DILI na modayon pa sa Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) 2020 pageant ang Binibining Pilipinas-International 2018 nga si Ahtisa Manalo.
Sa iyang Instagram stories niadtong Pebrero niluwat og pamahayag si Manalo kalabot sa iyang pag-atras sa Ms. U Philippines competition gumikan kay iya unang atimanon ang iyang panglawas.
“I need to take care of my health and I hope everyone will be understanding of it.
“I was hoping that I’ll be able to join this year; but after considering the opinion of everyone important in my life, we decided it’d be best for me not to push through.
“Believe me that I want to give you the fight you want to see, but I honestly don’t think I can manage to physically perform the duties of a candidate as this surely involves physically draining tasks.”
“For now, I am gonna work on getting back to my 100% and continue hoping to step on the Miss Universe stage one day,” matod pa sa beauty queen nga napatik sa PEP.ph. (B)
