MANILA, Philippines — Andrea Robles saved the day for Team Philippines as she snared a gold medal in the Women’s Individual Compound event at the 2020 Indoor Archery World Series on Sunday, 10 November 2019, at the Venetian Resort Hotel in Macau, China.
The 21-year old Robles outshone the best that there was in American World Championship Runner-up Paige Pearce-Gore on scores of 141-135 in the final round to capture the gold medal.
And before barging into the nerve-wracking finals, Robles gathered enough nerves of steel to put away the opposition in top-seeded Sarah Prieels of Belgium but by the skin of her teeth, 146-145.
But a win is a win and that definitely made Robles a marked archer in the upcoming 30th SEA Games where she will lead the National compound team’s cause.
