Senator Nancy Binay said that she is one with the whole country in giving recognition to our very own Hidilyn Diaz who recently got a silver medal for the weightlifting division from the ongoing Rio de Janeiro Olympics – the first ever for a Filipina.
The senator is very grateful to Ms. Diaz and to the Lord almighty for ending the 20-year of drought when it comes to the Olympics medal – and now, we are just starting to hopefully garner more.
As Senator Binay advocated on the plight of women and children, she did not fail to mention that Hidilyn’s success is also the success of all Filipinas for having that fighting spirit, perseverance and patience that Ms. Diaz symbolizes for all Filipino women. Long live Hidilyn, she added.
