Philippines Swimming Delparine ends the drought for 

James Delparine ended what may be considered the longest gold medal drought in the history of Philippine Swimming.  After 10 long years, Philippine swimming finally got its gold medal care of the Filipino-American swimmer.

The 26-year-old Delparine, in the process of taking gold, shattered the SEA Games record of Nguyen Vuu Het set in 2009 with a 1.01.46 clocking breaking the 1.01.60 games record. Delparine was silver 2 years ago in Kuala Lumpur. He also reset the Philippine record of 1:02:00.

Delparine was ranked a very closed 3rd in the SEA Rankings in the 100 Breast. However, he is ranked #1 in the SEA Rankings for 2019 in the 50 Breast, his stronger event.

Rewind 10 years, Philippine swimming had 4 golds at the 2009 SEA Games in Laos. 2 from Miguel Molina, 1 from Ryan Arabejo, and 1 from Daniel Coakley.

Tankers Remedy Rule and Jasmine Alkhaldi also rewrote their own national records in women’s 200m butterfly (2:10.99) and women’s 100m freestyle (55.76), respectively, while securing podium finishes. Therefore Rule, one of the gold favorites, took a very close Silver to defend SEA Games Champion Jin Wen Quah (2:10.97), while 26-year-old Alkhaldi was very pleased to secure the bronze in what may be her very last SEA Games.

11 Filipino Tankers qualified for finals.

“I feel we will win not just one (gold),”

said Velasco, noting that five Fil-foreign talents will beef up the squad that will take part in the Nov. 30-Dec. 11 SEAG.

 

Apart from these recruits, PSI will still parade the multi-awarded Jasmine Alkhaldi and James Deiparine, who took two silvers in 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, and Roxanne Yu, who bagged bronze also two years ago.

 

“The swimmers are training and the preparations for the SEAG is running smoothly,”

said Velasco.

 

A meeting with Philippine Sports Commission chairman William Ramirez is tops on Velasco’s priority to map out her athletes’ buildup for the SEAG.

Philippines Swimming Vargas calls on ex-tankers to support swim tryouts.

INVOKING the spirit of patriotism and unity, Philippine Olympic Committee president Ricky Vargas will try to convince former national swimmers turned coaches Ral Rosario, Pinky Brosas, Akiko Thomson Guevarra, and Eric Buhain to support the national team swimming tryouts for the 30th Southeast Asian Games in November under the supervision of the Philippine Swimming Inc. led by Lani Velasco.

Swimming’s OIC Lailani Velasco

“We should try to set all our personal differences aside and work towards unity and what is best for our athletes and our country,”

Vargas said after he was informed about reports that Rosario and company intend to boycott the tryouts.

Vargas said he would try to meet with the group, which continues to question Velasco’s leadership despite securing recognition from both the International Swimming Federation and the local Olympic body within the week to persuade them to support the national team trials.

Philippines Swimming Meeting with Velasco

Through POC membership committee chairman Robert Bachmann, Vargas met with Velasco recently. With the PSI president assuring both POC officials, the national squad tryouts would be “all-inclusive” and based on FINA rules and guidelines.

Ricky Vargas

“Obviously, we should have the best athletes available to us for the SEA Games. That’s why we have always stressed inclusivity in these matters,”

Vargas said.

 

“There is no need for acrimony and divisiveness. We can work this out.

“Lani has announced she is willing to do this. I call on the other groups to cooperate and work as one for the country’s interest.”

The Philippine SEA Games have also added significance after Velasco managed to secure sanction from the world swimming body last Feb. 1, making the regional swimming showcase an Olympic qualifying event for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics historic first.

“We have the pleasure to inform you that FINA has approved the following competitions as meets where swimmers can achieve FINA “A” and FINA “B” swimming qualifying standard times (for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games).,”

FINA executive director Cornel Marculescu wrote Velasco.

 

Underscored in the correspondence was the SEA Games swim fest scheduled for Dec. 2 to 6 at the New Clark City Swimming Stadium in Capas, Tarlac.

Above all making the PH Games an Olympic qualifier virtually guarantees all of the region’s swimming elite. Among them, Singaporean Olympic sensation Joseph Schooling and Vietnamese phenom Nguyen Thi Anh Vien will see action.

“We would like to thank FINA for approving the 30th SEA Games as an Olympic qualifying meet. This is truly a first in the history of Philippine swimming,”

Velasco said.

Asian Games: Teenager Ikee excited about closing in on fly champ Sjostrom

Japan’s teenage sensation and Tokyo Olympics hopeful Rikako Ikee said she feels to be closing on Rio champion and world record holder Sarah Sjostrom after dominating the Asian Games women’s 100-meter butterfly on Tuesday.

“I am excited about how close I can get to (Sjostrom). I don’t want to lose. I want to make a habit of winning,” 18-year-old Ikee told reporters as she marked a games record 56.30 seconds in the 100 butterfly, her strong event, at the GBK Aquatic Center in Jakarta.

Ikee has gained momentum since placing sixth in her 2016 Olympics debut, where Sjostrom claimed victory in 55.48, rewriting the world record she set the previous year. Ikee holds Japan’s national records in the 50, 100, 200 freestyle and the 50 and 100 butterflies.

“I was aiming for the 56.50-second range but it turned out I swam faster. I feel my level is getting higher,” Ikee said. “Strategy-wise, it was perfect.”

Although expressing worries about how tired she felt after the heat earlier in the day, she did not show it in the race, finishing 1.10 ahead of China’s Zhang Yufai, who settled for silver.

China’s Sun completes ‘golden slam.’

Seto retains the title, Kumar upset.

JAKARTA, Aug 19, (AFP): Chinese giant Sun Yang swept to Asian Games 200m freestyle gold Sunday to add to his Olympic and world titles – then had his national anthem played twice after a flag-pole malfunction.

The triple Olympic champion produced a blistering last two laps to clock one minute, 45.43 seconds, and successfully launch his quest to win five gold medals in Jakarta.

The victory was twice as sweet for Sun, stunned by Japan’s Kosuke Hagino at the last Asian Games in 2014 and took silver behind Korean rival Park Tae-hwan in 2010.

From the moment Sun strode out sporting a bright yellow tracksuit and huge red headphones to roars from flag-waving Chinese fans, there was only ever likely to be one winner.

The 26-year-old favorite absolutely smashed the final, finishing more than a second clear of Japan’s Katsuhiro Matsumoto, celebrating by screaming out loud and punching the air as he soaked up the applause of his adoring fans.

“I’ve waited eight years for this title,” said an emotional Sun, easily China’s biggest sporting personality.

Philippine Swimming – Jasmine Alkhaldi Makes Finals in 100 Free at Asian Games

Philippines Swimming 2014-2021 Comprehensive #1 Guide 4

A small but competitive team from Philippine Swimming. As 25-year-old Jasmine Alkhaldi made her way to the 100 Freestyle final, clocking a season-best of 56.38 to lead the SEA Rankings.

Alkhaldi qualified 6th to the finals. Alkhaldi made the most of the absence of Quah Ting Wen of Singapore, and Nguyen Vien of Vietnam, who beat her at the last SEA Games in 2017, where she picked up the bronze.

Consequently, Jasmine was the fastest qualifier from South East Asia to the final. Jasmine set the National Record of 55.90 during the SEA Games bronze effort. She will have a shot at breaking that tonight.

Despite having only 2 Swimmers entered at the Asian Games. Philippine Swimming made a big splash in the pool as 21-year-old Roxane Ashley Yu barged her way into the 200 Backstroke Final at the Asian Games. You will swim in the finals in the evening. Yu surpassed her SEA Games Bronze time and standard for the 2019 SEA Games.

Yu clocked 2:19:12 to finish second in heat 2 behind Liu Yaxin of China, who has the fastest time. She did take the scalp of Yessie Yosaputra of Indonesia, the SEA Games Silver medalist. Yu was the bronze medalist in Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games, improving her time off (2:19.98).  Yu, in the 2015 SEA Games, clocked a PB of 2:18.45 as an 18-year-old.

Vien of Vietnam, the SEA Games Champion who was the Bronze medalist in 2014, did not join the 200 Backstroke as she is focussing on Individual Medley events.  However, Fitriyati of Indonesia, who didn’t medal in this event in the SEA Games, has qualified ahead.

The defending champion from 4 years ago, Sayaka Akase of Japan, also qualified for the final. The Philippines had no entry in this event 4 years ago.

Yu has schooled overseas. She went to high school in Phuket, Thailand, at the British School and now attends school. She now attends college at the University of Miami, Florida.

On a side note. Shame that POC couldn’t sort out Chloe Isleta’s entry in time. She just swam a 2:17.71 at Neo Garden in Singapore on 21 June.

So would have been more than capable of making that final. At the same time, it’s probably crazy to think Chloe could have landed top 3. She probably would have gone around 6th or 7th overall.

Nicole is the most productive athlete on the Philippine Team as of now. Topping. Two events, the 200M Free Style Rankings with a Silver SEA Games medal standard and the 800M Freestyle with a bronze medal standard. 

Oliva #2 in the 400M Freestyle with a bronze medal standard and #3 in the 1500 Freestyle. She also ranks in the Top 10 in the SEA for the year in the 200 Backstroke, 200 Butterfly, 200 Individual Medley, and 400 Individual Medley.

Philippines Swimming 2014-2021 Comprehensive #1 Guide 6

After achieving 4 QTAs, she will represent the Philippines at the Olympic Youth Festival Final in Rio as she has qualified for the meet.

Nicole Oliva makes a big splash at world level 7th at World Olympic Youth.

Nicola Oliva barged into the 400m Free Style Final with a time of 4:16.72.

Furthermore, Oliva had finished 7th in the 200m Freestyle earlier t the Youth Olympic Games Finals in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Consequently, she Qualified 4th going into the final.

In contrast, the only Asian athlete to qualify.

The mark was just outside Oliva 4:16.32 PB set at the 2018 Pan Pacific Champs earlier this year in Tokyo.

Oliva’s mark of 4:16.32 is the Philippines National Record in this event. (Wikipedia incorrectly reports 4:16.61, which is a weaker performance than what she has actually done). This was a good outcome for Philippines Swimming.

Nicole Oliva

In the Final, Oliva had a slightly better mark of 4:16.61, which placed her 6th place higher than her ranking in the 200m Freestyle the other day.

 Oliva marks in the 200 and 400 Free at this competition surpass the 2017 SEA Games Bronze medal performance, but her 200 PB from earlier in the year is good enough for Silver at SEA Games.

;

Nicole Oliva Makes Big Splash at World Youth Level

Rising Filipino swimming star Nicole Oliva, 16, made it all the way to the finals at the Youth Olympic Games Final in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Nicole Oliva clocked 2:02.08 to qualify 8th and last going into the finals.

And then upgraded to 7th place in the final with a slightly slower time of 2:02.13.

Nicole Oliva

The mark was a big improvement in her performance at the World Swimming Championships last year, where she did 2:05.55 and placed 36th of 54 athletes.

The 5’7 Nicole Oliva is at St. Francis High School in the United States. And represents Santa Clara Swim Club.

Allison Beebe coaches her.

The Philippine Record in 200 Free is 2:00.84, set by Jasmine Alkhaldi at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore. Nicole Oliva has timed 2:00.98 earlier in the year at the Pan  Pacific Games in Tokyo.

Popular Young Swimmer Micaela Jasmine Modjeh Breaks National 200 Butterfly Age Grade Record (video)

Feb 21, 2018

We previously reported about a swimmer being developed by the Philippine Swimming League (PSL). Jasmine Modjeh with the help of the Philippine Sports Commission.

Surprisingly the write-up has amassed 1500 reads. This young swimmer is just as popular as Hidilyn Diaz (Weight Lifting), Mary Joy Tabal (Athletics), or Ochoa (Jujitsu). So when we heard the news that Modjeh had broken a national age-grade record. We were quick to write a follow-up. Pinoyathletics started with Athletics but quickly became the voice ‘roar’ of the Filipino Athlete.

Philippines Swimming
Philippines Swimming

Philippines Swimming

First, note Modjeh is a Filipino-Iranian hence the surname.  Modjeh was born towards the end of 2006. Took the Filipino 200m Butterfly age Grade Record for 13 and Under. Her mark was 2:25.82, which broke the record set by Regina Maria Paz Castrillo at the Speedo League NCR Leg 1 on August 8, 2013.  we established this new mark at the 2018 Middle Eastern  Open Swimming Championships held at the Hamdan Sports Complex in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, on February 18.

Please note that even though the media has been noted as a National Junior Record, the actual Junior Record is 2:18.80, set by Marichi Gandionco in 2004 as a 14-year-old. The age division which Modjeh will move up to next year.

Modjeh time was a big improvement of more than 11 secs on her best time last year of 2:37.03 time set in the Thanyanpura invitational meet last February.

Besides the Philippines and the Czech Republic, participants from Hungary, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon, Bahrain, India, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar also competed in the three-day meet.

11 Yr Old Swimmer Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh Sets Sights 2024 Olympics

(Go For Gold Facebook Quoted If I’m not mistaken, she broke the age-group record of Singapore’s first gold medalist Joseph Schooling in a Singapore tournament just recently, which Schooling recorded in 2006.)

A comparison of Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh Scores to National Age Grade Records on Pinoyswimming.com.

Pinoyathletics will rely on these more so than the Batang Pinoy Records as these are more comprehensive.

Hence the Comparison of Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh’s performance (left side) is to the National Under 13 Records (right side).

I was informed that Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh was born in 2005; hence, it is still under 13.

k

Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh 5 Golds

  1. 50m Butterfly 30.64 / Record 29.07/ Palaro Record 29.68
  2. 50m Breaststroke 38.54/ Record 35.35/ Palaro Record 36.63
  3. 200m Individual Medley 2:37.64/ Record 2:31.04/Palaro Record  2.33.71
  4. 100m Butterfly 1:10.34/ Record 1:05.20/ Palaro Record 1.06.91
  5. 100m Breast Stroke 1:23.88 / Record 1:18.73/ Palaro Record 1.19.35

k

While based on this analysis, she is actually closest to the 200m Individual Medley Under 13 Record, taking distance and time differentials into account.

While she has 1-2 years left in this age category, she is within 2 secs of the Palarong Pambansa record in 200 IM and within the 50m, Butterfly, and Breast Stroke events range. 

The time of 2.37.64 ranks Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh 7th on the 13 and Under Rankings (pinoyswimming.com). Her main opponent in the Palaro might be Maglia Jayce Dignadice, last-year bronze medalist in this event in elementary, who has a comparable time of 2.37.90.

All the other athletes ranked above Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh are overage for Palaro 2018.PSL has really found themselves a very potential athlete. However, it’s earlier days yet, and who knows what could happen with support, etc.

Philippine Swimming League (PSL) standout Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh bagged five gold medals. In the Palarong Pam­bansa qualifying tournament. Held at the Olivarez Swimming Pool in Parañaque City.

Representing Immaculate Heart of Mary College-Parañaque. Most noteworthy was the 11-year old Mojdeh dominated all her individual events in the girls’ elementary division.  Hence earning a spot in the Palarong Pambansa National Capital Region qualifying meet in February.

Especially relevant is the fact she is at her young age already a veteran of international competitions. Hence giving her the experience and much-needed confidence boost. Consequently, Mojdeh made her presence felt early in the tournament by ruling the 50m butterfly in 30.64 seconds. And the 50m breaststroke in 38.54 seconds.

Furthermore, Mojdeh continued her impressive showing in the afternoon session. Simultaneously, she reigned supreme in the lung-busting 200m Individual Medley in two minutes and 37.64 seconds.  Besides, capping her campaign with two more gold medals in the 100m butterfly (1:10.34) and 100m breaststroke (1:23.88).

“I’m happy that I was able to perform well in this competition. I was able to beat my personal best in all those events but it doesn’t mean anything yet. I need to improve my times for the next level of the competition which is the regional meet,” Mojdeh said.

 

Mojdeh has been winning gold medals in different international competitions this year.

She actually set six Philippine junior national records in the girls’ 10-year category early this year during the 2017 Japan Age-Group Swimming Championship held in Tokyo. (please check pinoyswimming.com to verify)

Also, Mojdeh stamped her class in the 100m butterfly (1:11.35), 50m butterfly (32.22), 100m breaststroke (1:25.52), 50m breaststroke (39.58), 200m Individual Medley (2:39.6), and 100m Individual Medley (1:14.3).

 

Last year, Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh earned gold medals in the

  • Winter Kanto Plain Championship;
  • Indian Ocean All-Stars Challenge in Perth, Australia; CNEF Stingrays
  • Invitational Meet in Hong Kong; 12th SICC Invitational Swim Meet in Singapore;
  • 2016 Buccaneer Invitational Swim Meet in Tokyo, Japan;
  • Hamilton Swimming Championship in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Also, she was a back-to-back recipient of the prestigious Philippine Sportswriters Association Tony Siddayao award. A most noteworthy honor given to young outstanding athletes in the country.

Consequently, the Immaculate Heart of Mary College-Parañaque tanker is being groomed for the 2024 Olympic Games.

“I’ll just continue my training and try my best as I really aim to qualify for the Olympics in the future. It’s everybody’s dream to compete in the Olympics and I want to make that dream a reality. I know it won’t be easy but I’m ready to face the challenge,” said Mojdeh.

sunrises flags fall on the opening night of swimming finals.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Sun Yang thought he’d seen it all in his glittering swimming career. That was until Sunday’s opening night of swimming finals at the Asian Games.

In an embarrassing technical blunder for game organizers, the flag hoist collapsed during the Chinese national anthem playing as Sun stood atop the podium after winning the 200-meter freestyle final.

Officials picked the flags up off the pool deck and hastily reattached them to the broken metal hoist but were unable to raise them again while the anthem was played for a second time, to the bemusement of Sun and spectators watching in the stands.

China primed to meet the challenge from Japan.

With three-time Olympic freestyle champion Sun Yang leading the way, China’s vaunted team of pool sharks is determined to take a bite out of the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta.

Three days before the competition opens, the Gelora Bung Karno Aquatic Center in a southern suburb of the Indonesian capital was the scene of frenzied action on Wednesday as Chinese swimmers tested the water in a final tune-up for the quadrennial event.

Sun vows to spearhead China’s dominance while warding off strong challenges from archrival Japan as the team’s undisputed leader in and out of the water.

“I’ve fully prepared for the Asian Games after intensive training in Hong Kong, where I improved my aerobic endurance for the long-distance events,” said Sun, who will compete in all four individual freestyle events from 200m to 1500m in Jakarta.

At the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, Sun lost his opening 200 to Japanese underdog Kosuke Hagino. Still, it rebounded to win gold in the 400 and 1500, as well as the men’s 4×100 free relay, contributing greatly to China’s leading haul of 22 golds.

Hot stuff: China swim king Sun eyes Asian sweep

by Alastair HIMMER
Philippines Swimming 2014-2021 Comprehensive #1 Guide 13

Agence-France Presse

Brash, belligerent, and often painted as swimming’s big, bad wolf, Chinese giant Sun Yang will be looking to salvage his rivals at the Asian Games.

The triple Olympic champion is poised to swim the men’s 200m, 400m, 800m, and 1500m freestyle in Jakarta — and it would take an astonishing upset to deny him a gold medal sweep.

No shrinking violet, Sun triggered a diplomatic row at the 2014 Asian Games by slamming Japan’s national anthem as “ugly” after being ambushed by Kosuke Hagino in the 200m free in Korea.

Sun was banned for three months in 2014 for taking trimetazidine, prescribed for a heart condition and which had only been included on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of illegal substances four months earlier.

Rival swimmers tore into Sun at the Rio Olympics in 2016, where Australian Mack Horton labeled him a “drug cheat,” and Frenchwoman Camille Lacourt sniffed that Sun “pees purple.”

Philippines Swimming 2014-2021 Comprehensive #1 Guide 25

By Lailani Velasco OIC  of Philippine Swimming Incorporated

It was an honor and privilege for me to represent our country as a Bureau Member of the Asian Swimming Federation in the recently concluded 9th Asian Age Group Championships in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Philippine team of Bhay Newberry, Camille Lauren Buico, Thanya Dela Cruz, and Sam Alcos, coached by Marichi Gandionco. Our 4

swimmers came home with…

– 3 Gold from Bhay Newberry

– 1 Silver from Camille Buico

– 2 Bronze from Camille Buico and Thanya Delia Cruz

This is the first time that the Philippines has garnered Gold in the Asian Age Group Championship! This event is recognized as the most important Age Group Swim Meet in Asia.

Gold medalist Bhay Newberry and Silver medalist Camille Buico and Coach Marichi were part of the Philippine Sports Commission’s Junior Team to train in Santa Clara and Seattle last June-July 2017. I hope that our Junior swimmers will continue to be given opportunities to train in similar swim camps because they hope for the future and the valuable lessons they learn. Let us continue to harness our young swimmers’ talents to reap the harvests in the years to come.

Congratulations to our Artistic Swimming Team- Jem Tiambeng, Isabel Pacheco, Coach Maria Elizabeth, and Coach Reina Rose Enriquez-Suarez. Well done, girls!

Thank you, and congratulations to the Uzbekistan Swimming Federation for a successful event!

Thank you to Chairman Butch Ramirez, the PSC Board, and the PSC staff for your all-out support to our Junior Athletes.

Lastly, Thank You, dear God, for all the blessings, guidance, and strength. ??

2017 Batang Pinoy Luzon Santiago Swimmer takes 5 Golds

Vigan City, A swimmer from Santiago City, Isabella captured 5 Golds. 11-year-old Jalil Taguinod. In the 12 Under Age Category for Boys.  We did these in 3 days.

I have ranked his events, starting with the best performance.

200m Individual Medley 2 min 31.29

  • This mark is already below the Batang Pinoy Record 2 min 31.29 of MC Tracy Alindogan, set 5 years in the 2012 Batang Pinoy Finals.
  • The Under 13 Record, according to pinoyswimming.com, is 2 min 19.85  set by Michael Mars Danila in 2002. Since there is no Under 12 record and Jalili is still 11 (2006), there is some time to catch up.

200m Breaststroke 2 min 46.01 secs

  • Also within the range of the record of Ethan Roy Co 2 min 45.41, 2014

100m Breaststroke 1 min 16.27 secs

  • The Batang Pinoy Record is 1 min 15.21 Ethan Roy Co, 2014
  • This will give Jalil a good chance at the Final to break that

50m Breaststroke 33.58 secs

  • Quite far from Joshua Taleon 31.88 in 2014

50m Back 39.92 secs

  • Very far from the Batang Pinoy Record of Seth Martin 31.12

This was 5 of 6 golds; the only gold he could not help his team win the 4×200 medley relay on Thursday.

Aug 20, 2017

With Synchronized swimming complete, the Philippines finished with 0 medals in these events. Jemimah Nissi Tiambeng and Allyssa Marey Salvador finished with a final score of 59.6333.

Likewise, in Water Polo, the Philippines lost its last Game against Indonesia 12-5. With 3 losses, this placed the Mens Team 4th with Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia getting the top 3 medals in Water Polo

 

Swimming 2017 SEA Games Day 4 – Medals campaign on hold for the day

The Philippines in Men’s Water Polo has 2 losses and 1 win now, a 7-5 loss to Singapore.

The Philippines also did not medal in the synchronized swimming, with Deborah Fei of Singapore taking the Gold in the Solo Free routine. Aaliyah Pachecho did not place in the top 3. Malaysia won the solo technical of sync swimming with Fei of Singapore retaking second the Philippines failed to medal.

 

SEA Games Aug 16, 2017

Meanwhile, the Philippines Men’s Water Polo was unlucky today, losing narrowly 8-7 to hosts Malaysia. After winning a stunning 9-7 over 2015 SEA Bronze medallists Thailand. After having no wins in the 2015 SEA Games. While Defending Champions Trounced Thailand 13-2 in the other pool.

2017 SEA Games Day 2 – Philippine Mens Water Polo beats Thailand in Opening Game

Aug 15, 2017

Philippines Swimming 2014-2021 Comprehensive #1 Guide 27

How good for the morale of the Team was it that the Philippines won their first event?

The Philippines beat Thailand in Men’s Water Polo on Day 2 of the 2017 SEA Games. In their first-round match, the Philippines triumphed 9-7 over Thailand. Thailand was the Bronze medallists in the 2015 games edition. Even though early days, the win is a huge moral victory for the Philippines, eluded from a gold medal in Aquatics in the last 3 SEA Games.

This delighted  Philippine Swimming Incorporated OIC Lailani Velasco, who witnessed the event.

In an earlier match, 2015 Silver Medalists Indonesia beat Malaysia 4-3.

The SEA Games Water Polo is a round-robin tournament. Each contestant meets each other in turn, rather than an elimination tournament, which is knockout. The Philippine Men will next play Malaysia tomorrow and Singapore the day after that. With just 4 teams participating. The top 2 in the pool will play for the Gold and Silver and the other two the

Bronze medal. The Philippines’ win over Thailand gives it a good chance of bagging a medal this time.

 

Philippine Swimming Leads the way in Fair Selection selects only athletes who hit Bronze for SEA Games.

July 24, 2017

Philippines Swimming 2014-2021 Comprehensive #1 Guide 28

I would like to congratulate Philippine Swimming Incorporated PSI despite taking a bit longer. We know it’s due to careful analysis of data and planning.

To sticking to and abiding by a fair and measurable selection process. Strictly the bronze medal standard. And not opening the back door’ to make exceptions to their clear and transparent selection system.

When you ‘Bend the Rules’ in a selection process, you open the doors to other athletes and coaches questioning the association’s judgment and credibility. With these scenarios

“If my athlete didn’t hit your criteria, why did you let xxx athlete who didn’t hit the criteria come into the team.”

With Fair Selection for Measurable Sports

  1. Measurable Sports = Measurable System Methodology based on numbers. Whether the bronze medal or FINA Points or whatever.
  2. Effective Data mining of opponents strength
  3. Absolutely no Favoritism. Think with Brain and not Heart when selecting. The athlete actually has the performance rather than “I think this athlete will perform well.
  4. Selection system methodology and team list made public. So all stakeholders and members of the community can see the transparent and fair selection reasoning. It also saves an association from repeating themselves, explaining the same thing repeatedly when people start emailing or calling up. Easier to point them towards a web link so the association can spend more time ‘well running the association;

While other opinions are, we should be giving other athletes the chance to participate. I think that it’s better to send younger athletes being developed to international Age Grade meets.

If the SEA Games is a lower-level meet, then hitting the bronze should not be too much to ask.

More young athletes need to be supported so they have more chances to hit the bronze standard. And with that extra support, they should have no trouble qualifying for SEA Games. This extra support involves measurable selection for Youth age-grade meets. In cooperation, PSC has agreed to send young swimmers to a training camp in the United States.

Although more investment in youth meets, which swimmers are usually funding themselves, would be beneficial also. Quite a large delegation is going to the ASEAN School Games next month,

If athletes cannot qualify for the SEA Games Bronze standard with full support, they may need to find other athletes to develop.

Getting sent to SEA Games is an incentive for athletes to strive to hit the bronze medal mark.

And just sending everyone would lose the prestige of those who hit the bronze medal mark.

Swimming’s Officer in Charge Lailani Velasco stood firm on not including an athlete who failed to make the bronze. All 10 swimmers selected made the bronze. As soon as you make one exception, it opens the back door for all kinds of appeals and complaints, which would have taken the focus and energy away from preparing for the games.

Velasco, who is the PSI Secretary-General, is looking after the Swimming Association with its President Mark Joseph away for the time being.

  1. These are the 10 Swimmers who hit the bronze and qualified for the team
  2. Updated the team is now down to 8 with Hall and Chua pulling out due to school commitments

Written by  Tribune Wires, Monday, 18 August 2014 00:00

NANJING — Swimmer Roxanne Yu and triathlete Vicky Deldio gave their best for the Philippines but couldn’t leave a mark in the second Youth Olympic Games (YOG).

The Filipinas, both 16, were pitted against the best in their respective events Sunday and found it hard to keep pace in the first day of intense action.

Roxanne Ashley Yu, a scholar at the British International School in Phuket, saw action in the girls’ 100-meter backstroke qualifying heats at the Nanjing Olympic Center Natatorium.

She booked a time of one minute and 5.16 seconds to surpass her previous personal best of 1:05.20.

The 5-foot-5 swimmer under high-precision coach Simon Jones of Australia finished fourth in her heat that Eleni Anna Koutsoveli of Greece won in 1:03.48.

After the five heats involving 33 swimmers, Yu ranked 26th. Only the top 16 swimmers led by Clara Smiddy of the United States (1:01.73) made it to the finals set Sunday evening.

You said it was a great experience for her to swim against the best in her field.

“I’m okay. It was my best time in the event, and I’m happy with that,” said the former student of the Immaculate Concepcion Academy in San Juan.

Yu has one event left in this quadrennial event that drew around 3,600 athletes from 202 nations. Overall, there are 222 gold medals staked in 28 sports.

On Tuesday, she will compete in the 200-meter backstroke.

“I will be back to try to give my best,” said Yu a couple of hours after her morning race. She said it felt so different racing in the YOG.

“It feels really different racing against swimmers of different nationalities—Iba-iba ang itsura.

It was a very different kind of atmosphere.

“But it felt so good. All the people were cheering during the race. And when we called my name, I could hear our delegation cheering my name,” she added.

The 5-foot-5 swimmer under high-precision coach Simon Jones of Australia finished fourth in her heat that Eleni Anna Koutsoveli of Greece won in 1:03.48.

After the five heats involving 33 swimmers, Yu ranked 26th. Only the top 16 swimmers led by Clara Smiddy of the United States (1:01.73) made it to the finals set Sunday evening.

You said it was a great experience for her to swim against the best in her field.

“I’m okay. It was my best time in the event, and I’m happy with that,” said the former student of the Immaculate Concepcion Academy in San Juan.

Yu has one event left in this quadrennial event that drew around 3,600 athletes from 202 nations. Overall, there are 222 gold medals staked in 28 sports.

On Tuesday, she will compete in the 200-meter backstroke.

“I will be back to try to give my best,” said Yu a couple of hours after her morning race. She said it felt so different racing in the YOG.

“It feels really different racing against swimmers of different nationalities—Iba-iba ang itsura.

It was a very different kind of atmosphere.

“But it felt so good. All the people were cheering during the race. And when we called my name, I could hear our delegation cheering my name,” she added.

Josh Hall: Filipino Swimming Superstar

April 13, 2014

Josh Hall recently made his first splash on the International scene, winning a bronze medal at the 2013 Southeast Asian Games and competing at the World Championships for The Philippines in Barcelona, breaking multiple National records along the way.

But his journey started much earlier, beginning in Germany and taking him through Wisconsin as a state champion and onto a swimming scholarship to become one of the best breaststrokers in The University of Minnesota’s history.

Born in Germany to a military family with a Filipino mother whose parents were married in Japan, Josh moved to Wausau, Wisconsin, at age 5. Swimming seemed to be the only thing his older sister could beat him in, so the young and competitive Josh decided to begin swimming, eventually joining the Wausau Tide Swim Club, which took his swimming career to the next level. After winning state titles in Wisconsin, the University of Minnesota offered Josh a scholarship to qualifying for the NCAA Championships.

As Josh’s mother is Filipino, he competed for The Philippines at the 2013 Southeast Asian Games and World Championships, with Josh saying, “the journey has been really, really fun.” Josh is on track to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics for The Philippines but will need support to get there.

When competing for the Filipino National team, he had access to a physical therapist, massage therapist, and sports psychologist. As Josh is now graduated, he does not have access to these tools at his University. Additionally, Josh is looking to represent The Philippines on the 2014 Asian leg of the World Cup circuit in Singapore, China, and Japan; but his travel is not covered to get to the meets to compete.

Additionally, Josh’s dream is to ensure that his parents can see him compete in person at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, on his road to Rio. “I want them all to see a kid who dreamed of going to the Olympics at 10 years old and then see him realize that crazy dream 15 years later,” says Josh.

Help Josh gets to the 2016 Olympics for The Philippines with the training and travel he needs and helps his parents get to The Asian Games to watch their son compete in person.

50% of all funds achieved over Josh’s goal will go to the Philippines Red Cross for typhoon relief.

Lorenzo Jenkins Labao has seven titles in Swimming

Jan 31, 2014

Jenkins being interviewed by the Media.

BATANG PINOY press release

BACOLOD CITY — Fifteen-year-old Lorenzo Jenkins Labao of Baguio City caught two more gold medals from the pool yesterday to become the most bemedalled athlete in the meet with seven titles in the Batang Pinoy national finals at Panaad Park and Stadium here.

The shy, soft-spoken Labao surprised everyone, even himself, after the masterful sweep of his events, considering that Baguio City wasn’t known as a swimming superpower because of its old climate.

“Because it’s too cold in Baguio, only a few of us really excelled because only a few us showed hard work and determination to continue training in cold waters,” said the third-year high from University of Baguio Preparatory School.

He completed his collection with the boys 13-15 100-meter butterfly and 200m individual medley. He has strung up victories in 400m free, 50m butterfly, 400m IM, 200m medley, freestyle relay, Dan Christian Leyba, Renz Gawidan, and Neil Nazarro.

But it was still Quezon City, which wound up with most triumphs in medal-rich swimming with 14 golds, propelled by Raissa Gavino and Kirsten Chloe Daos, who accounted for three victories each.

Baguio City chalked 10 golds, while Davao City, Manila, Lucena, and Bohol bagged five gold medals.

In triathlon held early in the morning, Sta. Rosa, Laguna’s Julius Constantino scored an upset over national pool reserve Frederick Albert Chiongbian of Cebu City when he bagged the boy’s gold medal.

Constantino, 15, peeled way in the third and last lap around the oval in bike stage to clock 27 minutes covering 400m swim, 8.4km bike, and 2k run event. He bested Chiongbian (27:34), who is being considered for the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing this year. Cainta’s Sam Ranque was third (27:49).

The 5-foot-9 Constantino, who studies at Colegio de San Agustin, padded his lead in the run event to score his first medal in the meet after placing fourth last BP.

Twelve-year-old Nicole Eijansantos of Quezon City also pulled a surprise win herself when she left everybody behind on the swim stage to dominate the girl’s side in 29:50, besting older rivals Lauren Justine Plaza of Binan, Laguna (30:05), and Victoria Deldio of Olongapo (30:39).

Eijansantos, a six-grader from School of the Holy Spirit, led from start to finish and said it was a very tough race for her but was relieved to win the gold on her first BP appearance.

Iloilo City captured nine of the 12 gold medals at stake in arnis any competitions or forms. Crystal AJ Bartonico accounted for three of them: girls single weapon solo, double weapon solo and sword, and dagger solo.

Over at Negros Occidental National High School grounds, World Series veteran Iloilo defeated Gen. Santos City (14-2) and Bacolod (6-0) to post its fourth win seven-team girl’s softball event.

The Little League Asia Pacific/Middle East champ needs one more win to secure the top spot and outright finals berth in the single-round Page system where the second – and third-ranked teams battle it out for the last final slot.

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Swimming League, a non-profit, non-stock corporation that doesn’t depend on the government for support, is one of the few success stories in grassroots development.

The PSL was born out of necessity, conceived of by a former Asian Gamer who saw the utter deterioration of a sport she had brought to the doorsteps of the Olympics, expanded it with the help of former swimming greats, sustained its growth, and turned it into what is now a shining example of effective grassroots development for future Olympians.

SEA Games Swimming Update: Agony for Alkhaldi as Thais Demand Re-swim

December 13, 2013

Philippines swimmer looked like they had gone one better than last SEA Games with Jasmine Alkhaldi’s stunning victory in the Women’s 100m Freestyle. Hawaii-based Alkhaldi is the Filipino Record Holder in this event (56.37). The Philippines failed to secure gold in the 2011 SEA Games; however, Jessie Lacuna and Deborah Hong (who is not playing this SEA Games and is semi-retired) won medals.

Alkhaldi won the final from the highly fancied Quah and Lim from Singapore in a time of 56.65. Ting Weng Quah and Amanda Lim of Singapore clocked 56.74 and 57.21, respectively.

However, it was not to be as the Thai’s protested after the medal’s awarding, claiming that the race was not recalled when all the swimmers except the Thai went on the first beep. In swimming first beep is set the second beep is gone.

Our very own Jasmine Alkhaldi will swim again today at 6.00 pm in Myanmar. Note some of the Filipino Sprinters who did not swim were still on the start lists, such as Hannah Dato and Fahad Alkhaldi. Fil-Heritage athlete Matt Navata qualified to SEA Games on converted times, qualified third to final in his weaker event, the 400m Individual Medley.

First timer Navata finished fourth in the finals at 4:30.75.

Matt Navata at his first SEA Games

Jasmine Alkhaldi qualified second to the women’s 100m Freestyle final in 57.76 outside her Filipino Record of 56.37 set at the World Champs in Barcelona in July. Alkhaldi won her heat, she was behind in qualifying SEA #2 Qiang Qi Lim (Singapore). Lim’s teammate Mylene Ong who is #1 in SEA rankings, was not competing.

Philippines Swimmer Cordero may still join Games.

There is a strong chance that swimmer Denjylie Cordero will make it to the Southeast Asian Games despite being identified with the sport’s breakaway group.

Philippine Olympic Committee chair Tom Carrasco yesterday said they are inclined to endorse the 18-year-old who is the stalwart of the Philippine Swimming League, which had broken away from the Philippine Swimming Inc. (NB. Denjylie is 21).

“Of course, we still have to get the opinion of the PSI, through its president Mark Joseph, but this is a measurable sport, and we can say that she has a chance of winning,” Carrasco said.

University of Minnesota student Josh Hall is the country’s best bet for the gold medal in the 2013 Southeast Asian Games’ swimming competitions.

Philippine Sports Commission chairman Ricardo “Richie” Garcia hinted at what Hall can do based on the agency’s newly acquired researcher Andrew Pirie.

2013 SEA Swimming Ranking Lists 1-5

Jasmine Alkhaldi, the top female swimmer in 2013.

This site is now beginning to branch out into Swimming. As my role in the PSC involves data on various sports, there has been a demand from the swimming community and fellow researchers.

There was a further blow to Philippine Swimming when Myanmar’s organizing committee changed the submission deadline from November 15 to October 10. Meaning they could no longer rely on a few major swimming champs between those dates for qualification.

I was assisted by Hiroshi, who has helped compile the latest ranking lists for southeast Asian swimming.

After much consultation, we decided we will be including Converted swimming times from yards to Meters (mainly done by Fil-Heritage swimmers in the United States) as they have been used before for qualification for SEA Games.

It’s important to note many PSI and Non-Psi members felt converted times were justifiable for performance and qualification purposes.

Hiroshi has kindly noted the converted swimming times and what the previous time was before the conversion. We have also used the national ranking lists of Phil Swim, which we can find here. Hiroshi has also included combined relay times based on the best 4 swimmers, which he stated was traditional swimming practice.

Swimming Lacuna will not win any medals.

The Three overseas-based swimmers Jasmine Alkhaldi, Joshua Hall, and Matt Navata, deliver medals: 2 bronzes, 1 bronze, and another bronze. Navata was not put in his highest-ranked event, the 200m Breaststroke; instead, he won a bronze in the Individual Medley. Lacuna, who participated in three events, could not deliver any medals (2 silvers last sea games).

Despite the fact, a swimming guru and I compiled SEA Rankings using converted times also included (these are not as accurate as they are generally a lot faster due to additional kick of walls in shorter pools). The Fil-Heritage trio was still able to deliver on. These were the three athletes the task force had initially selected to participate in the SEA Games. Lacuna was added later on the insistence of the swimming association.
