MANILA -- Andrea Robles made waves recently after winning the Macau Indoor Archery Open.
The 21-year-old Robles pulled off a huge shocker against pre-tournament favorite Sarah Prieels of Belgium in the semifinals before downing Paige Pearce of the United States in the final to win the gold.
Robles, who just graduated from Ateneo this year, also defeated China's Xu Lumeng and Australia's Natalie Duncan before her huge victories against Prieels and Pearce.
"Incredibly grateful to everyone who have always been there to support me, most especially my parents.
“This is for you," said Robles, who just returned home on Monday, in her Facebook account.
The championship in Macau gave her a huge boost ahead of her stint in the upcoming Southeast Asian Games the Philippines is hosting from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11 this year. (PNA)
