With medals hard to come by, the Philippine contingent got a reprieve from 15-year-old archer Nicole Tagle, Sunday afternoon at the KL Sports City, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The young archer clinched the silver medal in women’s individual recurve event after losing to top-seeded Indonesian Diananda Choirunis in a match that went the distance, 4-6.
Tagle led after the first two ends at 3-1, sharing the points after a tie at 29 in the first and winning the second at 28-27.
The Indonesian then pushed the match to a crucial fifth, taking the fourth set at 29-27. The third frame was also a stalemate at 29.
Choirunis then used her experience to pull off a rousing 28-23 win in the final set to get the full two points and the gold.
