THE 30th SEA Games set to start officially on Nov. 30 will be an emotional one for Rep. Mike Romero.
Though he’s not the biggest star in the Philippine polo team, the party-list congressman is dedicating his performance in the biennial meet to his late son, Miguel.
“I’ll dedicate all our games to Miguel, he should have been playing here,” Romero during the inauguration of the Bamboo Pavilion inside the vast Miguel Romero Polo Field over the weekend.
Miguel passed away on Dec. 14, 2017 at 22.
Action started Sunday at the nearby Hacienda Bigaa, with Team Philippines dropping an 8-8.5 loss to Brunei in the 0-2 event.
Romero was grateful to the stakeholders – the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC), Philippine SEA Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) and the Philippine Sports Commission – for the realization of the family’s dream.
