Sonny Ty Gymnastics, Philippines

Sonny Ty was the most successful coach in Philippines history. He died 2007.

But the legacy lives on at Sonny Ty Gymnastics Center in Manila, Philippines. That’s the new facility for Philippine Gymnastics & Athletics Academy.

I visited the gym, invited by Normita “Boots” Ty.

On Facebook I see that their Tumbl Trak is now set-up. CONGRATULATIONS.

This is the club currently researching the best designs for an above ground pit. Leave a comment if you have seen designs posted online.

Kids in the Philippines have great potential. All that nation needs is more entrepreneurs, more gyms. And enough revenue to pay coaches. 🙂

As you can imagine, getting expensive equipment to Philippines is not easy. Leave a comment too if you have suggestions on donated equipment. We might be able to get free shipping through a corporate sponsor.
