Pinoy SEA Games medalists get cash incentives

Pinoy SEA Games medalists get cash incentives”

Duterte awarded medals and cash incentives to the Filipino medalists in the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur last month.

Duterte hopes the spirit of goodwill and sportsmanship continues when the Philippines hosts the 30th SEA Games.

President Rodrigo Duterte poses for a photo with SEA Games athletes who won gold medals. I congratulate you all, especially the medalists, for the accomplishment that brought honor to our country.

The cash incentives come from the PSC as mandated by Republic Act 10699 or the National Athletes, Coaches, and Trainers Benefits and Incentives Act.

CEBUANA Olympian and Southeast Asian Games gold medalist Mary Joy Tabal couldn't express her happiness when she finally met with President Rodrigo Duterte at the Rizal Hall of the Malacañang Palace yesterday.

Each gold medalist received ₱300,000, each silver medalist ₱150,000, and each bronze medalist ₱60,000.

All the medalists will also be given presidential citations by the President.

"Wear those medals with pride", Medialdea told the athletes, whom he praised for their "fire and ferocity" and their great ability to deal with pressure.

Under the law, coaches are entitled to get cash incentives equivalent to half of the amount the winning athletes will receive.

The President also welcomed the country's hosting of the 2019 SEA Games, lauding this year's host country, Malaysia.

Duterte called on the PSC to recruit other potential athletes nationwide that will cater Filipinos' competitiveness "here and overseas". Thus, I enjoined the Philippine Sports Commission to widen its scope and recruit nationwide, look for the non-traditional places. "Look for members of indigenous tribes and out-of-school youths".

"Let us give them a chance to hone their talent and live up to their fullest potentials", he added.
