Baguio athletes reap 44–44–46 medals in Batang Pinoy Luzon
by Ofelia C. Empian

Young athletes from Baguio conquered Batang Pinoy once again, finishing off with 44 gold, 44 silver, and 46 bronze medals in the recently concluded 15 and under Luzon leg of the national games in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur.

City Sports Deve-lopment Officer Gaudencio Gonzales said the medal tally is based on Team Baguio’s unofficial medal count, as the Philippine Sports Commission has yet to issue  the official results on their web site.

Gonzales said the medal haul is courtesy of the young athletes led by the arnis team with 18 gold, 16 silver, and 15 bronze medals followed by taekwondo athletes with 14 gold, 13 silver, and 14 bronze medals.

Also contributing to the medal win are the archery team with eight gold, eight silver, and six bronze medals; boxing with 2-3-3 gold-silver-bronze medals; swimming team with one gold and one bronze medal; athletics with one gold, three silver, and two bronze medals; chess with two bronze medals; and badminton with one silver medal.

The participating Baguio teams joined other 122 local government units that joined in the Luzon leg participated in by close to 6,000 athletes.

Gonzales said based on the medal count, Baguio is the overall winner in the sporting event although they are awaiting the final official medal count from the PSC.

As of the Oct. 27 medal standing, Baguio is the overall winner edging other LGUs like Laguna that came in second followed by Dasmariñas, Cavite; Pangasinan; San Jose, Nueva Ecija; Pasig; La Union; Quezon City; Makati; and Lucena.

Batang Pinoy serves as the national sports competition program for young athletes with two categories: under 13 and 13 to 15 years old, and is envisioned to address the need for a grassroots sports program centered on values formation inherent in the practice of sports and play.

“(It aims to) inculcate in the young minds of Filipino athletes the value of patriotism, nationalism, self-discipline, respect for law and order, hard work, teamwork, camaraderie, sportsmanship, and fair play, thus eliminating the child’s chances of becoming a juvenile delinquent,” according to the Batang Pinoy site.

The program can also serve as a recruitment base for sports specialization including training for other high level leagues, national tournaments, and international competitions.
