Filipino athletes who have earned berths to the Tokyo Olympics will be tops on the priority list of recipients once a vaccine for COVID-19 becomes available, according to the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) leadership.

POC president Bambol Tolentino said during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum that was done online on Tuesday that there is going to be a mad rush in the event a vaccine is produced.

“Ilalaban natin. Priority ang sports because of the Olympics once a vaccine is produced. We can lobby for that. I am sure sports will be prioritized,” said Tolentino, who also represents the eighth district of Cavite.
