PAL Flies Table Tennis Champs For Pre-Olympic Event

The Philippine table tennis team led by Richard Gonzales and Jann Mari Nayre (second and first from left), the country’s number one table tennis players for Men’s and Junior divisions respectively, flies to Hong Kong via Philippine Airlines flight PR 360 to compete in the Asian Table Tennis Olympic Qualification Tournament (singles), a qualifying event for 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

As it celebrates its 75th year, PAL, under its flagship corporate social responsibility program Rprsnt Pinoy!, and in line with its vision to become a source of pride of the Filipinos, supports exceptional but underprivileged individuals like Gonzales and Nayre who were chosen to represent the country in global competitions.
