On the performance of Filipino athletes in the Tokyo Olympics


We are one with the Filipino people in rejoicing the performance of our athletes in today’s schedule of games of the Tokyo Olympics.

We congratulate Nesthy Petecio in winning the women’s boxing featherweight semifinals of the Tokyo Olympics and securing a second Olympic medal for the Philippines; EJ Obiena for leaping into the finals of the Men’s Pole Vault; and Carlo Paalam for clinching a quarter finals ticket in the men’s boxing flyweight class.

The whole nation is praying for our athletes as their quest for an Olympic gold medal continues.

Go for gold!
