PSC Invitational Golf Cup to raise funds for Paris-bound athletes

by

THE PHILIPPINE Sports Commission (PSC) is set to raise additional funds for Paris Olympics and Paralympic Games-bound athletes by conducting the PSC Invitational Golf Cup at the Canlubang Golf and Country Club on June 14.

“We would like to thank all the sponsors who have committed their support for this event and we ensure these can go a long way for our athletes vying to continue the legacy we built in the Olympics and Paralympic Games,” PSC Chairman Richard Bachmann said.

The project aims to gather more than P2 million to be equally distributed to the qualified athletes as they start training for the summer games.

As of writing, the country’s Paris Olympic roster stands at 15 with Tokyo Olympic silver medalist Carlo Paalam and Hergie Bacyadan recently claiming each tickets from the qualifying tournament in Thailand, while four para-athletes are formally qualified for the Paralympic Games namely Ernie Gawilan, Angel Otom, Allain Ganapin, and Agustina Bantiloc.

The participants are set to be identified in partnership with other sports institutions such as the Philippine Olympic Committee, the national sports associations, and members of the media.
