PH bags 3 medals on first day of World Robot Games in Singapore


 SINGAPORE—The Philippines won 3 medals on the first day of the World Robot Games (WRG) in Singapore on Friday. 

Joseph Dulay, an 18-year-old Grade 12 student from the Divine Word Academy of Dagupan won gold in the “sumobot” 1-kilogram division by beating an entry from Indonesia. 

Sumobots are robots that compete one-on-one by trying to push each other off a circular “ring” similar to sumo wrestling.

Madelle Diez, a 14-year-old Grade 8 student from Senator Renato Compañero Cayetano Memorial Science and Technology High School, won silver in the sumobot 1-kilogram family edition.

Samuel Tabernero, an 11-year-old Grade 6 from the Kapt. Eddie T. Reyes Integrated School, bagged a bronze medal in the 5-kilogram remote-controlled sumobot junior division. 

Thai and Chinese students dominated the first day of the WRG, which featured games such as firefighting, line-tracing, and sumo wrestling in different weight classes. 

Members of the Philippine delegation said they're thankful for the wins but hope that the country does better on Saturday.

The second day of the WRG will feature games such as search and rescue, battle ballz or robot soccer, and legged editions of the sumo and line-tracing contests. 

One hundred twenty-five students from 21 schools in the Philippines are competing in the WRG. Last year, the country bagged 47 medals in the games held in Bandung, Indonesia.
