The Embassy of Japan in the Philippines announced on its website on March 8 the signing of a grant by Ambassador Kazuhiko Koshikawa for the “Philippine Gymnastics Association Training Environment Improvement Project”. (GAP)”.
“Through the Grants Assistance Project for Popular Culture (GACGP), the project aims to advance the GAP Gymnastics Training Center to [the] junior generation,” the article on the embassy’s website reads.
The grant amounts to around P7 million and aims to provide a set of gymnastic equipment apparatus like parallel bars, jumping boards, rings, beams, round horse, mats and others.
All the equipment will be housed in the new Junior Gymnastics Training Center, which the Philippine Gymnastics Association will open in the city of Calamba.
After the outstanding performances of Carlos Yulo, trained in Japan, at the World Gymnastics Championships and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, this collaboration hopes to open up opportunities to enjoy gymnastics for children and adolescents and to train young gymnasts who will be the future champions of this sport.
