by Harley F. Palangchao

Baguio tanker Jenkins Lorenzo Labao executed yet another stellar performance to win seven of the 23 gold medals city athletes have amassed during the recently held Batang Pinoy national finals in Bacolod.

Labao won five gold medals in the 400-meter freestyle, 50m and 100m butterfly, and 200 and 400m individual medley.

Labao, who have collected dozens of gold medals in Batang Pinoy, Palarong Pambansa, and Philippine National Games, collected two more gold medals in group events particularly 4x50m medley relay and 4x50m freestyle relay.

His teammates are Neil Nazarro, Dan Christian Leyba, and Renz Gawidan.

Jenkins’ younger sister Elize Yanna won gold for Baguio in 100m backstroke while Gawidan also won gold in 50m backstroke. Allana Sagubo won another gold for the city in 200m backstroke.

Gawidan also won two silver medals in 50m freestyle and 50m butterfly aside from the three gold medals while Leyba won also two silvers in 200m backstroke and 50m butterfly.

While only few athletes in the city showed interest in swimming due to the cool weather and lack of pool facilities, city tankers were top medal haulers in Bacolod with 10 golds, five silvers, and two bronze medals.

Taekwondo players also contributed five golds, six silvers, and two bronze medals for the city.

The taekwondo gold medalists are Craemer Juris Quiambao, Angelica Joyce Gaw, Phoebe Kate de Guzman, Ma. Kaye ShannelleRomuar, and Alfritz Arevalo while the silver medalists are Mary Ceniza Quiambao, Kriszna Chaitania Liporada, Mark Christian Duntugan, Tricia Mae Buscagan, Davey Joshua Aquino, and John Christian Mapalo.

Rowena Chorachor and Monsour Carlo Salazar added two bronze medals apiece.

Neil Tangalin won gold in lawn tennis while the lone gold from arnis was won by LyraAcachang.

Bemedalled arnisador Norielyn settled for two silvers this time in double baston and in sword and dagger when he teamed up with Danica Caw-is and Jana Kaye Balicdang.

Aleva Botigan won silver in labanan while the Sagun also got bronze in individual anyo.

Another bronze was won by the synchronized anyo of Lyra Acachang, Kristen Tamiking, and Angele Donglay.

Three more golds and one silver each and bronze medals were also added to the city’s medal haul from athletics.

Reymark Quesada won two golds in 5,000m and 800m runs while he settled for silver in 1500m run.

Leah Taltala won gold in high jump while Geoward Ngina settled for bronze in discus throw.

Brylle Gever Vinluan won gold and silver in standard and rapid chess, respectively.

In wrestling, Athony John Tenollar and Jess Ngolab won gold apiece in 50 kilograms and 47 kg., respectively.

The silver medalists in wrestling are Raphael Bulayo, Romeo Bagni and Christian John Espiritu while the bronze medalists are Henry Foy-os and Jefferson Ignas.

City Sports Coordinator Gaudencio Gonzales said the medal tally of Baguio is higher than 23 golds, 19 silvers and nine bronzes if the medals won by the city athletes in wushu, archery and muay, which were held earlier last year, will be added.
