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......»»

Vice Ganda throws green jokes, wacky answers in online Q& A

Vice Ganda sure knows how to bring the laughs in just about any medium. The comedian went unfiltered yesterday on Instagram Stories as he took questions from fans out of boredom.

Unfazed by the barb, Vice snapped a selfie and said, "Kahapon pa! Abangan mo bukas ulit (Since yesterday! Catch it again tomorrow)!"
