Sports legislation in the Philippines takes centerstage in the National Sports Summit 2021’s 13th session with Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation president and Philippine Reclamation Authority Chairman of the Governing Board Atty. Alberto C. Agra this Wednesday, May 12.
The sports leader and decorated lawyer, who also heads the Obstacle Sports Federation Asia Pacific and serves as the Chairman of the Governing Board of the Philippine Reclamation Authority, puts law and sports into focus as the nationwide online sports-fora opens its fourth batch.
“The sphere of sports legislation in our country is a much-needed area of discussion and sports educators, athletes, coaches, and local government units should take an active role on. We are beyond privileged to have the POSF leader and PRA chair of the governing board himself to guide us through,” said Philippine Sports Commission chairman William Ramirez.
Atty. Agra is also the Deputy Chef de Mission of the national team for the upcoming 2021 Vietnam Southeast Asian Games.
The National Sports Summit 2021 has featured both local and international sports figures including United States Sports Academy President Dr. T.J. Rosandich, International Basketball Federation Medical Commission member Dr. Raul Canlas, swimming icon and Philippine Olympians Association head Akiki Thomson-Guevara, and 2000 Sydney Paralympics medalist Adeline Dumapong- Ancheta among others.
