Hidilyn Diaz shed light on some of the things weighing down Philippine sports via a social media post that showed the sorry state of the Philippine team’s weightlifting gym.

Now, help seems to be on the way.


The 2016 Rio Olympic silver medalist said on Friday that improvements to the outdated gym are on the way, according to the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).

“Good news! There’s already a winning bid for the weightlifting gym and high performance gym said the Executive Director of the PSC. In three months, the gym will be done. Please! We’ve been waiting for too long,” she said in a tweet in Filipino.


Diaz had earlier posted about the shabby conditions of the gym, garnering varied reactions.

PSC executive director Atty. Sannah Frivaldo later spoke with Diaz and assured her that improvements are on its way for the Philippine weightlifting team. —RANDOLPH LEONGSON, INQUIRER.NET
