While the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in Vietnam has officially closed with the Philippines finishing 4th place overall with 52 gold medals won, the praise of medalists on the local level continued as the City Government of Las Piñas congratulated Jocel Lyn Ortiz Ninobla for winning the gold medal, the Manila Bulletin reported (quoting Mayor Imelda Aguilar). Specifically speaking, Ninobla topped the women’s individual poomsae during the SEA Games.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…
The Las Piñas government congratulated a daughter of the city, Jocel Lyn Ortiz Ninobla, for winning the gold medal in the individual female poomsae at the South East Asian (SEA) Games held in Vietnam.
Mayor Imelda Aguilar expressed pride in Ninobla, a resident of Talon Dos and a true Las Piñero, for winning the gold medal and giving pride to the city.
Aguilar said Ninobla also won a gold medal in the same category in the 2019 SEA Games.
The mayor said Ninobla won silver award in the 2018 World Championship in Taipei, a gold medal in the 2019 SEA Games in Manila, a gold medal in the 2021 World Daedo Champs, and a silver award in the 2021 Asian Championship held in Lebanon.
Aguilar said Ninobla also won a bronze medal in the 2021 World Taekwondo Online championship, a gold medal in the 2021 World Mastership championship, a bronze medal in the Asian Taekwondo Online championship, a silver award in the 2021 and 2022 World Taekwondo Poomsae challenge, and the latest gold medal in the female poomsae at the SEA games in Vietnam.
Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Las Piñas City resident, how do you feel about a fellow local resident like Ninobla winning the SEA Games gold in her sport? Does Ninobla’s achievement inspire you to get into sports someday? Do you believe that there could be more Las Piñas residents among the many Philippine team athletes who won medals in the recent SEA Games?
