POSF stays relevant amid pandemic

(The Philippine Star) - December 9, 2020 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation (POSF) made sure it hurdled the challenges for it to thrive and stay relevant in this time of pandemic.

Atty. Al Agra, POSF president, said despite all the limitations that COVID-19 has caused the past nine months, his federation managed to put its plans and programs in place.

“We coined the term advertunity in that there are opportunities amid the adversities,” said Agra in yesterday’s online Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum.

“We relied on our resiliency. We did not look at the new normal but the better normal, and through sports contribute to sustainability and development in the country. We put up the Association for Community Sports Advocates or ACSA,” said Agra.

While keeping its athletes in shape for forthcoming events through virtual workouts, the POSF and ACSA also laid down programs for the street children, the visually impaired, those who are deaf.

“It’s sports for all with no discrimination. We created a primer on 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) covering sports, human rights and our national athletes. We put up a template on sports ordinance for the cities, municipalities and provinces,” said Agra.
