Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. had nothing but good things to say to Filipina golfer Yuka Saso after she took him the championship at this year’s US Women’s Open tournament.
In his vlog on Saturday, June 12, the Ilocano politiko said he personally knows Saso and has seen just how hard she works to achieve her dream.
“Biruin ninyo, lahat ng magagaling na champion na babae sa buong mundo a tinalo nya at siya ay 19 years old pa lang. Kilala ko yan si Yuka Saso and she deserves this very much dahil talagang trinabaho ‘nya nang husto ito, hindi lamang dito sa US Women’s Open kundi sa Olympics ay siya ay qualified at ilalaban natin sa darating na Olympics,” said Marcos.
He then asked Filipinos to continue supporting Saso as she pushes to compete in the Olympics.
“Suportahan natin at patuloy naman, masipag na bata ‘yan eh. Siguro makikita rin natin magkakaroon ng Pinay na No. 1 sa buong mundo,” said Marcos.
