Athletics Director, Fr. Victor Calvo, O.P, was appointed as a member of the election committee tasked to determine the eligibility of candidates for the positions in the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC).
POC formed the election committee for the special elections earlier today, July 18 at Manila Golf and Country Club, after Ricky Vargas (POC president), Bambol Tolentino, Clint Aranas, and Cynthia Carrion stepped down from their positions.
Appointed alongside Fr. Calvo was Atty. Teodoro Kalaw IV of the Philippine Dispute Resolution Center and Abono Rep. Conrado Estrella, III.
When asked how does he feel representing the Letran Community, Fr. Calvo simply expressed his joy.
“Just keeping the Arriba spirit,” he said.
Fr. Calvo also believes that being neutral was one of the reasons why he was chosen for the said position.
“I think, they believed that I am neutral, so that it makes our sports apostolate effective, just part of the mission,” he said.
Special elections will happen on July 28, 11 a.m at the Sheraton Hotel.
