Pinoy pride was alive and strong in the first Flair Xtreme Challenge international flairtending competition recently in Nakhon Phanom, Thailand as Filipino flairtender John Anthony Caballes bagged the first runner-up trophy.
Caballes, also the reigning flairtending champion of GSM Blueniversity, the longest-running and most prestigious flairtending program in the Philippines, was the lone Filipino representative in the regional tilt.
He wowed judges and audiences by showcasing his mastery of flairtending with moves such as the backflip, the bottle stall, the tomahawk swipe thru, the elbow bump, shadow pass, and snake arms, among others.
Before representing the Philippines in the contest, the Hotel Management student from the Lyceum of the Philippines University was already winning recognition at various local bar flairtending competitions.
Caballes then went through extensive training under the GSM Blueniversity program of Ginebra San Miguel Inc., which aims to enhance the skills of students and develop the potential of flairtending talents across the country.
