ZAMBOANGA CITY – Three Zamboangueño athletes who are part of the Philippine contingent seeing action in the 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games each bagged bronze medals in their respective sports events.

Dr. Cecilia Atilano, city sports development officer, said Tuesday Clemente Tabugara, Jefferson Rhey Loon, and Kristine Paraon won bronze medals in wushu, pencak silat, and rowing competitions,  respectively.

The three are among the 23 Zamboangueño athletes participating in the ongoing SEA Games.
