Truly Pinoy pride.
Once again, Filipina weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz brings home the gold to the Philippines. This time, she did not only sweep one but three gold medals in the IWF World Weightlifting Championships.
The Olympic gold medalist joined the women’s 55-kilogram division and won gold in all three categories such as the snatch, clean and jerk, and total. What a powerful woman indeed!
