Senator Bong Go said Gilas Pilipinas’ “revenge win” in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games is going to be an impetus when the country embarks on the Fiba World Cup slated later here this year.

“Congratulations sa pagkapanalo ng Gilas Pilipinas na nakasungkit ng gintong medalya sa men’s basketball competition nitong Martes. Talagang masarap sa pakiramdam na nakabawi tayo sa Indonesia, nakabawi pa tayo sa Cambodia. Isa itong morale booster para sa ating koponan na sasabak rin sa FIBA World Cup ngayong taon,” he said.

Go, chair of the Senate Committee on Sports, also expressed his admiration for all the athletes who competed in the biennial games and brought home 58 gold medals, 86 silvers, and 116 bronzes.

The Philippines finished fifth overall.

“Kaya naman nakaka-proud bilang Pilipino ang mga tagumpay na nakamit ng Gilas at ng iba pang mga Pilipinong atletang sumabak sa SEA Games. Maipagmamalaki natin ang kanilang naging dedikasyon, disiplina at angking talento para maipakita sa buong mundo ang kanilang husay at ang pusong Pilipino na lumalaban hanggang dulo. Ang kanilang panalo ay panalo rin ng ating bansa at ng bawat Pilipino,” he said.
