Kerry, on our latest Woodstock rundown wrote an article about the World masters 2009, click here for more.

I did try to search for fellow Filipino on the games amongst the 28, 000 list in the 170 pages of competitors, unfortunately I am not able to find one :(.  Thinking bout it its bit dear 220 plus accomodation and plane ride :(.

This event is worth watching.  The oldest competitor would be 101 Years old! and master athletes who competed in past olympics re-visting their games.  Note that the games showcase almost all Olympic games!

More information about the 2009 World Master’s games can be found here.

Good luck to the Woodstock and to all the competitors and hoping for good results!
