MANILA, Philippines — After trimming the outer edges further, the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) said the combined delegation to the 2011 Southeast Asian Games has been lowered to 599 athletes and officials from the original 900.
As of the latest count, 409 will make up the athletes, while the remainder will be comprised of coaches, trainers, managers, technical officials, medical personnel and secretariat as the POC has vowed to send a lean contingent to the Nov. 11 to 22 sportsfest that will be hosted by Palembang (main hub) and Jakarta.
