Del­e­ga­tions seek­ing shel­ter in PSC dorms

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP SPORTS -

Manila – Al­most 450 per­sons are housed at the Philsports Com­plex and the Rizal Me­mo­rial Sports Com­plex.

On Philip­pine Sports Com­mis­sion (PSC) Chair­man Wil­liam "Butch" Ramirez's in­struc­tions, del­e­gates seek­ing shel­ter with the agency's dor­mi­to­ries are pro­vided with ac­com­mo­da­tions, food and trans­porta­tion while ev­ery­one awaits Ty­phoon Om­pong's exit.

In a joint state­ment is­sued to­day, the sports agency and the city gov­ern­ment of Baguio City as­sured all par­tic­i­pants of the Batang Pi­noy Fi­nals that all mea­sures to en­sure the safety of ev­ery­one are be­ing un­der­taken.

Baguio City Mayor Atty Mauri­cio Do­mo­gan has alerted po­lice in their area to es­cort all del­e­ga­tions go­ing up to the City of Pines. The high­way pa­trol will be ready to es­cort ve­hi­cles trans­port­ing Batang Pi­noy del­e­gates once they reach Rosario junc­tion in La Union.

Ge­n­e­sis Bus Line, a part­ner of the PSC for this Batang Pi­noy event, sup­port PSC and Baguio City in their ef­forts to keep ev­ery­one safe and com­fort­able by pro­vid­ing trans­porta­tion to del­e­ga­tions and per­son­nel.

Regis­tra­tion is on­go­ing but shall be closed to­mor­row, Satur­day, due to the weather dis­tur­bance.

To lessen the trans­ac­tion time, coaches may now process the regis­tra­tion of their team on be­half of the ath­letes.

Ramirez also said that the agency and Baguio City “are mak­ing ev­ery ef­fort to make it easy, safe and com­fort­able for par­tic­i­pants.”/
