By

MANILA, Philippines – Team UAAP-Philippines strung up four silvers and six bronzes to pad on to its medal count Sunday in the 16th Asean University Games in Vientiane, Laos.

De La Salle’s Patrick Unso set his personal record in the men’s 110-meter hurdles at 14.49 seconds to bag the silver medal in athletics as posted on the competition’s official website.

Unso, who got beat out by Malaysia’s Mohamad Rohaizad for the gold, eclipsed his previous time of 14.58 he set in the final of the 2011 SEA Games.

Swimmers Johansen Aguilar of La Salle and Claire Adorna of University of the Philippines also finished second.

Aguilar settled for silver behind Indonesia’s Triady Fauzi Sidiq in the 200-meter butterfly with a time of 2:12.61 while Adorna clocked in 31.17 seconds in the women’s 50-meter backstroke.

Taekwondo jin Leigh Anne Nuguid, also of La Salle, bowed to Thailand’s Samachaya Homjitr, 1-6, in the women’s flyweight final to seize second place.

The taekwondo team ended its three-day campaign with a 2-3-2 gold-silver-bronze tally to easily surpass its one-gold haul in Chang Mai in 2010.

Christian Al dela Cruz, Season 75′s MVP in the men’s division, and Ernest John Mendoza tallied the gold medals for the Philippines, which is in sixth place (2-7-9) midway through the week-long biennial event.

Aguilar and Adorna also won the bronze in the men and women’s 400-meter individual medley in swimming respectively.

The Philippine’s other bronze medalists were UP’s Julian Mickey Cordero (men’s finweight), FEU’s Christopher Ulboc (men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase) UST’s Elbren Neri (men’s 800-meter run) and UST’s Michelle Loterte(women’s 110-meter hurdles in athletics).

Malaysia still holds the overall lead (30-23-28) followed by Vietnam (25-17-12), defending overall champion Thailand (17-23-20), host Laos (16-14-20) and Indonesia (12-18-34).
