19th Asian Games

Didal suffers mishap in Asiad skateboard title defense

Margielyn Didal’s quest to defend her title in the Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China, ended in disappointment due to injury.

Didal finished in the eighth and final position in the women’s street final on Wednesday.

An ankle injury proved to be a significant hindrance for Didal, preventing her from executing the tricks she typically excels at.

Unfortunately, this setback meant she was unable to secure a medal, let alone replicate her victorious performance from the 2018 edition of the Games.

During the competition, she managed to achieve a best score of 23.39 points in the runs portion. However, she faced a series of stumbling mishaps during the tricks phase, which prevented her from improving her score.

Despite her obvious discomfort, Didal, hailing from Cebu, bravely attempted to persevere in the tricks round with hopes of enhancing her ranking.

Regrettably, her efforts were in vain.

China dominated the event, securing the top two positions on the podium.

Cui Chenxi claimed the gold medal with an impressive score of 242.62 points, while Zeng Wenhui earned the silver medal with a score of 236.61 points.
