Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes considers retirement, off to therapy 

Pool legend Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes settled for bronze on his latest bid in the Southeast Asian Games in the 1-cushion carom yesterday.

Reyes fell short of winning the gold from Vietnamese Dinh Nai Ngo, 100-14.

When asked if he would still play in the next SEA Games. Reyes said that remains to be seen.

“Di ko alam kung may laro pa ako o wala.Hindi ko alam kung magre-retire ako o hindi, pero siguro malapit na,” he said.

Reyes said that a lot of things have changed unlike his prime years when he was a four-time 8 ball champion.

“Mahirap din. Pabago-bago na tira ko. Hindi na pagaling, pawala na,” he added.

“Siguro kung tira , at ’yung tira ko noong araw, kaya ko siya. Baka lamang pa ako. Kailangan tumatakada rin ako ng mga 20, kaya ko naman dati. Kaya lang ngayon hanggang 2 na lang ako,” he added.

Reyes added that he would continue his therapy after the game.
