Cobra Energy Drink, Official Partner of the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation (PDBF), together with Philippine Airlines, Official Carrier of the PDBF to the 10th International Dragon Boat World Championships, held a send-off press con luncheon at Capone’s A Venue to rally support for the back-to-back world champs.
The PDBF are slated to compete in the 10th IDBF World Championships from August 3-7 at Tampa, Florida, USA.  Headed by Team Captain Usman Anterola,  the 25 champion paddlers are a mix of Philippine Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guards personnel, and reinforced by the best civilian women paddlers. 
Despite lack of funding and numerous setbacks, the PDBF have been garnering numerous accolades worldwide since 2003 when they were formally organized in order to give autonomy to various private dragon boat clubs in the country.  

The PDBF is a founding member of the IDBF.  Per IDBF and Sports Accord, PDBF is the only recognized governing body for dragon boat racing in the Philippines.  The IDBF is the world governing authority for dragon boat racing as a sport.  

The PDBF is also a Founding Member of the Asian Dragon Boat Federation (ADBF), South East Asian Traditional Boat Association (SEATBA).

The IDBF World Championship is held every 2 years.  In 2007, the PDBF won the Gold for Men’s 200 meters in Sydney, Australia and set a then world record of 42.16 seconds.  

In 2009, the PDBF successfully defended its world title and set a new world record of 40.02 seconds at the World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.  The Philippines doubled its gold medal haul as it also won the Mixed Division.
In the ADBF Championships, the PDBF won 2 Golds in Penang, Malaysia in 2008 and 1 Gold in Mianyang, China in 2004.
Early this year, the PDBF were officially invited by the IDBF Tampa Organizers to defend their title in the Premier Mens and Mixed competition classes.  Pressed for funds, the chances were slim for the PDBF to fly abroad.
In support of the PDBF’s cause, Official Carrier, Philippine Airlines stepped up to make it possible for the dragon boat world champs to vie for their third consecutive World Titles.

The US Dragon Boat Team’s Head Coach, Bob McNamara said, “The PDBF team are winning and setting world records with athletes of the finest character and well-respected by their competitors from across the globe.  They have represented the Philippine nation in an outstanding fashion, in my opinion.”

Official Partner Cobra Energy Drink fully supports the PDBF and the advancement of Dragon Boat as a sport because of their shared values in the embodiment of true strength through perseverance, determination and the will to succeed.  Cobra is also Official Sponsor of the ongoing, “Cobra Dragon Boat Regatta 2011”, which is run by the PDBF in Manila Bay.

The voice - Hottest New Show in the US set for Asian premiere this August

You will be blown away with great singing talents in store for the The Voice’s preliminary round of competition. The first batch of contestants showcased their amazing vocal powers anticipating the judges to hit the button and turn their chair which signals “You Got Me!”.  Now worries would be when more than one judges turned their chairs because the contestant has to pick his choice. The judges/coaches will do their best to win a pick, some funny lines were thrown at each other, truly the blind audition phase is super cool.

Tune in to AXN on August 21, Sunday as “The Voice” premieres on television.

Azkals vs. Kuwait Game 2

It’s over. The Philippine Azkals lost their chance to advance to the third round of the qualifying tournament for the 2014 World Cup when Kuwait's Al-Azraqs won today over a do-or-die game held in Rizal Memorial Football Stadium, Manila.

Sure the fans are sad for Azkals’ defeat but hey, this is such a milestone for us Filipinos, for the nation and for young and aspiring football players.  The Azkals have gone far reaching the second round of the World Cup qualifiers which makes a history for us. 

Even I myself don’t have much idea before about football since Azkals have gotten the media attention.  Now, I want my son to become a football player someday, we get so excited whenever we watch their game and we owe it all to these guys.

Way to go Azkals, you have our support.
