MANILA, Philippines- Inaprubahan ng Senado nitong Miyerkules ng gabi ang tagumpay ng Philippine Skating at National Weightlifting teams na nagwagi sa Skate Asia 2022 at sa 2022 Asian Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships, ayon sa pagkakabanggit.

Sa unanimous vote, inaprubahan ng Senate Resolution No. 24, na bumabati at nagpaparangal sa buong delegasyon ng kanilang outstanding performance sa Skate Asia 2022 competition, na ginanap mula August 6 hanggang 14, 2022 sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Kasabay nito, inaprubahan din ang Senate Resolution No. 23 na bumabati at nagpaparangal sa Philippine National Weightlifting Team sa kanilang outstanding performance sa 2022 Asian Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships noong nakaraang July 15 hanggang 25, 2022 sa Tashkent City, Uzbekistan.

Si Senador Lito Lapid ang isponsor ng dalawang resolusyon na nagsasabing: “The exemplary performance of the entire Philippine delegation deserves the highest praise, recognition, and commendation for bringing pride and inspiration to the Filipino people and for showing to the world the unrelenting spirit of Filipino sports excellence.”

“Skate Asia 2022 is one of the world’s largest team recreation skating competitions which tour around Asian cities annually. According to the resolution, the Philippine team hauled 28 gold, 13 silver, and four bronze medals for a total of 45 medals,” ayon pa sa resolusyon.

Kabilang sa skate team ng bansa na sina Erphy Claire Mckenzie, Dawn Jasmine Gothong, Stacia Katherine Lee, Jodi Catherine Dino, Anicka Shanel Tan, Eriana Ericka Tan, Shekinah Vianne Angeles, Caitlin Geci Cos, Sophia Vielle Triste, Nadine Adrianna How Ong, Nicole Alessandra How Ong, Elisha Rae Villanueva, at Natasha Alisson How Ong.

“Many may not find ice skating to be prestigious, maybe because we don’t have winter here or maybe because there are few ice skating rinks in our country. I just want to use this opportunity to assure our great skaters that the Senate sees you and recognizes your achievements,” ayon kay Lapid.

Dagdag pa ni Lapid sa pangalawang resolusyon: “Meanwhile, the Philippines performed its best results to-date for this annual youth and junior weightlifting competition with a total of fifteen golds, two silvers and three bronzes, with the women weightlifters contributing all 15 golds, all two silvers and one bronze to this tally.”

“The Philippines ranked 7th in the Youth category with a summary score of 549/8 and ranked 9th in the Junior category with a summary score of 421/6, the country’s best finish in the history of the continental tournament,” sabi pa ni Lapid.

“Weightlifting is one of the sports that we are pushing here in the country. In fact, it was the only sport that gave us our first gold medal in the Olympics, through the heroism of Hidilyn Diaz. Here in the Senate, we need to encourage our weightlifters more to give glory to the country,” giit ni Lapid. Ernie Reyes
