Despite the glaring failures of the SEA Games organizers, we’re still hella proud of our competing athletes.

These young bloods are out to join the ranks of world greats like Efren “Bata” Reyes and Paeng Nepomuceno and rep our country. Seeing as they’re fresh from the throes of UAAP season, we’re betting that these students are all revved up and hungry to win.
