Gymnastics chief sees ‘2 or 3 more’ gold medals
KUALA LUMPUR — With two golds in the bag, gymnastics chief Cynthia Carrion said the Philippines can still expect two to three more triumphs in the next few days.
Carrion, who is also the chief of mission, said she is looking at a few more wins in individual and team events in the sport being held at MITEC Hall 9.
Gymnastics has 20 golds at stake in both rhythmic and artistic disciplines, which can turn in a gold mine that Team Philippines needs.
Incidentally, it was Carrion, in her capacity as chief delegate, who forecasted a 50-gold turnout for the PH contingent.
Gold medalists Reyland Capellan in men’s artistic floor exercise and Kaitlin de Guzman in uneven bars kept the country’s campaign afloat Tuesday morning.
Capellan will still see action in vault, while the 17-year-old De Guzman will vie for golds in her favorite events, floor exercise and balance beam.
“I hope the other sports follow suit,” said Carrion who is also counting on team events.
