Juico steps down as PATAFA president


After eight years, the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association (PATAFA) will be under new leadership.

Philip Ella “Popoy” Juico has resigned from his post as federation president during their board meeting on Saturday held at Makati Diamond Residences.

Terry Capistrano was appointed by PATAFA’s board to succeed Juico immediately.

Still, Juico will be part of the country’s athletics program as PATAFA appointed him as chairman emeritus.

“The PATAFA shall always remain steadfast to its core values of integrity, honesty, competence and sincerity, the same values required of all PATAFA athletes, coaches and other stakeholders,” Juico said.

“I am not leaving PATAFA or the sports community, as it is here where my heart lies but for now, I look forward to more family time and an opportunity to concentrate on personal and business interests and ventures and community advocacies.”

Under Juico, the country’s athletics team won 26 golds, 25 silvers, and 41 bronzes while also sending five athletes to the Olympics.
