Ando moved down from 64kg to 59kg after the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) where she won a silver medal.m.For her part, Garcia said that the MOA signing for this task force is only their first step in the fight against illegal drugs.“Si Elreen dako ta ug chance maka medal jud kay iyang timbang naalsa niya pag practice kay 105kg sa snatch unya sauna kay 97kg ra.Sa clean and jerk ni improve siya gikan sa 125 karon 135kg na.“Now, we will just have to savor our victory first.Pero mo reduce pa man siya sa iyahang timbang, mao nang maningkamot sad siya para maka medal ani nga world championships,” said Solis.We will make it very very difficult for those who intend to start another lucrative business, selling drugs, here in Cebu, well, we will make life a hell for them,” Garcia said.Ando, from Barangay Carreta will go up against 10 more weightlifters including Olympic gold medalist Kuo Hsing-Chun of Chinese-Taipei who is also the world record holder in the women’s 59kg division.“UC really played well, they really showed gaano kalaki ang puso nila, and you have to give credit to coach Joever Samonte for a very good game,” he added.Alcantara said that the zero recovery of contrabands from inside these jails is “not unusual”.
Also, Canadian Maude Charron, the gold medalist in the Tokyo Olympics’ 64kg division will be vying in the same division as Ando and Hsing-Chun.Despite the stiff competition ahead, Solis believes that Ando can give the abovementioned favorites a run for their money.UC fought back, stretching their lead back to five, 64-59, but the Magis Eagles answered every shots they made which kept them within striking distance in the final period.Aside from targeting the supply reduction, Garcia said that the task force will also be working and focusing on demand reduction and the prosecution of cases.The 59kg women’s division is scheduled on December 8, 2022, (December 9, Manila time) according to Solis.However, Solis revealed that one of the most difficult challenges they’ve faced for this world championship was the 28-hour-long trip to Bogota from Manila.Not to be outfought, UC’s Mark Solonia quickly answered a triple to momentarily regain the lead, 72-70, but Jelomar Rota retaliated with a layup to tie the game anew at 72 all.“Taas kaayo ang byahe, 28 hours trip, nag stopover mi sa Bangkok unya sa Amsterdam na pud.“Dako kay tag pagsalig sa BJMP.
Pag abot namo diri pag petsa tres, naluya jud mi tanan.As valiant as they are, UC’s Johncel Borjal scored a three-pointer, pulling them close, 75-77, while Rota replied with a freethrow, 78-75.Naglisud mi ug adjust, pero karon naka recover nami.Nag sige nami ug practice karon para preparado nami sa competition,” added Solis.However, SHS-AdC’s championship pedigree stood out in crunch time when Ronald Dacalos scored a crucial layup that put his team ahead, 80-78, with 41 seconds remaining.Meanwhile, Ceniza will vie in group B of the men’s 61kg division./rcg ALSO READ:.Bahay split his free throws, giving SHS-AdC a three-point lead, 81-78, with 30 seconds remaining.
