Student athlete Sylar Alcantara (3-Apo) of the AGS varsity football team has been selected by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) to represent the country as one of its two United Through Sports (UTS) ambassadors to the Virtual Youth Festival 2020!

This is what Sylar posted regarding this honor on his Facebook page: "I am Sylar Alcantara, 8yo and an athlete from the Philippines. I am honoured to represent my country as an ambassador of United Through Sports Youth Festival 2020. A dream fulfilled with the help of all my coaches from Harpoons, Loyola FC, Ateneo Midgets Varsity and Trimac and of course from the love and support of my family and friends. I hope to inspire young people like me to develop their passion, enthusiasm and commitment to sports. Asking for all your prayers and support for the upcoming UTS Youth Festival 2020. One spirit, One heart, We stand United Through Sports."

The Ateneo de Manila Grade School community is praying for Sylar’s success at the Festival and wishes him and the rest of Team Philippines the very best of luck at the virtual competition!
