AirAsia Supports Athletes on the XXIX SEAGames 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Voted for 9th consecutive year by Skytrax as the world's best low cost airline. #DaretoDream sports initiative aims to supports and inspire athlete to discover its own potential peak aspiration into reality.
Which will be held in Kuala Lumpur from August 19-31, 2017. I just visited KL last year's travel and motoring sport tour. And I think they are one of the best world event sporting venue. I wonder they did some improvements and construction in KL area from the time of our tour.
Anyways, Air Asia also creates inspiring video stories of our very own Pinoy SEA games Athletes. That shared both joy and challenges of being an athlete. As of 2015 Team Philippines already brought home 894 SEA Games gold medals. Hope our glorious Pinoy Athletes can bring more Golds this 2017!
I was having a casual talk with Jessie - Swimming National Team Captain about its preparation and future games. Also we talked about one of its contender from SG Joseph Schooling who beats Michael Phelps his mentor in last year Rio Olympics.
Although his less than 6ft tall, he said he still have the advantage over the strong contender Singaporean Icon. Cheers to that Mamba Thinking! I can still vividly remember that funny Olympic swimming meme of Phelps in social media. A Picture of Winners focus of winning and losers focus on winners except Bolt.
