    Philippines Rio 2016 Olympics

    Thirteen Filipino athletes in 8 sports events will try their best to at least end our 20-year medal drought.

    Lightflyweight boxer Onyok Velasco brought home the silver from the 1996 Atlanta Games and that gasp was the last in a harvest of nine medals dating back to 1928 when swimmer Teofilo Yldefonso claimed the bronze in the 200-meter breaststroke in Amsterdam.

    Athletics, boxing and swimming gave the Philippines its nine medals (two silver and seven bronze) over the 20 times it has participated in the Olympic Games. The Philippines did not attend the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of its partial support to the US-led boycott.
