Description

The Philippine Amateur Athletic Federation was formed in January 1911 when the country was still under American occupation. This organisation, which later became the National Olympic Committee, was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1929. The Philippines first competed at the Olympic Games in 1924, and has since missed only the 1980 Moscow Olympics. The Philippines has competed at the Olympic Winter Games of 1972, 1988, 1992, and 2014. The Philippines has won nine Olympic medals in boxing, swimming, and track & field athletics. The country has not yet won a gold medal, and is currently (2012) the nation with the most medals without an Olympic title. However, Arianne Cerdeña won the women’s bowling event in that exhibition sport at the 1988 Olympics and Willy Wang won the men’s Wushu Nanquan & Nangun demonstration event at the 2008 Games. Both silver medals were won in boxing by Anthony Villanueva in the 1964 featherweight class as well as by Mansueto Velasco in the 1996 light-flyweight class.
