BONG GO: Philippine National Games Act to develop a comprehensive sports program

Noting the need for a more integrated and wide-ranging approach in molding Filipino athletes and giving them opportunities to compete, Chair of the Senate Committee on Sports Senator Christopher “Bong” Go introduced a bill that shall provide a structure for a more comprehensive national sports program, linking grassroots sports promotion to national sports development.

The bill will ensure a more inclusive system of promoting promising Filipino athletes who possess potential in various fields of sports to be given an equal opportunity of becoming future contenders in international sporting competitions and cement the country’s status as a ‘Sports Powerhouse in Asia’.

The bill shall address other Olympic and Asian Games sports, which have proven to give the country more medals in international competitions, but are not regularly included in Palarong Pambansa or any other sports programs in the country.
