Eguchi to supervise aquatics trials

A veteran aquatics technical official from Japan will oversee the conduct of the four-day trials for the selection of members on the national team to the 32nd Southeast Asian Games in Cambodia.

The members of the Stabilization Committee that is tasked to handle aquatics in the country said Kazumi Eguchi will supervise the trials set from 16 to 19 February at the New Clark City Aquatics Center in Capas, Tarlac.

Eguchi’s resume includes officiating in the London Olympics in 2012, World Championships in Rome in 2009 and Barcelona in 2013, Asian Games in Jakarta in 2018 and numerous Asian age group championships.

She also played a key role in the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2021.

Stabilization committee member Valeriano “Bones” Floro said Eguchiu’s appointment was facilitated by the Asian Swimming Federation.

The Stabilization Committee, which is also composed of Philippine Olympic Committee legal head Atty. Wharton Chan and Bases Conversion and Development Authority senior vice president for corporate services group Arrey Perez, has programmed 34 events in swimming on top of the men and women water polo teams and athletes for the individual 3-meter springboard and platform for men and women in diving.

Registration and inquiries could be made through the official email address [email protected]. The technical handbook for the trials could be requested through email.

Deadline for registration is on 14 February.
