PSC, sports groups meet to resume athletes’ training

MANILA — The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) said Friday it has begun meeting with officials of national sports associations (NSAs) on how national athletes could resume their training in their bid to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic. “This is to brief them on how they will formulate their updated protocol. This is also for submission to the IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases) to allow Olympic qualifying sports to start training,” national training director Marc Velasco said in a statement.

Velasco said the PSC recognizes that “our Olympic hopefuls need to maintain momentum and they do that by going back to focused training.”
