Canaman, Camarines Sur – Mariners’ swimming sensation Jifrey Azor is now preparing for an international competition to be held in Bankok, Thailand on Novermber 28 and 29, 2013.

In a recent statement from the school’s Sports Coordinator Ram Tolaram, he confirmed Cadet Azor’s participation as one of the members of the Philippine swimming team while he also represents Mariners’ Polytechnic Colleges Foundation (MPCF) in Camarines Sur.

It can be recalled that Azor had brought home gold medals from several recent swimming events this year such as the Ibalong Festival in September (sponsored by the provincial government of Albay), the Governor ER Ejercito Cup in Sta. Cruz, Laguna held in the month of October and other earlier competitions in which he grabbed gold medals that catapulted him to be included in the national swimming team.

A rigid training under the guidance of MPCF varsity coach Rowen Casaul is on-going as part of his preparation for the forthcoming international championship.

Azor is not taking his training lightly as he anticipates his opponents to be equally well-prepared for the fight. “Players from other Southeast Asian countries participating in the contest cannot be taken for granted as they also have their own strategies ready. What I guaranty to the school is it can count on me that I will give the best of what I can”, declared Azor.

Meanwhile, the administration has assured him of the school’s logistic and moral support. “Just like in previous games in which he represented Mariners, we gave our wholehearted support just as he is about to compete again at the end of the month. His victories have brought honor to the institution and inspiration to the students as he makes us proud to have him as a Marinero”, MPCF President Dante La. Jimenez stated.

“The devastation brought by Super Typhoon Yolanda to our countrymen in Central Visayas gives me additional strenght and courage to do my best as I represent not only my school but also my countrymen and the Phillipines”, Cadet Jifrey Azor added. ###


Former Pinoy Big Brother inmate Roy Requejo enrolls at Mariners

Canamam, Camarines Sur – Roy Requejo of ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother fame has enrolled this 2nd semester, academic year 2013-2014 at the Mariners Polytechnic Colleges Foundation (MPCF) this province. This was confirmed by MPCF Registrar Ms. Marietta Rellosa, with him having qualified as a scholar.

Requejo who hails from Barangay Tinago, Naga City is taking up Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation (BSMT) course and claims that since childhood, it has been his dream to become a seafarer.

His wish to pursue a maritime course was interrupted when he auditioned and qualified to be an inmate in the PBB-Teen Edtion in 2011. At the end of the season of the reality show, he had to finish yet a contract with the TV network. His public engagements prevented him from pursuing his studies.

“Now that I am through with my PBB obligation, I can focus on my long cherish dream, that is of becoming a full-time maritime cadet, study, train and become a future maritime officer”, said the heartthrob of many young girls.

Despite his being popular, Requejo has remained to be a simple guy minus the air that usually accompanies somebody who has been exposed to viewers of a very popular television program shown nationwide.

Aside from the looks, he is gifted with talents such as singing, dancing and playing musical instruments which are some of the important qualities required of a matinee idol.

When asked why he is taking up a maritime course, he replied, “This is where my heart is. Show business could be a very temporary occupation but what I am thinking of is what is in store for me in the long run. Besides, I want to pursue a career which is closest to my heart and that is to become a maritime officer someday”.

Roy Requejo has started to assimilate himself with life in the campus as a cadet-scholar. He has commenced with the regimen and has gone to the extent of foregoing the hairdo which he used to sport as a tv celebrity. Just like any other maritime cadet in the campus, he had his head clean-shaven as he prepares for the training required for a future seafarer-officer. ###
