Iris Ranola is Double Gold Medalist in 26th Southeast Asian Games!

Iris Ranola GraphicCongratulations to Filipina pool player Iris Ranola, the first double gold medalist for Team Pilipinas at the 26th Southeast Asian Games!

The 26-year-old Ranola won 7-2 against her teammate, World 10-Ball Champion Rubilen Amit, in the women’s 9-ball billiards event. She earlier won the coveted gold in the women’s 8-ball event held at the Opih Convention Hall in Jakabaring.

For those not in the know, Ranola’s had a spell of dehydration, which caused her to faint in her hotel room last week. And I kid you not!

Ranola’s win translates to another Php100,000 in government-sponsored incentive. She plans to use her winnings for her father, who is currently stricken with cancer of the throat.

Congratulations Rubilen and Iris! An all-Filipino finals is always a treat for us all! We are very proud of you! Mabuhay!

"It's winning time with The AnitoKid!"
