Mcling is soaring high in Cambodia. 

Falcon track and field athlete King James Reyes has turned out spectacular performances in the 12th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Para-games in Cambodia, producing two silvers and a gold medal in three separate para-athletics events. 

Reyes bagged the silver medal in the Men’s 5000m. T46 run. He clocked in an 18:50 final for the 5000m., a second away from his Malaysian foe who bagged the gold medal.  

Mcling, as he is fondly called, also registered another silver finish in the Men’s 1500m. T46 event. 

He then secured the top spot for the Philippines in the Men’s 800m. T46 run for the country’s 13th gold medal in the games.
