PSC’s “Rise Up! Shape Up!” rounds up milestones in Women in Sports development

THE Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), through the Women in Sports program, stays committed to women and sports development nationwide through its various programs over the last six years.

To celebrate the achievements of PSC-Women in Sports, PSC’s web series “Rise Up! Shape Up!” dedicates its July 1 episode to feature the milestones and key accomplishments in nurturing the country’s sporting culture, and women’s talent in sports.

“People often think that sports are mainly for men. But recent sports successes are a testament that women have the strength and determination to win in sports and life. We are happy that through our programs we get to encourage women to appreciate sports and even take it up professionally,” PSC-WIS oversight Commissioner Celia Kiram said.

“It is fulfilling to be able to contribute to women and sports development, especially at the grassroots level because we want equitable opportunities for women in sports. We envision a stronger presence of women in whatever sporting field there is, locally and internationally. We at the PSC-Women in Sports also want to see more and more girls and women enjoying a healthier lifestyle through fitness and sports,” Comm. Kiram added.

Ms. Kiram cited the Women’s Martial Arts Festival which gathered over 15,000 girls and women to be in the field of martial arts. The special webisode will air at 7 PM tomorrow and will have a rundown of the agency’s Zumbarangay Pilipinas, K-Isport, and Gintong Gawad Awards.

“We are firm in our commitment to promote sports to achieving holistic wellness–from physical, mental, and emotional. And we dared to deliver on this commitment through Rise Up! Shape Up! giving our online audience access to information on physical fitness and sports appreciation.” the lady commissioner concluded.
