Actor-turned-mayor Richard Gomez waxed nostalgic of his glory days as a fencing athlete during the Southeast Asian Games in Chiang-Mai, Thailand in 1995.

In line with its 30th staging happening now in the Philippines, Gomez paid tribute to his former team with two photos on his Instagram today, Dec. 2. Gomez was one of the representatives of the Philippine national fencing team for the 18th SEA Games.


“National Fencing Team for Epee,” Gomez said.

The memorabilia photo had some of his teammate’s signatures, and showed a young Gomez posing with his team while holding his épée. He even signed the photo with “Goma ’95.”
