3 Fil-Heritage Tracksters with no Passport
3 Fil-Heritage Athletes Lauren Hofman, Angel Frank, and Danae Manibog. All failed to secure passports. As of the March 10 Entry by name extension deadline. Set by the SEA Games Organizing Committee.
This was verified by PATAFA Sec Gen Edward Kho in an on-air interview with News Radyo Pilipinas host Judith Caringal. In the SEA Games entry list presented by Kho. The three Female athletes had asterisks next to their names. And light brown highlights to indicate they have not yet secured Philippine Passports. Kho also stated the PATAFA is trying to get them passports still. But he is unsure as to whether the SEA Games organizers will accept their entries as it’s already 2.5 weeks before SEA Games start.
Due to not having Philippine Passports. This means they are not eligible for National Rankings, SEA Rankings, All Time lists, or Philippine National Records set while they do not have a valid Philippine Passport.
The three women competed at the Philippine National Open March 22-26 in Iligan City.
