Kayla Sanchez, who won a medal in the Olympics, will have to wait a little while longer before she can start winning medals for the Philippines in international events.
Before Kayla Sanchez, who is 21 years old and a swimmer, can officially compete for the Philippines in international swimming competitions, she must first fulfill a residency requirement of 365 days, which is required by FINA rules.
According to the president of the Philippine Swimming Inc., Lani Velasco, this indicates that she would not be able to compete in the swimming competition in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games, which will be held in Cambodia in May of the following year.
Velasco told BusinessMirror on Monday that the athlete will be 13 days behind schedule for the Southeast Asian Games to be held in Cambodia. Should this be the case, she stands a good chance of winning anywhere between six and seven gold medals.

Kayla Sanchez made the decision to become a citizen of the Philippines rather than Canada, the country for which she competed in the Tokyo Olympics and won a silver and a bronze medal.
She has always been a citizen of the Philippines, despite the fact that her parents, Susana and Noel Sanchez, are from Mabalacat, Pampanga. Her parents are Filipino.
Velasco responded by saying, “But that’s okay, there are still a lot of events planned up.” The 30th of June in 2023 will mark the end of her residency.
According to Velasco, Kayla Sanchez will be available for the World Aquatics Championships, which will take place in Fukuoka, Japan, in July of the following year.
According to Velasco, she is presently in the process of training in Austria, where she will also compete in club races in order to maintain her fitness level.
Chloe Isleta won the women’s 200-meter backstroke event at the Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam last May and took home the country’s only swimming gold medal. In addition, Filipino swimmers won three silver medals and three bronze medals throughout the games.
