Just a short write-up for today! Word has been spreading that the figure skater Michael Martinez is the first Filipino figure skater competing in the olympic winter games. After hearing the news that he qualified for the Olympics made me so excited. Michael is an inspiration to all Filipino skaters out there, making us want to work harder to reach our goals. Seeing him at the opening ceremony was a great achievement for us as a nation, a moment of pure happiness. I along with many others are proud to be pinoy. The hard work, dedication, money, time and effort he has put into this one sport has certainly paid off. On friday morning (thursday night Sochi time) he will skate to the greatest 3 minutes of his life yet And if he skates well, the next 4. Both good luck and Congratulations Michael! You’ve made us proud.
