may ma-absorb kami and kailangan ‘yung speed ng laro nila, the way they play inside the court kasi syempre pag naglalaro iba ang galaw ng Japanese dito sa Pilipinas kaya yun ang isa sa kailangan ng team more on international (exposure),” he said. The team will leave at 7:00 a.m. and will travel for a few more hours by land in their training camp. Led by team captain Aby Marano, the national team including the members of the national pool will return on August 16 before heading to Indonesia for the 2018 Jakarya Palembang Asian Games that will run from August 18 to September 2. "We expect to hone their skills specially in floor defense," said Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. vice president Peter Cayco. The PHI squad is bracketed in Group A in the quadrennial continental sports meet together with host Indonesia, Japan, Thailand and Hong Kong. Included in the Japan trip are Jaja Santiago, Mika Reyes, Alyssa Valdez, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Kim Fajardo, Kim Dy, Cha Cruz-Behag, Majoy Baron, Denden Lazaro, Mylene Paat, CJ Rosario, Maika Ortiz, Myla Pablo, Rebecca Rivera, MJ Phillips and setter Jia Morado.  Libero Dawn Macandili, last year’s AVC Asian Senior Women’s Championship second best libero winner, will skip the training camp because of her academic commitments.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: Standhardinger in better mood as he joins Beermen from Hong Kong

Christian Standhardinger is almost here. The Fil-German forward, the no. 1 pick of the 2017 PBA Draft, is coming home to join the mighty San Miguel Beermen. Standhardinger had a flight today and is set to join the flagship SMC franchise for practice starting this weekend. Posting on his Instagram stories, Standhardinger thanked the Hong Kong Eastern basketball club for the seven months he spent with the team. "It was a pleasure playing for the Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions, we had a great journey and it was a lot of fun," Standhardinger said. Unfortunately, while the former Long Lions headed into the current ABL season as defending champions, they got swept in the semifinals by, ironically, the San Miguel-Alab Pilipinas. More comfortable now than a couple of days ago when his ABL team was fresh from elimination, Standhardinger was jolly as he made his way to the airport to travel from Hong Kong to Manila. Standhardinger was worried about his baggage, saying he only had "300 bucks with me" and was hopeful that he won't be charged for his extra backpack. He also complained about Instagram stories' 30-second rule, saying it was "stupid" and "pointless." Yep, Christian's mood is definitely better now... expect he's just a litle upset on IG. The Beermen have no schedule yet for their title defense but the 2018 Commissioner's Cup will open Sunday, April 22, at the Big Dome.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Balkman, Brownlee deliver as Alab draws first blood vs Saigon

Renaldo Balkman and Justin Brownlee both did what was expected of them in the curtain-raiser for the playoffs of the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League. The rest of Alab Pilipinas only followed suit as they took care of business against visiting Saigon, 110-100, on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. With their team opening the best-of-three quarterfinals series at home, the Puerto Rican and the American didn’t let the jam-packed crowd down and stood at the forefront of the attack for the Filipinos. Trailing by one at the midway mark of the opening period, Brownlee took on the scoring load and fired eight points in the 17-5 run that took away a 28-17 lead for his team. Balkman also did his part and already had an 11-point, 16-rebound double-double after the first two quarters. In the second half, Ray Parks Jr. and Dondon Hontiveros then joined in on the fun as the Alab lead ballooned to as much as 22, 97-75, early in the final frame. Akeem Scott still pulled Saigon to within 10, 96-106, inside the last two minutes only to see makes from Parks Jr. and Brownlee put them away for good. Parks Jr. topped the scoring column for the Filipinos with 24 points while Brownlee stuffed the stat sheet with 22 markers, 11 rebounds, and eight assists. Balkman was a force down low with 17 points, 20 rebounds, and six assists and was backstopped by Lo Domingo who had 18 markers and six boards to his name. Alab will travel to Vietnam next Saturday for a chance to sweep the series and move on to a matchup with second-seeded and defending champion Hong Kong. As always, that game will be on S+A, S+A HD, and sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/abl. Maxie Esho paced the Heat with a career-high 42 points while Scott and Filipino-American Mikey Williams chipped in 19 points apiece. However, they were unable to overcome the loss of head coach Kyle Julius who was ejected after incurring technical fouls, both for continuous complaining, in the first and second quarters. BOX SCORES SAN MIGUEL ALAB PILIPINAS 110 – Parks Jr. 24, Brownlee 22, Domingo 18, Balkman 17, Hontiveros 8, Raymundo 7, Sumalinog 6, Javelona 5, Celiz 3 SAIGON HEAT 100 – Esho 42, Scott 19, Williams 19, Morgan 16, Nguyen 3, Arnold 1 QUARTER SCORES: 30-24, 57-47, 90-72, 110-100 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
