Ayala Corp. backs Sy’s SEAG bid

Ayala Corp. President and CEO Fernando Zobel de Ayala joins bowler Alexis Sy during the WeAreAyala Business Club Cebu Townhall.

ALEXIS SY will be seeing action in her fourth Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi in May and thanked Ayala Corp. for supporting her campaign.

“I’m thankful to Ayala [Corporation] for helping me in this move and for providing me with generous assistance,” said Sy, 29, the 2012 Asian youth tenpin bowling gold medalist. “I really feel blessed to be part of an organization that supports my bid to bring honor to our country.”

Ayala Corporation President and CEO Fernando Zobel de Ayala and her employer, BPI’s Corporate Banking Group, affirmed their support for Sy during the recent WeAreAyala Business Club Cebu Townhall.

“The Ayala group is rooting for Alexis Sy as she represents our country in the upcoming SEA Games in Hanoi,” Zobel said. “In our own way, we at Ayala are supporting her bid by providing her the flexibility and financial assistance she needs to train.”

But the 2017 Philippine Open Masters Champion will be competing without his biggest fan—his dad Alex who passed away last year.

“My dad had always been my inspiration. He supported me all the way,”said Sy, a Marketing Associate at BPI Corporate Banking Group. “I’m sure he would have wanted me to keep going. So here I am, still playing the game he loved.”

Sy will be joined by Lara Posadas, Rachelle Leon and Mades Arles in the women’s team in the Hanoi SEA Games set from May 12 to 23. The men’s team is composed of Merwin Tan, Patrick Nuqui, Ian Dychangco and Ivan Malig. They will be coached by Biboy Rivera and Jojo Canare.

A total of six gold medals will be contested in Hanoi—men and women’ singles, doubles and team events. Sy topped the national bowling federation’s women’s tryouts with a whopping series average of 208.38.
