Filipino athletes showed their grit during Day 1 and Day 2 of the 30th Southeast Asian Games — surpassing the Philippines’ medal haul in the 2017 SEA Games on just the second day of competitions, according to the Philippine Sports Commission.
In the 2017 SEA Games hosted by Malaysia, the Philippines landed on sixth place – the country's worst overall performance in 18 years – with 23 gold, 33 silver, and 64 bronze medals or a total of 120.
Here’s the medal tally as of last night from the official Facebook page of the 2019 SEA Games.
