Awarding of “Paugnat sa Kusog” Winners During the Flag Raising Ceremony

(Monday,  20th day of January 2020)


Iligan City – “Paugnat sa Kusog” winners were awarded during the flag-raising ceremony at the Anahaw Amphitheatre on January 20.

Paugnat sa Kusog has been an annual event wherein government employees clash and battle out their prowess in sports. The event also encourages camaraderie and an opportunity to unwind and have fun. With the theme: “Kapiskay Sa Panglawas ug Panghuna-huna,” Paugnat sa Kusog started last October 18, 2019 and ended just recently.

Jam-packed and bustling work hours, deadlines to meet, unhealthy lifestyle, and lack of physical exercise leads to poor health patterns that result in low productivity and as work-related has been rampant and plays a real hindrance and challenge to everyday lives of employees everywhere, doing sports can be one of the best ways to blow steam off.

One of the most popular ways in the world for motivating employees is sports. Sport and recreation will not only improve interpersonal relationships and develop better communication but will create a fun way to create healthier and more successful people. Effects, such as better health, improved moods, productivity and positive atmosphere within the company are just some of the benefits. Sport and recreational physical activity have proven to improve the company’s business by large scales. (

The events of the said activity include Basketball, Volleyball, Bowling, Badminton, Swimming, Duathlon, and bench cheering.

Congratulations to the winners of “Paugnat sa Kusog 2019”, and to the other teams and players not fortunate enough to bag an award, see you on the next “Paugnat sa Kusog”, try again, do well, and may the odds be in your favor.
