Alaminos City Mayor Bryan Celeste is awed by the performances of Filipina weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz, now an Olympic champion, and boxer Nesthy Petecio in the Tokyo Olympics.
On Wednesday, July 28, the politiko congratulated Diaz and Petecio for ensuring the Philippines would take home at least two Olympic medals.
Diaz already clinched the gold on Moonday, July 26, while Petecio has secured at least a bronze medal finish after punching her way to the semi-finals.
“Namamangha ako na ito ang pinakaunang beses mula 1932 na marami tayong maiuuwi na Olympic medals. Ang pagkapanalo na ito ay mula sa galing ng Pilipinong kababaihan. Ang galing ninyo pareho, Nesthy at Hidilyn!” said Celeste in a Facebook post.
“Proud kaming lahat sa inyo. Good luck sa mga susunod na laban, Nesthy! Go for Gold!” he added.
