UBI Sponsors the Palarong Pambansa 2019

Mr. Carlos “Charlie” Gonzalez of Ulticon Builders Incorporated based in Davao City, Philippines, adheres to its commitment to give aid in every aspect to our local government.  He believes in shaping a better future for the less fortunate Filipino children who really need our assistance. Whether it’s through sports or education, we have the power to change their existing to dream big and rise up every obstacle or occasion that comes to their path.

 In dreaming big for our young athletes, the local government of Davao City took this opportunity to host the biggest Palarong Pambansa (National Games 2019) that was ever recorded in history. This is the second time the city has hosted the said event and the first time it hosted was in the year 1950 when it won the bid over Zamboanga del Sur and Misamis Occidental. 

The 2019 Palarong Pambansa which had the theme, “Shaping the future through sports” formally commenced on April 28 at the University of the Philippines Sports Complex in Tugbok District, Davao City.  It was graced with the presence of his Excellency President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and other government officials who were also in attendance. Based on official estimates, more than 20,000 people attended the event with 15,000 athletes coming from 17 different regions that competed in this year’s edition of the national sports event. 

Philippine sports icons such as Lydia de Vega, Onyok Velasco, and James Younghusband were also present during the opening ceremony to give inspiration to our Filipino young athletes. The local government of Davao City allocated P69.3 million to conduct the national games which provided for the transportation (Buses), 70 kilos of chicken and beef, 15 sacks of rice for each delegate and free Wi-Fi connection in all 27 sporting venues for the athletes, sporting officials, media and the rest of all the members of each delegation. 

In the whole five day event, the National Capital Region (NCR) once again stood its ground as the overall champion with 86 gold medals, 71 silver medals and 56 bronze medals. They have dominated the top rank of the national games for the last 15 years. The Davao Region ranked 11th place this year. Davao City swimmer Juliana Marien Villanueva breaks her own Palarong Pambansa record and defended her crown in the secondary girls 800m freestyle stroke. The 13-year-old Villanueva recorded a time of 9 minutes and 32.77 seconds to squash her previous 9:45.40 mark that she set in Vigan, Ilocos Norte last year. 

Davao City prides itself along with its hundreds of sponsors coming from public and private sectors of our city who showed unity for the success of the Palarong Pambansa 2019. Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio graced the closing ceremony last May 04 at the same venue, in which she personally gave the awards to the winners and handed down the Palarong Pambansa flag to its next host which is the Occidental Mindoro Region.
