Filipino American Will Compete in Winter Olympics

Asian Journal, Joseph Pimentel Posted: Feb 04, 2010

There will be a Filipino participating in the 21st Winter Olympics. No one (as of press time) will represent the Philippines in the upcoming Winter Olympics. But there is a Filipino American representing the United States.

Fil-Am Amanda Evora and pairs figure skating partner Mark Ladwig qualified for the Winter Olympic games after placing second at the U.S. Championships in Washington earlier this month, earning them the right to represent the United States in the pairs figure skating event in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC in February. Evora was born in New York City and resides in Bradenton, Fla.
