Edward Hayco: Our Rotary speaker

Call me biased for sports but, in my seven years with the Rotary Club of Cebu West, I heard our best speaker talk last Tuesday. He’s a Guinness World Record holder. He’s convinced an estimated 30,000 children—many out-of-school youth from the barangays—to transform their lives through sport.

Two nights ago, Edward Hayco spoke. He explained his love for dancesport, his passion to help the needy, his programs for the Cebu City Sports Commission. No doubt, our Rotary members—the attendees last Tuesday included Maxwell Ahyong, Lenton Beltran, Fabby Borromeo, Camilo Ceniza, Andrew Ching, Oscar Chua, Benjie Cimafranca, Toto Cupin, Ben Dapat, Ruel Dihiansan, Nilo Domingo, Romy Dy Pico, Maxwell Espina, Jimmy Lao, Wally Liu, Ronnie Medalle, Nonito Narvasa, Ray Patuasi, Fritz Quiñanola, Caloy Santos, Johnny Siao, Alvin Tan, Justin Uy and Wilton Uykintian—will help our new Sports Chairman.

I've been a sports columnist since 1994. First, in The Freeman newspaper under "Tennis Is My Game." Then, starting in 2003, with Sun.Star Cebu under the name "Match Point." Happy reading!
