Neg. Occ., Bacolod delegations
head for DumagueteWednesday

Athletes from Negros Occidental and Bacolod City delegations are heading for Dumaguete City on Wednesday to compete in the Feb. 24-March 1 Palarong Negros Island Region 2017.

Bacolod City delegation assistant sports coordinator Dennis Estaniel said they have previously inspected the billeting area in Dauin Central School and are satisfied with its facilities.

The only difficulty will be the distance from Dauin to Dumaguete City, the main venue of the competition, Estaniel said, adding that they already have contingency measures to address the estimated 30-minute travel time from the billeting area to the playing venues.

Team Philippines joins
8th Asian Winter Games

Ice hockey player Carlo Miguel Garrucho had the honor of carrying the Philippine flag at the opening ceremony yesterday of the 8th Asian Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan.

Garrucho led the delegation comprising his 22 teammates, speed skater Kathryn Magno, figure skater Shayanne Casapao, snowboarder Ryan Christopher Espiritu and team officials during the parade of nations at the Sapporo Dome.

“The Filipino people can expect an all-out effort from the team in the Asian Winter Games. What the team lacks in experience, we will make up for in both hustle and heart,” said Garrucho, who plays defense.
