Records set, lessons learned as Palarong Pambansa 2018 ends

ILOCOS SUR -- Palarong Pambansa once again showcased the most promising Filipino youth sports talent, as it draws to a close after seven days at the Quirino Stadium in Bantay, Ilocos Sur last April 21. The 61st installment of the country's flagship sports program saw student-athletes break several records, and the event itself became an avenue for broader discussions on youth development and child protection. At the closing ceremony, Department of Education Undersecretary and Palarong Pambansa Secretary-General Tonisito Umali encouraged the youth to translate their on-court success to other facets of their lives. “Aking hinihikayat kayong lahat, samahan ninyo ang ating Ma’am Liling Briones at ang buong Kagawaran sa ating paglalakbay upang makabuo ng isang Filipino na kampeon, na hindi lamang kampeon sa palakasan kung hindi kampeon sa tunay na buhay," Umali said. After a week of intense competition, Ilocos Sur Governor Ryan Singson made sure to remind the young athletes to look beyond the results. “We have successfully completed the journey, and now we end it by celebrating victories and learned lessons of defeat. Remember, young athletes, that in winning or losing, there are always lessons one can get and these are far more important than any other awards,” the governor said during his opening message following the parade of delegates.   THREE TYPES OF EDUCATION Makati representative and former taekwondo champion “Monsour” Del Rosario recalled his earlier experiences and stressed the importance of sports' role in developing a sound athlete and a model citizen. “Kayo po ang future ng Philippine sports. Nakikita ko po ang sarili ko sa inyo noon – isang atleta, a faceless person in a crowd of 15,000 athletes. Itong sporting event na ito ay napakahalaga sa ating mga kabataan,” the congressman shared. He also continued by sharing his belief in three types of education: “Number one na education ay nanggagaling sa ating pamilya, sa ating parents at mga kapatid. Ang pangalawang education ay sa paaralan,nag-aaral tayo to become knowledgeable about many things in life. Ang third education ay ang sports education, ito minsan ay nakalilimutan ng ibang sector pero mahalaga din ito sa mga kabataan, dahil dito nade-develop ang character natin," he said. "Ang buhay natin ay parang sports din, sometimes we lose, sometimes we win, but if you have experienced competing in sports, you will know how to handle challenges in life." The National Capital Region (NCR) once again lorded over the weeklong sporting event, leading the medal tally by a huge margin, with Region IV-A (CALABARZON) and Region VI (Western Visayas) finishing second and third, respectively. The top winners received cash prize and trophy, and for the first time in the history of Palaro, winners in all the 21 regular sporting events were awarded with prizes by this year’s sponsors. the number of records set this year reached 40 (five in archery, 16 in athletics, and 19 in swimming), the most in Palarong Pambansa history. Aside from a gold medal and cash incentive, each of the record breakers received additional P3,000. “Aside from the additional incentive, these outstanding athletes will be seeded or given priority to represent the country in the 10th ASEAN School Games that will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,” Umali added.   CHAMPIONING THE SPIRIT, WELFARE OF FILIPINO ATHLETES Following an incident involving a DepEd personnel from Cebu City who was nabbed for alleged sexual assault on a 14-year-old student-athlete during the national meet, Umali announced the formation of a Child Protection Committee next year. “In the next Palaro in Davao, we will now have a Child Protection Committee to make sure that this sort of occurrence will never happen again. We will also conduct talks with officiating officials and coaches on how to avoid similar instances in the future,” Umali directed......»»

Vigan City all set for Palarong Pambansa in April

Vigan City is ready to roll out the red carpet for the more than 15,000 delegates from the country’s 17 regions expected to converge in the Ilocos Sur capital for this year’s hosting of the Palarong Pambansa next month. Department of Education Undersecretary Tonisito Umali made the pronouncement on behalf of the provincial government after personally inspecting the different venues where the various sports events for the April 15-21 meet will be held. “Vigan is definitely ready. The province hosted a regional qualifier of the Batang Pinoy last year and that shows its readiness to stage such big multi-sports event such as the Palaro,” said Umali during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the Tapa King Restaurant at Farmers Market in Cubao on Tuesday. “We had our final technical conference meeting a couple of weeks ago para tingnan sa huling pagkakataon yung preparation ng lalawigan. And no doubt, the facilities are of international standards. Handang-handa na sila,” said the Deped official. “Overall, I would say Vigan, Ilocos Sur is definitely ready.” Umali said DepEd expects the official athlete-delegates to be at around 12,000 competing in 21 regular sports events featured in the secondary level and 15 in the elementary side of the event for student-athletes 18-year-old-and-below. Perennial champion National Capital Region is again favored to win the overall title this year, although Umali noted the emerging rivalry between Calabarzon/Southern Tagalog and Western Visayas regions, which engaged in a close-battle for runner-up finish in the 2017 edition of the annual event held in Antique. In addition, Negros Island Region, which placed fourth last year, has now been made part of Regions 6 (Negros Occidental - Western Visayas) and 7 (Negros Oriental - Central Visayas). “So we’ll have to see ano ang effect pag ibinalik ulit as Regions 6 and 7 yung Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental,” added Umali in the session presented by San Miguel Corp., Tapa King, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. DepEd will continue to hold the demo sports of pencak silat, aero gymnastics, and dance sports, the same thing with the special Para events in aquatics, track and field, bocce, and goal ball. Being summer season, Umali said the Palaro will observe the same practice of not holding games from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “All games to be held during that time are indoor events,” said the government official. There will also be water dispensers stationed at the different sports venues for both athletes and officials, medical ambulances, doctors, and nurses are also on standby in both the playing court and billeting quarters, as well as police personnel. Umali also said the host province will be providing transportation unit for those coming from the Visayas and Mindanao regions which will carry them all the way to Vigan. “This is the first time the host LGU will shoulder transportation means or cost by providing buses to our athletes from Mindanao and the Visayas coming from a drop-off point lang. And lahat sila dadalhin sa Vigan, Ilocos Sur ng libre,” he said......»»
