SEA Games: Helen Aclopen, Charmea Quelino bag silvers in kurash

The Philippine national kurash team brought the first medals for the country in the 31st Southeast Asian Games after taking two silvers and two bronzes on the first day of the competitions, Tuesday at the Hoai Duc Gymnasium in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Long-time national campaigner Helen Aclopen ended with the silver in the women’s minus-48 kg.
