GATHERING OF PH OLYMPIANS

By Eddie Alinea

A representative of the World Olympians Association, Jovina Choo, is scheduled to visit Manila next week to meet the country’s Olympians and help them on how to involve themselves in propagating Olympism.

Former Philippine Olympians Association president Rafael ”Paeng” Hechanova said Ms. Choo, herself an Olympian, has been invited to attend the POA board meeting scheduled September 14 at Manila Golf, West Room for the purpose.

The invitation for Ms. Choo to come to the country was extended by Ms. Akiko Thomson-Guevara, an Olympic swimmer and current POA president, and taekwondo-jin and treasurer Stephen Fernandez in a meeting during the just-ended Asian Games in Indonesia.

The WOA representative met with officials of five Olympian associations in Asia through the help of Thomson-Guevara and Fernandez.

Basically, according to Hechanova, a 1952 Helsinki Olympian in basketball, Ms. Choo’s purpose is to assist the Filipino Olympians in empowering them and making sure they are capable and are in a position and wanting to give back and be involved in the Olympic movement.

“With this, of course, are various grants which the Olympics association can benefit in the future,” Hechanova said.

As the next Winter and Summer Games are here in Asia, there is great interest of the WOA in Asia.

The WOA is acknowledged as the Fourth Pillar of the Olympic Movement, next only to the International Olympic Committee, International Sports Federations, National Olympic Committees.

The WOA is an independent global organization formed for the purpose of representing all Olympians and furthering the aims and ideals of the Olympic Movement.

Former IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch inspired the creation of the WOA during the Congress of Unity and Centennial Session of the IOC held in Paris in 1994. A year later the IOC recognized the body entrusted to oversee the fraternal order of athletes who have risen o the highest level in sports.

The POA was organized in 2002. Filipinos who competed in the Olympics are automatic regular members. Other members of Olympic delegations may be considered for associate membership.

From the time an obscure sprinter by the name of David Nepomuceno took part in the 1924 Paris Olympic Games, no less than 400 Filipino athletes have seen action in the quadrennial conclave also known as “The Greatest Sports Show on Earth.”
