Team Pilipinas veteran campaigner Adeline Dumapong-Ancheta ended up with bronze in the Women’s Over-86kg event of the Powerlifting competition in the 2018 Asian Para Games, Thursday afternoon at the Balai Sudirman in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Dumapong-Ancheta, just like table tennis ace Josephine Medina, were identified as gold medal prospects for Team Pilipinas.
The 44-year-old, who won bronze in the 2000 Sydney Games, best lift came in her second attempt with 107kg.
Lee Hyunjung of Korea and Sriyanti Sriyanti of India both carried 118kg in the second tries.
The Filipina, who is a five-time ASEAN gold medalist, went for a 119kg in her last attempt but could not do so.
Lee ended up with gold as she and Sriyanti had to figure in a tiebreaker. The Korean’s first try of 115kg was a full kilo better than the Indians.
In her career, Dumapong-Ancheta now has a collection of two silvers and a bronze in the Asiad.
The Philippines remain at 11th place with a six-gold, six-silver, and seven-bronze tally.
