Palaro 2017: Taekwondo, Villamor produces most of CAR’s golds

Taekwondo was this year’s major sport producer of gold medals and Archery’s Charmaine Angela B. Villamor was the athlete with most medals as the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) contingent improved its ninth place finish last year to fourth place in a close battle that had to be decided on the silver and bronze counts.
