Youthful sports climbing bet Gerald Verosil cherished his first tour of duty for the tricolors despite bombing out of the medal race.
PALEMBANG --- Gerald Verosil wound up in 19th place overall after finishing 18th in bouldering in the 18th Asian Games on Sunday at the Jakabaring Sports City sport climbing arena.
The Singapore-based Verosil, only 17, collected 270 points from bouldering and together with his less spectacular performance in speed climbing earlier, totaled 5,670 points to bomb out of a podium finish.
But the Manila-born climber expressed satisfaction over his performance in the 45-nation Games and vowed to do better next time.
“To represent my homeland here in Asian Games is really an honor for me,” he said.
