The city council passed resolutions giving due recognition and appreciation to all the winning athletes and their coaches who brought honor to Baguio.

One batch of athletes commended are Muay Thai athletes who participated in the Jincheon 1st World Youth Martial Arts Masterships held Nov. 3 to 7 in South Korea.

“The city council has regularly paid tribute to outstanding Baguio athletes for their astonishing feat of bringing pride and glory to the City of Baguio from sport competitions,” the measure states.

It stressed that, “the outstanding performance of Baguio athletes and their coaches deserves to be commended for the honor and recognition they have brought to the city.”

Godwin Amos Langbayan was also commended for winning two gold and one silver medals during the 2017 Asia Pacific Submission Jiu-Jitsu GI and No GI International Open held in Pasay City on Nov. 5.

Langbayan also bagged two golds, one silver and one bronze during the Philippine-Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu National Championships and Damau Philippine International Jiu-Jitsu Tournament on Sept. 30 and Oct. 7 to 8.
