TACLOBAN CITY – The City of Ormoc emerged victorious as the grand champion at the recently concluded Eastern Visayas Regional Athletic Association (EVRAA) Meet held in Tacloban City from April 24 to 27, 2023. This highly anticipated event returned after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, showcasing the region's outstanding student-athletes in various sports disciplines.

Ormoc's talented student-athletes put on an impressive performance, collecting a total of 178 gold medals, 104 silver medals, and 70 bronze medals. Their remarkable showing dominated the competition and earned them the prestigious overall championship title.

In total, Ormoc City had 352 student-athlete medalists who contributed to the city's victory. This is Ormoc City's third consecutive win as grand champion after winning the 2018 and 2019 editions of the tournament before the pandemic forced its cancellation.

According to Mayor Torres-Gomez, Ormoc City's medal winners and coaches will receive cash incentives from the local government as a token of appreciation for their hard work and dedication. She also announced that Ormoc will serve as the next host of the Eastern Visayas sports meets. 

In preparation for the EVRAA, the city is committed to ensuring a beautiful and well-organized event for all participants and spectators.

Competing on behalf of the region in the upcoming 2023 Palarong Pambansa, scheduled for July 29 to August 5 in Marikina City, the EVRAA victors are set to demonstrate their prowess on the national stage. As they prepare for this significant event, the young athletes embody the aspirations of their communities and the spirit of their region. —iTacloban
