Olympic-bound athletes to get priority once COVID-19 vaccine is available -- POC president Tolentino

Congressman and Philippine Olympic Committee president Bambol Tolentino promised to lobby for the Tokyo Olympics-bound Filipino athletes to be in the priority list of recipients once the vaccine for coronavirus (COVID-19) becomes available. “Definitely mayroong allocation diyan. Ilalaban natin yun na i-priority natin ‘yung sports because of the Olympics,” said Tolentino in Tuesday during the online session of the Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum. “Sa ngayon wala pang guidelines (on priority) dun but we can lobby for that because of this Olympics.” The representative of the eighth district of Cavite said that once a vaccine is produced those who have already qualified for the Games next year will get their shots. “Actually, kung ibe-base lang natin ‘yan sa number of delegates iilan lang ‘yun. ‘Yung mga nag-qualify, officials at kung sino ang delagates from media (na pupunta),” he said. “Hindi naman natin pababayaaan ang mga atleta natin. Pupunta tayo doon kung mayroon nang vaccine,” he added. “Sigurado ako na mapa-priority ang mga athletes natin going to the Olympics.” Four athletes have already qualified for the Games, which was pushed back to July 23 to August 8 2021 from its original schedule of July 24-August 9 this year because of the pandemic. Pole vaulter EJ Obiena, gymnast Carlos Yulo and boxers Eumir Marcial and Irish Magno have earned their tickets to the Games. Rio Olympics silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz of weightlifting and Kiyomi Watanabe of judo are expected to qualify once the qualifying tournaments resume early next year.   Tolentino is also looking at inclusion the athletes heading to the Vietnam Southeast Asian Games in November next year. “Mai-extend ‘yan up to Vietnam SEA Games,” he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
