PHILIPPINE Olympic Committee (POC) Technical Commission Chairman Tom Carrasco will be resource speaker in the 12th session of the National Sports Summit 2021 on Wednesday.
Carrasco—the president of the Triathlon Association of the Philippines, Southeast Asian Triathlon and a board member of the Asian Triathlon Association—will delve on the topic “Main Support System of a Filipino Elite Athlete.”
Carrasco, a POC official since 2001, will discuss the organization’s role in supporting elite national athletes as they work hand in hand with the Philippine Sports Commission.
“Tom [Carrasco] is one of the fittest to converse on the topic being with the POC for a long time now,” PSC Chairman William Ramirez said. “This is also a chance for our participants to understand the dynamics behind an elite athlete.”
Under Carrasco’s watch, the Philippines had lorded it over triathlon in the Southeast Asian Games.
Carrasco also served as executive director of the Philippines SEA Games Organizing Committee in 2019.
