“We have once again showcased Filipinos’ inherent world-class talent; that we are built to endure, survive, and succeed in global competitions. Today is one of those moments when we are very proud to be called Pinoys. The whole team channeled their Tunay na Lakas para sa Pilipinas,” Marcia Cristobal, PDBF President, proudly shares.
The victory was bittersweet, as several members of the Cobra-PAL PDBF team were unable to compete as their visas were not approved. States Hubert L. Tan, SVP, Commercial at Asia Brewery, “That the team competed and emerged victorious even without the complete lineup is a testament of their true strength embodied by perseverance in the face of challenges, determination despite all obstacles, and resolve in the face of competition.”
Continues PAL President, Jaime Bautista, “The Philippine paddlers are a true source of pride for all Filipinos. We are honored to witness and be part of history as the Cobra-PAL PDBF team soar to even greater heights with every competition. Their resolve, tenacity, and tireless pursuit in competition is truly humbling.”
The Philippine paddlers left the country Monday targeting only 3 gold wins, but came home with a sweet victory of 4 gold medals. Besting rival countries Macau, Hungary, Italy, and Puerto Rico for the 500M premier mixed with the best time of 4:26.942 and senior A mixed with the best time of 4:53.905, the Cobra-PAL rowers emerged as the champions in the 200M and 500M Mixed divisions for the Small Boat category.
