The Philippine Swimming League (PSL) continues its expansion as it linked with Philippine Association of Maritime Institutions (PAMI) in an effort to promote swimming among college students.
PSL President Susan Papa served as speaker during the 40th PAMI Annual Convention held in Bacolod City where she introduced the 2015 World Summer University Games scheduled in July in Gwangju, South Korea.
“The Universiade is open to all college students ages 17 to 28 years old currently enrolled. Let PAMI help me democratize swimming all over the Philippines, make swimming a sports for all,” said Papa.
Papa informed the PAMI members that the 2017 Universiade will be held in Taiwan and the 2019 edition will be in Brazil.
”Open swimming to less fortunate ones, not exclusive but open to every citizen of the country. Let PAMI help to win the long drought of medals for the Asian Games and Olympics,” added Papa.
The PSL is the national sports swimming association for universities and colleges accredited by the Federation of School Sports Association of the Philippines—an internationally affiliated member of Federation of International Sports University.
“We are happy and thankful to PSL President Susan Papa for sharing her time and expertise as guest speaker during the PAMI 40th Annual Convention at VMA Global College, Bacolod City on the topic on National Swimming League,” PAMI President Dr. Elizabeth Salabas.
