Is it right for PSC & POC to have strict criteria for 2014 Asian Games?

Team_Philippines_SEA_Games_2013Not even a gold medal from the 27th Southeast Asian Games is an assurance for Filipino athletes to make it to the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Philippine Team this September.

Although Philippines’ Incheon Asian Games task force is yet to be formed, and an Asiad chef de mission is yet to be appointed, 2010 Asian chef de mission, Jose Romasanta, gave a hint that a gold medal from the Myanmar SEA Games does not give an automatic ticket for any Filipino athletes to Incheon Asian Games.

He gave a hint that an athlete that can come close to the bronze standard in the Asian Games, the World Championships or the Olympics should go to Incheon.

With Philippines winning only 29 gold, 34 silver and 38 bronze medals at the Myanmar SEA Games, we might be seeing an Asian Games Team Philippines composed of 60 athletes – another very lean delegation for Team Philippines.

This turn of event in Philippine sports has become so frustrating, not only for the fans but most especially for the Filipino athletes.

With the kind of support our government is giving to our athletes, POC and PSC should be the first one to know that a bronze medal in SEA Games is just like an Olympic GOLD!

Our athletes have trained so hard amid very limited financial support from our government, amid low class training centers, amid so many things that can be hurled against our sports officials.

These athletes have represented our country very well in the 27th Southeast Asian Games amid all those stuffs! They deserve A MUCH BETTER TREATMENT from our SPORTS OFFICIALS!

Their SEAG Bronze Medals are much like OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALS with the kind of support our country is giving to them!

If our government and our sports officials have given our athletes extra special treatments, then they have all the rights to demand from our athletes. But since they have not, a BRONZE MEDAL standard is too strict a criterion for these athletes who have sacrificed so much for our country just to represent us well in the international sporting stage!

Here’s what Filipino sports fans have to say about this issue:

Carmel Berba Junio : winning a gold shouldnt be a basis of selection. but sending the best we have should be the case. there are countries who are less fortunate than us but they send athletes for exposure and frienship for our athletes. who knows..given the chance..they could bring home more tourists to vusit the our country. Our athletes are ambassadors of goodwill too.

Jonathan Mozo : hndi naman dapat sobrang strict kase hindi lang naman yung mga nakakuha ng mga medals yung may potential manalo somehow experience din tlga yung kailangan ng mga athletes para mas maging bihasa sila pero paano sila magkkaroon ng experience kung hindi nmn sila nbibigyan ng chance lumaban para sa bansa.

Chris Lopez Larcena : tama lang ang poc at psc sa mahigpit na poagsala sa mga atletang isasabak sa asian games, asian level na to eh,, pero dapat pag sea games lahat ng atleta isabak….

Ivan James Ramos Dizon : Standard? Meron ba ang POC at PSC? Hehe. Paano tataas ang standard ng mga athletes natin kung ginigipit naman nila sa budget diba? Bakit hindi kaya ang standard mismo ng POC at PSC ang ayusin? Kailan pa POC? PSC? Anong standard-standard na naman yan? Paki-explain!

Khaloi Opiasa Madarcos : Tama ang desisyon nila na magpadala lng ng mga atletang makkprodyus ng medalya pero ang tanong ano ang ginawa nila para mapataas ang bilang ng mga atletang makakpgbigay ng medalya? Dapat naitrain tlga ng maayos ang mga atleta, walang atletang di naghangad n makapgrpodyus ng medal pero kung kulang nmn sa pasilidad maaring nagsasayang lang tlga pero kung madaming pasilidad aba e d mas malaki ang chances.

Solo Lang : Ang sakin lang po,,bgyan lahat ng chance ung iba,kc my mga athleta ng ilang yrs na xa team kaso nd bnibgyan ng chance para ipakita dn nya skills nya..kc tru experience dun xa madevelop,kc ung tintingnan lang nla ay ang mga athleta na my mga records na,.cla lahat ang pinapalaro,why nt na bgyan,.lalo ang mga indvdual events..then dpat mag fucos din dun sa dvelopmental pool kc dun mgstart ang mga athleta bgo papasok as national team..kc mas mgnda kc magstart tlaga sa baba pataas…katulad ng sa schl nd nakapag aral kung nd magstrt sa grade school..hndi ka naman pwde makapnta agad sa hgh schl at college agad… One thng more.,dapat din bgyan pansin,ang mga coaches-becoz..BEHIND THOSE SUCCESS, ACHIVEMENTS AND TRIUMPH OF AN ANTHLETE ARE BECOZ OF THE SACRIFICES EFFORT OF THEIR COACHES AND TRAINORS.,Na nd lang po athltes ang bgyan ng Pansin…dapat maging strck dn sa mga coaches and trainors-..Maraming salamat po..Mbuhay ang Athletang Pilipino-Mbuhay Pilipinas!

Jholan Lederas Francisco : sana lang ha!! ganun din cla last sea games!! kesyo ang papadala lng daw un maari mag ka medal. anyareeee??? im not against any athletes peo sana naman if may ganyan na patakaran maging fair sa lahat. kung di kaya mag ka medal adeh huwag padala..kung gagastusan ang sarili adeh gowwww!! ang nangyayari kc palakasan na lng din!! aba kawawa naman un mga atleta na talagang deserving mabigyan ng chance..

Rommel Riva Moreno : masyado naman ang POC at PSC. bakit mataas ang standard nila kung may kakayahan naman magka medalya ang ibang atleta! ang sabhin nila, mag titipid sila sa expenditures papuntang korea!!

Luis Cruz II : Dapat bago piliin ang mga atleta dapat dumadaan sila sa screening, kase may iba jan na hindi nanalo sa ibang international or local competitions pero meron talagang potential para manalo. At sana i-enhance nila ang kakayanan para gumaling ang atleta ng bansa..

    They should maybe even make it only athletes who can equal the bronze medal standard at the last Asian Games can go. Even if u win a gold at sea level doesnt mean you have the capability to win a medal in a much larger competition.

    saying athletes that have made gold at sea games can goto asian games is not much different from saying anyone who wins a gold at the PNG should goto SEA Games.

      what Romasanta said was “a SEAG Gold is not an assurance to have an automatic ticke to Asian Games. he added that athletes who come close to bronze standard in Asian Games, Olympic Games and World Championship should go to Incheon. meaning, their main criterion right now might be at least a 5th or a 4th place in Asian, Olympics or World Championship levels. Which left athletics with Cid as the only possible qualifier for Philippines Athletics?

        Why only Cid as the only possible qualifier?

        We had 6 gold medalists at the SEA Games. One was a relay team.

          remember? gold medal is not an assurance. athletics is a measurable sport. so it’s pretty easy to tell which athletes are registering Asian Games bronze medal time/distance. i guess none of them are even in the top five of the Asian ranking. (correct me if im wrong with this one). which leaves zero athlete from athletics for Asian Games?

            I would say sure medalists is Cray, Cid and Dagmil. The relay team probably 50/50 as the Thai Junior team just ran 3.08.89 at asian juniors.

            Griffey and Nars are the next strong picks.

            Ulboc and Guarte are very far from 5th place.

            Riezel, EJ and Marestella have good chances of qualifying.

    But we must not forget the vital role of NFs of each sport or NSAs as we call it here in the PH. A columnist of PH Star wrote that better-run NSAs or NFs were the one that excelled in the latest SEAG.

      That was the Dean who wrote that. How do you co-relate better run NSA to better performance when it can be a number of factors.

    The only criteria for PSC & POC for qualification in the Asian Games is if the athletes & officials are close to them, an NSA who supports them and kisses &%$. It happened to our team despite being a back to back World Champion and World Record holder. I don’t believe in the system anymore, I think they are the rust in the system and they are slowly eating everyone out. They have no regard for the sacrifices that the athletes had done, instead they will do what they think is best for them to stay in power.
