15 year old Chezka Centeno beat fellow Filipina Rubilen Amit to secure SEA Games Gold in the Women’s 9 Ball division.
Centeno, who comes from Zamboanga City, started well against her vastly experienced opponent in the final; Amit is a two time World 10 Ball Champion and multiple Gold medallist winner in previous Games. She took the opening three racks, and nurtured that advantage to the finishing post.
Centeno had survived a 2-5 deficit in her semi-final clash with Thailand’s Siraphat Chitchomnart, to set up a meeting with her self confessed idol.
Philippines clean swept all three disciplines of 9 Ball throughout this years Games.
