PSI returns home to Yldefonso Swimming Complex for National Open


Coming off a successful Swimming National Selection meet last October 22-24, 2021 in Capas, Tarlac, the Philippine Swimming Inc. will be coming back home to the Teofilo Yldefonso Swimming Pool in the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex, Manila from February 25-27, 2022 for the National Open.

“We are glad to be able to host the PSI National Open in the newly-refurbished Yldefonso Swimming Pool,” said PSI president Lailani Velasco.

“With the easing of quarantine restrictions in the country and with the help of the Philippine Sports Commission, we can finally swim in a pool that is both historic and familiar to most of us.”

A total of 160 participants are set to take part in the PSI National Open. This will help determine the national team pool for the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, Vietnam this May.

Headlining the swimmers are SEA Games veterans Sacho Ilustre, Rafael Barreto, Rian Marco Tirol, Xiandi Chua, Thanya Dela Cruz, and Miguel Barreto.

Also set to compete are the likes of Samuel Alcos, Sebastienne Wong, Chloe Daos, Erin Castrillo, Joaquin Santos, Camille Buico, Pierre Chan, and Jordan Lobos.

“We hope to encourage current swimmers to train even more to reach their dreams. And what better dream than to have a chance to represent the country, and bring pride and honor to the flag?” expressed Velasco.

A total of 36 events will take place in the three-day meet.

Competition begins on Friday at 3:00 PM. Start times for Days 2 and 3 will be at 9:30 AM.

All participants will undergo strict testing prior to entering the competition venue.
