PSC releases P351M
for Olympic hopefuls

Despite the budget cut due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) said it was still able to release P351 million to support the national athletes vying for spots in next year's Tokyo Olympics.

The PSC revealed yesterday that the amount was released for the first six months of 2020, and that is despite giving up almost P1.37 billion in total to the national government in its battle against Covid-19.

“It has been quite a challenge but we hope to keep our commitment to fund and support our athletes who have shown strong determination and chances in winning our first Olympic gold,” said PSC chairman William “Butch” Ramirez.
