I am very proud that the newly hailed silver medalist in the Rio Olympics (2016), is from Mampang, Zamboanga City!

Thanks to One Zamboanga for this photo.
To share more about Hidilyn Diaz, I have pasted a column written by my dear friend, R. G. Antonet Go at the Daily Zamboanga Times dated August 9, 2016 and entitled Hidilyn Diaz gives PHL 1st Olympic medal in 20 years.

Isn't this inspiring?

An Olympian doesn't need to have the highest and most expensive form of training nor equipment to achieve the ultimate prize in sports! (But of course, it doesn't hurt if you also have the opportunity for these!

From what I gathered from her story, Passion, Practice, Performance, Perserverance and Prayers paving her path towards Perfection for Pride for the Philippines!!!

A simple young lady from Mampang, Zamboanga City garnered a SILVER MEDAL at the 2016 Rio Olympics!

Let us all be inspired by Hidilyn Diaz and develop the Culture of Excellence within ourselves, by making the most of what we have and proactively finding ways to go beyond the limitations that face us! 

In whatever field we are in, let us develop a culture where one "makes possible the impossible" and we have to start NOW!

Congratulations, Hidilyn Diaz
Thank you very much for the inspiration!!!

Go Zamboanga City!
Go Mindanao!
Go Philippines!
