MANILA, Philippines –The two-man beach volleyball Philippine national teams and women’s roster start their quest for gold as the beach volleyball competitions unfold this morning (Friday) in the 30th Southeast Asian Games at the Subic Tennis Center.
As of press time, however, the women’s pair of Sisi Rondina and Bernadeth Pons as well as Dzi Gervacio and Floremel Rodriguez were still awaiting the outcome of the draw that will be attended by coaches and team managers. Defining the men’s team schedule is also included.
The men’s team consisted of Edmar Bonono and Jude Garcia as well as Anthony Arbasto and James Buytrago who hope to record a historic win in the biennial multi-sports tournament.
“Every country has 2 Teams translated,” Dzi Gervacio said in his Twitter message. “In the Men’s division, because of the 8 teams they have the semis and finals. In the Women’s Division, there are no semis/finals. Every game is DO OR DIE,” Gervacio said.
The Philippines last won the women’s beach volley medal at the 2005 Manila SEA Games where the pair of Heidi Ilustre and Diane Pascua won bronze.
Malditas, meanwhile, will continue its unbeaten record in teasing its hopes of heading into the quarterfinals in a bid to defeat Malaysia at the Biñan Football Stadium.
Azkals U23, led by Stephen Schrock, is forced to win its match against the 2017 runner-up in men’s football Malaysia to advance and secure a seat in four teams heading into the cross-over semifinals.
Azkals U23 failed in its last match against Myanmar after failing to hold back in the final 11 minutes of the fight.
The national team at Floorball will also continue its campaign on the fifth day of the battle against Malaysia in the men’s and women’s category in the U.P. College of Human Kinetics Gym.
The talented young members of the Philippine Skating Union are also pushing for their participation in the first game or qualifying event of the Ice Skating sports at SM Megamall.
Members of the national skate team first meet in the Senior Ladies – Short Program before participating in the Senior Men – Short Program. (Lito Oredo/Chris Figueroa/IAMIGO/CNS)
