Biography

A free-scoring player for Maniwasa AC in the Manila League, Bernardo was a mainstay of The Philippines national team for nearly a decade. As well as his two Olympic appearances in Rome and Munich he also played in both the Asian Basketball Championships and the Asian Games. He was a member of the team that became Asian champions in 1967 in Seoul.

When he retired from playing Bernardo embarked on a coaching career which was highlighted by the victory of his Crispa Redmanizers in the 1984 All-Filipino tournament. After the Redmanizers franchise folded he took up administrative posts with The Philippines Basketball Federation and the national amateur league. He suffered a serious heart attack in 2002 from which he never completely recovered from and was bed-ridden until his death six years later. Bernardo was an inductee in The Philippines national basketball hall of fame.
