32nd SEA Games

Annie Ramirez hopes to retain SEAG crown

The Philippine Jiujitsu team is looking to continue their winning streak in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games, following Kaila Napolis’ impressive gold-medal showing in the women’s ne-waza GI 52kg category last Thursday.

Three more grapplers, Annie Ramirez, Myron Mangubat, and Michael Tiu, are set to take on the competition in their respective divisions at the Chroy Changvar Convention Center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The pressure is on as Ramirez, Mangubat, and Tiu aim to match Napolis’ golden finish, which brought the Philippines its first gold medal in the 2023 SEA Games.

The jiujitsu team needs just one more victory to equal their two-gold medal haul in the previous edition of the games held in Vietnam.

Ramirez, who won the gold in the 62kg class of the last games, is expected to showcase her skills in the women’s ne-waza no-gi 57kg class.

Meanwhile, Mangubat will be competing in the men’s ne-waza GI 62kg division, and Tiu will be going head to head in the men’s ne-waza gi 69kg class.

The jiu jitsu fighters have been training hard for this moment, putting in countless hours of hard work and dedication. Their efforts have paid off so far, and they hope to continue their winning streak in this year’s games. As they step onto the mat, they carry the hopes and dreams of their nation, representing the Philippines with pride and honor.

With the support of their coaches, teammates, and fellow Filipinos, Ramirez, Mangubat, and Tiu are ready to give it their all in pursuit of victory.
