The 2019 Southeast Asian Games main hub of Clark is the ideal place to put up the Philippine Sports Training Center (PSTC), whose creation was signed into law recently, a leading lawmaker said yesterday.

1-Pacman congressman Mikee Romero said the PSTC law (RA 11214), was originally crafted with Clark, a former major US air base, in mind.

“In essence, we had Clark as site,” said Romero, who was the brainchild of the landmark law that aims to replace the ageing Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.

“The majority can be housed in Clark while cycling and boxing and others that want high altitude training can go elsewhere.”

Romero added Clark already has a 20,000-capacity track oval and 2,000-seater aquatics center.
