Sipa - The game is named after the act of playing the game. The object being used to play the game is also called sipa. It is made of a washer with colorful threads attached to it. 

One of the participants has to be the “it.” A participant may volunteer to be the “it,” or the “it” may be determined through a selection process; it could be through jack-en-poy (Rock, scissor, paper) or a toss coin.
Sipa is the national sports in the Philippines. Other popular recreational sports include boxing, billiards, basketball, chess, ten-pin bowling and football (soccer). Boxing, billiards, basketball and soccer are popular among Filipinos. The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) was founded in 1975. Dodge ball or mistakenly called as "touch ball" is also a favorite sport of those who play in schools during break time. The sports where the Filipinos have gained international successes are boxing, billiards (notably nine ball), ten-pin bowling, chess and football (soccer).

How do you call sipa in your country? Most Asians are participating this game in some sports contests but not yet included in the Olympics. BTW, the next olympics will beheld in your country. I guess you are very much excited to watch this Olympics next year!
