Baguio’s Divine Wally joined the ranks of illustrious women athletes who powered Team Philippines at the recently held 18th Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The University of the Cordilleras Education student settled for bronze in the -52 kilograms against a taller and more experienced Iranian fighter in the wushu event.

Wally, the first female member of the Philippine Wushu Team to win in the World Wushu Championship in 2015 and 8th Sanda World Cup in 2016, joined fellow national wushu athlete Agatha Wong, who also won bronze in the women’s taijiquan and taijijian all-around event.

Other women athlete who won bronze in taekwondo’s -57-kg is Paulene Lopez while Meggie Ochoa won in jiu-jitsu’s 49-kg.

The trio of RinnaBabanto, Juvenille Faye Crisostomo, and Janna Dominique Oliva also won bronze medal for the country in taekwondo poomsae.

The greatest break for the Philippine Team came when 2014 Olympic silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz won gold in the women’s 53-kg weightlifting event on Aug. 21.

The best day for the Philippine team came when female Filipino-Japanese Yuka Saso scored -13 for the second gold medal while her excellent performance powered her team to another gold medal finish in the group event. Her teammates were Louis Kay Go and Bianca Pagdanganan, who also won an individual bronze.

Not to be outdone, Cherry Mae Regalado and Junna Tsuki won bronze apiece in pencak silat and karate, respectively.

Nineteen-year-old Cebuana Margielyn Arda Didal won the fourth gold medal for Team Philippines in the skateboarding women street event on Aug. 29.

On Aug. 30, Filipino-Japanese Judoka Kiyomi Watanabe earned the country’s first silver medal of the 2018 Asian Games in the women’s -63kg division.
