Philippines Athletes had a successful Olympics in Tokyo. Getting a Gold medal is a big deal when the reality is some Countries did not get a Medal of any color. Compared to the Jamaicans who had to travel from the Caribbean Sea, the Philippines Team traveled up the Geographical Road to Japan. Each Philippines Athlete felt that 2021 was the year at least one Kababayan would win an Olympic Gold Medal. In Tokyo, Kababayans feel a sense of Home Field advantage.

Philippines Athletes worked hard to develop their individual talents and despite not being as good as Jamaicans on the Track or as Americans in the Pool, they exhibited the Pride of the Philippines and discovered a Burning Spear.

Fans searched Gymnastics, Track and Field, Swimming, and Boxing events for that Burning Spear but without success. Simultaneously Fans began to pay attention to the approach and performance of Hidilyn Diaz in the Weight Lifting event. Hidilyn Diaz in the 55kg weightlifting event was an Athlete ready to step forward and be the Philippines first Olympic Gold Medalist.  

Hidilyn Diaz, competing on the World Stage since 2007 and winning a Silver medal in Rio 2016, was ready to be an Olympic Gold Medalist. She was determined to give every Kilogram of effort to accomplish her Goal. She withstood the PRESSURE from competitors to attain victory. Her performance was exemplary and a model for all Philippines Athletes to copy regardless of Athletic focus.

Hidilyn Diaz, would not be denied Olympic Gold even it meant Lifting the entire day and if necessary the rest of the week. She was not in a rush to have Dinner or Baboy (Pork), until she won her unique Gold Medal.

The Philippines Olympic Gold Medal drought is over. Moving Forward we anticipate competitive Performances from James Deiparine, Kristina Marie Knott, Carlo Paalam, and Carlos Yulo in the SEA Games and Olympics 2024.
