MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines may have at the least 5 athletes competing within the Tokyo Paralympic Video games.

Three extra had been added to the Philippine delegation after swimmer Gary Bejino, wheelchair racer Jerrold Mangliwan and discus thrower Jeanette Aceveda secured their spots by means of bipartite slots on Wednesday.

Bejino, Mangliwan and Aceveda joined early entrants taekwondo jin Allain Ganapin and swimmer Erwin Gawilan.

Desk tennis participant Josephine Medina, who bagged the bronze within the 2016 Rio Paralympic Video games, remains to be ready for her official affirmation.

Medina, who ended the nation’s 16-year medal drought, is predicted to take part in her third straight Paralympic Video games.
