PSC to rehab Mindanao State U swimming pool in Marawi City


THE Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) will refurbish the Mindanao State University’s (MSU) swimming pool later this year as part of the national government rehabilitation program for Marawi City.

PSC Engineer Eduardo Clariza and Architect Noel Elnar already conducted initial inspections and assessed the status of the swimming pool, which played host to several national University Athletic Association of the Philippines competitions in the 1980s and other regional meets.

“The plan is to rehabilitate the facility to meet international standards,” Clariza said. “A covered pool is being designed in consideration of the environment and cultural sensitivity of Islamic practices.”

PSC technical staff also inspected the new rubber surface of the MSU athletics oval which was also refurbished with PSC support.

MSU President Dr. Habib Macaayong thanked the PSC and the national government and the people of Lanao del Sur during a courtesy visit of the PSC delegation to his office.

“We are forever grateful for this assistance from the PSC,” Macaayong said. “MSU expresses full support to the sports development programs of the PSC.”

MSU is intended to be the “Center for Sports for Peace and Development” in Mindanao.

PSC Consultant and MSU Prof. Henry Daut, together with University Engineer Presciosa Dimaporo, assisted the PSC team during their visit.

MSU Marawi Campus conferred Doctor of Humanities Honoris Causa to PSC Chairman William Ramirez for his contribution to the Mindanao Sports for Peace movement during the university’s celebration of its 60th founding anniversary last month.
