The Philippine Sports Commission is now channeling its resources from the country’s participation in the coming Southeast Asian Games to the Asian Games and the Olympics.

Commissioner Salvador Andrada Tuesday said the sports agency has not stopped sending Filipino athletes to training centers overseas despite the absence of their sports in the SEA Games.

He said the PSC has begun to switch its attention from the Myanmar Games to the preparation for the Asian Games next year in Incheon, South Korea.


“We shouldn’t be demoralized by the developments in the SEA Games,” Andrada said. Instead of getting discouraged, we’re now focusing on a bigger event.”

Myanmar included 60 events unknown to Filipino athletes and removed such Olympic sports as  lawn tennis, badminton, gymnastics and water polo from the events roster for the Dec. 11 to 22 Games.
