Actor and politician Richard Gomez looked back at the time when he represented the country for the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) back in 1995 in Chiang-Mai, Thailand as he competed along with the Philippine national fencing team.
In his Instagram post, Richard shared a photo of him with the PH fencing team with each of the members’ signatures where he wrote, “Goma ’95.”
Richard wrote in his post’s caption: “1995 Chiang-Mai SEAGAMES. National Fencing Team for Epee.”
Last 2015, Richard took home a gold medal after he competed against an opponent from Hong Kong at the first-ever Asian Master’s Fencing Championship.
He wrote in his Facebook post as he announced his victory: “Thank you, Lord! Thank you for the support of my teammates and coach Benny. Thank you for the continous support of my lovely wife [Lucy Torres Gomez].”
Richard currently serves the president of the Philippine Fencing Association and was spotted supporting the fencing team for this year’s SEA Games hosted by the Philippines.
