Rubilen Amit and Jeff de Luna Win Philippine National Games!

Rubilen Amit GraphicCongratulations to world champion Rubilen Amit and Asian Games medalist Jeff De Luna for winning the women's and men's 9-ball gold medals, respectively, in the 2011 Philippine National Games held at the Gaisano Mall, Bacolod City! The 29-year-old Amit, aka Bingkay, beat national teammate Mary Ann Basas (11-7), while De Luna, aka The Bull, clipped Davao’s Delfin Tugado (11-8).

Highlights of Amit’s win include a comfortable lead at 9-2. However, Basas cleaned up the next five racks for a 9-7 count! But the first Filipina world champion was not to be denied as she ran out the final two racks of the tour! Awesome finish for both Bingkay and Mary Ann! Lest I forget, Amit’s other wins include victories over 11-year-old Cheska Centeno (9-4) and Flor Andal (9-5).

Indeed, this championship will serve Amit well as she sets her eyes on competing in the 2011 China 9-Ball Open in Shanghai in June 2011! And I kid you not!

Congratulations, Bingkay, Mary Ann, and Jeff! Mabuhay!

"Go for gold with The AnitoKid!"
