Raphael “Timmy” Chua ’02 took home the bronze medal in the men’s 100m breast finals of the 23rd Southeast Asian Games at the Trace Aquatics Center in Los Banos last November 30. Chua came out strong in the first 50 meters of the event while battling 2003 SEA Games silver winner Vorrawuti Aumpiwan of Thailand. But Vietnam’s Huu Viet Nguyen came surging from the eighth lane to take the gold. Nguyen, bronze winner in 2003, clocked 1:03.80 for the gold, followed by Aumpiwan who timed 1:04.01, while Chua came in at 1:04.35. Congratulations brod!
