Fourth SEA Games gold is 'most special' for Kiefer

KUALA LUMPUR — Kiefer Ravena was not about to let anyone forget exactly what he achieved on Saturday evening by helping Gilas Pilipinas crush Indonesia, 94-55, in the gold medal game of the 29th Southeast Asian Games at the MABA Stadium here.

After receiving his gold medal and singing the national anthem, Ravena slowly and methodically pulled out three more gold medals that he had carefully tucked into his jersey, and one by one, hung them around his neck.

Ravena on Saturday set a new record for most basketball gold medals in the SEA Games, breaking a record that he shared with Rommel Adducul. Now 23, Ravena first represented the Philippines in the biennial tournament when he was only 18 years old.

"It gets more special and special and special," said Ravena, who only had seven points in the game but still managed to get a highlight-reel worthy step-back three-pointer towards the end of the contest.

"Fourth SEA Games, fourth gold medal, and it just gets better and better and better," he added. "There are no words, especially if you win together as a team, and play for the national team."
