Amid the many criticisms the 2019 Sea Games is receiving these past few days and weeks, Filipino athletes are urging the public to unite and support “Team Philippines".

One of which is former PBA Cager, Chris Tiu who made a very inspiring Instagram post citing all the difficulties and troubles he himself personally experienced as a sport delegate before but manages not to be affected by all those hindrances.

According to Tiu, as national athletes they were committed to make their nation proud, they didn't permit those problems affect their game performance, but rather remained focus on their games and kept an inspirational standpoint all throughout their participation in the international sports event.

Likewise, he hopes that every Filipino will express more support to the organizing team and the national athletes, and to help boost their morale and confidence so they will perform better.

Tiu then ended his post by calling for every Filipino's unity and stressed not to use the sports big event to divide the country.

"Exciting times ahead as we are 6 days away from the official Opening of the 2019 SEA Games! This time I am not participating as an athlete but as a member of the organizing committee. And I am very honoured to take on this challenging yet rewarding role of serving our country.

Now I appreciate all the people, the hard work and planning that goes into hosting an event of this magnitude.

Inevitably there will be hitches and inconveniences. And I’ve personally experienced many of them as a delegate before. Rest assured, the team will address and continue to find solutions to achieve the goals.

As one country, let’s cheer on our athletes and support our organizing team who have been working extra extra hard to make our country proud!

Sports is certainly a great platform to inspire the youth, promote good values and unite a nation.

Let’s not use it to divide.

Good luck to our athletes!!

To our volunteer workforce, Thank you so much!! Let’s have fun and make our country proud!

We Win as One! Laban Pilipinas!
