Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto recognized the city’s budding chess masters as he stressed the importance of investing in sports development.

Sotto shared in a Facebook post the names of winners of various chess tournaments held recently and some photos from the recognition ceremony held on Friday, March 18.

The mayor said it is encouraging that more young people became interested in chess amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Kahit sa gitna ng pandemya, hindi tumigil ang Grassroots Sports Program ng Lungsod Pasig. Online training, non-contact practices, at hanggang unti-unti nang bumabalik ang face-to-face training at competitions. Tuloy-tuloy rin ang allowances ng mga atleta at mga coach,” Sotto said.

“Ang CHESS ay isa sa sports na may mga online competition. Nakakatuwa na dumami ang interesado sa chess nung panahon ng lockdown,” he added.
