    Philippine campaign shifts into high gear with two more golds from fencing, wushu

    Aug 22, 2017

    KUALA LUMPUR - Wushu and fencing delivered two more golds as the Philippine campaign in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games kicked into high gear on Tuesday

    Agatha Wong claimed the gold in the women's taijiquan of the 2017 SEA Games wushu competitions on Tuesday at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

    Wong won the mint after scoring 9.66 points in the event. 

    Wong, an Asian junior champion, beat Basma Lachkar of Brunei (9.54) and Ho Lin Ying of Singapore (9.44) for the gold, a day after she captured a silver medal in the women's taijijian.

    Meanwhile, Brennan Wayne Louie defeated Nathaniel Perez in an all-Filipino men's foil final at the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Center here.

    Louie became the fourth Filipino gold winner on Tuesday following gymnastics' Reyland Capellan and Kaitlin De Guzman and wushu's Agatha Wong.

    Louie, a 25-year-old Los Angeles-based fencer, beat Perez, 15-14, in the men's foil final after finishing second in the preliminaries that was topped by his compatriot.

    Louie later dedicated the win to his grandfather and his uncle, who died of leukemia three years ago.

    Fencing collected medals once again in the second day of competitions in the sport after Samantha Catantan and Maxine Esteban claimed silver and bronze in women's foil on Monday.
