Three sports get venues for in-person training at RMSC

/ 05:10 AM October 23, 2021

Unlike other sports which chose to camp out in bubbles outside Metro Manila to train, billiards, judo and wushu opted to sit it out and wait for their home venues to reopen.

Though the pandemic is not yet over, these sports don’t have to wait much longer and can start preparing in earnest for the Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) in Vietnam next year.


The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) said on Friday it will open by next month selected facilities at Rizal Memorial Sports Complex (RMSC) and Philsports to the national team members for in-person training.

PSC chief of staff and national training director Marc Velasco said the building that housed billiards, judo and wushu is “98 percent” ready for training for the Hanoi Games.


“We just have to be sure that we are in compliance with the health protocols by the IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases),” Velasco said during the PSC Hour on Sports Radio.

Meanwhile, sports like track and field, boxing and karate are now encamped in Baguio City for their respective bubble training. Muay thai and kickboxing are in La Trinidad, Benguet.
