Baguio mends sports centers
by Ofelia C. Empian

Despite losing its hosting bid for the Palarong Pambansa 2018, the city government of Baguio continues to upgrade its sports facilities for the local athletes.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan in his weekly “Ugnayan” said the improvements of the sports facilities are ongoing.

“We need to improve our sporting facilities for our own children,” Domogan said.

He said the Olympic-sized swimming pool at the Athletic Bowl would be improved since its power consumption is high.

He said they are planning to solarize the power, through private-public partnership (PPP), to be used in the operation of the swimming pool.

Also, Domogan earlier ordered the City Buildings and Architecture Office to fast track the public bidding for the construction of a multi-story sports building, worth P60 million, funded from the 2016 supplemental budget. The building will be built near the swimming pool. It will accommodate various sporting events. The initial design includes a parking space at the ground floor and facilities for indoor games and ball games for the rest of the floors.

Meanwhile, City Sports Coordinator Gaudencio Gonzales said city athletes are also busy preparing for their respective sports events in preparation for the Palarong Pambansa in Vigan, Ilocos Sur in April next year. 

He said the upcoming events should also be a training ground for local athletes, who are mostly players in the Palarong Pambansa.

Events include the Luzon leg of the Batang Pinoy on Dec. 22 to 28 in Vigan City where 341 athletes, coaches and officials from the city are expected to attend the event; and the Philippine National Games on Dec. 10 to 16 in Cebu City.

Also, Department of Education-Cordillera Information Officer Georaloy Palao-ay said they would focus on preparing Cordilleran athletes for the upcoming 2018 Palarong Pambansa.
