MANILA--Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) President Mayor Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino looks forward to harmonious chemistry between the POC and Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) as he praised Malacanang’s choice of Jose Emmanuel “Noli” Eala as chairman of the government sports agency.

“A wonderful choice by our President BBM [Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr.] because he [Eala] is a sportsman himself and has been involved in sports for many decades,” Tolentino said. “He surely knows the needs of athletes and coaches in all sports federations.”

The Palace announced Eala’s appointment on Tuesday night and was welcomed at their PSC Offices in Manila by PSC Commissioner Olivia “Bong” Coo, Executive Director Atty. Guillermo Iroy and Deputy Executive Director Merlita Ibay.

Tolentino said he looks forward to a more harmonious relationship between the country’s top sports bodies as he believes Eala will be as active in supporting the national team.

“I expect good chemistry between the PSC and the POC in achieving common goals for the best of the country. I wish him all the best,” Tolentino said.

Eala is the PSC’s 11th chairman. He was a former commissioner of the Philippine Basketball Association and executive director of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

Eala, 59, who already paid a visit to the PSC office at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Malate on Wednesday, joined bowling great Bong Coo who was appointed earlier as PSC commissioner. 

Malacanang has yet to appoint three more commissioners to complete the five-member PSC board.
