PH boxers stay fit during quarantine
MANILA, Philippines—The national boxers are not letting quarantine stop their fitness routines as they spend their time in isolation in Tagaytay.
Tokyo Olympics silver medalists Nesthy Petecio and Carlo Paalam, bronze medal winner Eumir Marcial, and Irish Magno all arrived in the Philipines on Monday after the most successful Philippine team in the Summer Games.
The four, along with the rest of the boxing team, are now serving their government-mandated quarantine at Summit Ridge Tagaytay hotel but being holed up inside their hotel rooms haven’t stopped their rigorous exercise regimens.
