Verdeflor urged participants to seek wisdom and strength from God, and aim for the top honor in every competition.

“Governor Marañon has always been supportive of the Negrense athletes,” he added.

Verdeflor said that several Negrense athletes who are products of the Negros First Sports Program have won medals in international competitions, including the just-concluded Southeast Asian Games, especially in boxing and taekwondo.(PNA)
