KUALA LUMPUR — Marion Kim Mangrobang snatched the Philippines’ third gold medal after winning women’s triathlon in a powerful 1-2 finish with former champ Ma. Claire Adorna Monday in the Southeast Asian Games.

Trained in Portugal, the 25-year-old Mangrobang won the event after placing second to Adorna during the 2015 SEAG in Singapore in a similar 1-2 fashion.

She clocked 2:11:14, while Adorna, the 2015 champion, finished in 2:18:58. Adorna is reportedly nursing a injury but her time was enough to beat out Irene Chong of Malaysia who timed 2:25:44.

It was the third gold by the Philippines so far in the biennial meet and one bolstered the dominating performance by its triathletes who ruled both the men’s and women’s categories.
