Citing “corporate responsibilities and family sentiments” as having played a big role in his decision to do so, Philippine Olympic Committee President Ricky Vargas has called it quits.

“After much introspection, I have determined that there would be other sports leaders who would have the time and inclination needed to lead the POC more effectively,” Philippine Star quoted Vargas as saying in his resignation letter.

Vargas, elected to the presidency in February 2018, tendered his “irrevocable resignation” in a meeting called by majority of the board.

He walks away after 16 months at the helm of the Olympic body in a move that, the Star said, surprise everyone, amid what he described as “politicking” and efforts by majority of the board to “grab power.”

Per POC charter, first vice president Joey Romasanta took over as POC chief.

Vargas said he has instructed secretary general Patrick Gregorio to assist in a “smooth transition” with his successor.

“I ask for the understanding of all concerned, most especially the athletes and NSAs (national sports associations) who have supported my initiatives in the organization,” he said.

“Rest assured, I will continue to support Philippine sports in my private capacity, particularly as official of the MVP Sports Foundation and as president of ABAP (boxing federation),” he added.
