Palarong Pambansa successfully opens

Koronadal, South Cotabato (24 April) -- Bystanders and visitors witnessed the opening of Palarong Pambansa 2007 in the city of Koronadal with the delegations from different regions of the country.

The opening ceremony of the said event was attended by local officials of Koronadal City and South Cotabato led by Koronadal City Mayor Fernando Miguel and South Cotabato Governor Daisy Avance Fuentes. Some also of the high-ranking officials from the Department of education were noticed including the representative of DepED Secretary Jesli Lapus, Undersecretary Ramon Bacani and Undersecretary for Finance and administration Teodosio Sangil.

One of the preparations set by the local officials to provide services and to ensure the health of all concerned is the deployment and alerting of medical team and ambulances in their area of jurisdiction.

After the parade, Philippine Sports Commission chairman William Ramirez, represented President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in the opening ceremonies held at the South Cotabato Sports Complex.

According to Ramirez winning is not only the key factor of the Palarong Pambansa, he said it is also important especially for the athletes to preserve the importance of "patience and sportsmanship" despite the struggles athletes have undergone to join and to be included in the said national sports event.
