Giselle Bulahao: Dominating the Darts Scene in the Philippines

The darting arena in the Philippines witnessed an unparalleled display of skill and determination as Giselle Bulahao, an Igorot hailing from Yagyagan, Tuba, Benguet, clinched the prestigious title of the Chris Sports Lady Darter of the Year 2023. This achievement, bestowed upon her by the National Darts Federation of the Philippines (NDFP), stands as a resounding testament to her exceptional prowess in the sport.

Unveiling a Year of Triumphs

Bulahao's stellar performance throughout 2023 showcased an impressive array of victories. With a staggering 18 championship titles, five second-place finishes, four top-four placements, and one top-eight placement, she left an indelible mark on the national darts circuit. Her dedication and consistency were duly recognized by the NDFP, which awarded her the top spot with 1,257 ranking points, reflecting her dominance in 28 ladies' singles events.

Conquering International Arenas

Beyond national borders, Bulahao elevated her game to conquer international competitions. Her notable triumphs at the Malaysian Open and Johor Open 2023, where she emerged victorious in the ladies' singles category, solidified her status as a force to be reckoned with. Notably, she secured a decisive 3-0 victory against Mahi Bosmia, the Indian national champion, in a thrilling finale at the Malaysian Open.

Sustained Excellence and Rankings

The NDFP ladies national quarterly ranking unveiled Giselle Bulahao as the undisputed leader, accumulating an impressive 1,767 points from 51 ladies' singles events since April 2022. Her consistent excellence over this period underscores her commitment to the sport and her ability to outshine competitors consistently.

A Competitive Landscape

While Bulahao stands atop the rankings, it's essential to acknowledge the competitive field within Philippine women's darts. Notable contenders like Jan-Jan Hinojales and Ging Ansale, securing the second and third spots respectively, showcase the depth of talent in the country. This competitive landscape adds significance to Bulahao's achievements, portraying the challenging environment she navigated to secure her top position.

Geographical Diversity in Excellence

The top eight in the NDFP ladies ranking features talents from various cities, including Robson-Davao City, Taytay, Baguio City, Manila, Butuan City, and General Santos City. This geographical diversity not only highlights the widespread appeal of darts but also emphasizes the inclusive nature of the sport across different regions in the Philippines.


In conclusion, Giselle Bulahao's journey to becoming the Chris Sports Lady Darter of the Year 2023 is a tale of unparalleled triumphs, both on the national and international stage. Her consistency, coupled with victories against formidable opponents, establishes her as a beacon of excellence in Philippine women's darts. As the sport continues to thrive, Bulahao's achievements contribute significantly to the growing legacy of women in darts, inspiring aspiring players across the archipelago.
