  • Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) chairman Richard Bachmann made it clear that there will be no
    delays on the financial support that PSC provides the athletes.

    Bachmann made this statement on his very first flagraising ceremony as the sports agency’s 12th
    chairman.

    “’Yun ang pinakaurgent na bagay para matulungan natin sila. If there is any delay of allowances of
    any athlete, paki delay din ‘yung akin, my salary also. Give me the names of those athletes, give me
    the names of the NSAs, ako na ‘yung maghahabol. Because when I say that there is no delay in
    allowances, I’m going to make it happen,” he said.

    The PSC chief also laid down his plans to bring back free meals for 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 with regards to the service they carry out for their clients.

    “I work best when I am on the ground talking and listening to people I am supposed to serve,”
    said Bachmann, adding “I would rather go to the athlete, and I also encourage our commissioners to
    do the same.”

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

    Aside from supporting the athletes, the newlyappointed sports chair also assured the PSC family
    that they are part of his priority as he addressed them Tuesday.

    “Kayo rin ay mga MVPs, because of the work you do to support our athletes,” he told the PSC
    employees, who greeted him ahead of his birthday celebration on Wednesday.

    “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,” vowed Bachmann.(abscbn)
