US-based Filipino fencer Lance Tan, a former Youth Olympic Games campaigner, is scheduled to conduct a fencing clinic on Nov. 26 on the Fencing Hall of the PhilSports Complex.
Tan, who performs for Sacred Heart University within the US NCAA, has been chosen as one of many 25 Young Leaders by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), a four-year program that provides chosen athletes a possibility to develop sustainable, sport-focused social companies for the approaching years.
The 21-year-old fencer stated that conducting the pilot fencing clinic within the nation—with 20 contributors anticipated to point out up—permits him to pursue his aim of getting “a positive impact on the community,” notably on athletes and their households.
“My project’s social development goals are quality education, good health and well-being, and reduced inequalities,” stated Tan. “Fencing and all sports can serve as a gateway. IOC Young Leaders first and foremost should be living examples of Olympism and the Olympic values.”
Tan, who represented the nation within the 2018 Youth Olympiad in Argentina, trains at Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club and Golobitsky Fencing Club within the United States.
