PH ends e-sports campaign with Tekken 7 silver, bronze


PHILIPPINE bet Alexendre Laverez settled for a silver medal in the Southeast Asian Games’ Tekken 7 contest, the final event of the e-sports competitio­ns Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Sibol’s Lavarez faltered against Nopparut Hempamorn of Thailand, 3-2, to lose his chance at a gold that could’ve bookended Caviar Acampado’s performanc­e earlier in the day.

The Filipino managed to regain his bearings just in time to knot the affair at Game 4, but he barely had any answers in Hempamorn’s near-perfect showing in the period that mattered most.

Andreij Albar, the other Sibol bet in the contest, salvaged a bronze after also bowing to the Thai in the upper bracket final. The two Filipinos then locked horns for the right to face Hempamorn in the Final.

The victory put the hosts’ medal tally in the inaugural event to five medals including golds coming from Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, DoTA II, and StarCraft II. –
