Bong Go joins groundbreaking of Taytay sports complex
Senator Bong Go traveled to Taytay, Rizal on November 18 to grace the groundbreaking of Taytay Sports Complex.
In his speech, Go lauded the provincial and municipal governments for supporting local athletes.
“As a sports enthusiast myself, I greatly appreciate what you are doing for the athletes of your locality. They need projects like this sports complex and supportive officials like the ones you have here,” he said.
The sports complex, located at an old dumpsite in Barangay Muzon, will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, such as an open athletic field, Olympic-size pools, and covered basketball courts, as laid out in the local government development plan. Five hectares of the thirteen-hectare old dumpsite is allotted for the facilities.
The provincial government of Rizal decided to build the sports complex in Taytay after ceding the Marikina Sports Center to Marikina City, which used to be a municipality of the province.
Go said that athletes have long been in need of adequate support from the government.
“Matagal nang kailangan ng ating mga atleta ang suporta. Napakarami sa ating mga kabataan ang magaling sa sports, ngunit iilan lang ang nagiging professional athletes dahil hindi po natutustusan ang kanilang mga pangangailangan, kulang ang training at walang access sa maayos na facilities,” he said.
