Michael Christian Martinez: 19th Place is Not Bad for the Lone Filipino Winter Olympian


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
No one can argue that Michael Christian Martinez really did a historic performance during the Finals of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. However, although crowd favorite as he was, many were not actually hoping for the medal. Being able to give justice to his performance and not to end up with obvious mistakes or injuries were mainly what most Filipinos were praying for. Landing as the 19th placer of the men’s figure skating finale is more than what we asked for. I just hope that Christian’s family insurance is comprehensive enough not just to cover him but also his emotional supporters:

The 2018 Winter Olympics is coming up and with or without support, this young and talented man, Michael Christian Martinez will only get better. He has all what it takes to be a champion in what he does but hard work is needed for sure. This is not the same as taking some online classes but he’ll get there. This time for sure, it will be different. The world has seen his potential and getting support will not be hard anymore. He can make the right choices now as he go along but trust that the Filipino people will be following his progress – win or lose! Any family insurance sponsors out there?

Charisma can win the crowd over technicalities. Although Michael Christian Martinez started like a rocket during his second stint – vying to make it through getting a place in the Finals, he had a shaky jump prompted his hand to position towards the floor. This is the main reason for the  score deductions. However, his determination, grace and skill not to mention the impressive flexibility drove him to still manage a great finale. Hold your breath while watching this because Christian would definitely need a good private health insurance:

Filipino Prince on Sochi Ice Skating Ground


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
There’s no boundaries for Filipino talents. They continue to excel even in sports not totally embraced or even not regularly practiced in their own country. Philippines is a tropical country and ice on ground are seldom seen unless they are generated artificially. Many years back, SM Malls were promoting ice skating facilities and even if they were popular, they were on and off. However  after Michael Christian Martinez’s first performance in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia – they will surely be getting bigger and better! It will not be a surprise that SM’s Forex index will be stronger because of this:

Pinoy Pride: Martinez qualifies for medal round with impressive Olympic debut

Looking like a young prince in his costume, Martinez, 17, wowed the crowd and left the TV announcers thrilled no end with his “stunning routine” while performing through the song entitled “Romeo and Juliet” of Arthur Fiedler.  http://ph.sports.yahoo.com/news/martinez-impresses-crowd-in-olympic-men-s-free-skating-debut-162636929.html


Some ice skating technical experts may say that Christian needs to do quadruple jumps to get a medal – but general viewers can’t actually see any flaws in his routine. His initial show down in the eyes of many Filipinos was perfect and even surpassed expectations. His moment at Sochi Olympics’s first try out belong to people who were watching him admiringly and most of them were in tears! It feels like getting listed again in the Forex Exchange market.
