In Photos: The Filipino Athletes Who Won Gold At The 2019 SEA Games

When the Philippines promised to reclaim its place as the overall champ at the regional athletic competition, they delivered—and with a historic 149 golds, no less!

All 149 medals were earned with sweat, tears, and more. 

The Filipino athletes who competed at the recently concluded 2019 SEA Games lived up to the competition's slogan "We Win As One," with many of those who made it to the podium dedicating their wins to their country, their families, and to the teams and supporters who cheered for them every step of the way.

All in all, gold medalists not only made the Philippines the country to come home with the most golds, but also helped beat our own record; in 2005, when the Philippines last hosted the SEA Games, Filipino athletes rounded up the competition with 113 golds. 

To get to know the faces behind the medals, we rounded up a gallery of the athletes who received top honors at the regional competition and brought pride not only to themselves, but to the Philippines, too.
