All things turned out well in the recent staging of the Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association 2018 Meet in Abra with Baguio, for the nth time, dominating the event with a total of 222 gold, 102 silver, and 61 bronze medals.

Baguio’s medal haul was courtesy of the combined medals from the elementary division with 76 gold, 35 silver and 23 bronze and secondary division with 146 gold, 67 silver, and 38 bronze.

But this year’s medal haul is slightly lower than last year’s 232 golds, 112 silvers, and 59 bronzes.

Bulk of the city’s medals came from athletics, archery, swimming, arnis, taekwondo, and baseball, among other sports events held in various venues in Abra from Feb. 4 to 9. 

Perennial second placer is Benguet with 38 gold, 66 silver, and 82 bronze medals. It was the combined efforts of the elementary division’s 14-38-30 medal haul and secondary division’s 24-28-52 medals.

Benguet athletes led the charge in the volleyball elementary, football elementary; and  topped the indigenous arm-wrestling in the secondary division.

The province improved its medal haul from last year’s 33-78-83.

Ifugao jumped three notches higher from sixth place last year to third place this year with 36 gold, 55 silver, and 60 bronze medals.

Likewise, host Abra also improved from seventh place last year to fourth place this year with 23 gold, 62 silver, and 65 bronze medals.

Apayao remained on fifth place but improved its performance with 22 gold, 41 silver and 71 bronze compared to last year’s 16-33-61 medals.
