PHNOM PENH: The Philippines claimed its 28th gold medal from javelin thrower Andrei Kuizon in the 12th Asean Para Games at the Morodok Techo National Stadium here on Thursday, June 8, to match its gold medal haul from last year in Surakarta, Indonesia.

Kuizon, a 22-year-old Pampanga native who was plucked out of the wheelchair basketball team, took the mint after organizers decided to separate the winners of his F54 class from the F34.
