We may have won as one in the recent SEA Games, but we lose in the long haul if we continue to cast a blind eye on the deep flaws that continue to plague Philippine Sports. It is precisely this misuse of authority that compeled the best of our sportsmen, our thinkers, our leaders to exercise their talents away from our native shores; the same abuse of authority that caused the clear demise of Philippine Sports during the past decade. Let us not allow this same tragedy to ever happen again. Let justice and unity prevail in Philippine Sports.
Let us join hands to make our country proud. Let us work together for a stronger Filipino youth. Let us teach our children proper conduct through professionalism in sports, espousing the correct values of teamwork, fair play and true sportsmanship. This should never be about our own personal aggrandizement. This should always be about our athletes, our people, our future. Only through this can we start hoping for a better Philippines ahead for our children.
PSC Chairman Butch Ramirez states: “This is the result of all the sacrifice and hard work of everyone. This victory is very sweet given the many difficulties we had to face. This win proves that we can achieve a lot when we come together united as one team. I am so proud of our athletes. All of them deserve our respect and love.”
