After Hidilyn Diaz’ historic gold medal in women’s weightlifting in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics, the Philippines assured itself with three more Olympic medals, all in boxing courtesy of Nesthy Petecio, Eumir Marcial and Carlo Paalam. Interestingly, all come from Mindanao.

Petecio fights for the gold today while both Marcial and Paalam shoot for at least a silver medal on Thursday, August 5. It is so far the best Olympics for the Philippines.
