Matagumpay ang naging kampanya ng Pinoy bobsled team na sumalang sa Alberta Cup Provincial Championship sa Canada.
Ayon kay Buddy Cunanan, ang Philippine National Bobsled Luge and Skeleton Association Inc. chief, pasok sa podium finish sina Rolando Isidro, Jeffrey dela Cruz, Joseph Acosta at Jerby Deriada sa nasabing international meet.
“MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. My bobsledders finished THIRD PLACE in the Alberta Cup Championship, their North American competitve debut. A very impressive accomplishment for a team that entered the season relatively late and, as a consequence, had only 20% run volume (runs on the ice canal) compared to the other teams. It’s a great day for the Philippines and a truly historic accomplishment,” ayon kay Cunanan.
Target ngayon nila na makapasok sa 2022 Winter Olympics sa Beijing, China para maging kauna-unahang Asean country na makatungtong sa prestihiyosong torneo.
“The FIRST bobsled team of the Philippines and ASEAN! On the long road to Beijing 2022! Many thanks to everyone in Calgary who came out to support us. We’ll be back later this year to train with our partners the Alberta Bobsleigh Association!”saad pa ni Cunanan.
