Pheww savors second SEAG gold

He is no longer just known as the “idol ng mga kids” in the Philippines; now he holds that title in all of Southeast Asia.

On Sunday, Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel, the midlaner for Bren Esports, made history by becoming the only MLBB esports athlete to win two gold medals in the Southeast Asian Games.

Arcangel was part of the “all-star selection” that secured the gold medal in 2019, alongside former Bren teammates Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno and Allan “Lusty” Castromayor, under the coaching of Brian “Panda” Lim.

This time, he claimed the gold medal with the entire roster of Bren Esports after winning the Sibol qualifiers earlier this year.

“Sobrang saya na nakuha ko yung gold medal. Kasi ano eh, ako lang yung sa MLBB na may 2x gold medal,” Arcangel said during the post-match interview after helping Sibol to a 3-0 sweep of Malaysia.

In addition to his personal achievements, Arcangel expressed his happiness for his teammates, who helped him and Bren Esports bounce back from their disappointing performance in MPL Philippines Season 9. This was the second consecutive season in which they missed the playoffs.

“Tapos sobrang saya ko rin para sa mga teammates ko na nagkagold medal na kami sa lahat ng paghihirap namin simula nung Season 9,” he continued.

“Lalo na si Super Marco. Plastic to eh [laughs].”
