LOOK: Skating champ Michael Martinez goes from lanky to hunky

/ 03:04 PM January 31, 2017

Figure skating champion Michael Martinez is all grown-up.

Olympian and 2015 Asian Figure Skating Trophy champion Martinez on Tuesday showed his transformation from “lanky to hunky” in an Instagram post on Tuesday.


“Before and after,” he wrote in the caption.

Martinez made history when he became the first and only Southeast Asian figure skater and contender to represent a tropical country, the Philippines, during 2014 Sochi Games Winter Olympics.   The two-time Triglav Trophy champion proudly represented the country in the Olympics despite limited funding, and was able to bring home two gold medals from different figure skating competitions for two consecutive years.
