Angel Locsin used to be an athlete! Here’s everything you need to know about her being a swimming champ.

Most of us have seen how impressive Angel Locsin’s underwater stunts in her action genre projects like ‘The General’s Daughter,’ ‘Asian Treasures’ and ‘Majika.’ One of which was posted recently on Instagram by a netizen with the handle @teamangel_locsin with the caption:

We all know Angel Locsin as an impeccable artist excelling in showbiz and also someone who is consistent in charity works. But you may be surprised to know that she has this competitive side, that of being accomplished athlete, who, in their time made waves in the local and international sports arena.

Yes, she is a former athlete who used to be a swimming champ and was member of the Philippine Swimming Team which competed in Hongkong. That’s why it is no surprise why she does UNDERWATER scenes to perfection! We can say water is her natural habitat, in fact, on one Instagram photo she said, “Pretty sure I was a mermaid in my past life...”

Here’s a trip down memory lane to feed your curious minds. Before her showbiz career, Angel Locsin (Angelica Colmenares, born April 23, 1985) was a student and a member of the U.S.T. high school swimming team from 1998-1999.

She got her swimming genes from her father Angel Colmenares, a 1954 Asian Games gold medalist in the 4 x 200 meter freestyle. She became so proficient in swimming that she joined the UST High School Varsity swim team.

Angel once held the swimming record in the National Capital Region in the breast stroke, her forte. She used to train three to four hours a day. She once represented the country as member of the Philippine team in a meet in Hong Kong. She could have made it further, but showbiz discovered her and now known as THE Angel Locsin.
