The Duterte Administration is stepping into back-to-back historical movements for the resurrection of Pinoy Pride both domestically and globally.
Now after 20-years of loses, accidents and blunders, the Philippines takes dual-wins, with their Silver at 2016 Olympics in Rio; achieved by Hidilyn Diaz, as the country’s first female Olympian.

Despite Rio Riots and turmoil, the pressure of being the underdog, The Philippines kicks-off the 2016 Olympics with a win. Coached by, Antonio Agustin Jr., at just 25-years old, just over 5’tall, Hidilyn Diaz of Zamboanga City, Philippines proves to the world what ‘small but terrible’really means.
Reminiscent of the June 23, 2001 shocking win by Manny Pacquiao,when he TKO’d IBF Super Bantamweight title holder Lehlohonolo Ledwaba, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA with just a 2-week notice and as a last-minute replacement. (Small but terrible: Pacquiao started boxing at age 16 at just 4’11” tall),
Hopefully, this will inspire the new Duterte Administration to invest heavily in sports, the arts, small-business entrepreneurship and inventors. Many Philippines Presidential Legacies are domestic innovations; no administration has achieved global fame for the country by nurturing their own –until now.
