Zamboanga City will send a total of 864 delegates to the Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Athletic Association (ZPRAA) Meet to be held  from December 10 to 17 in Pagadian City.

Councilor Elbert Atilano, who also chairs the Committee on Sports, said that the 864-man delegation will be composed of athletes, coaches, and officials.

Councilors will also travel to Pagadian to give the athletes moral support.

Girls and boys will participate in 37 sporting events for the elementary level and 40 for the secondary level.

The city is currently concentrating on individual sports to get more medals.

“Ya concentra ahora na individual event para asegura pwede kita saka otraves el corona,” Atilano said. (RGAAGo)
