• PBA says Olympic entry now realistic


    THE Philippine Badminton Association (PBA) said that Filipino players can qualify in the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympics after national players Peter Gabriel Magnaye and Paul Jefferson Vivas won the men’s open doubles in Swiss International. “As what I’ve been telling everyone, there’s life in badminton. It only means that we can excel internationally in this sports,” said PBA Secretary-General Alfredo ‘Albee’ Benitez. “That title will inspire us in the PBA to work harder and support badminton development.” The PBA is now eyeing to send the national team to Badminton World Federation sanctioned tournaments starting late this year.
