In the Philippines, the Olympic sport of wrestling (largely due to the leadership of the FILA-recognized WAP officers) is now part of the Palarong Pambansa; the Philippine Sports Commission's Batang Pinoy, Philippine National Games, and Women Martial Arts Festival; INC Unity Games; and Ultimate Challenge multi-combat sport and fitness event. The Wrestling Association of the Philippines also holds its own national championships and other events. Follow us on Twitter!:
