Hall of Fame panel starts tough job


    NOMINATONS for the latest Philippine Sports Hall of Fame rites will be accepted starting next month, according to Philippine Sports Commission Chairman Butch Ramirez, who chairs the Philippine Sports Hall of Fame (PSHOF) 2020 Committee.

    “This is good that we met early so we have ample time to study the nominations,” Ramirez said as he welcome the members of the screening committee composed of Games and Amusement Board Chairman Abraham Mitra, Philippine Olympic Committee Secretary-General Atty. Edwin Gastanes, Integrated Cycling Federation of the Philippines Secretary-General Atty. Avelino Sumagui, UAAP Executive Director Atty. Rene Saguisag Jr., and SEA Games gold medalist and Philippine Olympians Association President Akiko Thomson Guevara.

    The HOF or Republic Act No. 8757 enshrines Filipino athletes, coaches, and trainors who have brought honor and pride to the country in their career, and exhibited exemplary character.
