(The victory of our youth athletes is really something to be proud of because of the courage and excellence that they showed during the sporting event.)

“Higit sa lahat, ang kanilang tagumpay ay tagumpay ng sambayanang Pilipino kaya nararapat lamang po natin silang papurihan at pasalamatan,” the chairperson of the Senate Committee on Sports added.

(Most of all, their success is the success of the Filipino people that is why it is just fitting to praise and thank them.)

For Go, the team’s success is a testament that the government supports its athletes.

“Napatunayan po ng ating mga atleta na may lugar ang ating bansa sa naturang sport. Patunay din po ito na kapag may sapat na suporta mula sa pamahalaan at sa mga taumbayan, kayang magtagumpay ng atletang Pilipino sa anumang larangan na kanilang naisin,” the senator said.

(Our athletes proved that there is a place for the Philippines in the said sport. It is also proof that if there is enough support from the government and the public, Filipino athletes can triumph in any field that they want.)

Go pledged to continue providing the assistance that athletes need to pursue their endeavors.
