For his part, Lopez ended up with a silver with a 5.0. Rom completed the podium sweep with a 4.5.
Beside the trio, Arman Subaste ended up with bronze in the Men’s Individual Rapid VI – B2/B3, while the teams of Arman Subaste, Redor Menandro, and Israel Peligroso (B2-B3), and Francis Ching, Rodolfo Sarmiento, and Cecilio Bilog (B1) also unearthed bronze.
