With Filipino athletes scoring medals left and right at the SEA Games, Pinoy pride is on a high—and Gretchen Ho hopes that supporting local athletes does not end with the multi-sport event.

The TV host and former volleyball player tweeted yesterday, Dec. 5, that she hopes inspiring stories in the world of sports, as well as sponsorship of athletes, will continue even after the SEA Games.

“High morale ang lahat ngayon dahil sa #SEAGames2019. Sana ituloy natin yung ganitong pagpapahalaga sa mga atleta,” she said.

(Everyone has high morale because of the #SEAGames 2019. I hope we will continue to give this much importance to our athletes.)

She also stressed that support has to be given to those in the grassroots rather than only famous players.

Ho pointed out that the problem in sports is politics and corruption. Despite that, she said many see change happening and that younger athletes are standing up for their sports.

“Patuloy lang tayo, Pilipinas (Let’s keep this up, Philippines),” she said.

Ho herself is rallying behind the growth of beach volleyball in the country as a co-founder of Beach Volleyball Republic. The group aims to promote beach volleyball and organize tournaments around the country.  /ra
