CHED heads group drafting
collegiate sports training rules

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) will lead the way in setting up the return of collegiate sports teams to practice amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic

In an online press conference yesterday, CHED chairman Prospero de Vera said a technical working group (TWG) will be put up along with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and the Department of Health to craft the training guidelines, which will be primarily based on the joint administrative order for professional sports practices.

"The decision to put up the TWG is a result of a meeting that we had last week with the PSC, GAB (Games and Amusements Board), and the Department of Health last week and my meeting this morning with Dean Kiko Diaz of the UP (University of the Philippines) College of Human Kinetics and Coach Eric Altamirano," De Vera said.

Drex Zamboanga ready for next bout

Drex “T-Rex” Zamboanga, a former Philippine mixed martial arts world champion, marked his ONE Championship debut with a hard-earned submission victory over Thailand’s Detchadin Sornsirisuphathin Bangkok.

Despite the win, the 31-year-old Zamboanga highlighted the difficulties in training camp, having had to move from Pattaya, where he and his younger sister Denice trained at Fairtex.

Due to the lack of an established training facility, and the required sparring partners, Zamboanga says he was barely ready to head into the biggest fight of his career.
