PSC moves to assist athletes hit by Typhoon Ulysses

The Philippine Sports Commission will come to the aid of athletes affected by Typhoon Ulysses.

In a statement released on Sunday, the sports agency said it has coordinated with the different national sports associations on the status of their member athletes following Ulysses, which battered a large part of Luzon two weeks ago, and financial assistance is being readied.

The PSC said it has received reports of athletes and coaches, numbering 57 from nine sports, as of this writing, being evacuated or lost their homes due to torrential rains and flash floods in Metro Manila and nearby areas.

“It might not be substantial but we will do our best we can to help them,” said PSC Chairman William Ramirez, who underscored that the processing of the financial assistance is being expedited so as to reach those affected the soonest.

“We will have this rolled out the soonest. We are just waiting for the final report from the NSA affairs so we can finalize everything,” added PSC Executive Director Atty. Guillermo Iroy Jr.

The aid for athletes hit by Typhoon Ulysses is a continuation of the PSC’s commitment to looking after its ranks despite the budgetary constraints presented to it by the coronavirus pandemic. — MASM
