Last Friday, I was invited by TV5 to join them on the opening of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics at Murphy's bar in Makati. The broadcast coverage started with Patricia Bermudez-Sison corresponding at the station.
I feel like I was with my old barkada that I used to hang out when watching basketball games and the World Cup. We had to be there before 12 midnight so we can witness the opening ceremony from the lighting of the torch, the fireworks, and especially the parade of the participating countries as we anticipate the Philippine team.
TV5's Patricia Bermudez-Hizon was corresponding at the studio for the live broadcast. For the next sixteen days, TV5 will keep you updated with sports events that will take place in Sochi.
