(CNN Philippines, August 30) — Kiyomi Watanabe bagged the first silver medal for the Philippines in the 2018 Asian Games.

Watanabe fell short against Japan's Nami Nabekura, 10-0, in the women's -63 kilogram judo final Thursday at the Jakarta Convention Center.

This is also the first judo medal by a Filipino since the sport was included in the regional sports meet in 1986.

The country now has 18 medals in the Asian Games.
