World wushu bet Faith Liana Andaya led all combative athletes in Baguio with three golds as the city snared an initial 15 gold, 14 silver, and nine bronze medals in the Batang Pinoy national finals in Bacolod City.

The 11-year-old Andaya was superb in her performances in sword, spear, and bare hands, the usual things she does in international outings.

Andaya’s older teammates, Vanessa Jo Chan and Joel Casem, also won two golds apiece while junior wushu players Hazel Angela Dalisay, Aleca Briana Dumseng, Christian Nicolas Lapitan, and Dencel Julius Parantac contributed one gold each.

Single silver medalists in wushu are Aiene Leiga Terado, Bruce Jeriel Tinaud, Dalisay, and Ranyag Anthony Quitasol.

Lapitan and Dumseng have two silvers apiece.

Terado and Quitasol also won one bronze apiece together with Sebastian Turingan.

City Sports Coordinator Gaudencio Gonzales said taekwondo jin players Ivan Murray Solimen, Gabriel Salaknib Soria, and Ejay Dongbo won gold apiece while Chelsea Xen Tacay, Realis Lorena Tabiando, Christian Mapalo, and Gabriel Gongora won silver each.

Bronze medalists in taekwondo were Emma Therese Bayubay, Mary Ceniza Quiambao and Jerimei Tabisula.

The Baguio team cub girls won gold in archery while a mixed team and cub boys division snared a bronze for the city.

As of press time, Rikka Marie Ramirez won silver in arnis labanan. Baguio has been a medal hauler in arnis.

Action resumed Saturday, Dec. 13, with Gonzales hoping that Baguio will be in top three in the overall medal tally at the close of the grassroots level sports tournament featuring 26 disciplines.

Top athletes may have the chance of earning a spot in the national pool in the annual grassroots development program of the  Philippine Sports Commission.
