Coo ready for OIC job Olivia

Joey Villar - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — “Bong” Coo will soon take over as officer-in-charge of the Philippine Sports Commission having taken her oath as commissioner before President Marcos himself Thursday.

The bowling legend said she’s waiting for the official order from Malacañang to take over from PSC OIC and executive director Atty. Guillermo Iroy Jr.

“I took my oath with President BBM. But have I taken over as OIC? No orders yet,” said Coo.

“For now, I’m officially working as commissioner,” she added.

The Palace has yet to fill in the posts of chairperson and commissioners, leaving Coo as the highest official of the sports-funding agency.

Iroy had actually written Malacañang a letter seeking the transfer of the OIC function to Coo.

There were reports the Chief Executive will soon appoint people to the vacant spots.

Laoag City Mayor and former Gintong Alay project director Michael Keon has told The STAR he is helping the President, his first cousin, appoint the right people.

“I promise you I won’t make mistakes in helping appoint the right people to the PSC,” said Keon.

The PSC hopes to continue the momentum of the country’s big strides in the international scenes highlighted by weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz’s golden feat in the Tokyo Games.
