Palarong Pambansa 2008

The 2008 Palarong Pambansa formally opened Sunday, April 20, at the newly-refurbished Ramon V. Mitra Sports Complex in Puerto Princesa City touted as the country’s sports tourism capital.

The traditional colorful opening rite was done late in the afternoon to spare the athletes, officials and guests from the scorching summer heat that proved fatal to two officials last year. The weeklong national competition for elementary and high school students will feature competitions in athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, chess, football, gymnastics, sepak takraw, softball, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo tennis, volleyball, archery, boxing, and arnis.
