Athletes not asking for the moon from host country

/ 05:03 AM December 05, 2019

Senate President Tito Sotto claims that we are too hospitable and should not pay too much attention to the complaints of athletes from other countries.

Were the foreign athletes asking too much that they be fetched at the airport at the soonest possible time?


Was it a very extravagant request that they be brought to the right hotel and the rooms were ready?

Were they very demanding to ask that adequate and nutritious food be served to them?


They were not asking for the moon, they were simply requesting basic amenities that we, as host country, should provide.

Yes, we would like our athletes to win. But as the host country, it is our obligation to be good, effective and efficient guest relations officers for our guests.
