  • 2017 SEA Games: PH rules men's and women's triathlon with dominant 1-2 finishes

Just minutes after the pursuits of Nikko Huelgas and John Chicano, their female counterparts followed suit to finish off the country's sweep of the discipline, Monday morning at the Water Sports Complex Presint 6, Putrajaya, Malaysia.

Huelgas already established a lead of over 50 meters over Chao going into the third lap, with only one lap to go to win the gold.

Mangrobang finished with a time of 2:11:14, while Adorna clocked in at 2:18:58.

"The week starts with a good harvest of medals for the Philippines". She finished second in the 2015 edition.

Huelgas, Chicano, Mangrobang and Adorna-the four members of the Philippine triathlon squad -claimed the top medals in their event. Adorna is reportedly nursing an injury but her time was enough to beat out Irene Chong of Malaysia, who timed 2:25:44.

Over at the National Sports Center Synthetic Turf Field, archers Florante Matan, Gabriel Moreno and Mark Javier as well as Nicole Marie Tagle, Mary Queen Ybanez and Kareel Meer Hongitan claimed the bronze medals in the men's and women's recurve events.

The two golds and two silvers push Team Philippines' medal tally to three golds, four silvers, and two bronzes. Claire Adorna took the silver medals.

Thailand (6-6-7), Vietnam (6-4-5) and Indonesia (5-7-13) are just slightly ahead of the Philippines (3-6-6) heading to Day 9 of the regional meet where the Filipinos hope to strike in athletics, karate, billiards, fencing and gymnastics, among others.

Mangrobang improved from her silver medal finish two years ago in Singapore with a gold medal this year, while Adorna copped the silver after winning gold in 2015.
