Filipino divers score ZERO points at 2015 Southeast Asian Games!

Zero points. That is what Filipino divers John Elmerson Fabriga and John David Pahoyo got after botched dives today during this year’s Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) in Singapore. Fabriga who went first landed on his back and Pahoyo, who followed, awkwardly landed feet first. Both seemingly failing to attain enough altitude in their launches off the board.

Malaysia won the gold medal in that event while Indonesia and Singapore placed second and third respectively. Both Filipino divers ranking 7th and 8th.

A post (visible to the public at the time of this writing) on Pahoyo’s Facebook profile provided some hints as to how much preparation some Filipino athletes may have had before joining the games. The following excerpt refers to a separate event where Pahoyo reveals preparation took all of four days…

Yey! I’m so proud of us pakner John Fabriga, we really did our best despite of we just practiced this synchro dives for just 4 days, even though we failed to win, but atleast we did overcame what we once knew was out limit, and that makes us a champion…

Watch footage of the two Filipino divers…

I laughed while watching the video. Kung makatalon, akala mo maliligo lang sa Pasig River.

Anyways, I will not be surprised kung may mga sisigaw na naman diyan na dinaya ang mga Pinoy athletes na ito

korek! So asan na yung ‘proud to be pinoy jan?’

Grimwald

We need Pinoy pride. We have to support our athletes and encourage them to try harder, to train harder and never give up. What we lack in this country is pride and patriotism. That’s why China thinks they can bully us. No one is willing to fight for this country. Be proud to be a Filipino. Let’s show the world that we are more than internet bashers and trolls. Philippines is a great country!

And no wonder why pride is one of the 7 deadly sins and a lot of failipinos like you are katolibans. Filipinos don’t need too much pride. They need humility. You can’t be proud of your obvious mistakes you moron.

No, shame on you benigno and all bashers of Filipino athletes. Did you even watch the whole dive competition? Why not post the other decent dives of the same divers? Did you know that even the prized divers of other countries made cringe worthy dives as well?

Ikaw ang may zero points. Instead of praising the positive you are quick to point out the negatives. Before you look outside yourself, start with the inside. Pareho tayong Pilipino lahat. Wag tayo maging alimasag sa kapwa Pilipino. Peace brother.

Playing the victim card much apologist failipino? At anong positive ang sinasabi mo diyan bobong pinoy praydist? Kita mo na ngang nakakahiya ang performance ng mga divers na iyan ipagtanggol mo pa. And about those other prized divers you’re excusing about, they still performed very well unlike the abomination of your “kababayan”. And there you go with that loser excuse dimwit. Crab mentality is for CRAB PEOPLE. Taste like crab walk like people. They have a tough shell on the outside but softies on the inside resulting to emotional outbursts rather than rational thinking so it actually applies to failipinos… Read more »

I cant believe Im reading this. They may have not performed well for this competition. So what? Kahihiyan ng Pilipinas? ganyan naman karamihan sa atin, quick to throw off their nationality if something like this happens. Pero kapag Filipino na mayroong magandang achievement, makahashtag ng #proudtobepinoy wagas. Well now, these poor athletes fought for us even if they lack the preparation. Sa tingin niyo ba, hindi nila naisip na hindi sapat ang time na iyon for training? Malamang, sa lahat ng unang makakaisip, sila iyon. And yet, they chose to fight and represent our country. 4 days training, sa tingin… Read more »

Allow me to use your own words….

Bakit ka naman papayag to be

“put in a situation where you need to compete without proper training and preparation just because the country needs a representative”

Rather not compete cz of lack of preparation, than compete and maging bokya!

Nakakahiya sa bansang dinadala mo. Kung alam rin lang palang nilang papalpak sila cz 4 days lang nag practice, eh baka deserve nila talaga yang sinapit nila. Napakababa naman yata ng measurement of success nila.

Two simple sentences doesn’t make you any more proficient in english than pey is, SB20.

At dun sa Domo, you dare call other failipinos? Nagtagalog ka pa, eh generalized yang term na ginamit mo, so doesn’t that make you part of who regard to as ”talunan?”

Husgahan kaya namin yang nanay mo na ultra fail ang pagkakaconceive sa isang katulad mong pulos kayabangan at pagkajudgemental ang pinaiiral? Pwe. Kung kinahihiya mo ang lahi mo, feel free to detach yourself from the rest of us, hindi ka isang kawalan. Pabor pa sa’min kamo.

@SB20: Oh look a grammar nazi.
@ambivert: So ibig sabihin pala proud ka na ganyan ang performance ng mga divers na iyan? Are you really that dense for being stuck in mediocrity you failipino? Gagawa ka pa ng walang kwentang scenario. Just admit the fact that you are an asshurt because you failipinos hate to be criticized. And no, we realists are not the ones smothering this country. You are and the rest of your kind.

The real shame is our country doesn’t really have much support for our athletes unless they’re already very popular and heavily sponsored like Pacquiao, Azkals, etc.

Clearly these athletes did not have access to good training facilities.

tama ka jan . d kasi pinansin ung ibang sports sa atin . pag d sikat. unless ko mag cha champion sila . don lang sila makakatanggap ng papuri at pansin. pero habang sila nag eensayo wala man lang sumusuporta sa kanila . kumakamusta sa kanila kung okay ba ang pang eensayo nila . kung nakukuha ba nila ang lahat ng pangangailangan nila para maging champion

Yeah right and yet other Filipino athletes in that sports event won a gold WITHOUT government support. Whether it’s supported by the government or not, it’s the athlete’s skill that matters to achieve his/her goals stupid.

The excuse was that they only practiced for four days. Only four days. Look that up. More seasoned divers carefully practice this for weeks before the event.

CHRIS

Philippine should sue these athletes instead of giving us pride or proudness they (trainers/athletes) shame our country and they just wasted our taxes because of their unprofessional attitude, incompetence and dedication to given task to them. These people must learned their lesson…we should not tolerate these kind of athletes….

James B.P

Di mo kasi alam brad na kulang ang facilities naten to train divers. Bilangin mo ang number ng PUBLIC olympic sized pools mas madami pa ang daliri mo sa kanang kamay. Madami sa mga facility ay private. It is the governments fault na hindi nila i-niscreen ng maayos yung mga participating athletes. You should be sued for your ignorance. Ambobo mo eh.

Big Bang Stewie

My friend, if you take into consideration that most of the Filipino athletes who garnered medals were in the field of boxing, softball and billiards you’d surely realize that the facilities they require are easily accessible here in the Philippines. All you’d need are boxing rings, open fields, and pool halls needing minimal or no government funding at all to be built. How many accessible diving pools do we have here? A regular swimming pool would not suffice as they are designed for swimming and not for platform diving. Building and maintaining a diving pool costs much more than a… Read more »

Actually, you should care about your grammar. You made an effort to criticize someone in English. Might as well do it correctly. Otherwise, you’re the one who sounds like a moron. Now if you don’t want to be criticized, stay off the fucking internet.

Seryoso naman sila brader. Palibhasa di ka pa nagiging national athlete kaya di mo alam kung anong pakiramdam ng talo kayo kasi hindi pala regulated yung ginagamit nio na facilities. Kita naman na ineexpect pa nila na may isa pang flip after they hit the water, pero ayun na nga. Comedy show.

Well to those two who tried but failed, better luck next time and there better be more practices instead of just trying to wing it. There’s no take two in competitions like these. Listening to the audible, looks like they were quite nervous going into the event but they should have at least known better what to do. Indeed, they showed up, they represented but they failed. I hope they learned a valuable lesson from this one. 4 days isn’t enough to perfect something like what they tried to do. This isn’t the Intramurals or the Inter-barangay, surely they don’t… Read more »

Playing the victim card much positive pushing pinoy praydist? We already watched the whole competition which is short and it’s obvious that their performance is humiliating. And no, wag mo nang pilitin pang ipasok iyang nakakabobong pinoy prayd mo inutil. pinoy nga naman oo puro yabang na magaling sila pero kulelat naman talaga. No wonder why you bitch that we can defeat china when in fact we always ask allied countries some help against china because we can’t actually defend ourselves. So much for our independence.

Big Bang Stewie

I agree. It’s quite unfair to their part. They seem to have done well with their synchronized dives.

https://www.facebook.com/david.pahoyo/videos/1049742108384276/

Filipinos tend to sensationalize failures out of mediocre performances. Always wanting to nitpick at things worth blaming.

For all we know, these athletes had small allowances, not much government support and no access to world class diving facitilies.
What else can we expect.

Grimwald

Oh dear. The diver looked almost like me when I’m diving. Of course, I look much more “eldritch” than that but close enough I suppose.

And seriously they trained for only 4 days? It’s like when Atari demanded their developer to make an ET game for just 5 1/2 weeks instead of the typical 6-8 months in time for Christmas and the end result is the worst game ever made that a lot of unsold copies are dumped in Alamogordo.

I would at least TRY to think of one ahead of time. I don’t know if you’re the same Domo, but I try to learn from my mistakes. Time and time again, you foul up when you belittle competitions. Remember, it’s a “competition”. That means, even if you’re talented, your opponents will have the same amount of talent you do or even more so. I’ve been there, sir and I’ve done something very similar to what these people did and it was NOT pretty. At all. So yes, if I was in their shoes with the same kind of situation.… Read more »

Oh look nandito na naman ang payasong mangongontra na ito with his victim mentality. Hindi nga madali and yet pinilit pa rin nila kahit na hindi sila handa. They’re too weak for that sports? Simple: they better do some other goals that they think they’re very passionate about it instead.

No need to be ashamed. Wala naman kayong inapakan o sinaktan na tao. You just simply missed. So what? Failures happen all the time. It’s a pre-requisite of success! Don’t be disheartened by our fellow Filipinos who are bashing and bullying you. They felt ashamed because they think they’re worthy to be proud by the successes of others and not by their own. When they see successes by other Filipinos they post it to say that they’re proud to be pinoys. When failures by other Filipinos happen, they are ashamed. The reason is for them to be able to live… Read more »
