At long last, the Philippines finally got a gold medal in the 2014 Incheon Asian Games courtesy of Daniel Patrick Caluag, who topped the Cycling BMX event.

Caluag topped the seeding race and swept Heats 1 to 3 in a strong performance to finally give the Philippines its much-awaited gold medal.

His brother Christopher John Caluag was on pace to win a bronze medal after Heat 2 but he struggled in the final race to finish fourth overall.
