It’s an MG3lympic Christmas!

Market Group 3 (MG 3) celebrated the holiday season with a sports fest dubbed MG3lympics on 15 December at the Philippine Army Wellness Center, Grandstand and Gym in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. Four teams — Blue (TMB, MCG and DSG clusters), Red (HMT, ACB and JER clusters), Green (ALS and CEL clusters) and Yellow (WPT, JHE and LPF clusters) — vied for the win.


The day kicked off with an aerobics warm-up led by Zumba fitness instructor Nathania Aritao. Assurance partner Aileen Saringan (ALS) gave the invocation, MG3 leader Wilson Tan (WPT) officially opened the event with a few words and Assurance partner Martin Guantes (MCG) led the participants in the oath of sportsmanship. The parade of teams followed and an associate from the HMT cluster was named Ms. MG3lympics. Afterwards, all MG3 partners took turns carrying the torch before WPT lit the MG3lympics flame.

All teams showed great sportsmanship and teamwork in the various events such as basketball, volleyball, badminton and cheer dance as well as an 8x50m relay, 200-m synchronized run, team sack race, three-legged race, obstacle course relay, tug-o-war, animal farm and target shooting. The day concluded with an awarding ceremony where the champion teams for each event were given trophies and all members who participated received medals. The Yellow team emerged as over-all champion with the Green team as runner-up.
