AFC CHALLENGE CUP
Pres. Aquino invited to
RP vs. Mongolia tiff

BY NIDA BUENAFE

Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta is hopeful that President Benigno Aquino III could find time to grace the RP Azkals vs. Mongolia match-up at the Panaad Sports Stadium in Bacolod City on Feb. 9.

Araneta has coordinated with the Philippine Sports Commission on Monday about the letter of invitation to the President.

Should the president grace the event, he will lead the entire Filipino nation in supporting the Azkals against Mongolia in its opening duel in the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup.

ABAP targets
2012 Olympic gold

Winning a gold medal in next year’s 2012 London Olympics remains a top priority of the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines.

The organization is eyeing bigger tournaments for its pool of talents, such as the Olympic Qualifying in Azerbaijan, a former Soviet Satellite, in September and in Kazakhstan next year.

All quarterfinalists in Azerbaijan will earn Olympic slots while only the gold and silver medalists in Kazakhstan will head to London.
