4th Asian Beach Games in 2013 awarded to Philippines

THE Philippines was awarded the hosting rights of the 4th Asian Beach Games in 2013 and Cebu is eyed as one of the possible venues of the games.

Cebu City Sports Commission (CCSC) head Edward Hayco said they are open to taking the lead should Cebu be considered as the main hub of the multi-sporting meet.

The Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) and the Olympic Council of Asia will be making their rounds to inspect the possible venues next month. The other provinces that are being eyed are Bohol, Negros Oriental and Siquijor. Also aggressive in their intention to host are Camarines Sur, Bataan, Zambales and Siargao.

    Congrats too to Nonong!!!! Mabuhay po Kayo!
