PBA dreams for Archie

IT may be a few years yet before his dreams come true but for Arellano University sophomore and Pampanga native Archie Concepcion, things are falling into place. I have always said the winning combination to success in life for anyone will be skills and attitude and Archie scores high on both despite just being 22 […]

Fighting drug abuse

SPORTS is a natural antidote against illegal drugs abuse. This I believe because sports will teach people, particularly young people, the discipline needed in order to stay and succeed in sports. Values of sportsmanship, determination, patience, hard work, punctuality, respect and focus are just some of the things that an athlete can learn from engaging […]

San Beda winning tradition

IT was déjà vu for me when I went to watch the second game in the NCAA Season 94 men’s basketballbest-of-three finals series between defending champion San Beda University Red Lions and the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates at the Mall of Asia Arena last Monday. I seldom go out now and watch live […]

Sports and social media

I ADMIT I go to social media now to get a better feel of how people are reacting to what is happening in the local world of sports. And believe me I do get a lot of comments that would range from the sublime to ridiculous, to the intellectual, with some wanting to sound intellectual […]

PH para athletes show worth

PRIOR to the recently-concluded 3rd Asian ParaGames in Indonesia, I really thought that our para athletes will do much better in their performance but definitely they exceeded expectations with their medal production and overall standing. For the record, the PH Asian ParaGames delegation brought home a total of 10 gold, 8 silver and 11 bronze […]

Good luck to our para-athletes

LAGI kong sinasabihan ng “good luck” ang mga atleta natin tuwing sasali sila sa malalaking competition abroad. Kaya “good luck” sa ating mga para-athletes na lalahok sa Asian Para Games na gagawin sa Jakarta at Palembang sa Indonesia umpisa sa Sabado, Oktubre 6. Pero more than “luck” ang magdadala sa ating mga atleta para makapag-uwi […]

Hinaing ni Hidilyn

ANG matagal ng hinihintay ng marami , lalo na sa daigdig ng weightlifting ay nangyari na. Hindi ito ang isang gintong medalya sa Olympics dahil sa 2020 Tokyo Olympiad pa maaring mangyari iyon. Ang ibig kong sabihin na nangyari na ay nagsalita na si 2016 Olympics silver medalist at Asian Games gold medal winner Hidilyn […]

Empowerment sa atleta

SABI nga ni Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) deputy secretary general Karen Tanchanco Caballero, wala pa raw siya sa pwesto niya ngayon ay na interview ko na siya at nakatataba naman ng puso na isa raw ako sa kanyang pinagtitiwalaan na sports writer. Ako naman kasi ay nakita ko naman sa kanya ang gusto kong makita […]

Para sa ikauunlad ng sports

NAKABALIK na sa Pilipinas ang lahat ng atleta at mga sports officials natin mula sa 18th Asian Games sa Indonesia. Siyempre pinag-uusapan na ngayon ang naging performance natin doon kung saan nanalo tayo ng 4 gold medals (sa golf, skateboarding at weightlifting), 2 silver medals (sa boxing at judo) at 15 bronze medals naman na […]

Simulan na ang pagbabago

PATAPOS na ang 18th Asian Games sa Jakarta at Palembang sa Indonesia kung saan sumabak ang ating mga atleta. At kung matagumpay ba o hindi ang ating paglahok dito ay depende sa pananaw ng tumitingin. Sa nakaraang Asian Games sa Incheon, South Korea noong 2014 ay isang ginto lamang ang naiuwi ng ating delegasyon. Ngayon […]

Sports tourism sa Legazpi

LAST week, nasa Legazpi City ako sa Albay para sa ASTC Mt. Mayon Asian Paratriathlon Championships at Triathlon Asian Cup na hosted ni Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal. Isa kasi sa flagship programs ni Mayor Rosal ang sports tourism kaya hindi na ako nagtaka sa suportang ibinibigay niya sa triathlon. Pero bago ako magkuwento tungkol […]
