PSL sisimulan ang pagsasala para sa 2019 University games

MANILA, Philippines —  Ngayon pa lamang ay mag­sisimula nang hu­manap ang Philippine Swimming League (PSL) ng mahuhusay na tan­kers na isasabak sa 30th Summer World University Games na gaganapin sa Napoles, Italy sa 2019.

Dalawang qualifying tournaments ang isasagawa ng PSL na magsisilbing qualifying events sa mga college students na nagna­nais makahirit ng tiket sa Uni­versiade.

Unang aarangkada ang PSL sa Luzon tampok ang 121st PSL National Se­ries sa Setyembre 23 sa Si­bul Spring Nature Resort sa Abucay, Bataan kasunod ang pagtatanghal ng 122nd PSL National Series Rotary Challenge Long Course Swimming Meet sa Setyembre 30 sa Rizal Me­morial Sports Complex swimming pool sa Malate, Manila.

“PSL prepares two years before each Univer­siade competition. We are in­viting all college students to­day and those who will be in college in 2019 to start training with the PSL and join the tryouts which we will held nationwide. Please follow all important an­nouncements on the PSL official websites,” pa­ha­yag ni PSL President Su­san Pa­pa.

Nakatakda ring duma­yo ang PSL sa iba’t ibang pa­nig ng bansa sa Visayas at Mindanao upang maka­pi­li ng mga swimmers na ma­giging kinatawan ng ban­sa sa naturang world meet.

“Last selection, we were messed up of selection by someone that wants to des­troy PSL. Nevertheless, our grassroot swimmers are now beginning to be grown ups. The last se­lection was mostly PSI swimmers that decided to go with PSL so they can be given opportunity. Scholarships for college students can be arranged by PSL for deserving swimmers as we have so far done in the past,” ani Papa.

Mismong si PSL Chairman at dating Senador Nik­ki Coseteng ang mangu­nguna sa seleksiyon kasama ang mga kinatawan ng Federation of School Sports Association of the Philippines (FESSAP) sa pangunguna ni FESSAP chief David Ong.

“We start training early so that the swimmers can be given opportunity to com­pete in international com­petitions before the next universiade in Italy. I am very proud of our grass roots swimmers, who, at the moment are still in high school but will be eligible for the Universiade in 2021,” wika ni Coseteng.

Nakapagpartisipa na ang PSL sa apat na edisyon ng Universiade - noong 2011 sa Shenzhen, China, 2013 sa Kazan, Russia, 2015 sa Gwangju, South Korea at sa katatapos na 2017 edisyon sa New Taipei City, Taiwan.

“So far, all swimmers of PSL have had extensive training in chance given to compete in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan, United Arab Emirates and Thailand. They are brea­king records of Rio Olympics gold medalist Jo­seph Schooling,” dagdag ni Coseteng.
