2021 SEAG is the real test

EVEN as our medal winners in the recently-concluded 30th Southeast Asian Games are enjoying their hard-earned incentives just in time for Christmas, I am already looking ahead to 2021. Will there be a repeat performance in the 2021 SEA Games for the Filipino athletes? A few days ago, I was in Conrad Hotel for a […]

We won this one

WE won this one Yes, definitely, we won this one. And there’s no better way to cap our campaign to win the overall championship in the recently concluded 30th Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) that we hosted than winning both the men’s and women’s basketball gold medals before a roaring crowd at the Mall of Asia […]

Carrasco, triathlon delivers

AS planned, I am here in Subic for the weekend, both for business with our annual business planning and Christmas party for S1, a company I am helping manage for a couple of friends. Of course, I am here also for the 30th Southeast Asian Games (SEAG), at least for the 16 events scheduled here. […]

Let’s focus on the games

HOSTILITIES in the 30th Southeast Asian Games has already began even as the official opening ceremony is set this Saturday at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan, but unfortunately our polo team lost its inaugural game to Brunei in a close match but bounced back against defending champion Malaysia. Nobody said winning the gold, even in […]

Loyzaga perks up PH baseball

FROM boyhood, Chito Loyzaga, son of the country’s greatest basketball player Caloy, and himself a Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) superstar after his San Beda and YCO days, has been involved in sports. Now at 61, he continues to do so but this time in a different sport from basketball as he now the president of […]

In a recent coordination meeting by the Philippine Olympic Committee, POC president Bambol Tolentino came out with a prediction on gold medals that can be won. […]

Growth of Sepak is not accidental

RECENTLY I had a chance to watch the national finals of the Philippine Sepak Takraw League-Season 1 hosted by the Rizal Technological University in Mandaluyong City at its newly opened air-conditioned wellness gym. You see I find this sport visually exciting, seeing the athletes up in the air in seemingly impossible positions and unleashing kicks […]

Boxing optimistic for SEAG

BOXING is one sport we, Filipinos, have definitely proven that we can compete at the world level. I can even cite the performance of our professional boxers like Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire, among others, to show that this is one sport where we stand a good chance of eventually winning an Olympic gold. Anthony […]

Amazing Japan experience

THIS time I will digress from the usual sports talk and please allow me to reminisce on my recent trip to Japan, too early for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics though but then it really was a well earned break from work for me. More so that I had my wife Marissa, my two daughters Janis […]

Right direction for PH equestrian

EQUESTRIAN in the country is taking the right direction but sorry it is not Peping Cojuangco of the Equestrian Association of the Philippines who is spearheading the program. Instead it is another group headed by Carissa Coscoluella who in the past challenged Peping for the leadership position in the sport but did not make head […]

Upsetting Team USA

I AM sure basketball fans remember the 1992 Dream Team at the Barcelona Olympics fielded by the Americans consisting of the finest NBA stars like Michael Jordan, Clyde Drexler, Larry Bird, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Scottie Pippen, David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin and John Stockton. It was a real All-Star team […]
