(Pang-masa) - October 18, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Mismong sina Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go, House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, ang chairman ng Philippine South East Asian Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc), ang namangha sa world-class sports complex na New Clark City sa Capas, Tarlac.

Naniniwala sina Go at Cayetano na handang-handa na ang nasabing sports venue para sa 30th Southeast Asian Games.

“With these state-of-the-art facilities, we can show the athletes and guests from our neighboring countries that the Philippines is more than capable of hosting international sports events,” wika ni Go.

Magkasama sina Go at Cayetano sa site visit at mga miyembro ng House of Representatives Youth and Sports Development.

Ang New Clark City ang magsisilbing main hub ng 2019 SEA Games na nakatakda sa Nobyembre 30 hanggang Disyembre 11.

“Our athletes will now have an easy access to world-class sports facilities and therefore be able to develop their full potential, [and] winning in international sports competitions will be a regular achievement for Filipino athletes in the years to come.”

Itinayo sa loob ng 18 buwan, 95% nang kumpleto ang Phase 1A ng New Clark City National Government Administrative Center.

Nasa loob ng naturang sports facilities ang 20,000-seater na Athletics Stadium na sinertipikahan bilang Class 1 Athletics Facility ng International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

Nangangahulugan na pasado ang stadium sa global standards para sa international competition facilities kasama ang 2,000-seater na Aquatics Center na sertipikado ng Federation Internationale De Natation (FINA).

“We are so inspired by the facilities because [these] prove the point of our athletes that with more support, we can have a world-class sports program,” wika ni Cayetano.

Pinasalamatan naman ni BCDA President at CEO Vince Dizon sina Go at Cayetano para sa kanilang inis-yatibo para magkaroon ng modernong training facilities para sa mga national athletes.

“This is proof that the Duterte government is faithful and serious in its promise of building the best facilities for Filipinos, especially to our athletes who bring pride and glory to our country in their competitions,” wika ni Dizon.

Binisita rin ng mga legislators ang proposed site ng Philippine High School for Sports na magsisilbing training ground ng mga future national athletes.

Sisimulang itayo ang nasabing paaralan sa 2021.
