MARIKINA CITY, 04 August 2023 (SDN) — Elementary volleyball players, Boys Team, of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) have struck gold in the 63rd Palarong Pambansa 2023.
AS a winning team they stand to receive Php70,000 incentive reward for their gold medal performance.
The volleyball team defeated their rivals from Region XI (Davao), which earned a silver medal for their losing effort.
Hamid A. Onig, a student of Simuay Junction Central Elementary School (SJCES) earned the title of the Best Player of the Game. SJCES belongs to Maguindanao Division II, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao del Norte.
The Volleyball Finals was staged at the Paaralang Elementarya ng Industry Valley (Industrial Valley Elementary School, IVES) Gymnasium.
Earlier, Sports Director Dr. Yusoph “Thong” Amino of the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (BARMM-MBHTE) cited goals of the Bangsamoro delegation to the Palaro hosted by Marikina City.
“BARMM delegates’ main objectives are to establish friendship and fight for gold in the National Games,” he said. The Palaro was suspended for three years — 2020, 2021, 2022 — because of the coronavirus pandemic that broke out from Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, in December 2019 and spread across the world. The virus killed nearly seven million people globally.
Amino said BARMM winning athletes who win gold medal will receive from MBHTE a total of Php50 cash incentive for individual sport, Php10,000 for winning coach; and Php70,000 for team sport. BARMM has only two team sports events — Volleyball Elementary Boys and Football Elementary Boys.
As the Finals of the Palaro rolled on today, BARMM has other winners as well:
They are: Badminton (Boys) Secondary, Gold Medal, Jamal Rahmat D. Pandi; Swimming (Para Games), 2 Silver Medal, 1 Bronze by John Rey Bonoan; Wrestling, Girls, Angel T. Apolinario of Lamitan City, Basilan.
Hopefully, more medals would be won by the athletes from the Bangsamoro region schools. (/)
