Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara felt elated when he saw that his province’s annual sports competition which started almost two decades ago has grown through the years.

The 19th Season of the Govenor Al Bichara’s Cup opened yesterday despite heavy rains with record high attendance.

The event started with a foot parade which began at the Governor’s Guest House beside Bicol University in Albay and proceeded to the Albay Astrodome where the formal opening ceremonies was held.

“We started the Governor’s Cup in 1998, and now 19 years later, it has become the premier sports competition in the whole province, winning the tournament’s top spot has become a mantle of honor,” Bichara said during his speech.

Governor Bichara also gave recognized Albayano athletes who have gained considerable success in their chosen fields.

A Governor’s Award of Distinction and cash rewards were given to several athletes from Albay, notably the first Woman Grand Master in the Philippines, Janelle Mae Frayna, as well as several Grand Masters, the Albay Vulcans, and a standout from Sepak Takraw.
