MANILA — Fulfilling his campaign promise to get the best and the brightest into his administration, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has appointed Danilo Cruz as the new head of the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and bowling legend Olivia “Bong” Coo as commissioner of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).

This was announced on Wednesday, July 20, by Press Secretary Rose Beatrix “Trixie” Cruz- Angeles.

“The Office of the Executive Secretary, through Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles, confirms the appointment of Danilo Cruz as TESDA Director-General and Olivia Garcia “Bong” Coo as Commissioner of the Philippine Sports Commission,” she said in a statement.

To recall, Cruz served as undersecretary of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) under the Gloria Macapagal Arroyo administration.

The former president (GMA) had supported the UniTeam of BBM and Sara Duterte last elections.

On the other hand, Coo — dubbed as a bowling legend — has brought the country with pride after bagging a number of medals in various tournaments including five golds, two silvers, and three bronzes in the Asian Games as well as eight gold medals in the Southeast Asian Games. (ai/mtvn)
