The 2013 Palarong Pambansa kicked off in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, with almost 20,000 athletes, coaches, officials, DepEd personnel and guests attending the opening rites at the Gov. Mariano Perdices Memorial Stadium yesterday.

The ceremony started with a parade of 17 regional delegates coming from different parts of the country, including the 495 athletes from Negros Occidental, who are donning the colors of Western Visayas or Region VI, a press release from the Capitol PIO said.

Guest speaker Richie Garcia, chairman of the Philippine Sports Commission, encouraged all the participants to give their best during the competition, and said  “Life is a series of wins and losses and excellence cannot be achieved overnight but rather, it is a product of practice and unparallel determination”.
