PH out of 120 events in Kuala Lumpur SEA Games

The Philippines is not entered in at least 120 of 405 events to be contested in 38 sports of the 29th Southeast Asian Games next month in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Measurable sports like swimming bore the brunt of the rigid criteria imposed by sports officials as only eight athletes made the grade.

That means the country will only contend in 18 of 38 swimming events. The number can be further trimmed down when the schedule is released because two swimmers – Jasmine Alkhaldi and Nicole Justine Marie Olivia – are entered in more than six events

Two years ago, the Philippines sent 12 swimmers who won two silvers and 11 bronzes.

The country did not also field entries in diving where 13 gold medals are up for grabs.

Sports officials have required athletes to match the bronze medal effort of the 2015 Games to be eligible for the KL event.
