SINGAPORE – As I quote on one of rapper’s Drake song “Started from the bottom now We Here”, Philippine Basketball’s own FIBA International Referee Ferdinand “Bong” Pascual made the final roster for this year’s Rio Olympics. Many were chosen in this rigorous process by basketball’s governing body (FIBA) but only few made the cut.
Started from humble beginnings and shared with some bumps along the way maybe made this time sweeter. Asia’s top referee will surely make us proud for the upcoming greatest sport spectacle on earth.
From your SBP Singapore family, we are all proud of you. Thank you for unwavering guidance and support along with Sir Levy Valuenzuela.
See you later this year after the Rio Games. More Power and God bless you and your family.
Mabuhay ka Sir Bong!
