World Champion Nesthy Petecio turns to cooking during quarantine

With the Tokyo Olympics being pushed back to 2021 and all the Olympic Qualifiers being postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis that has gripped the world, women’s featherweight world champion Nesthy Petecio will have to wait a bit longer before she can finally compete to qualify for the Summer games. For now however, with pretty much the whole world under quarantine, Petecio is keeping her hands busy in the kitchen. The HRM student at the University of Baguio shared with Dennis Gasgonia of ABS-CBN News that she’s honing her culinary expertise while staying at home. "Nagluluto din ako," Petecio said. "Graduate ako ng 2-year associate course tapos tinuloy tuloy ko na sa University of Baguio." The 2019 SEA Games Gold Medalist revealed that her go-to dish is her mom’s specialties. "Ang specialty ko 'yung luto ng mama ko. Adobong manok, adobong baboy, favorite ko rin lutuin ang sinigang.” "Nag-aral talagang magluto kasi dati kain lang ang inaatupag ko,” Petecio jokingly added. Earlier this year, before the world came to a pause because of the COVID-19 virus, Petecio was one of the contingents in the Pinoy boxing team, looking to book a spot in the Tokyo games. Unfortunately, the 2019 World Championship gold medalist wasn’t able to earn her first summer games trip yet, unlike teammates Eumir Marcial and Irish Magno. Petecio will have another chance to during the global qualifiers, which was originally scheduled for May in Paris. With the current situation however, it’s uncertain when that will be taking place. For now, Petecio is looking at the brighter side of things and says she’s grateful to be safe. "Thankful ako na hindi man natuloy 'yung makapasok agad sa Olympics ang mahalaga ligtas po kami," said Petecio. "Kaming mga atleta, gustong gusto naming lumabas para magpapawis pero hindi po namin magawa dahil sa lockdown.” Petecio is hoping that people continue to heed the government’s orders to stay home to combat the spread of the deadly virus. “Sana isipin nila na kung mahawa sila, delikado rin ang pamilya nila. Makinig muna kahit saglit lang dahil lahat tayo apektado.".....»»

With the 2020 Chooks-to-Go MPBL Lakan Playoffs suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the league's day-to-day employees took a massive blow. The last time the league had a game day was back in March 11. That's why San Juan-Go for Gold team governor Chris Conwi made sure that the Chooks-to-Go-backed league's employees composed of the staff, referees, table officials, among others got some help financially. Conwi initiated a donation drive called "COVID-19 Bayanihan sa MPBL" in which he called on the team owners to give any amount to help the employees. "I made a note in our group chat with the team owners. Any amount will do to help our MPBL staff who are paid on a per-game basis," said Conwi. The response to Conwi's call was overwhelming as Atty. Brando Viernesto, Emmer Oreta, Sarangani head coach John Kallos, Nueva Ecija owner Bong Cuevas and team manager Jai Reyes, Rizal part-owner Jowell Conde, Makati owner Paolo Orbeta, Go for Gold godfather Jeremy Go, Bacoor team governor Dennis Abella, Simon Mangio of Pampanga, Laguna vice mayor Gel Alonte, Claudine Bautista of Davao Occidental, Zamboanga owner Anita Kaw, Sam Lato of Valenzuela, Jemina Sy's Muntinlupa, Onyx Crisologo of Quezon City, Ruby Navarro of Imus, Justin Tan of Mindoro, Mark Tan of Bicol, Iloilo part-owner JJ Javelosa, Joan Villafuerte of Parañaque, Jun Reyes of Bulacan, and MPBL commentators Cedelf Tupas, Christian Luanzon, and Martin Javier stepped up to the plate. As of Saturday, April 11, the drive has raised over PHP 330,000. Almost 80 employees of the league received the funds through their Money Padala accounts a day later. With this, Conwi reminded the staff and the fans of MPBL to keep safe during this pandemic. "Mag ingat po tayong lahat, sundun natin ang quarantine policies.

Ganun din po ‘yung iba ko pang teammates,” Magno told ABS-CBN News' Dennis Gasgonia. The Iloilo native will have to get clearance to go home and celebrate with her loved ones once her quarantine is up. "Wait ko pa po ang sasabihin ng mga coaches after po ng quarantine kung pwede po muna umuwi.

MPBL: Makati demolishes Caloocan in 42-point rout; Davao bounces back

Makati-Super Crunch ended its two-game skid in emphatic fashion, romping Caloocan-Victory Liner by 42 points, 119-77, in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go MPBL Lakan Season at the San Andres Sports Complex in Manila, Wednesday. Joshua Torralba powered the romp with 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting including six treys, helping Makati to a 21-6 win-loss record, still at third spot in the Northern division. Josrph Sedurifa chipped in 16 points, six rebounds, and six assists while Cedric Ablaza added 15 markers and nine boards. John Rey Villanueva and Rudy Lingganay also finished in double figures in points with 13 and 11, respectively. "We are still in the adjustment phase pero sobrang happy ako kasi inaccept ng players yung challenge. The win should be really credited to the players because they played very well," said coach Beaujing Acot, who earned his first win as Makati's head tactician. The Super Crunch-backed squad opened the game scorching, zooming to a 14-2 advantage, punctuated by back-to-back triples by Torralba, and never looked back. Joseph Manlangit's rim-rattling jam in the waning seconds of the game gave Makati its biggest lead of the game at 42, 119-77. Makati's bench did the heavy lifting with 64 points against Caloocan's 34. Paul Sanga paced Caloocan with 17 points and six rebounds while Damian Lasco had 14 markers. The loss allowed the Supremos to drop their fourth-straight game and slip to the ninth spot in the North behind a 14-13 card, half-a-game behind Pasay at 14-12 in the same division. In the earlier game, Nueva Ecija broke away late, thwarting Bulacan, 85-78. Leading by just a point, 72-71, Jai Reyes took over for the Rice Vanguards. He scored the next 10 points for his team - a floater, an and-one, and five freebies - to restore order with 2:09 left, 82-73. However, the Kuyas wouldn't go without a fight as Dennis Santos and Jovit Dela Cruz cut Nueva Ecija's lead to five, 82-77 with 37.89 ticks left. But they could not buy a basket in the waning seconds to give their foes the victory. "Our pick and roll today was good, marami kaming nakuha out of that. We just slowly chipped away even though Bulacan was in control most of the game," said Rice Vanguards assistant coach Carlo Tan. Reyes registered 20 points and 15 assists as the also-ran Nueva Ecija improved to 9-18 in the Northern division. Tonino Gonzaga also delivered 20 markers of his own with seven rebounds while Justin Arana beasted in the paint, tallying 19 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocked shots. The Rice Vanguards flexed their muscles on the defensive end, limiting Bulacan to a measly 25-of-78 clip, good for just 32.1 percent, while they buried 43.5 percent of their attempts. Dela Cruz led the Kuyas with 14 points and six rebounds while JR Taganas contributed 13 markers, eight boards, and four dimes. With the loss, Bulacan halted its six-game winning streak and fell to 18-9, tied with 1Bataan-Camaya Coast for the fourth and fifth spots in the North. In the first contest, Davao Occidental-Cocolife got back on the winning track after topping Parañaque-Yabo Sports, 78-70. The Tigers raised their win-loss card to 22-4, three days after absorbing a humiliating 84-65 defeat at the hands of San Juan -- their Datu Cup finals tormentor. "Parañaque played tough. This is another learning experience for us. It is good playing against those hungry and young teams," said Davao coach Don Dulay. Trailing, 63-76 with 3:40 remaining in the fourth quarter, Parañaque made one last run, launching seven unanswered points, capped by Keith Pido's jumper, 70-76, with 45 ticks left. But it was too little, too late as Bogs Raymundo answered with a deuce on the other end before the Patriots missed their shots to end the match. With Parañaque ahead 27-21 in the second period, the Tigers unleashed a 16-1 surge, capped by Mark Yee's layup to gain control, 37-28, with 3:28 left. Yee came through with a big double-double of 17 points and 17 rebounds alongside six assists, Emman Calo had 13 markers built on three treys. Chester Saldua added 11 points, five steals, and four boards. James Abugan's 14 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a block could not stop Parañaque from dropping its seventh-straight loss as they slipped to 8-20, 13th in the Northern division. The Scores: FIRST GAME Davao Occidental-Cocolife 78 - Yee 17, Calo 13, Balagtas 12, Saldua 11, Robles 10, Raymundo 10, Ludovice 3, Bonleon 2, Gaco 0, Mocon 0, Forrester 0, Adormeo 0.

POC awards P33 M worth of cash incentives to SEA Games gold medalists

For the first time, the Philippine Olympic Committee gave away cash incentives to gold medalists in the recently concluded 30th Southeast Asian Games. POC president Abraham ‘Bambol’ Tolentino on Tuesday led the distribution of incentives to the athletes who delivered the country’s 149 golds in the biennial meet during the POC general assembly held at Conrad Hotel. “Noong nakaraang taon, sa pamumuno ni dating POC President Ricky Vargas, tayo po ay nakapagbigay ng mahigit P14M bilang incentives para sa mga nagwagi sa Asian Games at Youth Olympic Games,” said Tolentino in his speech during the GA, which also served as a thanksgiving event. “Ngayon po naman, for the first time in Philippine SEA Games history, ating ginagantimpalaan ang ating mga magigiting na atleta sa pamamagitan ng mga cash incentives,” he added. More than P33 million plus were given away to athletes as part of the POC’s efforts to reward those who have given honor to the country, which won the overall championship for the first time since ruling the regional sports meet back in 2005 edition of the Games also held in the Philippines.          Individual athletes received P200,000 for each gold medal won while athletes in team sports collected P50,000 to P75,000 depending on the number of members in each squad.   “Siyempre iba ‘yung formula ng team, if you're gold medal, like basketball players, you have 14 players, di naman P200k bawat isa. Ganoon rin naman yung sa PSC. May formula yun, 25% of the basic. So kung 25% of 300k, that's how much, 75k?” Tolentino explained. The cash incentives came from donations coming from the private sector including the San Miguel Corporation, MVP Sports Foundation and the Philippine Basketball Association collected by the POC.  “At ito po ay nangyari sapagkat ang POC ngayon ay nakakakalap ng mga donasyon galing sa pribadong sector,” said Tolentino. “Atin pong pinasasalamatan ng taos-puso ang ating mga private sponsors na mula noong panahon ni Pres Vargas at magpa hanggang ngayon ay nagtitiwala sa liderato ng Philippine Olympic Committee.” The POC head also bared that they are working on giving away cash incentives for the silver and bronze medalists. Team Philippines hauled in 117 silver and 121 bronze medals. “At ngayon, nang ang inyong lingkod po ay manawagan para mabuo natin ang pondo para mabigyan ang lahat ng medalist sa SEA Games, tumugon po ang Udenna/Phoenix ni Mr. Dennis Uy at ang akin pong mga kasamahang congressman sa Mababang Kapulungan,” said Tolentino. Silver and bronze medalists are expected to collect their incentives on Dec. 19 or 20......»»

SEA Games: Ice cold drink helped calm Orcollo’s nerves in tense 10-ball final

MANILA — With an intense final against his Vietnamese opponent for the 10-ball singles gold medal, Dennis Orcollo was feeling the nerves. In a a freezing Manila Hotel Tent, Orcollo started to feel warm, the high stakes slowly overwhelming him. But as he tried to keep his focus, Orcollo found help in the two bottles he had in his table. One is a mineral water and one a SEA Games sponsored Pocari Sweat. Both drinks were ice cold. Orcollo started to put one bottle on his nape, keeping him cool and calm against the mounting pressure. “Sa experience ko, kapag kinakabahan ka umiinit kasi yung katawan,” Orcollo said. “Buti kamo, may Pocari at malamig pa. So tuwing umiinit yung katawan ko, yung batok ko ginaganun ko ng tubig na malamig para maging kalmado ako at magawa ko yung ginagawa ko,” he added, putting the bottle of Pocari Sweat on his neck even during the interview. Earlier in the day, Orcollo lost in the quarterfinals of 9-ball singles. As he recovered for the 10-ball final, it was a test for him on how he can quickly move on. Before he pocketed the final ball against Vietnam, Orcollo let out a final scream. The 9-8 win for the gold medal was complete. “Accept lang ng talo, move on. Look forward sa next game di ba?” Orcollo said. “Kinalimutan ko na yun, meron pa naman akong last match. So nag-practice ako,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
