Philippine best bet to finally bring home the elusive gold has just been eliminated in the preliminaries. It is a sad day for the Philippines for Taekwondo jinn Tshomlee Go lost Ryan Carneli of Australia in the preliminaries round of 16. If Go defeated Carneli he would have qualified in the quarterfinals,then semifinals then finals. The final round of the men's 58 kg is between Guillermo Perez of Mexico and Yulis Mercedes of the Dominican Republic. Keeping my fingers crossed for Antoinette Rivero.

  1. (Sigh!) When can we get the very elusive gold?

    If only our government will support our national athletes and have their intensive training.... like the Chinese, South Koreans, etc...

  2. yes, debbie, that has been the problem all along. the little money for the pinoy athletes goes to corruption. i'll be doing a post re this.
