The fire in the recent 30th Southeast Asian games had barely been extinguished, but the Filipino athletes who did the country pride are already bracing themselves up a bigger stake ahead, earned their seats in the coming 2020 XXXII Games of the Olympiad set in Tokyo.
As what it did in the last edition of the biennial conclave the country hosted last November 30 to December 11, the SCOOP On Air Forum will be focusing on our athletes’ bid starting on Thursday’s edition at the The Manila Times Television Studio.
Philippine boxing team’s coaches Pat Gaspi and Ronald Chavez as well as their taekwondo counterpart Igor Mella will have the honor of discussing their teams’ plan during the resumption of the Forum following a three-week hiatus in the observance of the Christmas Holidays.
SEA Games gold medalists Samuel “Butch” Morrison and Jocel Lyn Ninobla, individual winners in male kyorugi and female poomsae in taekwondo, respectively, will accompany coach Mella in the 10 a.m. session.
Also invited to grace Thursday’s Talakayan is wushu double gold medal winner Agatha Wong.
No one from among the seven boxers who romped off with a gold medal each in their sport can make it to the Forum, organized by the Sports Communicators Organization of the Philippines and supported by The Manila Times publications chairman emeritus, Dr. Dante A. Ang.
The boxers, headed by world AIBA champion Nesthy Petecio, according to ABAP secretary general Ed Picson, are currently quartered in lieu of their coming training schedule in Thailand starting next week.
