Kudos to Lamitan City for hosting the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Athletic Association 2012 under the helm of Lamitan Mayor Roderick Furgay! There were about 6 thousands athletes from 3 different ARMM Cities and muncipilaties according to Basilan Correspondent ABS-CBN TV Patrol Chavacano Richard Falcatan. ARMM comprises the provinces of Basilan, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi and Marawi.

Among the special guests were ARMM OIC Gov. Mujiv Hataman, Cong. Jim Hataman, and ARMM DepEd Sec. Atty. Jamar Kulayan. The sport games will be until April 12. This is the second time Lamitan is hosting it. The first was held in 2005 when it was still a municipality.

Beyond winning medals, sports are a fun activity that offer health benefits, physical and mental well-being. It cultivate certain moral values such as co-operation, friendliness, boldness, sympathy, discipline, respect for authority, sportsmanship etc. And it helps in the development of the planning skills of the athletes which can help them throughout their life.

Let’s hope there will be athletes that will be discovered in this event who can be our future national and international players we can be proud of.
