WATCH: PH golden girls rule 2018 Asian Games

 

 

MANILA, Philippines – It was the women of the Philippine delegation who powered the country to a 19th place finish after capturing 4 gold medals in the 2018 Asian Games. 

Olympic silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz delivered the country's first gold medal in the 53kg women's weightlifting event of the continental tourney. 

But after other Filipino medal bets like gymnast Carlos Edriel Yulo and BMX cyclist Daniel Caluag – the country's lone gold medalist in 2014 – failed to add to the golden coffers, the women's golf team surprised the delegation with a double-gold performance. 

Yuka Saso topped the competition and edged out contest favorite Liu Wenbo by firing an eagle in the last hole. 

Her golden campaign was followed by Bianca Pagdanganan's bronze-medal finish, which helped put the Philippines on top of the women's team  event. 

Skateboarder Margielyn Didal gave the Philippines its last gold medal and left a lasting influence on the Filipinos as the closing ceremonies' flag bearer and one of TIME magazine's most influential teens of 2018. – Rappler.com
