“We’re very thankful to all swimmers and to all club’s managers who have joined our tournament. We assured everyone, even non-COPA teams can easily play the coming COPA tournament next month,” said COPA Secretary General and tournament director Chito Rivera, who was joined by former national coach Richard Luna in the awarding ceremony.

Both Mmess. Diamante and Obebe will try to carry on the momentum to Vigan, Ilocos Sur as members of the stacked National Capital Region swim team for the much-awaited return of Batang Pinoy national finals on Dec. 17-22.
