SEA Games: Kurash’s Sydney Sy, PH Handball Team get silvers

Sydney Sy Tangcontian absorbed a stunning loss to end with silver in the 31st Southeast Asian Games kurash competitions’ women’s over-87 kg tournament, Wednesday at the Hoai Duc District Sporting Hall in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The UAAP Season 82 women’s judo Rookie of the Year placed herself in a good chance to take the gold after wins over Malaysia’s Nor Izzatul Fazlia Mohamad Tahir and hometown bet Thi Thanh Thuy Tran.

Myanmar’s Aye Aye Aung, though, pulled off the upset over the 2019 Games sambo medallist to take the gold instead.

Another UST product in Al Llamas added a bronze medal after taking one win against Thailand’s Seksan Arnkhian in the men’s minus-60 kg event. He, unfortunately, lost to the two Vietnamese fighters in Hai Le Cong Hoan and Pham Hoang An Vo for the finish.

Adrian Perillo rounded up the competitors for the day in minus-66 kg after his loss to Vietnam’s Duc Dong Le.

Over at the Tuan Chau Island, the Philippines punctuated their silver-medal finish for the edition with a 20-11, 15-14 victory over Singapore, ending their stint with four wins and two defeats.2021-SEA-Games-Mens-Beach-Handball SEA Games: Kurash's Sydney Sy, PH Handball Team get silvers 2021 SEA Games Beach Handball Kurash News  - philippine sports news
