Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio inaugurates Training Gym, inspects Sports Complex
| Written by UP Media and Public Relations Office
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio visited the UP-Mindanao campus on December 5 to lead a ceremonial ribbon-cutting and unveiling of the building plaque for the newly-completed UP-Mindanao Human Kinetics Building and Training Gym.
The City Mayor lent her presence to the ceremony in the course of an inspection tour of the on-going construction works in the Davao City-UP Sports Complex in Mintal, Davao City.
The Gym, the Football and Track and Field Stadium that is being constructed, and the upcoming Aquatics Center for swim competition events are the first projects to be implemented in the Sports Complex. A road network is in various phases of construction to connect the facilities and provide access to and from the national roads.
The Sports Complex is the realization of a plan for Davao City to host international-standard sports events. The facilities are funded by the General Appropriation Acts of 2015 and 2016 and the Dept. of Public Works and Highways Local Infra Programs. (Rene A. Estremera, UP Mindanao)
