BM Arevalo lauds Hidilyn for her firm stand on West PH Sea issue
Masbate Senior Provincial Board Member Jason Arevalo hailed Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz for her stand on the West Philippine Sea issue.
“Winning an olympic gold still did not take away the gold of a patriot that is within her,” said Arevalo.
“Her words on the West Philippine Sea is way too heavy to lift even fot this nation’s powerful few,” he added.
In an interview, Diaz reiterated that the West Philippine Sea belongs to the country and no one else.
In her Olympic bid, Diaz defeated her Chinese foe to secure the Philippines’ first ever gold medal in the Olympics.
She did not only won the gold but even set an Olympic record in weightlifting.
In the words of Arevalo: “Si Hidilyn lang ang sakalam.”
