The province of Antique is set to put up a sports academy that will serve as the center of sports development among Antiqueños.

This was revealed by Governor Rhodora Cadiao over a phone interview with IMT News.

Cadiao said the Department of Education through Undersecretary Tonisito Umali and Senator Loren Legarda have signified corresponding support for the project as it will include the construction of a building near the Binirayan Center and a continuous food, lodging and training allowances for identified athlete-recipients of training grants.

She added that athletes from far-flung towns can continue their studies in nearby educational institutions and have their daily trainings inside the academy as it will also serve as their home.

The Antique Sports Academy is a brainchild and priority project of Governor Cadiao.IMT
