After Fil-Aussie Jason Day's breakthorugh win at the PGA Championship, do you ever wonder if there are other international athletes out there with Filipino blood?
Good, then you are in luck as we have your fix for some athletes shining abroad with Pinoy roots.
First off is Seattle Seahawks wide receiver and Super Bowl champion Doug Baldwin Jr.
Baldwin's grandmother is a Filipina and you might remember him best for carrying the Philippine flag to a Seattle home game in 2013 after Typhoon Yolanda ravaged Tacloban, the hometown of his grandma.
Next is Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba, whose mother emigrated from the Philippines to Austria to work as a nurse.
The 23-year-old rising football star also famously carried the Philippine flag after Bayern Munich's Champions League victory in 2013.
Natalie Coughlin is a three-time Olympic gold medallist and is one-quarter Filipino. Her family is from Cavite and her favorite Pinoy treats are halo-halo and chicken adobo.
Nick Rimando plays for the Real Salt Lake FC. He is the MLS Cup MVP in 2009 and is a five-time MLS All-Star. Rimando's father is Filipino.
Tim Lincecum is a pitcher for the San Francisco Giants. He is a three-time World Series champion and the first player in MLB history to win consecutive Cy Young awards in his first two full seasons. His mother is Filipina.
