    TOKYO Olympian Luke Gebbie will not see action in the 31st Southeast Asian Games after testing positive for COVID-19.

    Gebbie bagged a silver medal in the men’s 4x100-meter freestyle relay and bronze in the 50-meter freestyle in the 2019 SEA Games at Clark.

    He also holds the Philippine record in the 50-meter freestyle with 22.57 seconds and in the 50-meter butterfly with 24.34 seconds.

    Three kickboxers also tested positive on the initial test but was cleared last week after a retest.
