The Philippines added two more bronze medals courtesy of its pencak silat team on Sunday in the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.

Jefferson Loon settled for the bronze after dropping a 5-0 decision to Ngoc Toan Nguyen of Vietnam in the semifinals of the men’s 60-65kg event.


Dines Dumaan, the 2017 Southeast Asian Games gold medalist, also suffered the same fate, bowing to Muhammad Faizul M Nasir of Malaysia, 5-0, in the semis of the men’s 50-55kg class.

The Philippines now has 10 medals, nine of which are bronze, with one gold delivered by weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz.
