Rio de Janeiro: Filipino marathoner Mary Joy Tabal and golfer Miguel Tabuena could not add to the medals for Philippines at the 2016 Summer Olympics on Sunday.

Mary Joy Tabal could not accomplish the target of beating her personal best time of 2:43:31 after she timed 3:02:27 in women’s marathon.

The 27-year-old Cebu native felt nervous before her race, had a realistic target coming in and finished at 124th place in a field of 157 competitors. Only 133 marathoners finished the race, reported Rappler.

Jemima Sumgong won Kenya’s first ever gold in women’s marathon with a time of 2:24:04, pulling away in the final stretch of the race.

Separately, the Tabuena finished a round at the Rio Olympics under par – but it was too little too late, the report said.

Tabuena, 21, shot a 1-under 70 to improve his overall score to 7-over – or good for 53rd place, and 22 strokes off the leader Justin Rose of Great Britain, who is one shot over Henrik Stenson of Sweden at 15-under in the final round, and two better than American Matt Kuchar at time of this article’s publication.

Tabuena managed 5 birdies against 4 bogeys in the fourth round on Sunday.

Golf returned to the Olympics at the 2016 Games following a 112-year absence and is set to also be played at the 2020 Games in Tokyo, Rappler reported.
