Some pretty impressive results in Melbourne, Australia on March 12. Despite the #COVID Outbreak. From Two Singapore Athletics athletes in Middle Distance runners.

Chui Linh Goh, 27 previously known as a sprint hurdler stepped up to 800m to clock the #1 time in SEA This year for 800. 2:11.90. Just outside her 2:11.66 PB from last year at Asian Champs.

NCR, NCAA, and Palarong Pambansa Sports Events Cancelled for 2020

In light of the NCR meet being indefinitely suspended. Two more major competitions also have been canned. The Philippines NCAA Athletics Meet and the Palarong Pambansa. With host Marikina pulling out it now casts the Palaro hosting in 2020 into serious doubt.

The DEPED had announced they would push through with the meet Covid or not. But with cases of Covid reported near Marikina the Mayor has now withdrawn hosting. This also leaves in question the 2020 UAAP Athletics scheduled to start on March 21. Which has already been postponed 6 times whether in fact, this will also follow suit? In the best interest of the young athlete’s health with Covid cases climbing from 10 to 20 in the Philippines this week.

Breaking: Palarong Pambansa Sports Events 2020 will no longer be held in Marikina City this May

The Palarong Pambansa 2020 will no longer be held in Marikina City this May, Mayor Marcelino “Marcy” Teodoro announced on Monday; less than an hour after confirming a case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the city.

“Putting the safety of the athletes and their families first, Marikina City Mayor Marcy Teodoro suspends the Palarong Pambansa 2020 in May because of the threat posed by COVID-19,” read the short press statement from the Marikina Local Government Unit (Marikina LGU).

In January 2020, the Department of Education announced that the annual sports meet for elementary and high school students will be held in the Shoe Capital of the Philippines after the withdrawal of the original host Occidental Mindoro following the damages it faced brought by Typhoon Tisoy.

Teodoro earlier confirmed that an 86-year-old male living in Marikina City, who recently traveled to South Korea, tested positive for COVID-19. The mayor ordered massive disinfection in the city; noting that a memorandum for the strict compliance of disinfection in schools, malls, and other public spaces will be issued immediately.

2020 NCR Athletics Meet “Indefinitely Suspended” due to the CORONA VIRUS! (March 8)

The NCR Meet which serves at the qualifier for the Greater Manila Region was “Indefinitely Suspended” presumably due to the #Coronavirus#COVID19. There have been no announcements for a rescheduled date. This comes on the cuff of the NCAA Athletics Philippines Being postponed from March 17 to April 1.

NCR meet was due to be staged at Pasig tomorrow. But the participants have been advised due to greater health concerns the meet will not push through. 

ill when? No dates were specified. When something is postponed usually new dates are given in Memos. I believe the better terminology here would be ‘Indefinite suspension’.

Meaning we can only presume the game will be held in the ‘time frame bracket allocated’ of the next 2 months before the staging of the Palarong Pambansa 2020 providing that the Palaro is also not canceled or indefinitely suspended due to the Covid Outbreak.

Since a lot of NCR qualified athletes also join NCAA and UAAP in High school divisions. The re-scheduling of the NCR meet cannot conflict with these meets.

The subtle hint in the Memo is that its the equivalent of this conversation ‘we will call you some other time’ with no exact details but just being vague.

This now brings into a big question as Marikina which is even closer to Cainta which is due to hold the Palarong Pambansa 2020 in 2 months. It is right next to Cainta (as a stated area of concern in Memo). And it seems unlikely Covid is going to clear up by then.

Just received this memo (see attachment below for more details)

Confirmed po cancelled para and advanced games. Kindly order your advance team to Go back to there divisions for their safety po. Salamat
