Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 16) — Filipino wrestler Ronil Tubog ruled the men's freestyle 61kg category on Tuesday to deliver the Philippines' 55th gold at the 32nd Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Cambodia.

The 30-year-old veteran wrestler won 3-1 against Indonesia's Zainal Abidin.

This was the second gold medal of the Philippine wrestling team on Wednesday after Alvin Lobreguito dominated the men's freestyle 57kg category.
