Beau Belga repeats as PBA Obstacle Course champion

MANILA, Philippines—Beau Belga really does love the dramatic.

Rain or Shine’s big man got up from one epic slide and repeated as the PBA’s Obstacle Course champion during the 2019 All-Star Weekend in Calasiao, Pangasinan Friday.


Belga clocked in at 21.0 seconds in the final run, where his only mistake was a missed free throw to finish just 0.3 seconds faster than first runner-up Russell Escoto of Columbian.


That, however, wasn’t the most dramatic rise for Belga in the big man challenge.

Belga was well ahead of Meralco’s Bryan Faundo in the semifinals before slipping in the course’s chest pass area.

Faundo, though, wasn’t able to take advantage of Belga’s gaffe.

“I stepped on the marker and my momentum was going forward and my shoes at the back slipped,” said Belga in Filipino.

“When I got down I knew that I’d lose, but when I got up I saw Bryan was still on the passing area.”
