Jylyn Nicanor secures Philippines first 2019 SEAG fencing gold

Jylyn Nicanor completed a come-from-behind victory against Permatasari Diah of Indonesia to bag the gold in the women’s individual sabre of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, 15-14, Wednesday at the World Trade Center.

The 27-year-old product of University of the East trailed the visitor at 5-8 after the first round. She then got aggressive on attack, before a well-timed counter put her in the lead at 9-8.

Permatasari still threatened to take the win after leading at 14-13. But Nicanor snagged the last two points to take the mint.

Her mint prevented a Philippine gold shutout in the individual events, as Noelito Jose Jr. got the bronze in men’s individual epee.

Team events start on Friday, December 6.
