Hidilyn Diaz won PH 's first ever gold medal in Olympics


Wazzup Pilipinas!?

For the first time ever, the Philippine national anthem is played in the Olympics after weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz won the country's first ever gold medal in the Games. 

It took a woman to get the Philippines its first ever Olympic gold medal. Congratulations, Hidilyn Diaz! We are proud of you! Mabuhay ka! 

For the first time ever, the Philippine national anthem is played in the Olympics after weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz won the country's first ever gold medal in the Games.

The Philippines had never won an Olympic gold medal. Then Hidilyn Diaz, a weight lifter at her fourth Games, finally broke the nearly century-long drought — and achieved two Olympic records in the process. 

At least P33 million cash reward awaits Hidilyn Diaz after her historic gold medal performance in the Tokyo Olympics.   

Under Sec. 8 of the Republic Act No. 10699, Hidilyn Diaz is entitled to a cash prize of P10,000,000.

I'm sure she's not after the money, but P10M is a low amount for a feat that's almost a century in the making. And I hope we support our athletes to win, not just when they win.

As of today, these were what she has been promised:

10M - PSC (Philippine Sports Commission) + Medal of Valor

10M - Manny Pangilinan

10M - Ramon Ang

3M - Rep. Mikee Romero

2.5 - Zamboanga City

5M - Dennis Uy + Lifetime Free Gas from Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc.

200K - Angeles City Pampanga Government


- Lifetime Flights - airasia travels 

- House and Lot worth 4M - Century Properties Real Estate

- Condo in Eastwood worth 14M - Megaworld Corporation

- House and Lot in Tagaytay - POC - Philippine Olympic Committee - Olympic.PH President (Abraham Tolentino)

- Appliances - XTREME Appliances

- 80,000 Free Miles Per Year (Lifetime) - Philippine Airlines

- 50,000 worth of furniture from Furniture Source Philippines


In 2019, MalacaƱang released the so-called oust-Duterte matrix, which included then Olympic silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz. 

Two years later, the same MalacaƱang lauded Diaz for clinching the country’s first Olympic gold medal. 

Hidilyn Diaz is the timeline cleanse we need after all that lies and garbage coming from Duterte  for nearly 3 hours.

The only good thing about this SONA is that, finally— it’s his last. But please ‘wag nating hayaang masundan ng isa pang Duterte.

But this is really a symbolic and historic win for us. Hidilyn Diaz, a woman and an athlete red-tagged by the gov’t for asking support, defeated China to get our first ever olympic gold on Duterte’s last SONA.
