Learning about the Korean experience experience will inspire Filipino coaches to do better in prepararing national athletes for international competitions.

Philippine Sports Commission Chairman William Ramirez said this after the PSC and the Korea Institute of Sports Science successfully closed the fourth installment of the Sports Science Lecture Series at the PhilSports Complex yesterday in Pasig City.

“Their (Koreans’) success is a good point of inspiration for our coaches,” said Ramirez, who opened the lecture series with KISS president Young Lin Chung.

Ramirez, who signed a memorandum of understanding reaffirming the partnership, said the lectures are eye-openers since the Koreans have done well in the Asian Games and in the Olympics.

Among the lecturers was Dr. Hyunjoo Cho, who talked about Sports Policy: Global Coaching Leadership. He said that to become a good coach, coaches needed to define sports performance leadership and performance managements.

In performance management, coaches must understand the processes that athletes goes through in training and in competitions.
