The Philippine National Taekwondo Team claimed its second gold in gyeorugi as Dave Cea outclassed Thailand’s Nutthawee Klompong in the men’s -74 kg, 10-5, Sunday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The former National Bulldog standout was aggressive on the get-go, building a 10-0 lead after the first round.

Despite a last-ditch effort from the Thai, Cea’s lead was too much. The latter eventually walked away with the gold.

Vietnam’s Ly Hong Phuc and Malaysia’s Zuber Syafiq took the two bronzes after exiting the semifinals.
