  1. Marami talagang magagaling dito kaya lang kulang sa suporta. Kaya nga umalis si Wesley So kasi walang suportang nakukuha mula sa gobyerno. Kinu-corrupt lang ang pera, palakasan pa ang sistema. Pero ngayon hindi na mangyayari yan sa panahon ni Pres. Duterte, suportado na ang mga atleta natin ngayon. Sa mga darating na kompetisyon ay aangat na tayo ng husto. Kailangan lang talaga ng suporta mula sa gobyerno.
