  5. Mark Anthony Barriga (Boxing) – Barriga is the lone Filipino boxer competing in this year’s Olympics. The Light-Flywight from Davao will be one of the few Pinoy participants who has a fair shot of bagging an Olympic medal.  He reached the Round of 16 in last year’s World Boing Championships and he was eliminated by China’s Zou Shiming who eventually won the gold.
  6. Daniel Caluag (Cycling) – Filipino-American Calauag will be competing in the Men’s BMX event. He used to be one of top BMX athletes in the USA before deciding to don the Philippine colors.

  9. Jessie Khing Lacuna (Swimming) – 18 year old Lacuna will be competing in the 200m freestyle.  He was a silver medallist of the said event in the 2011 SEA Games. Luckily for him, Olympic record holder Michael Phelps will not compete in the said event.
