    You can probably add the new Philippine Arena. It is an indoor arena being constructed in Ciudad de Victoria, Bocaue, Bulacan and Santa Maria, Bulacan, Philippines. It is a project of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) as part of its 100th year of re-establishment in the Philippines on July 27, 2014. It is expected to have a seating capacity of 50,000, twice bigger than the biggest existing seating dome, 35,000 more than the Smart Araneta Coliseum and 30,000 more than the Mall of Asia Arena. Upon its completion, it will become the largest domed arena in the world. Groundbreaking ceremony was held on August 17, 2011. Check out photos at google images to be amazed.

    After the Technical Meeting for Officials, Coaches and Athletes. Mr. Claro Pellosis has ruled that the Fil Sports Complex or Ultra at Pasig meets iaaf standards and is in fact 400m. The rumour was that another school incorrectly measured the track. I am trying to retrieve the memo from this meeting.
