“We’re now down to our final session and with that, we want to give our participants, our partners in developing sports programs in the country, a chance to see what the PSC does in the whole scheme of things in the sports community.” said PSC Chairman William “Butch” Ramirez who, along with Velasco, supported and witnessed the historic and best-ever performance of our national athletes in the 2020+1 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Ramirez said that it is important to the PSC board for the agency’s stakeholders to understand the mandate and role of the PSC as this can help them know “where we can help them” in their own efforts for sports in their areas and own capacities.
Velasco, also the National Training Director of the Philippine Sports Institute (PSI) for over five years, is the dynamic arm of the PSC in sports science and high-performance training.
From 2004-2008, Velasco headed the Strength and Conditioning Unit of the Philippine Center for Sports Medicine of the PSC now known as the Medical Scientific Athletes Services Unit (MSAS). He also served as the Strength and Conditioning Coach and Consultant of the Hong Kong Sports Institute (2008-2013) and Hong Kong Rugby Union (2015-2016). Velasco was also part of the team behind the success of Hongkong’s Olympic medalist Lee Wai Sze.
