Parents’ support needed by athletes
by Ofelia C. Empian

Children need all the support they could get to become successful athletes especially from their parents, according to the organizers of the annual north and central Luzon Milo Little Olympics.

“Kung walang support ang parents, it’s hard to discover talents,” said Tes Bernardino, local organizer of the event, which is expected to gather 5,000 young athletes.

Bernardino, however, said that parents now are more inclined to assist their children in allowing them to join the various sports competition of the event as compared to when the Milo Little Olympics was just starting.

She said more support is needed especially in molding their children to become world-class athletes in the future starting with joining the Milo Little Olympics.

Various sporting competitions are set in this year’s regional leg including badminton, basketball, chess, football, gymnastics, lawn tennis, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, volleyball, sepak takraw and scrabble. Arnis and karatedo will be featured as demonstration sports.

Expected to rise in this year’s event is defending champion Baguio City High School that topped the high school event with 195.5 points courtesy of its boys and girls athletics, arnis, football, gymnastics, table tennis, tennis and volleyball.

On second place was University of Baguio topping the arnis, athletics boys, chess, scrabble boys, swimming girls and taekwondo with a total of 113 points.

On third place is perennial winner Holy Angel University from Pampanga with 84 points, shining in the girls chess, table tennis boys, taekwondo, and tennis.  

League leaders in the elementary category are Bonifacio Elementary School along with Candon South Central School and Sevilla Elementary School.

Bonifacio ES topped the athletics girls and boys while Candon shone in the chess boys, boys football, scrabble boys, table tennis boys. Sevilla ES topped the karatedo girls division.

The annual sporting games aims to develop young athletes in the grassroots level to prepare them for higher sporting events ultimately in the Olympics.

The yearly event is also supported by the Department of Education, Philippine Sports Commission and the Philippine Olympic Committee.
