As the Philippines proudly celebrates its 100th year of Olympic Games participation, the MVP Group of Companies is eagerly preparing for its most extensive coverage yet, chronicling the inspiring journey of Filipino athletes at Paris 2024.

Every stride of our courageous athletes will be meticulously documented as the group unites for one purpose: to ensure that the Filipino viewing public experiences the thrill of the year's biggest sporting event, set to commence from July 26 – August 11 in France.

Riding the wave of momentum from the Philippines' stellar showing in Tokyo 2020, where weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz delivered the country's first-ever gold medal, plus the silver medals brought home by boxers Nesthy Petecio and Carlo Paalam, as well as a bronze medal from Eumir Marcial.

In 2024, Filipino athletes, led by EJ Obiena and Carlos Yulo, among others, will gear up and will be surely motivated to sustain the gold rush and bring home more medals from Paris.
