PHILIPPINES PROTESTS ZERO SCORES FOR ITS DIVERS AT SOUTHEAST ASIAN GAMES IN SINGAPORE

SINGAPORE (The Adobo Chronicles) – Officials of the Philippine delegation to the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in Singapore filed a formal protest today, contesting the zero scores the judges gave to two of its diving athletes.

The Filipino divers failed to  complete their rotations during their dive. One landed flat on his back and the other went into the pool, feet first.

“It is a matter of pride and fairness ” the officials contended. “We aren’t asking for a medal. All we are asking is that the zero scores be reversed to at least recognize the degree of difficulty with which our young athletes performed in the competition.”

The officials also said that their divers broke all existing world records with a feat no athlete has ever attempted before.
