MANILA, Philippines — Wanting to bring home a gold medal from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Hidilyn Diaz said she will do everything she can to achieve it — even if it means asking for financial support to get there.

In her Instagram Story Monday, the Olympic silver medalist asked: “[Is it] okay to ask sponsorship sa mga private companies towards Tokyo 2020?”

“Hirap na hirap na ako, I need financial support” she aired her distress.


Diaz then asked her followers: “Sa tingin niyo okay lang kaya? Nahihiya kasi ako pero try ko kapalan mukha ko para sa minimithi kong pangarap para sa atin bansa na maiuwi ang Gold Medal sa Olympics.”

The 28-year-old weightlifter broke the country’s Olympic dry spell when she surprisingly placed second in the 53kg women’s weightlifting division during the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Previously, she brought pride to the country as she bagged the silver medal in the 2019 Asian Weightlifting Championships in Ningbo, China in April. (Editor: Jonathan P. Vicente)
