Baguio athletes vie for gold in 2014 SoKor Asian Games

Baguio’s top athletes to the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea are almost done with their trainings in China with high hopes to bring home the gold medal.

Igorot community’s representative to the Asian Games Daniel Parantac will travel to South Korea on Sept. 17, two days before the opening of the Pancontinental multi-sport event that ends on Oct. 4.

The opening ceremony is expected to be a mix of Korean traditional culture with the modern technology.

Parantac, who traces his roots from Sadanga, Mountain Province, will serve as the team captain for the country’s taulo team.

The 2013 South East Asian Games gold medalist almost snared the gold medal in the World Wushu Championship also last year but a mistake in the final routine landed him for the silver medal.

During the SEAG, he led the bronze medal performance along with John Kiethley Chan.

The tandem of Baguio’s world-class female taulo athletes Karizza Chan and Natasha Laxamana also won bronze in duilan women in SEAG.

The 17th Incheon Asian Games, officially known as the XVII Asiad is expected to have 45 nations participating with 439 events in 36 sports and disciplines set to be featured in the games.

China has dominated the games.

In 2010, the Chinese contingent took home 416 medals including 199 gold.

This year’s host finished second in that meet with 232 medals including 76 gold. Japan was third with 216 medals, while India was sixth.

After the Asian Games, Parantac hopes to compete in another international event in Taipei in November this year.

The University of the Cordilleras graduate was conferred the “Athlete of the Decade” in the 20th Kafagway Sports Achievers Awards 2013.
