Hidilyn Diaz surprises the Philippines this morning, when she bagged the silver medal for the 53kg Division of Weightlifting in Rio Olympics.


Her silver win is the Philippines’ first medal since 1996 when boxer Mansueto “Onyok” Velasco bagged the silver in the Atlanta Olympic Games. It is the country’s third silver medal in the Olympics, and the first outside of boxing.

Diaz shared a video on Facebook where she expressed her deep gratitude to God for the blessing before the awarding ceremony.
