Change is coming! Bambol Tolentino wins as POC chair

Feb 23, 2018 @ 16:05

Cavite Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino has won the chairmanship race in the Philippine Olympic Committee’s (POC) elections.

Tolentino, who heads the cycling group, defeated table tennis head Ting Ledesma, 23-15, in the polls held Friday (February 23).

His ally, Ricky Vargas, was named president after beating the incumbent Jose “Peping” Cojuangco.

The 82-year-old former congressman of Tarlac ruled POC for 13 years, with the country barely improving its chances of winning a gold medal at the Olympics.

Cojuangco won a fourth term as POC president in the November 2016 elections but his victory was declared null and void by Pasig regional trial court.
