I formally took over the helm of the Davao City Sports Council during our meeting last night. As the 1st vice president, I took over by succession to the post vacated by the untimely death of our president Victorio “Vic” Sai.
With more than four decades of experience in sports journalism and organizing, it is truly hard to fill in the shoes of Vic.
On top our transition agenda is to continue on-going sports projects personally handled by Vic such as the forthcoming Primovit basketball and chess tournaments in April and May and the triathlon championship next month, and the preparations for the So Kim Cheng Sports Awards in July.
Also, numerous sports activities are lined up during the summer by the various sports association affiliated with the Sports Council including arnis, duckpin bowling, swimming, basketball, lawn tennis, table tennis, sepak takraw, baseball, cycling, track and field, and badminton. Local athletes are also busy preparing for the Palarong Pambansa slated in Palawan later next month.
I am happy to note the full backing of the members of the Sports Council to continue our work in bannering sports development in the city.
