As the Philippines continues to dominate the 30th South East Asian (SEA) Games, more and more Filipino athletes are feeling empowered to win and bring home the gold, including Kevin Jeffrey Pascua who even set world, Asian, and Southeast Asian records for the obstacle course race.
Pascua set the record for the men’s 100m x 10 event in the 2019 SEA Games with a record-breaking time of 29.92 seconds. His gold medal finish strengthened the Philippines’ hold of the obstacle course race with four gold, one silver, and one bronze medal.
Malaysia’s Modh Redha Rozlan came in second, while fellow Filipino and teammate Mark Julius Rodelas came in third.
This year’s SEA Games is the biggest one in the history of the competition yet with 56 sports and more than 500 events. The obstacle course race made its debut as an official sport in the SEA Games this year.
