NEW CLARK CITY — The Philippines bagged five of six gold medals disputed in latin discipline as it dominated the dancesport competitions Sunday in the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

Wilbert Aunzo and Pearl Marie Caneda wowed the crowd as well as the judges at the jam-packed Royce Hotel to snare the golds in slow samba, chacha and rumba.


Another Filipino pair, Michael Angelo Marquez and Stephanie Sabalo, added two more golds capturing the top prize in paso doble and five-dance, a counterpart of the all-events in other sports.

Marquez and Sabalo narrowly lost to Vietnam’s Nguyen Uyen and Ngyuen Thron who best them in jive (32.713 to 32.650).

Their efforts allowed the Philippines to win 10 golds all in all after scoring five victories earlier in standard discipline.
