Memo to MVP: Revolt brewing at POC

By Recah Trinidad
PhilBoxing.com
04 Oct 2012



AN outright power grab, a coup, was unthinkable.

But, just the same, there has always been this urgent clamor for positive leadership change in the Philippine Olympic Committee.
This call reached an acute point after another scandalous performance by Team Philippines, headed by POC President Peping Cojuangco, in the recent London Olympics.

The decay and utter mediocrity in Philippines sports, aggravated under Cojuangco, had not only resulted in disenchantment among faithful supporters of the Filipino athlete.

The perennial debacles had disillusioned and turned away countless young talents from pursuing noble fulltime sports involvement for the country.

**

Naturally, there next came silent demands for Cojuangco, branded as lazy and inept, to do the honorable thing by stepping down with his grizzled retinue to give way to competent and responsible sportsmen.

Cojuangco, under fire, refused to budge.

The foxy fulltime politician instead offered power sharing with the highly respected tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan.

Cojuangco asked MVP to team up with him as his chairman in the next POC polls.

**

Did Cojuangco honestly think Mr. Pangilinan would bite?

The overstaying POC head was grossly mistaken.

There next came reports Cojuangco had also offered to junk his henchmen in the dreaded POC clique to accommodate MVP.

MVP refused to even react.

As could be expected, Pangilinan was himself requested to challenge for the POC top post.

MVP kept his cards close to his chest.

**

A guy most relieved at MVP’s refusal to team up with Cojuangco was athletics president Go Teng Kok.

Go said MVP joining the Cojuangco gang would’ve been tantamount to subsidizing a scandal.

Anyway, there followed a suspenseful stretch.
With no positive developments as the POC polls neared, Go Teng Kok stood tall and offered to revolt.

He officially declared yesterday he’s challenging Cojuangco.
Announced Go: “I’m mulling to run for POC president come November this year. Peping Cojuangco must accept my challenge. He must not resort to the technicalities he authored to disqualify opponents like me.”

Go said he had heard Cojuangco would disqualify him from the race because he has been declared a persona non grata in the POC.
