YOUTH OLYMPICS: Saso struggles in round two but remains in medal contention

BUENOS AIRES — Yuka Saso hobbled with a four-over-par 74 on Wednesday but still remained in the hunt for a podium finish in women’s golf while swimmer Nicole Oliva reached the finals in the 200m freestyle at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games here. The 17-year-old Filipino- Japanese compiled 145 over two days, five strokes off leaders Alessia Nobilio of Italy and Kim Grace of Australia after she bogeyed four straight holes to take the turn at three-over. Saso also had a pair of bogeys on No. 11 and No. 15 and birdied No. 12. "She didn’t play her best today,’" said Saso’s coach Rick Gibson. "It’s really tricky out there today.’" Grace was steady with a 69 while Nobilio scored 72 for an identical 140 with Emma Spitz of Australia two shots behind (70) followed by Hoyu An of Chinese Taipei (72). "I’m hoping for a windy day tomorrow. We handled it well yesterday and hopefully a different wind tomorrow will give us a different look at the golf course, fresh perspective," said Gibson. Carl Jano Corpus also struggled the entire day, limping home with a 76 to fall 10 strokes behind the lead. The 17-year-old bogeyed twice on the front nine and registered three more bogeys on hole nos. 13, 14, 15 after a double bogey on the 10th. Karl Vilips of Australia grabbed the lead (69-68-137) while the only highlight for Corpus was a single birdie on the par-5 No. 11. "Carl had the same problem today. They putted really well yesterday but didn’t putt as well today," said Gibson. Oliva made it to the 200m freestyle finals at the Olympic Park swimming pool but finished seventh in the medal race after clocking 2:02.1. "To make it in the YOG finals is one huge accomplishment for any junior swimmer. Amazing," said Philippine Swimming Inc. president Lani Velasco. "She made top eight in the 200m free event with five heats competing against 36 countries." Ajna Kesely of Hungary captured the gold medal (1:57.8) and China’s Junxuan Yang (1:58) settled for the silver......»»

Hidilyn Diaz capped off a spectacular 2017 with another award in her ever-growing trophy case as she was named one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) Awardees for the year. The Zamboanga native was recognized for her outstanding effort in the field of sports, which includes her numerous awards in weighlifting.  Diaz, the first Filipino olympic medalist since "Onyok" Velasco in 1996, won bronze and silver in the 2017 International Weightlifting Federation World Championships in Anaheim, California last December. Diaz posted her appreciation of winning the prestigious award on Instagram, recognizing her opportunity to become a role model for not just women, but for all Filipinos.      To be one of the TOYM Awardee it means something to me! It's hard to explain, but it's something that I'm proud of. To be an inspiration to youth, women, athlete and Filipino are the difference I want to make. I want them to know success is not an easy thing. You need to have a brave, courageous and strong mind. You need to work hard on the things you want to achieve. And lastly, you need to have strong faith in our God. #TOYMAwardee #hidilyndiaz #olympism #olympics #weightlifting #weightliftingawareness #philippineAthlete #proudtobePinoy A post shared by Hidilyn Diaz OLY (@hidilyndiaz) on Jan 10, 2018 at 4:49pm PST Diaz notes that she had to go through a lot of adversity to get where she is today, which her determination was strengthened by her faith.
