Very "BIG THANKS!" from the Wrestling Association of the Philippines (WAP) to all who made our team's participation here possible, and helped them get by somehow: the PSC (Philippine Sports Commission), Nilda Lagman Sevilla, Rep. Edcel Lagman Sr. (Ret.), WAP Chairman Aries Supremo, former WAP Auditor Kandice Kara Mallonga, and a dear friend who prefers to remain anonymous. Special thanks, too, to the beautiful lady who gave our team 50 euros at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport, upon learning of our athletes' tight budget (either loaned or donated by private individuals). Her act of generosity happened so fast that our delegation head Secretary General Karlo Silverio Lagman Sevilla III didn't even get her name.
