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.      .....»»

SEA Games: Pinoy spikers face Thais for championship berth

The Philippines is facing an uphill climb in its attempt to secure a gold medal round berth when it takes on defending champion Thailand in the semifinal of the 30th Southeast Asian Games men’s volleyball Sunday at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City. Game time is at 3:30 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, iWant and via livestream. The Nationals are seeded second in the in the crossover, knockout Final Four after closing the Pool B elimination round with a 2-1 win-loss record, losing only to 2017 silver medalist Indonesia. But the straight sets loss to the Indonesians could prove costly as the Filipinos set up an early collision course with the unbeaten five-peat-seeking Thais. PHI head coach Dante Alinsurin hopes that his wards led by the tandem of powerhitters Marck Espejo and Bryan Bagunas will learn from their mistakes in the previous outing to stand a chance against the mighty Thais.   “Siyempre ‘yung mga mali namin, yung mga miscommunication namin sa court, siguro magtututok kami dun,” said Alinsunurin, whose squad scored only one kill block and one ace against Indonesia. The Nationals averaged 14 blocks and seven aces in their wins against Cambodia and Vietnam. Thailand topped Pool A after beating Singapore and no. 2 semis seed Myanmar. Indonesia and Myanmar will square off at 6:00 p.m. while the classification match between Singapore and Vietnam is set at 1:00 p.m.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

SEA Games: “Play it right,” says coach Tim as Gilas battles Myanmar

MANILA — A high-powered Gilas Pilipinas will end the prelims of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Saturday against Myanmar and well... it could get a little out of hand. For Myanmar that is. In the last two times both countries met in basketball, the Philippines beat Myanmar by a combine 202 points. Gilas Pilipinas beat Myanmar by 107 points in the 2017 SEABA Championships and the Philippines beat Myanmar again in the 2017 SEA Games by 95 points. Not much is known about Myanmar for the 2019 SEA Games here but this 2019 Gilas team looks better than both of the 2017 squads that dominated the Burmese. “Myanmar is not a basketball nation. So their team is not that strong. We recognize that,” Gilas head coach Tim Cone said. “We just wanna make sure we go out there and play it right, you know, continue to create good habits because after that we play the semifinals,” he added. Cone’s Gilas team is rolling to start the SEA Games here. The Philippines started group play with a 52-point win against Singapore. Gilas followed that up with a 41-point victory against a good Vietnam team. But even as Gilas is dominating, Cone is stressing that the national team should continue to develop good habits. Teams like Thailand and Indonesia are still waiting. Even a rematch against Vietnam could be on the horizon and Vietnam did prove that they can play Gilas tough. “We still have Indonesia with Rajko Toroman. Thailand, they’ve been beating up their opponents. They’re very dangerous,” Cone said. “We don’t wanna lose our habits playing against Myanmar and create bad habits going in against Rajko Toroman because these teams are always super disciplined and they can beat you at their discipline,” he added. After beating Myanmar by an average of 101 points in their previous outing, many are seeing another 100-point win for Gilas Pilipinas. Coach Tim says they’re not gonna go for that. They’re simply going to go for a win, it only counts as one anyway regardless of the final margin. “So we’re also not gonna try to run up the score. We’re not gonna try to impress anybody,” he said. “Again, we wanna respect our opponents. We wanna go out there and play hard, but we also don’t want to embarrass anybody, so we’re gonna be cognizant of that,” Cone added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games 2019: Eumir Marcial s win was for teammate John Marvin, and for all Filipinos

Filipin-British boxer John Marvin found himself on the losing end of a Split Decision result against Vietnam's Hoang Truong Dinh in the second day of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Boxing competitions, Thursday at the PICC Forum Tent in Manila.  Marvin, the Philippines' light heavyweight, was dropped in the opening round by a well-timed counter overhand-right, and was playing catch up to the Vietnamese pug from that point. While Marvin did a lot better in the second and third rounds, it wasn't enought to sway the judges' decision as he bowed out of the tournament, unable to defend his gold medal from the 2017 SEA Games.  While it was definitely a heartbreaking loss for Marvin, he was still all smiles as he greeted fans on his way out of the competition area.  Someone who wasn't able to contain his emotions however, was Marvin's teammate and Pinoy middleweight bet Eumir Marcial.  Marcial could not hold his tears back as he came to console his fallen teammate after the loss.  The following day, it was Marcial's turn to take to the ring, and he didn't disappoint, making short work of Malaysian Azmi Mohd Aswan Che. Marcial needed just one round to defeat Che and move on to the finals of the Men's Middleweight division.  Following his spectacular win, the AIBA World Championships silver medalist explained just why he was extremely emotional following Marvin's loss.  "Sobrang close kami, lahat ng pag-hihirap namin, magkasama kami, yung training namin, talagang binigay namin yung blood, yung disiplina namin, yung hard work namin dito, para dito sa SEA Games," Marcial told the media.  "Nasaktan ako, nalungkot ako sa nangyari sa kanya, especially nung nalaman ko na kaya pala siya hindi maka-suntok kasi sobrang maga nung kamay niya. Nung first round pa lang, maga na yung kamay niya. Sabi ko kahit na na-knockdown siya, maka-bawi naman siya eh, kasi nung training andun yung, talagang gusto niyang makuha yung gold, kaya sabi ko bawi na lang sa second round pero nakita namin, lahat nating mga Pilipino na hindi siya maka-suntok ulit, so sa lahat, may injury siya, maga yung kamay niya," he continued.  With his fallen teammate in mind, Marcial came into his bout and delivered, dedicating the win to Marvin, the rest of his team, and the rest of the Filipino people.  "Sabi ko, itong game na 'to, kasi hindi siya nakakuha ng medal, so, hindi lang 'to para sa akin, hindi lang 'to para sa Pilipino, para sa amin din ito, kasi hard work namin, yung pagsasma namin, lahat. Kumbaga alam namin yung isa't-isa, kaya naging emotional ako nung natalo siya." With Marcial one more win away from a third-straight gold medal in the SEA Games, the Zamboanga-native calls for support from the Filipino people. "Hinihingi namin lahat, ng Philippine Boxing Team na suportahan niyo kami, manood kayo sa laban namin, i-cheer niyo kami, kasi we win as one naman eh. Yung panalo namin ay panalo din niyo.".....»»

SEA Games: PHI, Indonesia joust for semis position in men s volleyball

Already assured of a spot in the semis, the Philippines primes up for the next round when it clashes with Indonesia on Friday to end the 30th Southeast Asian Games men’s volleyball Pool B elimination round at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City. Both the host team and Indonesia are unbeaten after two outings making their 6:00 p.m. match a crucial clash for their seeding in the crossover Final Four against the squads advancing in Pool A. The match will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, iWant and via livestream. The Nationals made history on Wednesday after knocking out 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games bronze medalist Vietnam out of medal contention with a straight sets shocker. The win propels the Philippines closer to its goal of ending a 28-year medal drought. But the Nationals need not to relax as the match against the crisp-hitting Indonesians will determine their road to the podium.   “Una siyempre kailangan makuha namin [ang panalo] para makaiwas kami sa Thailand,” said PHI head coach Dante Alinsunurin, talking about avoiding an early clash with defending four-time champion Thailand in the semis. Just like the Philippines, the Indonesians swept their first two games against Vietnam and Cambodia. “Importante lang talaga ang gagawin namin sa paglaro sa Indonesia and dapat ready kami lagi. A-game talaga ang importante sa laro na yun. Di kami dapat mag-relax sa sitwasyon,” added Alinsunurin. Meanwhile, semis-bound Thailand and Myanmar faceoff at 1:00 p.m. as they joust for position in the Final Four. Vietnam and Cambodia meet at 3:30 p.m. to end their group stage campaign.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
