THE impressive performance of the four weightlifters was acknowledged by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan through a resolution congratulating in the recently concluded Philippine Powerlifting (PHPL) Meet held last month in Mandaluyong City.

The resolution, authored by Fifth District Board Member Nicholi Jan Sison, cited the performances of Joselle Gutierrez of Barangay Poblacion Central, Veronica Camacho of Barangay Paldit, Jemar Opilas of Barangay Cauringan and July Palaming of Barangay Asan Sur, all of Sison town.

Gutierrez won 3rd place for men’s 100 kg Novice Division, Camacho was 2nd place for women’s 52 kg Open Division, Opilas was 1st place for men’s 60 kg Novice Division and Palaming bagged 1st place for women’s 52 kg Novice Division.

“Their winning in this national competition should inspire many young Pangasinenses to develop a keen interest in powerlifting which is slowly emerging as a popular sport, especially among the youth,” the resolution said.

Their outstanding performances deserve to be commended for the honor and recognition they have brought to the province, it also said. (PhilStar Wire Service/ECV)
