SAN FERNANDO, PAMPANGA — Meggie Ochoa was a plane above the rest in the 30th Southeast Asian Games’ under-45kg division, Monday at the Laus Group Convention Centre.

Coming off a first place finish in the Jiu-jitsu Asian Championship, the 29-year-old grappling wizard outclassed both of her foes to win the Philippines’ second gold in the sport.

To start off her campaign, Ochoa displayed composure early before blasting Thailand’s Kanjutha Phattaraboonsorn with a dominant 11-2 win via points.

Gaining momentum, the Ateneo product grounded Vietnam’s Le Thu Trang Dao in the finals, 12-0.

This caps another banner year for the country’s ace in the sport.
