Ashgabat 2017

#TeamPhilippines brought home 2 gold, 14 silver, and 14 bronze medals. And placed 19th out of 62 countries (only 33 countries won medals). In the recently concluded 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) in Ashgabat 2017, Turkmenistan.

While the 105-athlete delegation improved its 1 gold and 2 bronze medals in the 2013 edition in Incheon, South Korea where only 40 Filipino athletes participated.

The 2 Golds both came from Ju Jitsu. Care of Meggie Ochoa and Annie Ramirez.

Host Turkmenistan which by virtue could field the most entries due to fewer expenses was the overall champion with 89 golds. While they had more than double the amounts of Gold of Powerhouse China who rested its best athletes for bigger meets with 42 golds. Iran was third overall with 36 golds.

Philippines Performance Improves

While PH’s performance improved Most noteworthy is that Thailand won 21 gold, 20 silver, and 29 bronze medals and finished 6th overall with 246 athletes. Meanwhile, a 105-strong delegation from Vietnam won 13 gold, 8 silver, and 19 bronze medals good for 9th place.

The performance of Team PH clearly shows we are way behind our Asian and even SEA neighbors. Especially relevant is considering that the AIMAG is not as tough as the Asian Games where not all countries sent their best teams.

Furthermore, take note there is less than a year to go before the 2018 Asian Games (Oceania countries will also participate in some events). Believed to be limited to 300 from Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Island Nations. In the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon Korea, The Philippines won 1 Gold, 3 Silvers and 11 Bronzes and ranked 22nd overall.

2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games : ATHLETICS UPDATES: RESULTS TEAM PHILIPPINES

18.09.17

2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 37

2016 Asian Indoor Bronze Medallist Eric Cray bulldozed Heat 3 with a time of 6.85. Albeit far from his 6.57 National Indoor Record. Cray bypassed the 60 Hurdles to focus on the 60m plain. He undoubtedly is conserving energy for the next 2 rounds. Heat 1 was won by Taftian of Iran the Asian Indoor Champion in a slow 6.99, while the fastest time came in Heat 2 with Akbar Mohammed of Saudi Arabia who hit 6.74 the fastest time, ahead of Chuangchai of Thailand 6.89. Crays time is the second-fastest time in the heats after 3 of 6 heats were completed.


2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 38Meanwhile SEA Games Silver Medallist Mervin Guarte did not qualify for the Final of the 1500m

He also finished behind another SEA Athlete SEA Bronze Medallist Yothin Yoprajan. However, the only consolation for Guarte was his time of 4.04.76 established a new Philippine Indoor Record as there are currently no Records in this event.

2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 39

SEA Bronze Medalist Marestella Torres finished out of the medals in 5th place at the Asian Indoor meet. Her leap of 5.97m was only 7 cm off getting the bronze. Olga Ryapkova won the Gold in 6.43m, Asian and SEA Games Champion Bui of Vietnam took Silver with 6.36m. There were no other participants from South East Asia.  The Philippine Indoor record is still held by Elma Muros 6.11m set in 1995.

SEA Games Silver Medalist Marco Vilog failed to advance to the 800 Semi-Finals with a time of 1.56.62. Vilog was well off the National Indoor Record of his coach John Lozada 1.54.10. Former SEA Games silver medalist Mervin Guarte who was lined up in this event did not participate.

Contrary to what was reported in the Philippines mainstream newspapers Trenten Beram did not participate in these games. The SEA Games 200 and 400 Champion, did not run the 400 here and there was no 200 held.

Also, Eric Cray did not join the 60m Hurdles. Instead of lining up tomorrow in Heat 3 of 6 Heats of the 60m Dash. Cray has the quickest PB in his heat, so he should have no problems winning the event. His PB is actually 6.57 which he has done on 2 occasions, not 6.60 which the official games website mentions.

The Philippines Goal is to beat the Goal of 1 Gold and 2 Bronzes.
