The 10-year old Guades, meanwhile, of the University of San Carlos (USC) grabbed third place in the pre-junior 12-13 years old category.
Both Cebuana gymnasts are expected to compete in the same age group in the upcoming international rhythmic gymnastics event.
They are not new in international gymnastics tournaments.
They are part of the team that vied in numerous online international gymnastics meets which paved the way for Cebu’s brand of rhythmic gymnastics to be showcased in the international scene.
According to Dela Pisa, both Guades and Labides joined her team in 2019. They might be relatively new to gymnastics, but they already showed a lot of potential according to their coach.
She expects both her gymnasts to perform well in the event as they continued to train privately despite the strict quarantine restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. /rcg
