Team Philippines Chef de Mission to the Vietnam Southeast Asian Games Ramon Fernandez will be the special solo guest Tuesday in the online edition of the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum.

Fernandez, a commissioner of the Philippine Sports Commission, is going to talk about the recent snag in the training and preparation of the Philippine contingent to the biennial meet set Nov. 21 to Dec. 2, and where the Filipinos are the reigning, defending overall champion.

The training of the Philippine delegation in a supposed bubble starting on April 15 was recently cancelled after the entire National Capital Region (NCR) and adjoining provinces of Bulacan, Laguna, Rizal, and Cavite were put under an Enhance Community Quarantine (ECQ) due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.

The status within the NCR Plus area has since been modified to MECQ (Moderate Enhance Community Quarantine), although mass gathering, training, and contact sports are still prohibited.

Presented by San Miguel Corporation (SMC), MILO, Amelie Hotel Manila, Braska Restaurant, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), the session starts at 10 a.m.

The weekly Forum, presented by Smart and Upstream Media as the official webcast partner, is livestreamed via the PSA Facebook page fb.com/PhilippineSportswritersAssociation and also shared by Radyo Pilipinas 2 Facebook page.
