Want to see how your favorite Filipino athletes train for their SEA Games 2023 journey? Interested to know what their diet is like? Or maybe you just want to get to know more about them?
TikTok is bringing sports fans a glimpse of the SEA Games journey and behind-the-scenes action of their favorite Filipino athletes. As the Premium Sponsor of the 32nd SEA Games, TikTok allows athletes and their supporters to express themselves freely and creatively to further ignite their passions.
Get to know some of the Filipino athletes vying for top honors in the SEA Games by following their official TikTok accounts.
Just a few days after the 2023 SEA Games opening, Jamie Christine Lim already made the headlines after winning gold in Karate. This is Lim’s second SEA Games gold medal, following her first in 2019. She is also an Asian Championships 2021 Silver Medalist.
Though she’s no doubt one fierce fighter, the daughter of retired PBA player Samboy Lim is a charmer on TikTok. Her cute dance moves and inspiring workout videos delight her more than 296,000 TikTok followers. But wait, there’s more—this charming karate girl is also a summa cum laude graduate and wellness advocate.
Another TikTok darling is Filipino Wushu sensation Agatha Wong. This multiple SEA Games champion is once again determined to achieve gold for the Philippines through her impressive routines. Wong secured the gold medal for the taijiquan event at the 2017 and 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
While this pretty Wushu athlete who’s currently in med school surely has a hectic schedule, she still has time to update supporters about her personal journey by posting regularly on her TikTok account—from sharing videos of how she stays fit to answering questions from fans.
Filipinos are looking forward to another thrilling performance from Olympics silver medalist Nesthy Petecio. Set to compete in the 57kg action of the women’s boxing competition of the 32nd SEA Games, Petecio has another opportunity to make her fellow Filipinos proud through sports.
As everyone gets increasingly excited about the upcoming matches of Petecio, fans can expect snippets of the Davao del Sur-born athlete’s SEA games experience on her TikTok account @nesh114.
Aiming to get his second SEA Games gold medal, mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Mark Striegl will lead a four-man team representing the Philippines to compete in the Cambodian martial arts kun bokator match of the 32nd SEA Games. In the 2019 SEA Games, Striegl bagged gold in sambo, a Russian martial arts and combat sport.
When he’s not in a match, Striegl gets busy creating short videos of his workouts and some fitness tips on TikTok. A proud dad, he also shares funny videos about parenting and family time.
