MANILA, Philippines – Kaitlin De Guzman uplifted the Philippines in the women's artistic gymnastics uneven bars event as she reached for the gold medal at the 2017 Southeast Asian Games on Tuesday, August 22 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

After Reyland Capellan’s win in the men’s artistic gymnastics floor exercise, the Filipino-American De Guzman bagged the victory with a score of 12.875.

Tracie Ang of Malaysia settled for the silver medal with 12.550 points while Rifda Irfanaluthfi of Indonesia grabbed the bronze medal with 12.075 points.

The 17-year-old De Guzman is the daughter of former SEA Games gymnast Cintamoni De Guzman who also clinched the gold in the same event during the 1995 SEA Games.

“I am so happy now that I won a gold medal representing the Philippines,” said De Guzman, a senior at Epic Charter Home School in Dallas, Texas.

De Guzman's first place finish is the Philippines' 5th gold medal in the tournament. – with reports from pool report/Rappler.com
