-

Blackwater, Ever Bilena Cos­met­ics’ per­sonal groom­ing line, raised a toast to Filipino ath­letes be­fore they com­peted at the Philip­pines-hosted 30th South­east Asian Games. The brand pre­sented its ben­e­fi­cia­ries dur­ing a press con­fer­ence at the Sulo Riviera Ho­tel in Que­zon City. Ever Bilena Cos­met­ics Inc. pres­i­dent and CEO Dio­celdo Sy said, “I am a sports­man and it makes me happy when I see Filipino ath­letes suc­ceed in the in­ter­na­tional arena. That’s why we are giv­ing our sup­port to in­de­pen­dent ath­letes be­cause they are go­ing to com­pete in the SEA Games prac­ti­cally on their own. I know that th­ese ath­letes have worked so hard for so many years to bring pride to our nation and, in one way or an­other, we would like to help them and be a part of their suc­cess.”

Among the ath­letes that Blackwater sup­ported was 25-year-old Lon­don 2012 and Rio de Janiero 2016 Olympics swim­mer Jas­mine Paler Alkhaldi, who de­liv­ered a sil­ver medal for Women’s 4x100me­ter med­ley re­lay cat­e­gory and sev­eral bronze medals in­clud­ing Women’s 4x200-me­ter Freestyle re­lay, Women’s 100-me­ter Back­stroke and Women’s 100-me­ter Freestyle at the 30th SEA Games.
