MILO Little Olympics kicks-off in Cebu City

MILO Little Olympics, the country’s longest-running interschool youth sports competition, is launching its 26th season with the first of four regional legs at the Cebu City Sports Complex on August 16 to 18 and 24 to 25. After Visayas, the competition will advance to Mindanao, NCR and Luzon, before returning to the Queen City of the South for the 26th MILO Little Olympics National Finals

With the invaluable support of the Department of Education, the Philippine Sports Commission and the Philippine Olympic Committee, the MILO Little Olympics offers a variety of sports events, including Athletics, Badminton, Chess, Football, Gymnastics, Lawn Tennis, Swimming, Table Tennis, Tae Kwon Do, Volleyball, Sipa or Sepak Takraw and Scrabble, to student-athletes from public and private schools nationwide

Last year, Team Visayas failed to secure its fourth consecutive victory against rival NCR, who took home the Perpetual Trophy for the first time as the Overall Champion. Over 30,000 sports enthusiasts filled the Marikina Sports Complex to witness the 25th MILO Little Olympics grand finale. “We are expecting even more spectators and sports enthusiasts to gather and experience the thrilling youth sports games in the different regional events,” added de Vera. “We are also looking forward to seeing a heated rivalry unfold as NCR guards its throne from a former Champion”

The 26th season of the MILO Little Olympics has been set to take place in a new Luzon province, Baguio City. In place of Lingayen, Pangasinan, athletes will compete in the City of Pines to allow more budding talents of Luzon to experience the premiere sporting event, while still within proximity of Pangasinan-based participants
