Caluag fails to defend BMX title, settles for bronze
Former Olympian Daniel Caluag settled for third place in the men’s BMX competition in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games Saturday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Caluag, who represented the Philippines in the 2012 London Olympics, fell behind Thailand’s Nonthakon Inkhokshong, who won silver and Indonesia’s gold medalist Gusti Bagus Saputra.
The 30-year-old Caluag, who ruled the competition in 2013, wasn’t able to defend his crown in the 2015 SEA Games after host Singapore opted not to hold a BMX event.
Caluag won the gold in the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.
