In 2016, Hidilyn Diaz nabs silver at Rio Olympics. It was the country’s first Olympic medal after 20 years! She set history back then and made record to beat and just recently, she managed to beat her own record as she became Philippines’ first Olympic gold medalist since 1924.

To celebrate her historic win in Rio Olympics 2016, ABS-CBN paid tribute to the athlete on their 2016 ABS-CBN Christmas Station ID. She was featured alongside inspiring and uplifting stories by Filipinos all over the world.

“11 years old ako nag-start sa weightlifting,”

“Before ako nagstart, nag-iigib ako ng tubig pra sa bahay, nagbebenta rin kami ng mga gulay dahil nga sa hirap ng buhay,” Hidilyn shared on the said christmas station ID.

Angel Locsin then walked in the room and had a small conversation with the athlete.

“How do you feel na nirerepresent mo na ang Pilipinas sa Olympics?” Angel asked.

“Proud ako na dinala ko ‘yung bandila ng Pilipinas sa Olympics. ‘Yung mga bata kasi samin, gusto ko na someday mainspire din sila na maging kagaya ko. Gusto kong patunayan sa kanila na hindi porket babae, hindi na kaya,” says Hidilyn.

“Nakakainspire ka bilang isang babae. Saludo ako sa iyo,” Angel added.

Hidilyn Diaz is a solid proof that women can do anything that we set our minds into. She may have lost a few battles before this historic win but her perseverance, courage, and faith led her to become the country’s most valuable athlete!
