Alaminos City Mayor Bryan Celeste said the entire Philippines is already so proud of Filipina boxer Nesthy Petecio, who has a shot at a gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics.
This was the politiko’s message in a Facebook post on Sunday, August 1, after Petecio punched her way into the finals match for the featherweight division in women’s boxing.
Celeste first congratulated Petecio on her latest feat, just one more win before she can possibly become an Olympic champion.
“Isang panalo na lang at maaaring magkaroon na tayo ng isa pang gintong medalya mula sa ating mga atleta! Proud na proud kami sa ‘yo, Nesthy!” Celeste said.
“Nakaka-inspire ang laban mo. Good luck sa susunod mong laban. Go for Gold!” he added.
