Another feather on the Philippines cap, and for the administration of President Duterte.
Fresh from being recognized by honorary life vice-president of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) Wei Jizhong, that the country could bid for the 2030 Asian Games, another unexpected accolade is given to the country.


"The opening ceremony, perhaps, is unique at the biggest indoor arena in the world. We saw the enthusiasm of all the athletes, you allowed all the athletes to walk in because in other Games they limit. The parade is for the honor of the athletes,” Wei said.
