  • The Philippine table tennis team, led by Richard Gonzales & Jann Mari Nayre (2nd & 1st from left), the country’s No. 1 table tennis players for Men’s & Junior divisions, respectively, recently flew to Hong Kong via PAL flight PR360 to compete in the Asian Table Tennis Olympic Qualification Tournament (singles), a qualifying event for 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil.

    As PAL celebrates its 75th anniversary, it launched its flagship corporate social responsibility program – Rprsnt Pinoy! – in order for PAL to become a source of pride for Filipinos. Rprsent Pinoy! supports exceptional but underprivileged Filipinos, like Gonzales and Nayre who will represent the country in global competitions. Also in photo are Ian Labira, table tennis champion (ladies division) and team coach Kwon Mi Sook.
