The Philippine women’s football team also made their mark by earning a ticket to the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time ever, following their third-place finish at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup under coach Alen Stajcic.

Alongside Yulo, Obiena, and the women’s football team, other athletes will also receive major awards, including Carlo Paalam (boxing), Meggie Ochoa and Kimberly Anne Custodio (jiu-jitsu), Junna Tsukii (karate), Rubilen Amit, Carlo Biado, and Johann Chua (pool), Vanessa Sarno (weightlifting), Jovelyn Gonzaga and Sisi Rondina (beach volleyball), Blacklist International (esports-ML), Jessie Guca (jockey), and Boss Emong (horse).

The coveted Athlete of the Year award will be given to Hidilyn Diaz, the country’s first-ever Olympic gold medalist, for the second year in a row.

Aside from his world championship performance, Yulo also dominated the 9th Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Doha, Qatar, where he won three gold medals in the vault, parallel bars, and floor exercise, as well as a silver in the all-around event. His impressive feats earned him an outright berth in the World Artistic Gymnastics competition. At the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam, Yulo became the most bemedalled athlete of Team Philippines with five gold medals in artistic all-around, floor exercise, still rings, vault, and horizontal bar.
