SBP honors Sports Vision chairman Martelino for years of service

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas surprised one of its pillars last Monday.

The federation honored Mauricio ‘Moying’ Martelino for his nine years of service as a senior consultant.

After being the secretary-general of Philippine Bowling, Martelino was the finance officer and, later on, secretary-general of the SBP’s predecessor Basketball Association of the Philippines.

Martelino was also the executive director of the 1978 FIBA World Championship.

During the 90s, Martelino was the secretary-general of the Asian Basketball Confederation.

For his work in basketball, the International Basketball Federation gave Martelino an Order of Merit award back in 1999. He is just one of six officials from FIBA Asia to receive the award.

Martelino, later on, would be one of the founders of Sports Vision Management Group Inc. – the company behind the Premier Volleyball League.

The Ateneo product then served as lead consultant for the SBP in the 2010s. His group helped organize numerous FIBA events in the country.
