    HANOI – The Philippines won seven gold medals on Saturday, but dropped to fifth place in the medal tally of the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

    EJ Obiena led the country’s assault, etching a new SEA Games record of 5.46 meters to win the pole vault crown as expected. Also not surprising was the sweep of the triathlon events early in the morning, with Kim Mangrobang taking her third straight women’s title and Fer Casares taking the men’s crown.

    Samantha Catantan bagged the women’s individual foil in fencing, Meggie Ochoa and Annie Ramirez ruled the women’s -48 kilograms and -62 kilograms in jujitsu, and the Philippine women’s gymnastics team also contributed to the tally of the Philippines, bringing the total number of gold medals to 12 to go along with 18 silvers and 22 bronzes in the campaign supported by the Philippine Sports Commission.

    The Philippines, though, is closely behind second-placer Thailand, which has a 14-14-29 gold-silver-bronze tally. Indonesia is in third with 13-17-8, and Malaysia in fourth with 13-7-20.

    Agatha Wong led the silver winners after placing second in the women’s taijiquan.
