WE GET to see the vibrancy of our city through the strength and sprite of the young people.
There is an enthusiasm that only the Batang Pinoy athletes exude as Mayor Rodrigo Duterte sends them to a happy get-together and a cool respite the Mergrande Beach Resort way last week.
The multi-event sports youngsters from Davao City went home from the weeklong Tagum City Mindanao edition last August with the most number of gold medals.
With the athletes' ages ranging from, 11 years old and not more than 15, the young sports heroes go onwards about showcasing their talents to the bigger, more competitive national Batang Pinoy Games this November in Bacolod City.
Duterte himself is inspired by their gold medal performances, telling them that the city is honored by the sacrifices and efforts they have made. (Sun.Star)
