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......»»

PBA: Compton proud of Banchero for playing through 'low blow'

Chris Banchero was not available for the media Wednesday after Game 4 of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Finals but his head coach was more than proud of his reaction despite taking a closed fist to his family's crown jewels. In the fourth quarter of Alaska's Game 4 win to tie the Finals at two games each, the TV replay clearly showed that Magnolia's Mark Barroca landed a closed fist on Banchero's nether region. No foul was called as Banchero went down in pain. Things remained a little testy between both point guards afterwards both overall, thing's didn't escalate any further. "We talked about being willing to take a punch and play through it," Compton said. "If somebody hits you, expect it, and then it seems like a lot of times, when you get hit and you hit back, they'll call you hitting back. Just play through it. He [Banchero] took the punch, and he kept going," Compton added. While Compton was happy about Banchero keeping his cool, the Alaska head coach was absolutely furious about the low blow he took from Barroca. Compton was not having it post-game and he's looking for some possible sanctions from the league. "If we're gonna get punched multiple times, and there aren't calls or suspensions, I've got a problem with it. You all saw it, right? We have an officiating crew that perhaps didn't see it, and I understand that. They can't see everything. But Jio punched us, somebody punched Mike in the testicles, somebody punched Chris in the testicles," Compton said. "I'm really curious if there's gonna be suspensions. Because if you're not gonna call it in the game, if you're not gonna have anything... punching, as we say in our family to our kids, the male part, that's literally a low blow. And I'm not happy about that one bit. That's dirty basketball," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
