A total of 472 athletes and 136 sports heads are joining the SEAGAMES 2015 in Singapore.

WATCH THEIR PERFORMANCE at Aquatics Diving 3-metre Finals (Men’s).

After watching this clip, I don’t exactly know what to feel but wishing the Philippine contingent to SEAGAMES more practice. I still respect their efforts to compete outside. Although Im sure they also made a good laugh of themselves after that “splash”, mockery is not necessary for the world to move on.

Malaysia got a total of 8 GOLD Medals & 3 Silver Medals while the host country Singapore got 3 Silver Medals & 4 Bronze Medals in diving alone.

Currently, Philippines ranked 6th overall. Below is the medal tally as of June 11, 2015 7am.
