The INC Unity Games started last year with the inaugural games held May 21 and 28, 2011, in the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila, with the athletes coming from the five ecclesiastical districts in Metro Manila, Philippines: Metro Manila North, Metro Manila South, Metro Manila East, Metro Manila West, and Metro Manila Central. I’m glad to be part of the event not as an athlete but as member of the documentation team.
The INC Unity Games is a multi-sport and multi-district event and the largest athletic competition hosted for members of the Iglesia ni Cristo. This is brainchild of by the Church’s Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo.
The events included badminton, basketball, bowling, chess, table tennis, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and a 3K Fun Run, with many of the events telecast live on NET 25.
