PHILIPPINE Sports Commission chairman William Ramirez assured that sports plans and current programs such as the Sports Institute will be fully implemented and sustained, confident that it won’t suffer the fate of earlier concepts that fell through.
A nationwide talent identification has been launched, plans have been made to refurbish existing facilities and P100 million worth of sports medicine equipment were ordered two months ago.
“The PSI, actually, has been in full operation for several months now,” Ramirez told SPIN.ph. "All the ingredients needed for embark on a truly, honest massive grassroots program are already in place."
“No, hindi na ito ningas kugon as what had happened before in the previous attempts to set up similar schemes,” Ramirez asserted.
“This is what our President wants us to do so we might as well make good its implementation as mandated us by RA 6847 (PSC Law).”
