MANILA, Philippines — Bumilib si Philippine Olympic Committee president Ricky Vargas sa mga alituntunin ni bagong International Olympic Committee chief Thomas Bach.

“He gave me a lot of pointers, foremost of which was to enjoy my job. He also talked of the values of colla­boration, getting enga­ged, friendship and buil­ding relations,” sabi ni Vargas kay Bach, isang German lawyer at Olympian fencer.

Nakasama ni Vargas si POC secretary-ge­neral Pato Gregorio sa pagbisita kay Bach sa IOC headquarters sa Lau­sanne, Switzerland.

Sila ay sinamahan ni IOC representative to the Philippines Mikee Co­juangco-Jaworski.

Nakausap din ng tat­long sports officials si­na Institutional Relations and Governance & NOC Relations head Jerome Polvey, Athletes Unit & Relations with OCA and Asian NOCs chief Olivier Niamkey at Director General Pere Miro.

Ibinahagi ng IOC Sports Department ki­na Vargas, Gregorio at Co­juangco-Jaworski ang tungkol sa Athletes Com­mission, Athletes Entourage Commission, Games Management De­partment at Sports and Active Society Com­mission.

Ipinasyal din sila sa Olympic Museum.

“What really impressed me most in the museum were the clarity of vision and the reason of the Olympic movement. And it is remar­kable that it continues to be relevant and a vital contributor in the deve­lopment of political re­la­tionships among the countries of the world,” sa­bi ni Vargas, nailuklok bilang bagong POC pre­sident apat na buwan na ang nakakaraan kapalit ni Jose ‘Peping’ Cojuagco, Jr., ama ni Cojuangco-Jaworski.
