POC chief calls for unity among all stakeholders,as hosting of SEA Games go full blast




Let’s unite for the successful staging of the 30th Southeast Asian Games , lets unite in supporting all the Filipino athletes.

Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) president Abraham Tolentino has appealed to  all Filipinos to ‘stand as one” as the country will be hosting different athletes from our Southeast Asian neighbors.


POC Chief reminded everybody that this is the 4th time the Philippines will be hosting this regional meet after 1981, 1991 and 2005, and the next hosting will not come until 10 or 12 years from now.

“Remember, the next time we will host this could be in 2030. So, let’s not pull each other down. This is for the country,” he said during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum.
The first few days was marked with missteps by local organizers meeting the demands of a multi-nation event, including accommodation, transportation and other basic needs of foreign delegates.

“We all make mistakes that’s why we should work together. Those in the social media, the netizens, let’s move on first with our hosting,” said the congressman and chief of Philippine cycling Abraham Tolentino
“It’s normal,” he said of what he described as minor glitches, leading to complaints regarding the food being provided to the athletes, and accreditations with mistaken identities.
“I’ve experienced that myself,” Tolentino said during the forum.

Tolentino urged everybody to rally behind the national athletes and the hosting in general.
“Let’s just focus on our athletes. With this, my statement will be not only for us to ‘we win as one’ but ‘we stand as one’ in hosting this SEA Games,’” he added.
“All these problems have solutions and they are being addressed and being solved,” Tolentino said.
