16 Medals in Total for the Philippines less than the 21 Total won in 2014, but the most Golds they have won at an ASEAN School Games Athletics.
2014 and 2018 both had 35 athletes, and an even number of boys and girls so same size team.
It improved from the 4 Gold Haul in 2017 all from Boys. My prediction before These games for athletics was the spot in predicted 6-7 Golds from the Girls only. And they got 6 from the girls. My boy’s prediction was also fairly accurate 2 bronzes (2 medals total) they got a silver and a bronze.
Overall compare this to the SEA Youth which had the same group of athletes 2017 and 2018 as they had 1 gold out of 80 athletes and finished 6th overall.
In 2018 they had a smaller team and finished 7th overall behind SEA Games minnows Timor Leste who had 0 golds also but more silver medals than the Philippines. At the ASG the Philippines finished 4th overall in 2014 and 2018 with pretty much the same athletes.
2018 ASEAN School Games Athletics Quitoy sets ASEAN School Games Record in Javelin
Ann Katherine Quitoy continued the golden run for the Philippines on Day 2 of the ASEAN School Games in Malaysia. Quitoy not only took a glorious 2-meter win. She also helped herself to a new championship record hurling the 500-gram Javelin 49.18 meters. Absolutely demolishing the old record of 46.04m set by a Malaysian athlete just last year.
Her first throw of 46.74 was already over the old mark, and her second throw of 49.18 already sealed the gold medal. In fact, 4 of her 6 throws were over the old record. Supisara Klinla-or (Thailand) was a distant second with 47.89m and Yuni of Indonesia took bronze in 43.35m.
Quitoy who is part of a new breed of athletes being developed by Addy and Miguel Arca in Bacolod threw a distance of 45.72m which was a Palarong Pambansa record in April with 600 grams, and just 2 cm of the National Junior record of Fil-Heritage athlete Cerah Moren. She joins her training partner Trexie Dela Torre on the 3 gold medal tally by the Philippine Athletics Women at the ASG.

The event proved alot stronger this year than previous 2 editions with 8 competitors instead of just 4 like previous years. Palaro silver medallist Kassandra Alcantara was not included as she already graduated from grade 12. And the DEPED specified no Grade 12 graduates to be included in the lineup.
Winning time was really slow here. With Thu of Vietnam defending her title in 10m18.09 (10m02) 16 seconds slower than her PB. Myanamar took second in 10m47.25. Just holding off Tubiano of the Philppines well off her PB of 10.07. Even further behind there PB was Lheslie De Lima (10.06) the Palaro Champion who faded to 6th place in 11.27.28. The first event did one Bronze for the Philippines.
With 4 Golds Medals at the 2017 ASEAN School Games. The Philippines for sure will surpass its 1 Gold 2017 SEA Youth and 0 Gold at 2018 SEA Youth (behind Timor Leste in medal tally) at the 2018 ASEAN School Games (a 1.02% gold return and 0% gold return per athlete).
Aided by 4 Grass root coaches this time. This time the Philippines is sending 35 athletes, last year it sent 25 and got 4 golds or a 16% return. 16% of 35 is 5.6. So in order to exceed last years effort, they will need to come away with 6 Golds.
Schedule and Team Lists below. Philippine Athletes to watch out for.
First up for the Philippines is Leslie De Lima 10.06h and Camila Tubiano 10.07h in the Girls 3000m. De Lima from Bicol who is only 14 years old won the Palarong Pambansa. She holds the Age Grade record for 14-year-olds. The National Junior Record which belongs to Meagey Ninura at 10.03 is indeed within her reach. The #1 contender is Thu Hang Doan of Vietnam with a PB of 10.02 who won this event last year.
Predict – De Lima and Tubiano should be in the top 3 in this event with a slight chance of one of them if they work together upsetting the Vietnamese champion.
The 100m Girls is led by Duong Thi Hoa of Vietnam who just won the SEA Youth in 12.11 back in April. SEA Youth silver Erna Nuryanti of Indonesia 12.18 & 12.19. Jinthana of Thailand 12.19. Jessel Lumapas with 12.21 is ranked #4. While Cuyom who was only 4th at the Palaro not within medal reach. Palaro 100m Record Holder Samantha Limos was not in the delegation as she had skipped the 2018 Palaro to compete at a small meet in China instead.
Predict – Lumapas should scrape into Top 3. Cuyom not likely top 3 in this event.
2018 ASEAN School Games Athletics 400 Hurdles Girls
This should be an interesting one with Bui Thi Trang of Vietnam defending her title in the 400 Hurdles (1:01.53). Riza Jane Valiente the Palaro Record Holder (1:01.64) and Bernalyn Bejoy (1:02.04) will go round 3 against each other. After Valiente got the better of Bejoy at the Palaro and Philippine National Games. Both of them look to challenge the Vietnamese runner for the Gold.
Predict – Valiente and Bejoy certainly in the Top 3. Slight chance one of them can beat the Vietnamese runner.
2018 ASEAN School Games Athletics High Jump Final
Probably the most interesting event of Day 1. 5 Girls all over 1.70m going head to head. The defending champion from Vietnam with 1.76m this season. Followed by Thailand who got 6th at Asian Juniors with 1.74m and 1.72m. Alexie Caimoso of the Philippines with 1.72m the Palaro Record Holder, Evangeline Caminong the National Junior Record Holder of the Philippines 1.71m, and another Malaysian 1.71m.
Predict – Vietnam for the win. The other 2 girls have a chance of a minor medal.
