AKO-Bicol hails Pinoy Olympic heroes


All Olympians, even medal-less ones, are heroes in their own right.

With this thought, it’s only proper to congratulate and give a thumbs up to all the Filipino athletes who flew the flag during the just-concluded 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“CONGRATULATIONS to our Athletes in the 2016 Rio Olympics You make us Filipinos proud!” read this Facebook post from AKO-Bicol party-list.

The Philippine delegation was made up of 13 athletes, including weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz who took home a rare silver medal.
