PSC oversight commissioner for Visayas Ramon Fernandez said that they will be sending more equipment to the academy.

“We initially donated 23 rubber landing mats on Monday. We are expected to send more equipment to get them started on their grassroots sports development,” Fernandez said.

The gym at Labangon Elementary School, which is set to open soon, will be renovated. Showers, locker rooms, and other amenities will be installed as part of the renovation.

According to Fernandez, the PSC will provide a complete gymnastics set, which will include balance beams, high, horizontal, and parallel bars, pommel horses, flex floor systems, spotting blocks, trampolines, vaults, and springboards.

Meanwhile, he vowed to send the equipment to the province once Manila will be placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) as tasked by PSCChairman William Ramirez.

“With about 12,000 students attending these schools, we hope that this new indoor arena will be a rich source of grassroots sports talent in the region, and develop the next Carlos Yulo who will represent the country,” Fernandez said.
