No delays on financial support to athletes: Bachmann


PHILIPPINE Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman Richard Bachmann’s first order of mission for the PSC manpower: “No delays on the financial support that PSC provides the athletes.”

Mr. Bachmann, on his very first flag raising ceremony as the sports agency’s 12th chairman made very clear his intent to be of service to the athletes. “… If there is any delay of allowances of any athlete, my salary also. When I say that there is no delay in allowances, I’m going to make it happen,” declared Mr. Bachmann.

The PSC chief also laid down his plans to bring back free meals for the members of the Philippine team. He also encouraged the PSC workforce to come to him if they have any suggestions or thoughts they want to share relative to the service they carry-out for their clients. “I work best when I am on the ground — talking & listening to people I am supposed to serve,” said Mr. Bachmann, adding “I would rather go to the athlete, and I also encourage our Commissioners to do the same.”

Mr. Bachmann, who was joined by Commissioners Edward Hayco, Olivia “Bong” Coo and Walter Torres plans to take up a four-point priority plan with his commissioners as they hold a board meeting yesterday.

Aside from supporting the athletes, the newly-appointed sports chairperson also assured the PSC family that they are part of his priority as he addressed them Tuesday saying, “kayo rin ay mga MVPs, (you are also MVPs) because of the work you do to support our athletes.”

“I want to assure everyone that I am here to be of service. Period. No personal agenda. I am here to serve our national athletes, the NSAs, and the PSC organization.” assured Mr. Bachmann.
