Another Pinay lifts us up, says Albay Vice Gov. Grex Lagman
For Albay Vice Gov. Grex Lagman, Hidilyn Diaz’s Olympic victory is the “golden lining” that the country needs at this time.
In his view, Diaz’ achievement is another example of women coming to save the day for the Philippines.
In a Facebook post, Lagman noted that it has been the case in the country that when things are not well, a Filipina will come in to lift us all up.
This is what happened with Diaz’ victory, he said.
She emerged triumphant despite being linked to a plot to oust the President.
Moreover, her victory was extra symbolic because she won over a Chinese opponent who had been the frontrunner in their event.
No wonder he could not help but quip “Hidilyn for President!”
“Hidilyn for President!!!!!!
If one looked hard enough, there should always be a ‘golden lining.’ Especially in the backdrop of today’s unimpressive local goings-on. Boo-hoo!
Yes, the Philippines
just captured its first Olympic gold medal via Hidilyn Diaz’s spectacular international showing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in weightlifting!
It has been a familiar refrain in our country: when everything seems to be dismal, there’ll always be a Filipina who’ll somewhere, somehow lift us all up when all the chips are down. Maraming salamat po, Bb. Hidilyn Diaz!
Backstory: Hidilyn Diaz was red-tagged before and accused of being part of the ‘Oust Duterte Matrix.’
Extra symbolic gold medal because she won over a Chinese athlete who was favored to win it all.
