Deputy House Speaker Eric Martinez expounds on the latest bill he filed in Congress pertaining to Philippine sports in the online session of the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum this Tuesday (August 31).

Martinez, who represents the second district of Valenzuela City, will be talking about the establishment of the Philippine Olympian Memorial, which honors, commemorates, and immortalizes Filipino Olympians who have distinguished themselves in their particular field of sports.

The House bill comes in the aftermath of the country’s most successful campaign ever in the Olympiad, which saw the Philippines win a total of four medals, including a first ever gold courtesy of weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz.

The public sports program presented by San Miguel Corporation (SMC), MILO, Amelie Hotel Manila, Braska Restaurant, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) starts at 10 a.m.
