Diaz upbeat as PSC launches PSI

RIO Olympics 2016 weightlifting silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz is upbeat about the Philippine Sports Institute (PSI) that will be launched at 3 p.m. today at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Zamboanga City's Diaz will be among the special guests who will lead the oath of support.

Diaz said, "Para sa akin po maganda etong ginawa ng PSC (Philippine Sports Commission) na nagtayo ng PSI para sa pagbabago sa sports simula sa grassroots hanggang sa elite athletes. Yon naman talaga ang kailangan naming mga athletes."

Meanwhile, three-time Olympian jumper Marestella Torres Sunang is confident that Philippine sports is heading in the right direction.

“Whatever the new plans of PSI for the athletes, alam ko para sa ikakabuti ng sports especially for us athletes.” (Marianne Abalayan, SunStar Davao)
