WARMEST CONGRATULATIONS to our very own Eleazar Barba Jr. for winning silver medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games for Mountain Biking – Men’s Downhill competition.
Barba, along with other athletes from Dumaguete, bring pride and honor to the people of our city consistent with our thrust to support and develop sports in the grassroots level.
While the city government could not allocate funds for the training and development of national athletes if they belong to National Sports Associations with financial assistance from the Philippines Sports Commission, Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, like a true patron of sports, has always been providing support to many athletes from Dumaguete City using his personal funds as his share and assistance for their fare, allowances, logistics and incentives when they compete to local, regional, national and overseas events. These include our local archers, football teams, baseball/softball teams, basketball teams, dragon boat teams among other athletes.
And our very own Eleazer Barba will certainly receive the recognition and incentive he deserves from Mayor Remollo and the City Government.
Same recognition will also be bestowed to all our local sport heroes for representing with distinction our country and city in the ongoing 30th Southeast Asian Games.
