Adrenaline Solutions co-founder, Coach Noli Ayo, once again spearheads the Online Sports Leadership Program (OSLP). This event is organized by the Philippine Olympians Association (POA) and Ateneo de Davao University.

Coach Noli is no stranger to these types of online events. He is a veteran at facilitating online sports seminars. Last year during the height of COVID lockdowns, Coach Noli gathered athletes, coaches, and sports stakeholders in an online support group dubbed the MWF (Monday-Wedneday-Friday) sessions. These virtual sessions ran thrice a week from March 27 to May 15, 2020. To cap that very transformative experience, the group elevated the bar further by publishing a book called Winning Still, which chronicled their thoughts and experiences during a very difficult period in human history.

Coach Noli is joined in the  Batch 5 of the OSLP as a co-facilitator by Philippine sports icon and POA President, Akiko Thomson-Guevara. Ms. Thomson-Guevara participated in the  Olympics as a swimmer in Seoul 1988, Barcelona 1992, and Atlanta 1996. 

The speakers for the event will be Olympians Mary Joy Tabal, marathon runner in Rio 2016, Ricardo Fortaleza, boxer in Munich 1972, Jasmine Paler Alkhaldi, swimmer in London 2012 and Rio 2016, and Juan Miguel Torres, sailing in Barcelona 1992.

The OSLP is open to sports leaders and coordinators of schools, Local Government Units, and sports associations. The Zoom webinar aims to create linkages for sports directors and coaches to promote a better culture in Philippine sports.
