MANILA, Philippines—The delegation of sports officials that will accompany alpine skier Asa Miller to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics are ready to depart to the Chinese capital.

Chef de mission Bones Floro and Athlete Welfare officer Joebert Yu will take a Japan Airlines from Manila to Tokyo and then to Beijing, a two-time host of the Games with its first in 2008.


“It’s all systems go for the departure of Team Philippines to Beijing,” said Floro. “We have been complying with all the COVID-19 countermeasures and protocols for travel to the Beijing Olympic bubble. We made sure that Asa’s only concerns are his training and competitions.”

Miller, his father Kelly, and Jim Palomar Apelar, Philippine Ski and Snowboard President, are expected to fly from Los Angeles to Beijing on Sunday.


Nikki Cheng, Philippine Skating Union President, will serve as the delegation’s COVID-19 Liaison Officer and will take a separate flight from Manila.

Will Gregorak, Miller’s American coach, will be the latest to arrive in Beijing as he’ll leave the United States some time next week.

Miller is the Philippines’ lone representative in the Winter Games. He will also be the country’s flag bearer at Beijing National Stadium on the opening ceremonies on February 4.
