PICSON, NEW ABAP PREXY

NAHALAL bilang bagong presidente ng Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines (ABAP) ang long-time executive director at secretary-general nitong si Ed Picson.

Virtual lang isinagawa ang halalan ng national sports association (NSA), na sa unang pagkakataon ay nakapag-uwi ng dalawang silver medal sa pamamagitan nina Nesthy Petecio at Carlo Paalam at isang bronze medal mula kay ­Eumir Marcial, noong nakaraang ­Tokyo Olympics.

Si outgoing president Ricky Vargas, na magsisilbing ABAP chairman, ang mismong nagnomina kay Picson.

“I am honored to turn the baton over to Ed as my successor. He is the most qualified and deserving for the position. Ed is a principled and honest man who believes in good governance, cares very much for our boxers and is hands on. I am confident he will bring ABAP to the next level.”

Nahalal din sina dating ­Deputy Speaker Robbie Puno bilang vice president, at ex-Cong. Raul Daza bilang vice chairman.

Nagpasalamat ang ­dating sportscaster at newspaper ­columnist na si Picson sa tiwalang ipinagkaloob sa kanya ng mga kasamahan sa ABAP.

“I am humbled by the trust and confidence reposed in me. The results in the last Olympics where Nesthy Petecio and Carlo Paalam won silver while Eumir Marcial got bronze, will be a tough act to follow. But our ­boxers, coaches and support staff assure me they are all up to the task. We vow not to let the country down.” (ANN ENCARNACION)
