280

Kumakasang nakapag-uwi ng silver medal ang GlobalPort-Philippine team sa 5th All Asia Cup 2020 nitong Pebrero 2-9 sa VS Sports Club & Siam Polo Park sa Preng, Thailand.

Yumukod man sa host team sa gold medal match sa anim na koponang torneo, kuntento si Philippine National Federation of Polo Players (PNFPP) founding director at House Deputy Speaker Mikee Romero sa ipinakita ng koponan.

“Up against some of the best teams in the Asian region, we proved we can be at par with them,” pahayag Martes ni Romero, miyembro ng PH squad na naka-bronze sa 30th Southeast Asian Games PH 2019 sa world-class Miguel Romero Field sa Calatagan, Batangas nitong Disyembre.

“Given more time to train and play in various tournaments abroad, I strongly believe we can play much better the next time. The chemistry is there so we just have to sustain it.”

Pagkatalo sa unang laro kontra rin sa Thais, rumesbak sina Anthony Garcia, Adrian Garcia, ­Robert Esguerra at Romero kontra Brunei sa dikdikan sa quarterfinals, 10-9, at Indonesia sa semifinals, 8-5.5, para mag-finals.

Pinasimulan ang polofest ni dating King Power Duty Free owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha para mapasigla ang sport sa rehiyon.
