  • President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. has chosen Richard “Dickie” Bachmann as the new chairman of the
    Philippine Sports Commission, Malacañang confirmed on Wednesday.

    Press Undersecretary Cheloy Garafil confirmed the appointment to the media. The Palace, however,
    has yet to release Bachmann’s appointment papers.

    Bachmann replaces Noli Eala, who led the commission since August 30 of this year.

    Sources said Eala’s appointment was made by former executive secretary Vic
    Rodriguez, who had a falling out with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. soon after the
    latter’s victory in the May elections.

    Bachmann is currently in the US and has yet to issue a statement on his appointment.
    He is set to return on Dec. 30.

    Meanwhile, the President also appointed new commissioners in the PSC, based on photos released by
    the Office of the Press Secretary.

    The Palace said these are Walter Francis K. Torres and Edward Lim Hayco, who both took their oath
    of office before Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin earlier in the day.

    Prior to his post, Bachmann was named as the basketball commissioner of the University Athletic
    Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

    Bachmann went to De La Salle University from 1986 to 1991, graduating with a Bachelor of Science
    degree in Commerce, Major in Business Management. He also played for the Green Archers.

    Bachmann was also the PBA 3×3 chairman. (from J. Manahan, K. Domingo & D. Gasgonia, ABS
