GMA News Online reports that Filipino athletes are starting to arrive in Indonesia with 61 bets, including officials, arriving in Jakarta on Wednesday, for the 26th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games). Athletes from 11 countries will participate in 44 sports from November 11 to 22.

The Philippine contingent has a total of 747 athletes, coaches, and officials. The biggest group is the 27-member taekwondo team, which is composed of 17 athletes, five coaches, four technical officials, and a team manager.
