ASEAN University Games: Isleta bags four of five PH golds

De La Salle University’s Chloe Isleta was a one-woman wrecking crew for Team Pilipinas in the 2022 ASEAN University Games held in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand, grabbing four of the country’s five golds in the regional meet.

Isleta, who ended the country’s 29-year gold medal drought in women’s swimming during the 31st Southeast Asian Games, won gold in 50m, 100m, and 200m backstroke, as well as ruling the 200m individual medley.

The 24-year-old native of San Jose, California also took bronze in 50m freestyle.

Isleta clocked 29.57s in 50m, 1:02.70 in 100m, and 2:17.36 in 200m. Her swims in the 50m and 100m are event records.

In the 200m indiv medley, she logged a time of 2:18.95.

In the 50m free, Isleta was just .22 split seconds shy of eventual winner Marina Chan of Thailand and just .19 split seconds behind Thailand’s Jenjira Srisaard.

Also winning gold are rowing’s Alyssa Go and Kharl Sha during the Lightweight Double Scull (1000m) event.

The Philippines also copped four silvers in the biennial meet. National University (men’s volleyball); Christian Jasmin ( Lightweight Single Scull — 1000m); Manuel Isagani and Al Quiza (Men’s Team Tennis); and Joachim De Jesus and EJ Obana (Lightweight Double Scull — 1000m) finishing second in their respective events.

Team Pilipinas also took four bronzes.

The output of Team Pilipinas was way better than the one-gold finish of the country during the 2018 edition of the meet.
