PHILIPPINE Sports Commission (PSC) chairman Richard Bachmann has committed to enhance training facilities for national athletes after making the rounds of PSC-supervised venues the latest of which was the Teachers’ Camp in Baguio City over the weekend.
“I can say that there are a lot of improvements to be done. We have a lot of work to do, but I know we will be able to accomplish it slowly but surely,” Bachmann told the PSC workforce during the Monday’s flag-raising ceremony at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila.
Bachmann met with Tokyo Olympics silver medalists Carlo Paalam and Nesthy Petecio, Asian Games silver medalist Rogen Ladon and Tokyo Olympian Irish Magno in Baguio City and watched them train at the PSC’S Teachers’ Camp facility.
“We’re very clad that Chairman Bachmann took time to visit us here in Baguio City,” Paalam said. “His presence is an added inspiration to train even more.”
Bachmann also met with Muay Thai and athletics athletes who are also based at the Teachers’ Camp—Muay’s Vietnam 31st Southeast Asian Games golf medalists Islay Erika Bomogao and bronze Rudzma Abubakar and 30th SEA Games athletics bronze medalist Joida Gagnao and training pool member Daniel Delatado.
He made the rounds of the national teams of windsurfers in Anilao (Batangas), gymnastics in Intramuros and squash, soft tennis, table tennis, water polo and para athletics at the RMSC in Manila and PhilSports Complex in Pasig City to kick off the new year.
