CEBU CITY, Philippines - Bearing the head of the article, "7 Cebu politicians who are actively into sports," Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama led the featured Public Servants who are also active in Sports.

Part of the article reads, "Let’s start with Cebu City’s own mayor. The mayor has often agreed to grace the short 5Ks in running events he gets invited to, but it’s his skills with the basketball that’s worth noting."

The piece further stated, "A known sharp-shooter, Mayor Rama regularly leads his Team Rama against other teams in friendly games. In one game, he hit 30 three-pointers and finished with 96 points in leading Team Rama, 157-137, over the CIB Thunders on July 8, 2013."

"Even if you say the cops were pretty loose in defending the mayor, hitting 30 three-pointers in a game situation isn’t easy. And just recently, he had “only” 55 points in Team Rama’s 109-106 win over Team JVR," part of the article about Mayor Rama ended.
