Tolentino graces PSA session

Photograph COURTESY OF POC POC president Abraham ‘Bambol’ Tolentino feels the gold and silver medalists in the 32nd SEA Games in Cambodia should automatically be given slots in the 19th Asian Games taking place in Hangzhou in September.

After a three-week break following the country’s campaign in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games, the Philippine Sportswriters Association resumes its weekly Forum on Tuesday, with no less than Philippine Olympic Committee president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino serving as guest of the special session at the conference hall of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.

Tolentino, also the mayor of Tagaytay City, is expected to assess the Philippine performance in the Cambodia Games where it finished a fighting fifth or one notch below the 2021 edition in Hanoi but collected a total of 58 gold medals — the most the country ever had in the biennial meet since 1987.

The POC president will also talk about the Filipino athletes’ coming bid in the 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China this September, where some of the events serve as qualifiers to the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The session starts early at 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. as Tolentino will be attending to some pressing matters at noontime.

During the session, the PSA also holds the induction of its officers and board members led by newly-elected president Nelson Beltran, sports editor of the Philippine Star.

Tolentino, the current president of the Integrated Cycling Federation of the Philippines, will administer the induction ceremony.

Beltran enjoins all members and officials of the country’s oldest media organization to attend the session presented by San Miguel Corporation, MILO, Philippine Sports Commission, POC, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation.
