Senate to grill sports chiefs

User Rating:  / 1

The country’s sports leaders will go under the microscope today when they face the Senate committee on Games, Amusement and Sports.


The leadership of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and even the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) will be represented in the hearing with the Senate expecting to see a detailed account of the country’s preparation for the 2013 Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar.

The SEAG is scheduled Dec. 11 to 22 although competitions in football will kick off as early as Dec. 1, followed by the opening of basketball and boxing matches a week later.

Chairman Richie Garcia will lead the PSC cast, while former Tarlac congressman Jose ‘Peping’ Cojuangco, uncle of President Noynoy Aquino, is also expected to attend the hearing along with other high-ranking officials from POC. Manila Bulletin
