Adrenaline Solutions Co-founder Coach Noli Ayo and Akiko Thomson-Guevara, President of the Philippine Olympian Association (POA), return as facilitators for Batch 6 of the Online Sports Leadership Program (OSLP), which starts this February.
The OSLP conference is open to sports leaders and coordinators from educational institutions, local government units, and non-governmental organizations, who can help promote and improve the overall quality of sport in the Philippines. It’s a partnership between Ateneo de Davao University and the POA. The online event features prominent Filipino Olympians who share their experiences in life, sports and the Olympics.
Batch 6 will feature a new set of talented athletes such as Adeline Dumapong-Ancheta, 2000 Sydney Paralympics, who won the Bronze in Powerlifting; Lydia de Vega-Mercado OLY, Asia’s fastest woman who joined 1984 LA and 1988 Seoul Olympics; Rene “Guy” Concepcion OLY, a swimmer who participated in 1988 Seoul; and Onyok Velasco, who won Silver for boxing in the 1996 Atlanta Games.
While the online conference is targeted at sports leaders and coordinators, the POA plans to share excerpts of the recordings of the sharing of the Olympians through a podcast that will be released this year. The highlight of the OSLP program is the first of its kind “OSLP National Summit” that is set to take place in Puerto Princesa, Philippines in October this year.
