The Philippine National Games is an annual competition jointly organized by the Philippine Olympic Committee and the Philippine Sports Commission "to serve as the final 'ranking and selection ground' for possible composition of the national pool" in various international tilts.

In 2011, winners from the Philippine National Games' cheerleading competition served as the country's representatives to the Cheerleading World championships in Hong Kong. - Roehl Niño Bautista / AMD, GMA News
