The national team of the Philippine Badminton Association (PBAD) competed in the Cameroon International 2022 on Sunday at the Yaounde Sports Complex in Cameroon.
They brought home a lot of medals from the competition.
The final count for Smash Pilipinas’ medal haul was gold, silver, and bronze. The team finished with a record of 2-0-2.
“The results demonstrate what our athletes are capable of accomplishing with our help. According to PBAD Vice President Jude Turcuato, “We vow to attend more competitions in the future for them to receive more exposure and experience.”
Mixed doubles gold went to Alvin Morada and Yssa Leonardo of the Philippines, who defeated Sathish Kumar Karunakaran and Aadya Variyath of India in three sets (21-19, 18-21, 22-20).
After defeating India’s Dhruv Rawat and Chirag Sen in the men’s doubles competition with scores of 21-12 and 21-13, Morada and Christian Bernardo were crowned the winners of that competition as well.
After losing to Karunakaran and Variyath in three sets, 17-21, 21-16, 14-21, Bernado and Thea Pomar finished in third place overall to earn a bronze medal.
After suffering a 19-21, 14-21 defeat at the hands of eventual champions Srivedya Gurazada and Poorvisha S Ram, also of India, in the women’s doubles competition, the duo of Pomar and Leonardo earned Smash’s final podium result in the event.
Rosman Razak, the head coach of Smash Pilipinas, believes that the squad will benefit tremendously from playing back-to-back games, particularly moving forward in future games that may follow a schedule similar to the one they just played.
“The players are starting to get the feel of playing continually, and we hope that we can continue to progress and have more success in the future.”
The next competition for Smash will be the Benin International 2022, which began on Friday in Atlantique, Benin, and will continue through the weekend through Sunday.
