Que Olympic Games withdrawal statement

  • SHARE
Dear All,
Please see latest statement issued by the management company of Philippines’ Angelo Que following his withdrawal from the Olympics.
“It truly is an exciting opportunity for golf to be in the Olympics next month. It will be great opportunity for me as a golfer to be part of the Olympics but it is with deep regret to announce my decision to withdraw from the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
There are many factors that have contributed on my decision to withdraw from the event. The biggest reason of all is my concern on the Zika virus.
I have put a lot of thought on this and I believe I am making the right decision. The health of my family will always come first. With that said, I cannot put myself at risk.
Lastly, I would like to send my sincerest apologies to all parties involved and best wishes to all other participants in the coming Olympics. Hoping for your kind understanding and support on my decision. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Angelo Que
