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 shooters ready to draw

PALEMBANG -- Will it finally be third time a charm for trap shooter Hagen Topacio when the 2018 Asian Games shooting championships fire off here Monday at the Jakabaring Sports City shooting range here? “The first time when I competed (in the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games) I was leading after four rounds then faded and in Incheon four years ago, I came down with dengue,” recalled Topacio of his forgettable outings in his previous appearances in the continental sports showcase. In his third outing, the shooter buckled down to serious training and trimmed down by at least 12 kilos to improve his balance and coordination. “I have been practicing three to four times a week and doing some serious weight training so I can shoot better,” Topacio, 28, bared. “Hopefully things will be a different this time.” Although wont to say it, the athlete is also seeking redemption after his bid to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games was crushed when the International Sports Shooting Federation decided to nullify the results of the 2015 Asian shooting championships held in Kuwait. Topacio shot a personal best score 122 in the meet to bag the silver medal and earn a ticket to the Rio Games, only to see his Olympic dream dashed when the ISSF voided the outcome after Kuwait barred the entry of an Israeli technical official from the competition in the violation of the world shooting body’s rules. He declined to discuss about his medal prospects, preferring to let his performance to do the talking here after the two-day event. Also seeing action on Monday are rifle shooters Jayson Valdez and Amparo Acuna, a 2017 Malaysia Southeast Asian Games bronze medalist, in the men’s and women’s air rifle events, respectively......»»
