MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) is counting on the budget appropriation from the House of Representatives and Senate to boost the campaign of Filipino athletes in four major events next year.

POC president Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino said the leaderships of both houses have given their word regarding funding in a bid to sustain the country’s historic success in last month’s Tokyo Olympics.

“House Speaker Lord Velasco and Senate President Vicente Sotto III assured the inclusion of the budget for four major international competitions next year,” he said.

On tap in 2022 are the Winter Olympics in Beijing (Feb. 4-20), Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) in Thailand (March 10-20), Asian Games in Huangzhou (Sept. 10-25) and Asian Youth Games in Shantou, China (Dec. 20-28).
