POC approves Camacho proposal

Published

By Nick Giongco

The Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) has given the thumbs-up sign to 2018 Asian Games chief of mission Julian Camacho to screen athletes eyeing to make the delegation to the Aug. 18-Sept. 2 sportsfest in Indonesia.

“The POC approved it,” Camacho said yesterday, referring to his proposal that only silver and gold medalists from the recent Southeast Asian Games earn automatic berths to Indonesia instead of the old practice of including even the bronze medal winners.

“This is a way of making sure that those who will end up going will be there to contend for medals,” said Camacho.

Of course, there are other ways  for athletes to make the team for Indonesia and Camacho insists that “they have to fare well in Asian-level events (in the coming months) for them to be considered,” said Camacho.

Meanwhile, Camacho and Jacel Kiram, president of pencak silat and deputy chief of mission to Indonesia, are travelling to Jakarta to attend the CDM meeting on Dec, 12 and 13.

    AFP Acquires State-of-the-Art UAVs

    It is encouraging to note that the AFP will finally acquire a highly capable state-of-the-art unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will have a “game-changing” impact on the war against terror, especially for military operations similar to the ongoing battle for Marawi.

    Israel, the world pioneer in UAVs (yes, even before the American started using them), is now selling us their latest and most capable UAV, which is priceless for our many military operations and missions. The latest news on the acquisition of this system shows (https://www. update. ph/2017/08/ph-to-acquire-4-israeli-unmanned-aerial-vehicles/19847; http://maxdefense. blogspot. com/2017/08/ philippine-air-force-to-procure-elbits.html) past operational tragedies like the Mamasapano Massacre and the costly operations (in life and materiel) in Basilan and Sulu can now be avoided by our war planners.
