Organizers of the 2016 Central Visayas Athletic Association (CVIRAA) on February 7-13 said the City of Naga, some 21 kilometers south of Cebu City, is ready to host the regional sports event. Zenaida Gocotano, Department of Education (DepEd) Cebu City sports coordinator, said the city’s newly-constructed swimming pool can now be used for the meet that gathers the region’s best high school and elementary athletes. Earlier, DepEd officials feared the venue for the swimming event in Naga won’t be finished in time for the meet. They considered the Cebu City Sports Center as an alternative venue for the swimming events. The City of Naga has just completed the construction of two sporting facilities, the Naga City Sports Complex and the Olypmic-sized swimming pool.
