SEA Games: Isleta, Geriane finish 2-3 100m backstroke

Chloe Isleta and Jess Geriane added two more medals to the Philippine national swimming team’s haul after ending with the silver and the bronze in the women’s 100-meter backstroke of the 31st Southeast Asian Games swimming competitions, Tuesday at the My Dinh Water Sports Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Isleta, who broke the 29-year Games title drought for the Philippines in women’s swimming the other night with the 200m gold, could not make it back-to-back as Indonesia’s Flairene Candrea Wonomiharjo found some finishing kick to snag the gold this time with 1:03.36.

Isleta touched the pad 0.42 seconds later at 1:03.78, while Geraine made a good swim from the outside to tap after the former with 1:03.86.

Jerard Jacinto almost took the men’s side’s first medal of the Games but finished in fourth place in the 50-met backstroke with 26.04, 0.16 seconds behind Indonesia’s I Gede Siman Sudartawa who took the bronze.

Miranda Renner also missed the podium by a hair in the women’s 50-meter butterfly with 26.99. Quah Jing Wen of Singapore nosed out Renner for the bronze with 26.98.
