LOC awaits word from Asian Aquatics

The Philippine Aquatics Inc. clarified that the postponement of its hosting of the 11th Asian Age Group Swimming Championships has yet to be confirmed as the Asian Aquatics has yet to respond to the request of the Local Organizing Committee.

In a letter sent to all swimming clubs and organizations nationwide, PA president Miko Vargas and secretary general Eric Buhain announced that the “request for postponement” didn’t come from them but from the LOC which was tasked by the Asian Aquatics to organize the hosting through a memorandum of agreement.

The LOC is composed of the Bases Conversion Development Authority, the Philippine Olympic Committee, and the PA.

“It is essential to clarify that the Philippine Aquatics Inc., operates as a part of the LOC, responsible primarily for addressing the technical requirements and the selection of Philippine Team members,” PA said in a letter dated 20 October.

“In adherence to standard preparation protocols for significant competitions, we have already identified and qualified participants for the Asian Age Group Aquatics Championships under the presumption that the originally scheduled dates would remain unaltered.”

The PA officials, however, assured swimmers, parents, coaches, and parties concerned that “in the event of a confirmed postponement, we commit to making the requisite adjustments and issuing a subsequent announcement in a timely manner.”
