MANILA, Philippines – Tatlong ginto ang nakikita ng Philippine Sailing Association na kanilang maihahatid sa 28th SEA Games sa Singapore sa Hunyo.

“I think we have a very good chance in the keel boats and 470 class. We will be able to get at least three gold medals for sai­ling,” wika ni PSA president Ernesto “Judes” Echauz.

Noong 2005 Philippine SEA Games huling nanalo ng gintong medalya ang bansa na naipagkaloob ni German Paz sa Olympic Class Neil Pryde RX:S event.

Pero hindi na naulit ito at tatlong pilak at isang bronze medal na lamang ang kanilang naihatid.

Nasa 20 gintong me­dalya ang paglalabanan sa Singapore na kung saan inaasahang hahataw ang host country dahil isa sila sa malakas sa water sport na ito.

“We have a very good chance. And what’s important is the training to be conducted,” ani Echauz na isa sa mga deputy chief-of-mission sa Pambansang delegasyon.

Si Julian Camacho ang Chief-of-mission habang si Cynthia Carrion ng gymnastics ang isa pang deputy.

Para patingkarin ang pagsasanay kukuha ang asosasyon ng coach mula New Zealand para tulu­ngan ang mga sailors ng bansa.

Nasa $5000 hanggang $7000 ang bayad dito at sasagutin ito ng Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).
