467 CAR athletes ready for better Palaro performances
by Harley F. Palangchao

The 467 athletes from the Cordillera are aiming for better finish in the 2015 Palarong Pambansa set in Tagum City, Davao Del Norte from May 3 to 9.

The region’s 703-member delegation will be composed of 67 coaches, 29 assistant coaches, 16 chaperons and six trainers, 19 elected officials, 18 members of the management board, and 81 members of the technical and working committees, according to Department of Education Regional Director Ellen Donato.

The delegation is composed of 221 elementary athletes, 327 high school athletes, and 37 athletes for special events.

The Cordillera delegation aims to improve from last year’s medal haul of 24 golds, 11 silvers, and 12 bronzes.  Las year’s performance, however, is considered impressive for the region, as it placed fourth among all participating regions from the consistent 10th place overall in previous years.

Baguio has the biggest delegation for the Cordillera having ruled the 2015 Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association meet with 197-92-67-medal haul in February.

Benguet has the second biggest number of athletes after  its back-to-back second place with 42 gold, 69 silver, and 101 bronze medals.

Over 20 sporting events will be played in the Palaro, to include basketball, swimming, archery, volleyball, taekwondo, athletics, arnis, baseball, boxing for secondary, chess, football, futsal, lawn tennis, and table tennis.

Other events are sepak takraw, wushu and wrestling, including indigenous sports, such as arm wrestling and stilts.

Cordillera athletes are expected to excel in combative sports while two or more athletes are seen to show good performance in swimming and archery.
