ANGELES, PAMPANGA. World-renowned Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) superstar and
BFC Lab Athlete, Mark “Mugen” Striegl, achieved probably one of his life goals by
winning the Philippines a gold medal during the 30 th Southeast Asian Games Sambo
Competition, held at the Angeles University Foundation Gymnasium, in his very own
home province of Pampanga.
Sambo is a martial arts and combat sport of Soviet origin. The word itself means self-
defense without the use of weapons.
Mark, who spent time growing up in Pampanga—a province north of Manila, won favor
by defeating Singapore athlete, Singh Jaswant, in an undeniably one-side win, 8-0; for
the 74 kilogram category. His world-class skills enabled him to capture a gold medal,
much to the delight of the crowd and his BFC Lab family.
For several years now, Mark has been very active in the many fitness activities of BFC
Laboratories, by taking part in the company’s numerous Fitness Conventions that
encouraged sports and regular physical activity. He has likewise touted the benefits of
weight management and sports supplementation through BFC’s very own weight and
sports supplements like Cosmo Body and the different Euphoriamaxx brands of amino
acids (L-Arginine, Creatine, BCAA and Glutamine).
Says BFC Managing Director and Founder Nino Bautista, “We are very proud of Mark
for winning a gold medal in the 30 th Southeast Asian Games in honor of the Philippines.
As an athlete he is the very personification of determination and consistency when
preparing for the achievement of his goals, and we hope that though our very own way,
we have contributed a little in his achievement—he deserves it.”
Co-Managing Director and Founder John Redentor Gatus, also has his take on Mark’s
achievement. “There’s no doubt that he is a very skillful athlete. But more than that, he
has truly become an icon in local sports and will continue to serve as an inspiration to
his numerous fans and followers. Because of this, it’s safe to say that our company,
BFC Laboratories; will further strengthen our association with this world-class athlete
and spread his message of health and fitness throughout the country.”
