Inaprubahan na ng Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) ang P3.3 milyong pondo ng bansa para sa Beijing Winter Olympics na gaganapin mula Pebrero 4 hanggang 20.
Ang bukod-tanging kinatawan ng Pilipinas ay ang 21-year old Filipino-American alpine skier na si Asa Miller na lalaban sa slalom at giant slalom event.
Sasamahan si Miller nina chief of mission Bones Floro, Philippine Ski and Snowboard Federation President Jim Palomar Apelar, COVID-19 liaison officer Nikki Cheng, administrative officer Dave Carter, athlete welfare officer Jobert Yu at coach ni Miller na si Will Gregorak.
Ito ang ikalawang pagsabak ni Miller sa Winter Olympics matapos ang 2018 games sa Pyeongchang, South Korea kung saan nakuha niya ang ranking na 70th place sa hanay ng 110 atleta sa giant slalom event.
“I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ll be making my second Olympic appearance in Beijing 2022! Big thank you to everyone who’s helped me on my skiing journey so far,” naunang sinabi ni Miller sa Instagram.
“We are very grateful for the generous support of the POC and PSC in spite of this very difficult time,” pahayag naman ni Floro. “It is our hope that our continuous participation in sporting events brings some hope and national pride to our countrymen.”
