Josephine Medina caps PH stint with table-tennis gold — ASEAN Para Games”

Although the team failed to reach its target of 27 gold medals, chef de mission Ral Rosario said its current tally should still be a source of pride.

The Vietnamese delegation of 142 athletes with disability vied for medals in eight events, including swimming, track-and-field, weightlifting, chess, badminton, boccia, football for the visually-impaired and table tennis.

In 2015, the Philippine para athletes listed 16 golds, 17 silvers, and 26 bronzes - a few medals short of this year's output.

He achieved that earlier this week, after helping to clinch a bronze medal on Tuesday in the men's team class T1-3 round robin contest.

"I am happy that most of our debutants medaled", said chairman of Singapore National Paralympic Council and president of SDSC Kevin Wong. This reflects the healthy growth of disability sports in Singapore.

"It has been our aim to provide more opportunities for our athletes to gain more experience by fielding them at major games like the ASEAN Para Games, and they have done well", he added.

If Jason Chee can do it, you certainly have no excuse to be the best person you can be.
