SM Skating Athletes Brings Home Medals For the Country

by - September 04, 2017

For a country located in the tropical part of the world, ice sports is kind of unusual unless you’re a Winter Olympian figure skater who has been skating in the MOA rink   since he was seven years old or part of a community of pure hockey enthusiasts whose been playing at the rink of the SM Skating since 2008.

To the delight and pride of our country, these are the very people who brought home the very first medal for the newly-introduced winter sport in the South East Asian Games. The SM Skating’s Ice Hockey team brings the gold for the sport and adding to the roster of wins for the country is Michael Martinez’s silver placer in the men’s division of figure skating while Alisson Perticheto won the bronze medal for the women’s division of figure skating.

To celebrate our success in the just concluded 29th SEA Games, SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. and its SM Skating proudly welcomed the athletes where they lifted up their medals in pure joy and gratification to the crowd who gathered at the skating rink in SM Megamall last August 31, 2017. Afterwards, 2014 Winter Olympian Michael Christian Martinez wowed the crowd with a solo performance.

SM Skating is the sole catalyst of ice sports in the Philippines. Headed by the SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc’s president, Mr. Edgar Tejero, he congratulated the relatively young ice hockey team and two seasoned figure skaters for a job well done. They proudly displayed the Philippines’ colors across the Malaysia’s skating rink.

Under the patronage of SM Prime Holding Inc’s Chairman of the Executive Committee Mr. Hans Sy, the athletes were able to train more intensely at their official training ground, the SM Skating Rink.

SM Lifestyle Inc., is the only company in the country to carry Olympic size ice skating rinks. SM Skating continuously supports the national ice athletes and is proud to be part of their journey towards global success.
