This Pinay Is At The Winter Olympics Too

9 Comments

We were watching the figure skating last night and when her name was announced as Amanda Evora, I was 100% sure she is Filipina. Her parents were at the audience supporting her and her partner Mark Ladwig. Amanda and Mark were silver medalist at the US National Championship which earned them a spot to be with the US team at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. This is their biggest competition and they both stand on the 10th place.
Amanda Evora was born in New York to father Vic from Calapan, Mindoro and mom Mary Ann from Isabela. She is the first full Filipino to be representing the U.S. at the Olympics.

Another Pinoy's pride huh?! I hope she makes it to the top.

I haven't seen any of those olympic games yet. Sana mapanood ko din sila.

Snowing pa rin ba dyan Alf?
Ingat lang!

I absolutely loved their performance! It was one of the best. Very artistic and really drew the audience in. Definitely one of my favorite pairs couples!
