    We have 3 boxers entering the semifinals which assures us of 3 bronze medals.  If they win all tonight, we are assure of 3 silver medals and a chance for 3 more gold medals

    Wrong, they won their quarterfinals match already and they are advancing to the semifinal match.  They are assured already of 3 bronze medals.

    The tweet was right. The tweet was made on the 27th when Paalam and Marcial won their respective matches in the Round of 16, hence advancing to quarterfinals.

    Si Kiyomi na lang ang natira sa mga judo athletes natin. She will fight for our 5th gold later this afternoon (Finals ng 63kg division) against either a Japanese or Chinese. 

    Si Jann Mari, mapapalaban sa Round of 32. Top caliber ang kalaban from Hongkong. (Table Tennis)

    Oo nga, kaloka ang Bahrain. Ang galing lang...

    May mga naturalized foreigners tayo pero Basketball.

    Bakit di kaya tayo mag-naturalize ng Africans para maka-gold naman tayo sa Athletics
    Read this article about importation of athletes by some Middle Eastern countries. From Turkey to Bahrain, medyo talamak yan.

    ^Malaking issue din yan dito sa Singapore. Yung Table Tennis Association nila, kumuha ng mga players from China and binigyan ng Singapore Citizenship.

    To be fair, we now medaled in 10 sports, plus prospective medals in boxing so all in all 11. Sana magmedal sa triathlon.

    this is better than last edition, although it is expected since we have more participants in more events. Nakakahiya kung hindi pa tayo magkamedal sa mas maraming sports

    That's true. Unlike saten na usually half-Pinoy half-something na kinaiinisan ng ibang SEA countries, sa ibang bansa, they take foreigners talaga then binibigyan ng citizenship.

    Sayang pero it was really a tight race among the 2nd-10th participants. Good to know they were the best performing athletes from SEA, though. We can still claim a 1-2 finish next year in this event.

    2014 Asian Games
    1-3-11
    15 total medals
    Overall Rank: 22nd
    7th among SEA nations

    2018 Asian Games (as of Aug 31, 2018)
    4-1-13
    18 total medals
    Rank: 17th
    6th among SEA nations

    15th place finish is still achievable or even higher than that. Sana makasnatch sa men's triathlon lol.
    With this record, pretty much a good performance ng Team PH. Sana may surprise medal pa ngayon at bukas!

    not sure about their chances sa triathlon relay

    sa boxing na lang talaga

    i think we are currently 5th among SEA Nations 

    1. INA The HOST
    2. Thailand
    3. Malaysia
    4. Vietnam 
    5. Philippines
    6. Singapore

    If PHI can snatch atleast 2-3 more golds then we can topple VIE and even MAS if they wouldnt get golds

    Rogen Ladon is thru to the finals...mabigat kalaban nya sa finals, Asian champ from UZB

    actually mabibigat lahat dadaanan ng remaining boxers natin all from Uzbekistan

    if Carlo Paalam wins his semis match vs India, he might face Rio gold medalist of UZB in the finals...sana ma-upset ng CHI sa semis lol

    Felix Marcial will also face an Uzbek Asian champ in the semis

    tiwala lang....
