ASEAN Para Games: Severino captures fourth gold as PH surpasses 2017 gold haul

After Angel Otom’s treble in swimming, FIDE Master Sander Severino racked up his fourth gold medal in the ongoing 11th ASEAN Para Games in Surakarta, Indonesia on Thursday.

Severino anchored once again the men’s squad to a sweep of the men’s P1 team and individual rapid event at the Lo-rin Hotel grand ballroom.

Severino boosted his collection to four golds as the PH para-athletes totalled 21 golds, 19 silver, and 37 bronzes in the afternoon to surpass their 20-20-29 tally in the 10th edition held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2017.

“Today is a great day for our para-athletes, who have surpassed our previous best in Kuala Lumpur. I would like to offer this as a tribute to the late President Fidel V. Ramos, who urged us to form our group for para-athletes way back in 1996,” Barredo said from Manila.

“My hope is that we also surpass our finish of fifth overall in the medal standings with some more events remaining,” Barredo said.

It was also the country’s best finish since it scooped up 24 golds in the 2009 edition in Kuala Lumpur.

Also contributing a pair of silvers was 2000 Sydney Paralympic bronze medalist Adeline Dumapong Ancheta in the women’s +86-kilogram division of powerlifting.
