Juico heads AAA youth commission
Philippine Amateur Track and Field Association (Patafa) president Philip Ella Juico has been appointed chair of the School and Youth Commission of the Asian Athletics Association (AAA).
This was confirmed during the 83rd AAA council meeting held recently at Solaire Resort and Casino where 20 athletics heads representing 20 countries and territories across Asia attended.
