Warrior Weightlifters Win Four Medals in First 2017 Tune-Up Game


The UE Red Warriors Weightlifting Team brought home four medals—two silvers and two bronze medals—from their first tune-up game of the year, the HD Weightlifting Open Championships on July 8 and 9, 2017, at the Meralco Fitness Center in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

The competition was organized by 2016 Rio Olympics silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz (thus the “HD”) and features competing weightlifters from the Philippines, Canada, Greece, Guam and Australia.

Winning a silver medal each in UE’s name were John Kevin Padullo (85-kilogram category) and the team’s Head Coach, Prof. Edmundo Jose Cardano (+105 kg.), while Daryl Banania (58 kg.) and John Rick Marteja (69 kg.) received a bronze medal apiece. Also joining the competition were UE students Joshua Banania (62 kg) and Herbert Robinson Orpilla (77 kg), who both placed 4th in their respective categories; Jean Pagalan (53 kg.) and Eriel Cardano (63 kg.) who both placed 5th; and Emilio Gaboy (85 kg.) and Richard Debuque (77 kg.), who placed 7th.

Congratulations, Warrior Weightlifters!
